    Question Adding a CMS to current site?

    Hello,

    I posted before on a CMS but I figured this might make more sense as to what I am looking for.

    Currently I have a site that is in HTML format. I want to add a CMS to this site only on certain sections of each page. For example, I would like my clients to edit only one paragraph on the "About" page.

    Is there a CMS that I can incorporate into my site?

    Is there one where I can put in div tags? For example:

    <div class="CMS"> All Editable Content is here </div>

    I appreciate anyone's help!

    Have you ever seen CushyCMS? Sounds like the sort of thing you're after.

    I have seen this, but I wanted something I could incorporate myself, where I don't have to go outside of the site to login and manage content.

    Any other thoughts?

    You'd appreciate jQuery jeditable - need to make the backend handler for it though, and work out some security, shouldn't be too hard.

    This looks interesting.

    Any ideas on how to create the backend handler for it?

    If you dont use JS and you dont know PHP then I cannot guide you through that learning process.

    Learning how to use jQuery is not the same as learning JS though so if you can get the jQuery working and follow the examples on that page, then come back.

    You might be better off making sure you can do something really simple just using html and PHP. Look for a simple PHP tutorial.

    Once you learn a little basic PHP, a simple framework like Retro may make it easier to build a blog or comments application. The author has made several videos to guide you through the process.
