CMS for Dreamweaver designed site

Tags: #dreamweaver #cms

HI, I designed an 8 page website for a friend with dreamweaver cs3 and he would like to access the pages himself to make text changes from his own PC.


Is there a CMS that he can download and use to change text and images on a website desinged with CS3, I see from other discussions Webassist and Cushycms mentioned, but are they suitable for CS3 designs.


Thank you

    There's no such thing as a CS3 design. HTML is HTML. It's plain text readable by humans.


    Start with CushyCMS. It'll work well for a very small site. Got a link to the site so we can take a look?

    This should have been discussed & in your contract well BEFORE you began buiding the site.  It costs more and requires extra coding to make a CMS site.  I hope you plan to bill for all the extra work involved.


    #1 find out if your client's server supports PHP & MySql.  This will be required for just about any CMS you decide to use. 


    #2 The CMS you choose will depend on 4 things:

         a) your coding skills,

         b) client's  requirements,

         c) your server's programming languages,

         d) project budget.


    Below are some links to look at:




    Perch ($59 license per site)

    PHP & MySql required


    Media Carbon (formerly called "Content Seed")

    No databases required

    Available in ASP or PHP "Seed" versions


    WebAssist Power CMS Builder (Extension for DW) Now bundled with Design Extender


    Adobe Business Catalyst (subscription includes CMS & web hosting)





    Get Simple CMS -

    PHP, no database required.


    e107 CMS

    PHP & MySql required



    PHP & MySql required



    PHP & MySql required



    PHP & MySql required


    Concrete 5

    PHP & MySql required
