    I'm not sure this is the right place for this question, but here goes . . .

    I'm a web designer, rather than a coder, although I have some PHP knowledge. The sites that I design tend to be small, aimed at individuals or small businesses, rather than thousand-page megasites. Nevertheless, I would like some way for my clients to easily update their own sites.

    I'm looking for advice on how to make my site easily editable for clients. I think a full CMS like Mambo might be more than I'm looking for, and I'd rather have something more user-friendly and aimed at laymen. My requirements are:

    "friendly" URLs
    standards-compliant XHTML
    easy-to-use interface
    easily integrable within an existing XHTML/CSS site

    These requirements don't seem unreasonable to me, but I just can't seem to find anything that can do what I need. If anyone can help, that would be wonderful. Thanks!

    So... you want to write or to use an existing CMS?

    Just for reference, `friendly' URLs are not as easy as they might seem. In fact, I rarely see them in anything other than wikis...

    First thing to do... mosey on down to http://www.opensourcecms.com/

    There they have lots and lots of open source CMS systems; some feature-rich like Mambo, some very simple indeed.

    They have installed demos of pretty much all of them, so you can experiment and see what you think.

    You may find what you're looking for or you may not... but I'd certainly look at the hundreds of existing open source CMS tools before you start embarking on writing your own...

    Good luck!

    I have written one that you may be interested in but it's NOT FREE.

    It's ASP and Access or MySQL. Very easy to use and can be integrated into your OWN website unlike a portal cms like mambo. You buy it once then use Royalty free on as many sites as you want.
