    CMS with Dreamweaver

    ZeeA Level 1
      is there a simple way to add basic CMS capabilities to site made using
      DW CS3!
      perhaps using a plugin?!

      thanks

            though you might have more luck at http://www.adobe.com/contribute/ ;)

            That is a good solution for static files .. I would recommend creating a CMS
            if there is a database involved.

                  Oh, yeah. I've got one client who uses it regularly to update her
                  site - and one volunteer organization that is going to have to figure
                  it out by September because I've told them I won't sit on the board
                  again!

                  It's a neat little tool.

                  Now I'm on the lookout for something that would be just the next level
                  of complexity: same idea of dropping a single code block into a page,
                  but store the info in a database instead of a text file.

                  (And I've just installed Drupal, but haven't a clue what to do with it
                  now that I've got it...)

                    I would take the time to learn Drupal. Although I haven't yet done this, I
                    believe it's worth the effort and will enable you to implement everything
                    from ContentSeed on up....

                      I know, I know... I'm having a hard time getting my head around some
                      of its terminology.

                      Besides, it's becoming easier and more cost effective to hire
                      specialists to do the heavy lifting!

                        I use WordPress as a CMS - it stores all the info in a database and the best part about it is that you can implement it so many ways, from a blogging site (the most used implementation) to "pages" and such.
                        I like that there is a totally huge support system behind it keeping it secure and developing all sorts of cool widgets that you can install as plugins (they don't require anything from the site visitor, so not like using flash or quicktime plugins)
                        I haven't tried Drupal yet, but I suspect it is similar in the way its database and implementation is structured.

                        What's really great about both WP and Drupal is that most php hosts have Fantastico, which will install WP or Drupal automatically, creating the correct database and setting up all the permissions correctly.

                        What looks good about Content Seed is that it is available for different server platforms - something not true about WP or Drupal.

                          You're welcome! ContentSeed is quite nice - for a small site. All
                          the content is actually stored in a text file, not a database; it's
                          not nearly as robust as a true CMS is.
