  2. Availabilty of Plugins and Module. Alot of CMS systems come with limited functions and if you want any extra functionality to your sysem you will need to install plugins and modules to add those specific functions you desire.
  3. The template designs available. Templates are basically the layout of the website that is how the website will look so some CMS systems have a limited number of template designs that one could use on their site.
  4. Does it have Blogging Capabiltites. Alot of users what to be able to run a blog on their websites now. So i would suggest choosing a CMS system that has blogging capabilities.
  5. Availablity of technical Support. Whenever a person starts using a CMS system there willl come a time when they need help to accomplish a given task but the problem is not all CMS have the ability to offer technical support so choose one that has this option.
