Chapter 17

Building Websites Using a Content Management System

This chapter is about building websites using a modern cross-platform Content Management System (CMS).
There are many choices of CMS for most web development platforms. For cross-platform C# and .NET web developers, the best for learning the important principles is currently Piranha CMS. It was the first CMS to support .NET Core, with Piranha CMS 4.0 released on 1st December 2017.
This chapter will cover the following topics:
  • Understanding the benefits of a CMS
  • Understanding Piranha CMS
  • Defining components, content types, and templates
  • Testing the CMS website

Understanding the benefits of a CMS

In previous chapters, you learned how to create static HTML web pages and configure ASP.NET Core to serve them when requested by a visitor's browser.
You also learned how ASP.NET Core Razor Pages can add C# code that executes on the server side to generate HTML dynamically, including from information loaded live from a database. Additionally, you learned how ASP.NET Core MVC provides separation of technical concerns to make building more complex websites more manageable.
On its own, ASP.NET Core does not solve the problem of managing content. In those previous websites, the person creating and managing the content would have to have programming and HTML editing skills, or the ability to edit the data in the Northwind database, to change what visitors see on the website.
This is where a CMS becomes useful. A CMS separates the content (data values) from templates (layout, format, and style). Most CMSs generate web responses like HTML for humans viewing the website with a browser.
Some CMSs generate open data formats like JSON and XML to be processed by a web service or rendered in a browser using client-side technologies like Angular, React, or Vue. This is often called a headless CMS.
Developers define the structure of data stored in the CMS using content type classes for different purposes, like a product page, with content templates that render the content data into HTML, JSON, or other formats.
Non-technical content owners can log into the CMS and use a simple user interface to create, edit, delete, and publish content that will fit the structure defined by the content type classes, without needing the involvement of developers or tools like Visual Studio Code.

Understanding basic CMS features

Any decent basic CMS will include the following core features:
  • A user interface that allows non-technical content owners to log in and manage their content.
  • A content delivery system that converts the content from simple data into one or more formats, like HTML and JSON.

Understanding enterprise CMS features

Any decent commercial enterprise-level CMS would add the following additional features:
  • Search Engine Optimized (SEO) URLs, page titles and related metadata, sitemaps, and so on.
  • Authentication and authorization including management of users, groups, and their access rights to content.
  • Media asset management of images, videos, documents, and...
