    Hey guys,

    Im wanting to get familiar with implementing a simple CMS into my static websites. I have heard that WordPress, Joomla and Drupal are fairly good. Are there any other simple CMS's out there or if not, which one out of those two would be the best for me (having very little experience in implementing them).

    Also any tips or advice would be great

    Regards,
    Haydee

    I personally love WordPress and Joomla, but for your first time i'd have to go with WordPress is the most 'user friendly' CMS, and there are plenty of amazing free themes for it.

    It all depends on what "easy", you are looking for, and your skill level.

    If you're looking for "easy" use for you or clients, then wordpress is probably the starting point. In my opinion ( I haven't used any in a few years, so this may not be the case anymore), wordpress menus and how you add content was the most user-friendly. Most decent hosting providers have one-click installs, and their are tons of themes out there to customize it with.

    For actual template customizations, I here that joomla is probably the easiest. I do remember making some templates for wordpress, and they were tough to get to work just right.

    Joomla can be a little confusing to use until you understand their process.

    Give CMS From Scratch a go if your looking for something very basic and works well. Joomla and Wordpress are amazing CMS but they to take time to setup and learn. Whereas CMSfS is a very very quick (literally 10 minutes) cms to learn and will do exactly what you want.

    Hope this helps.

    If you are looking for something not to complicated,but you can still add articles..You can check this tutorial out
    http://www.elated.com/articles/cms-i...oon-php-mysql/
    But if you want to use Wordpress or Joomla,I would suggest you to use wordpress,I had some bad experience with Joomla..when I install a theme,on the homepage its all good,but when I read some articles or go on some other pages,theme turns to default theme...take a weak or so to learn some CMS that you like,and you wont be beginner anymore

    Did you test it on Joomla 1.6/1.7? This is implemented within the Joomla Article Generator (when you install joomla it asks if you want to install the sample data) Its quite easy to fix. If you go to the template manager, you can check and uncheck specific templates for different menu's.

    This wont happen if you install a fresh copy of Joomla without the sample data.

    Just to be different (since everyone always says WP)... give PyroCMS a look. www.pyrocms.com It has a theming engine, but works a bit differently than WP.

    I personally like wordpress and joomla. But for a beginner I think you should build simple CMS from scratch and get good idea how it should work . Then you will realize how easy to use and configure popular CMS like wordpress and joomla
