    Website Baker?

    Has anyone here used the CMS Website Baker? I'm looking for a CMS while developing sites and so far the interface for this one seems the easiest to understand. Does anyone know how good of a CMS it is compared to a CMS like FrogCMS?

    I've used it. I'm not a php expert by any means, but I found it fairly easy to pick up. It depends on what you want to do though - cause it is very basic and there aren't too many modules to choose from.

    Have you thought of using Joomla or Drupal instead?

    Thumbs up

    I use WB all the time and absolutely love it - it's really very good for brochure style websites. Here's some reasons why:

    - It's easy to install and get things up and running.
    - It's very easy to create templates from scratch - just apply code snippets for parts of the pages where you would like to use WB to update content and off you go.
    - I don't really have to train my clients on how to use it - they just get it!
    - The search engines love WB! Partly I think because of the page names and folder structures.
    - Adding modules isn't your usual nightmare - just do it from the back end and you don't have to make any code changes so it doesn't interfere with other mods.
    - The guys and girls on the forum are very very helpful and there is a friendly community.

    I feel it comes as close as it gets to creating DreamWeaver templates and building a website with that but you have the added bonus of the CMS and the addons. So if it's something like that you're after then I would definitely recommend it.

    For a look at some of my WB sites click here:

    Just let me know if you have any more specific questions!
