    Hey,

    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.

    Thanks

    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: http://getkirby.com/blog/one-pager

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

    Little late about this – but still I would now 2017 recommend using Storyblok. It shouldn’t take more than 1 hour to get your page ready for your client. You can also scale to enterprise websites using Storyblok.

    npm install storyblok-cli -g
    storyblok quickstart
    

    and you got hosting and a local environment all set up.

    For one page website with some static sections and dymanic news
    Utuki can be good option: https://utuki.com
    It’s 1Mb weight only and looks nice
