I have recently started out in the website design world (feeling VERY much like Alice!), and am trying to get my head around CMS.
Starting to explore Contribute/Joomla/Wordpress and although I understand the manipulating templates/coding part of things, how does the CMS process work?
As in, at which point do you, the developer/designer, put into use Contribute, or Joomla etc for the client, and then how does the customer use it? Do they have to install Contribute at their end?
I am about to start a website for a client with a face-painting business who wants a simple 3-page site (home, gallery, contact), and wants to be able to update the gallery page. How do I start with Contribute or Joomla? I have tried to wade through the mountains of info I found online, but can't seem to find the BEGINNING!
Thanks in anticipation!
