small cms

    Hey guys,

    I am looking for a small cms ala cushy or pagelime. So its supposed to be very small, and very easy to use for a client.
    However it has to be installed on my own server, and i would like it to use mysql and php not a css selector.

    Have you guys got any tips for me, it will save me alot of work :)

    You might consider using WordPress. I recently wrote an article about why I use and recommend WordPress here. The short version:

    • it’s easy for (stupid) clients to use[/*:m]
    • it’s easy for (stupid) designers to theme[/*:m]
    • it’s frequently updated and security patched[/*:m]
    • there’s a ton of functionality available through plugins[/*:m]
    • search engine friendly out-of-the-box[/*:m]
    • it’s free (beer) and free (speech)[/*:m][/list:u]

      If you do decide to go with WordPress, Chris has written a ton of tutorials on this site to get you started.

    I’ve just recently discovered a CMS called "Pulse CMS", which has been EXTREMELY easy. It’s got a few odd bugs though, like where the files are telling the server where the files are located, but with some basic tweaks it’s way simple to use on the client end.
