    CMS questions

    grooni Level 1
      I was hoping someone here would have any tips. I've recently started doing some freelance web design. I have a client interested in a CMS to update content, but they also want to be able to add pages.
      I'm not sure if I can handle it or if I should let someone more experienced do it. I haven't used anything more than cushycms. I do want to learn it however, I'm sure he won't be the last client interested in a CMS.

      Does anyone have any recommendation for a stable CMS? How's the learning curve? Any advice? Or online/book resources?

      Any help would be very much appreciated.

          Hi,

          You can try joomla as it a very stable and robust system.

          You can easily integrate your design and the user will have full functionality to add or delete the pages.

          Got to www.joomla.org

            you can try SiteLander (see the link in my signature).
            It's free for now.
            It's an all-in-one customizable template, web site builder and Content Management System. Very easy
            to use, and very versatile. You can sign up and create a testing account hosted on my site, to see
            how it works.
            If you want to install it on your server, it needs to support PHP with write access to files and
            folders.

              As well as Joomla, I use Wordpress for a lot of my clients.

                Here's a free one that doesn't require any programming either. Just
                hooks into your site via comments and FTP.

                  I've seen that mentioned a few times. I would fear a free online tool,
                  though, in terms of it still being there tomorrow.
