    CMS means Content Management System... A Web CMS is essentially an application which is used to create and manage web pages of a site... At present two top CMS are - Joomla and Drupal...

    You don't need to be proficient in coding to use a CMS... But if you have some knowledge, that won't do any harm...

    Each CMS comes with its own terminologies and jargons... For layout and design of website, Joomla developers provide hundreds of free and paid online Templates... In drupal, they call it as Themes...

    For Joomla, there are thousands of extensions which can do ur job easier... U can do almost anything with your site... Using those extensions u can integrate calender, photo galaries, news events, Login Control, create forum, etc on your website...

    Visit Joomla! for more information...

    You can do little editing to ur templates using dreamweaver to change the look and design of ur website... But you sudn't do that if u r uncomfortable with coding...

    For a website which is gonna be large with thousand of pages and where the content needs to be added/modified on a regular basis, I would use Joomla... Else Dreamweaver...
