The last couple of websites I have built, I used MovableType as a makeshift CMS. Mainly because the content tags made it really easy to design a site using HTML and CSS and then insert the tags where i want the content. I don't know very much PHP, so I fear that CMS' like Joomla and Drupal will not allow me to break out of their boxy layout w/o knowing how to manipulate some impt. code.
The main reason I do not want to use MT again is that i need to have a paid subscription part of this site and I don't want to hack that together, i know most of the actual CMS's have user access controls.
I know it gets repetitive, but does anyone have a CMS that can do these things - content tags and user access restriction.
