    simplest cms

    What is the simplest free content management system to setup and use? I am not the best PHP programmer, so I'm looking for an easy one. Any ideas? I know that there are hundreds of cms's out there, but I'm looking to hear from people that have had some good experiences with specific versions.

    I would also like to see a very simple cms that I can understand. I found post nuke easy to install, but it's still way too complex for me to get an overview, let alone an in depth understanding of the scripting.

    hmm, cmsimple looks very good but it is NOT simple for a noobie to see how it is coded, which was my original question.
