Easily create content by formatting text and uploading images. It's not necessary to know web programming languages (or hire someone who does) to get your content on the web.

 Control access with permissions.

Different people can have different levels of access to your content. Use Backdrop's robust permission system to define roles that exactly match your needs.

Building Panda.id.au with Backdrop CMS

Yesterday I launched the latest version of Panda.id.au, my personal blog, which I re-built from the ground up using the Backdrop CMS. This is my second Backdrop website to date; the first being my business site: PackWeb.com.au. A lot of work went into this seemingly simple, minimal blog website, so I thought I'd write about how I built it and how I contributed to Backdrop along the way.
