    with a CMS?

    My client wants me to change the site into a CMS and I'm looking at Drupal, Mambo, Joomla, and other CMS (including the free open source ones).

    My knowledge of PHP is kinda limited, but it appears that these top CMS suites will make it easier. What's the exact learning curve, though? Thanks.

    In order to pratice the CMS I'm going to use my own ftp server instead of the clients, so there won't be any disruption on theirs.

    Some of these CMS systems can be quite complicated. I think the choice rests on what the website owner requires the system for (and the intended scale). If they need all the features of an all-singing all-dancing CMS then sure go for one like Joomla, but if all they need is to edit the text of one or two pages occassionally using a web-based interface, then a much simpler solutions such as the free CMS Editpoint can help things.

    Wordpress is a blogging cms, but its so easy to edit and use that you can make a website from it. Just a knowledge of css and a little php is all you need.

    If you don't want to manage a full online CMS you can also get PC based DB to HTML systems. These keep the database on a local PC and use software to create lots of individual static pages.
    They canít do everything an online CMS will but you only need to install the software so itís much easier to use and set up. They have templates similar a blog so can create very reliable, lightweight pages that can be uploaded to any server.
