Instead of USING the CMS, though, people with zero experience designing web pages have been editing pages and adding new ones by just copy/pasting my work.
Client: Why does this page look like this? Why aren’t those images the same size?
Me: I don’t know who put those there and I didn’t create that other page, but I could fix it and make it look nice.
Client: It shouldn’t have to be fixed, I pay you to make my website.
Me: Yes, but you don’t pay me to moderate your employees’ page edits.
