    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.
