    I need a CMS to do this...

    Hi

    I've been asked by two separate clients for the same functionality within a CMS. This is what I need:

    • list of products in several categories
    • user can select products they are interested in (check box/button)
    • user then provides contact details (name, email, phone no)
    • email goes to the company giving the contact details and details of products selected
    • company can then contact the user to discuss the products


    So similar to, but not as complex as, a shopping cart. Now, I know how to do this using PHP/MySQL from scratch, but I don't know which CMS might allow me to do this.

    The CMS I currently use (which I inherited) is CMS Made Simple, which is great for basic sites, but very difficult to add extensions.

    I looked at Joomla a while back, but it looked too complex for the user.

    Any ideas on what open source CMS would allow me to do this? Or one that is fairly straightforward to adapt?

    Many, many thanks!
    Jo

    For anything like this I use Textpattern which is a snap to add extra functionality since you can include PHP code within any of the forms and templates. This makes it extremely useful and you can set up simple templates for a client to fill in with no problems. If you allow the client just author acess then you can lock them out of screwing with the template and form code as well.

    Thanks. That's really helpful. I'd never heard of Textpattern. I'll give it a go.
