    Need help recognizing a CMS system

    Hi,

    A client has requested a rebuild of a former site, but I have no idea what CMS system they are using. This is a picture of it. Unfortunately thats the only thing i have to work with in terms of recognition.




    Otherwise can someone recommend a good CMS server that is very user friendly. The client wants to be able to update easily but has no real working knowledge of html.

    We were considering using joomla for this.

    Hm, this could be anything, really. It could even be a commercial software. Can’t they give you a screenshot of the source code or of the login page or soemthing like that? Certainly, somewhere must be a signature of the software. If you’ve got some time you can go to http://opensourcecms.com/ and try out the demos.

    As to the recommendation I guess Concrete5 is pretty good for people without much knowledge. Since it has an in-site editor you can specify the sections that you want to make editable and it can be edited right on the front-end side so it’s visually clearer for people without much knowledge what they are editing.

    Yeah i looked in the source and the login page looks like it was customized so there's really no trace of what it could be. The site was also made around 2 years ago so yeah, it really could be anything

    Surely there are some of the copyright notices still knocking about in the code somewhere if it was one of the GPL type licences, (they love plastering it in every file), or a copyright file in the base dir if it is something like a BSD licence.
