    Simple Content Management??

    I've built a site using CSS and rather than me having to do all the simple updates to text/news upload pics etc. I could do with including an extremely simple CMS for someone with no experience to log in and make simple updates to selected areas - preferrably wysiwyg cross browser editor.

    Can anyone recommend one - I don't mind paying for it but it needs to be really simple to use... thanks for any advice.

    CMS400.net. Never used it, but might be worth a look?

    I've used phpNews in the past for exactly that purpose, don't know what it's like these days, but have a look.

    Basically, I have learned (being a newb myself) you can create what you want by simply following a few tutorials - which has helped me learn coding alot. I am in the process of completing my own CMS and learning to intergrate different features into it. If you do try coding your own, check out http://www.fckeditor.net/ so far I haven't any problems incorporating it into my site.

    Good Luck!

    I did the same as MrsDelley for one site I made. I Found the SitePoint series Build your own Database Driven Website using PHP & MySQL

    Part 1 here:
    http://www.sitepoint.com/article/php...1-installation

    There are also some good ones at DevShed:
    http://www.devshed.com/c/a/PHP/Build...-in-PHP-MySQL/
    or
    http://www.devshed.com/c/a/PHP/Build...ne-with-PHP-1/

    Hope that helps

    If you want a commercial product go with CMSimple. If you want an gpl open source the go with CMS Made Simple. The names are similar but they are two different products.
