CMS for Dreamweaver designed site

Mar 28, 2013 11:35 AM

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.
