1. A content management system (CMS), comprising:
a plurality of servers configured to execute operations of the CMS, the CMS is connected to a network for providing access to a client device, and an editor application, wherein the editor application provides an interface for editing a content page in the CMS, and said content page is associated with a plurality of content components referenced in the content page, and each content component of the plurality of content components is arranged in accordance with a logical hierarchy defined for the content page;
a server of the plurality of servers is configured to generate a graphical tree view displayable via the interface for editing the content page in the CMS, the graphical tree view presents content components in accordance with the logical hierarchy of the content page in the CMS, wherein each of said content components is selectable via the graphical tree view, wherein the graphical tree view represents said content components having attributes structured in accordance with a content model in the CMS, the content model defining a plurality of content types in the CMS from which said attributes of the content components are defined, the content model further defining relationships between the content types that govern the logical hierarchy of the content page in the CMS;
wherein a relationship of each content component to the content page is determined by reading a composition attribute of a reference from the content page to the content component, such that when the composition attribute identifies the content component as being external to the content page, then the content component is rendered in the graphical tree view by default in a collapsed configuration, and when the composition attribute identifies the content component as being internal to the content page, then the content component is rendered in the graphical tree view by default in an expanded configuration;
a server of the plurality of servers is configured to generate an editing view in the interface responsive to selection of one of said plurality of content components from the graphical tree view, the editing view provides access to editing fields related to said selected content component; and
a server of the plurality of servers is configured to transmit the user interface to the client device, the user interface includes the editing view and the graphical tree view presented simultaneously, such that the editing view presented maintains a correlation to a relationship position of the selected content component in the logical hierarchy defined for the content page;
wherein the graphical tree view of the content page provides a parallel structure to content presentation of a website page that is separately hosted apart from the CMS, the website page is configured to implement application programming interface (API) calls to the CMS for accessing content edited for the content page, said edited content being included in the content presentation of the website page.
