  • A SIMPLE CMS system - recommendations?

    I am looking for a simple CMS system for my site...

    What I want:

    * PHP/MySQL
    * Dynamically generated pages
    * Template-based
    * Creating "elements" which can be included on each page (such as menus)

    What I DON'T want:

    * An integrated forum. Obviously.
    * Calendars, polls and other rubbish
    * Thousands of readily made templates.
    * Members. I don't want an integrated membership system.
    * WYSIWYG editors or anything like that.

    In short, I just want something simple that lets me create and update sections and pages. Possibly with integrated news posting. That's really all I want, but all the CMSs I have looked at so far seemed hell-bent on taking over my site with integrated this, integrated that, bla bla bla. I just want something SIMPLE! Come on, something like that has got to exist, right? ...

        I was going to say that but didn't bother to.

        Anyway, I'm coding my own CMS, it intergrades heavily with my website.

            I don't know if you are willing to spend more money on another script. www.MiraServer.com is a great script and you can make it anything you want it to. It's $159 and it's a great script.

              What I want is so simple that someone would be ashamed to charge anything more than $10 for it.

                    Write your own. Read a few PHP/MySQL tutorials. I hope your not that cheap.

                    Use password protection with MD5 to get in.
                    Add pages to pull information from/to the database.
                    Write your templates and insert them into the database.
                    Have the pages pull the information from the database and call the templates.

                    Just some basic information. It shouldb't be hard since you want something simple

                        what's the difference between a cms and a portal?

                          Quoted from something I found a while ago:


                          Difference 1:

                          A CMS DOES NOT MEAN THE WEB or HTML!!!! It is a system that can
                          "manage" content. That content could be word docs, parts lists, Digital
                          Video.. etc.

                          A Portal is 100% Web Based.


                          Difference 2:

                          A CMS can publish raw data to many different types of output...

                          A Portal is 100% HTML output.


                          Difference 3:

                          A "good" CMS is abstract and "generic".

                          A Portal is specialized and targeted.


                          Difference 4:

                          A "good" CMS will contain an abstraction of the publishing process to
                          incorporate permissions and workflow.

                          A Portal "usually" has a limited concept of customizable work flow.

                            I think I may actually take a shot at it. Can't hurt to try.

                              evo-articles

                              I am using a CMS program that I think may fit your needs. It is called evo-articles. You can check it out in action at http://theblogsite.com . They are located at http://www.evo-dev.com/. On my site, you'll see some polls, links, and things, but they are not part of the script... they are were added separately. evo-articles is template based and can allow comments on articles with its internal capabilities, or if you want, you can have it point to vBulletin for comments. Not sure what the current cost is, but I think its like $99.
