HTML vs CMS
by paul_sweb - 8/28/12 6:39 AM
I've recently started in a marketing role at a new business and am in discussions with our head office to get a new website built for our retail business.
I have requested that the new site has a fully editable CMS (I've used EpiServer and Joomla in the past), however the head developer at Head Office has said he want's to build the new site in HTML without a CMS and load content direct from a database.
Instinctively, I'm fairly certain this is the wrong choice from a design and SEO point of view but I'm not sure of the benefits of a HTML site vs CMS aside from the editability point of view.
Does anybody have any thoughts on how a site should be built or the advantages of a HTML based site over CMS?
