A CMS is typically a piece of software. A blog is a type of website that features content in the form of *posts* that may or may not allow visitors to comment. I strongly support the above statements.

I'd like to put a different spin on what others have said. A CMS is typically a piece of software. A blog is a type of website that features content in the form of *posts* that may or may not allow visitors to comment. A CMS may very easily contain a blogging module, a news module and an articles module. The market niche for Wordpress, Movable Type, etc. are in fact, content management systems. They just focus on features that you typically find on a blog site. -- Randal Rust R.Squared Communications www.r2communications.com -- * * Please support the community that supports you. * * http://evolt.org/help_support_evolt/ For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archives of thelist go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt !
