    User friendly CMS for clients?

    Hello, I am a fairly new web designer. I create simple websites with HTML/CSS/Java, sometimes other languages, etc. However some of my more recent clients have been asking if I provide them with some type of CMS to help them edit their websites themselves.

    Does anyone know of a CMS I could implement into my websites so clients can go in afterwards and make changes such as edit text, replace images, etc, just basic stuff.

    I've heard you can optimize an html website to be editable in WordPress, but I am not sure how to go about that personally as I have little experience in WordPress, Drupal, or any WYSIWIG editors such as those.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    If Java is running on the server you cannot use Wordpress. You can implement a javascript editor like these:

    Before you go any further...Java or Javascript? They're different?

    With that said, I'd suggest something like Joomla or Drupal depending on the site in the very short run, with eyes toward building a better site with your own CMS in the long run.

    WordPress is for beginners . You can use WordPress if you have less programming knowledge . If you have good programming knowledge use Drupal Magento and Prestashop is for eCommerece sites . .

    I've used nearly all CMS platforms and here is my personal recommendation:

    Wordpress - simple interface, easy to use. Great for basic websites. Avoid Wordpress plugins that are new or don't have a large following because they are usually insecure and result in ongoing security issues.

    Joomla - Users tend to struggle with using Joomla's interface. It's a bit complex. I'd recommend avoiding it.

    Magento - The interface is good to use, but Magento has a heavy server overhead.

    Drupal - The user interface tends to confuse users. I probably would avoid this.

    I think WordPress is an ideal choice for beginners, it's very friendly and also easy to use.
