We recently changed our own website to a content management system (CMS), while retaining our previous site design, to demonstrate that CMS sites can be custom designed and unique. However, content management systems are generally used for sites that are owner maintained or maintained by multiple users, or sites that include functions such as event calendars, online stores, multiple blogs, news feeds, and internal pages for staff.
