    Purple Herring Project

    I am a homeless designer looking for a CMS.
    My problem is that i am clueless when it comes to PhP (a Purple Herring Project???)
    I prefer the comforts of the front end but my friend is begging me to help him with his website: a business card site, with some static info pages and also a blog.
    I need a CMS solution that he can update on his own, the static pages and the blog.
    Help! Is there a home for a PhP-less primitive like me?

    I would be tempted to keep the static business card site seperate from the blog (so have the blog running in a subfolder independantly from the site), and use a dedicated blog solution like wordpress to handle that... theres no need to get too complicated with a full blown CMS "be-all-end-all" solution unless you need to

    thanks for the quick reply

    i hear what you are saying
    for a small site your suggestion is probably a good one

    1. how would i go about setting up WP in a subfolder of the site? (is there a tutorial?)
    2. if i use WP as a blog only, do i need to know php to apply my own theme?
    3. what is the quality of code output that WP produces? (meaning will WP chew up my standards compliant html/css and spit out a mutant clone?!?!)

    thanks again for the help
