Ok, so let's say your brand new site is all ready to go, and all you have to do now is add its content. Cool! Quick question: does any of the following scare you?
<div id="logoWrapper"><a href="#" id="logo">
<img src="assets/images/clear.gif" class="link" alt="">
<!--[if (!IE)|(gt IE 8)]><!-->
<object data="assets/images/logo.svg" type="image/svg+xml"><img src="assets/images/logo.png" alt=""></object>
<!--[if lt IE 9]>
<img src="assets/images/logo.png" alt="">
</a> <!-- /#logo --> </div> <!-- /#logoWrapper -->
Yeah, we thought so. Don’t worry, that just means you’re normal. Most companies would love to be able to have a simple way to edit and add content to their site without having to be web gurus, or hire said gurus by the hour. And guess what? That’s exactly what a Content Management System (CMS) allows you to do. If you have the ability to type a search phrase into Google, then you too can be a CMS superstar! Trust us, it’s glamorous.
Do you know how to operate a keyboard? Sweet! You qualify as a CMS superstar.
And what exactly is a “blog” anyway? The term blog is slang for “web log” - which is just a collection of dated articles or entries about… anything you want really. In the bigger picture, a blog is really just a subset of a CMS in that it allows you the ability to add content to a section of your site without having to write any of that scary stuff above. And content, as they say, is king. We don’t know who “they” are either - but we do know that search engines will love you if you add content to your site on a regular basis. And since search engines lead visitors to your site, that’s pretty important.
Whether it’s a blog or a full-fledged CMS, Threshold creates that special sauce that allows you to be the master of your domain (no, we mean in a web sense). All you have to do is type and then hit the “easy” button, and see all of your content magically appear on your site in perfect style, having been transformed into standards based code at the click of your mouse. Pretty cool, eh?
