Hi!

I've been trying to find a good cms solution for my clients. I'm not looking for a full cms but one which is limited to some distinct areas I define in the webpages. I would like a system based upon php and mysql, where I can put some areas in the webpages I define. The user should be able to edit text and picture through a very simple backend, whith a list over the editable regions they can click on. The edit window should have a possibility to upload pictures and do some text formatting.

I know Macromedia have a program called contribute where I can define certain areas as editable, but it is dependent on the software being installed on the local machine, and it cost money.

I been looking in a jungle for a long time, so if someone have a script that can do this or know a link that does this I am grateful!

Have a nice day!

Well, you can look into sourceforge.net database for CMS solutions. Although, nothing is too simple in CMSs. Usually you have simple but poor, or powerfull but complex.

PostNuke's good, and fairly simple (at least for the end-user). Actually setting it up, and modifying it to look unique (and not just like every other PostNuke site) takes quite a bit of work, but less work than in many other CMS applications.

I've been using PostNuke for a few years now and absolutely love it. I'm in the process of setting up two new sites right now that will be using PostNuke to drive the site.

i would also suggest you have a look at http://www.mamboserver.com

im just getting into cms's, have been playing with quite a few and i have found mambo to be very easy to use.

but in the end it really depends what you want to do with the site, you have to pick a cms best suited to what your needs are as all the cms's have different strengths and features.

like leo said sourceforge is a great start.

i have also recently come across this site http://www.cmsdirectory.com/
