I'm currently developing a website for a school, with the following requirements in terms of a CMS:
- Be able to make changes to the main content
- Add events (to be shown on a calendar) or news items
- Have a gallery
I was initially going to do all of this myself, but after listening to the boagworld podcast I thought hang on, why not use a CMS like Perch? I've checked the Perch site and it's pretty much perfect - you can add events and news items so easily which is fantastic, but you can't easily place them onto a proper calendar. Likewise there's no feature to have a web gallery.
Is there anything else I should consider before just doing it all myself? Just think if I could use a CMS it'd be better for me, but also them as it'd probably be a bit more robust and have some nicer features than something I'd produce myself.
Don't mind spending a bit, but the school are on a super tight budget so I'm not getting a lot for it at all, so anything above £100 and it really wouldn't be worth me using it
