    What CMS for my site

    A family memeber is now running one of my sites www.expressivecandles.com. She needs to be able to edit certain features on the site such as news, scents, discriptions, change out products and prices. I do not have a CMS for the site yet and no database.

    I've come to the conclusion that I will need to add a database and possibly redo the site so I can use a CMS with it. I've never used a CMS before and have no clue which one would be better suited for this site.

    What CMS would you reccomend for this site and do you think I will have to re design the site around the CMS? Thanks for your help.

    As the site is primarily a shop then basing it on a shopping cart system would make sense.

    www.x-cart.com has a feature for editing content and adding extra content pages

    http://www.viart.com/ is another shopping cart system with built in CMS

    Thanks for the suggestion. I did not find any info on weather or not it can handle my articles and other content as well. But I'll download it and take a look at it. Would something like Mambo be too much for my needs? It seems like a monster of a CMS.
