    Arrow Simple CMS needed

    Im trying to find a very simple content management system.
    Basically, the admin should be able to change the content of the website with an advanced editor.
    There are different sections of the page that require on going updates.
    Not a huge website. maybe 15-20 pages.

    No other features needed.
    An easy template system would help.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Try Wordpress. It is very common, designs are available, mods are available, and it is pretty easy to skin.

    Try one of these three. All three pretty simple to setup and run.

    I am using e107 on one of my sites. Its a good powerful system but too advanced for this project.

    CMS made simple seems to fit the profile.
    But in the demo I noticed that if you want to edit the page, you can edit the content of one section only. I want to configure it so that there will be a side panel that should also be editable.
    You guys know if anything that exists?

    Joomla CMS is very easy to use ..
    So you can check it if you have MySQL support ..

    I know. I am using Joomla as well
    bah, didnt think the day would come where I would reject advanced functionality.

    Im looking for something very basic but with a WYSIWYG editor.
    mySql isn't a requirement and im not particularly bothered if its present.
    Also, no users are needed.

    Just the admin to be able to change the content - the text in the html pages.

    I would third e107!

    It's the best system I've used (and I've been a user of it for 3 years now).
    Outside of that there aren't many that I would recommend.

    I would fourth it. Its a good system but not suitable(too advanced) for this project.

    Doh!

    Sorry about that RaTz, I didn't see that you were the original poster when I was posting my response earlier in the thread!

    In that case your best option simply might be to get a web-based 'wysiwyg' editor.
    That way there's really no backend whatsoever but it would allow for easy online editting.
