Best CMS for a one page website

  • # March 23, 2013 at 4:20 pm


    I am in the process of building a client website which is a one page website which anchors to five different sections. The client has mentioned they want 4 of the sections to be static but a ‘News’ section which they can edit themselves. As this isn’t a “normal” website, would WordPress still be the most suitable CMS?

    I have heard Kirby is quite apt for this but have no experience in using it.

    WordPress would be pretty overkill for something like this. I’m not sure if Kirby is the solution, either. People have mentioned Perch here before.

    I don’t think Kirby is a bad decision in this case. Especially for a one page site. Check out this article:

    I was going to 2nd Perch – just because it has those blog/news tools built into it. But I’m wondering if something like Pagelime wouldn’t be the right choice.

    This article breaks down some nice CMS options, including Perch. Obviously, WordPress, Debian, and Joomla are options as well. Hope this helps.
