    [S]I think Concrete5 is pay[/S] Disregard, I looked it up. Anyhow, you may charge to design templates or set these up. You can't, however, charge for the software itself. A CMS is a great way for clients to edit their own sites. Most require PHP and MySQL, but some are built on ASP, or other server-side languages. Still, others don't use a database, but write to other, usually XML-based files directly on the server. I like Joomla, but I find more most applications it's too much, even though I have built incredibly simple sites on it before. Wordpress is another I like, because it's easy to template and easy for the client to use. Many use another called Drupal, which I've never used myself. Whitehouse.gov is built on it.

    Great advice. I just have some ppl wanting sites. One wants to update his own photos for his art shop and another owns a car lot. He is wanting to update cars himself. CMS a good way to go on this?

    And the only thing i need is a fast, cheap, and easy way to give a client an admin page (or any way at all) to upload their own images. I really only need one or two pages. I do not care about templates or anything like that at all. I plan on doing all HTML, CSS, JS, etc. myself. I just do not want to build the admin page from the ground up myself. The clients couldn't pay for that to really be worth my time at all.

    what about domain names, tho. Does the site have to have their name involved or does having your own domain require paying? Can you host elsewhere?

    "Use your own domain name
    For example. cms.yoursite.com, or pick a subdomain of our clienteditor.com domain, e.g. yoursite.clienteditor.com"
    That line is confusing
