Content Management System

At it's core, websites are made up of 2 parts: the content (including text and images) and the layout. To edit content on flat, non-dynamic sites clients would have access to all the code of the page. Forget to close a single div tag and everything could break.

Content management systems separate content and layouts by using databases and templates. The content - editable via a backend admin site - is saved in a database. The layout - with all the html and php code - builds the pages based on the design and pulls in the content.

This site also has a dynamic registration page for travel to meetings, etc.  Based on the username/password the user is directed to a specific subset of documents for that specific destination.  This fun little bit of coding was done without modifying any of the cmsms core code.  These cms' are pretty powerful if you know how to bend it to your will.
