If you have been a user of our original web site and don't attend meetings of the Tarkington Tower Owners Association board meetings then you were not able to hear my explanation, so here goes.
Roughly 4 years ago the board president, Nadine Harris, asked me if I would set up a site. I'm a retired IT professional although I had never operated in the web environment it sounded interesting. Our original idea was to take advantage of web site generators but after researching possibilities it was determined that those were too simplistic and delivered very little flexibility. Addition research identified the fact that what we needed was a "content management system" - a CMS. A CMS is a structural framework that serves as a platform to deliver content. There are several such CMS offerings out there and we chose the one that had the most support and for us that was a CMS called, "joomla!". Supposedly joomla means communicate in some language, but I've never been able to verify that as a fact.
