    Cms

    can anyone recommend a free, reliable and easy to use CMS. my church is looking for a website that can be updated like a word document as many of the users have very limited HTML knowledge....i however have quite a fair amount and will be running the site for them....just that to speed things up it wud be easier for the individual to update their section rather than go through me and that is why i would prefer it to have a word document like editor....

    Barney,

    Does your church's webhost allow SSI (server side includes)?
    ... and Perl (CGI)?

    If they do, private message me ... I might have a simple solution for you.
    (also, give me a link to their site so I can see how the sections are layed out).

    Mambo

    Mambo is one of the most popular - it's extremely simple yet completely versatile. It's got WYSIWYG editors for all of it's components - 5 different user permissions, blogs, forums, banner system etc... and at any time you can shut off any components you don't want - there is also numerous support communities available.

    Also PHP Nuke which is just a bit harder to customize but is excellent nonetheless.

    Opensourcecms

    I want to stress that I have NO experience with CMSes (other than WordPress, which is great! ), but on OpenSourceCMS, e107 gets better ratings and more favorable comments than Mambo, which I've often seen described as complicated and heavy.

    It may seem a lot of work, but I think giving them a test drive is the best way to experience installation, administration, editing, etc. so you can establish which CMS works best for you.

    Don't forget that, for example, someone who's fluid in PHP might find customisation a breeze because they can alter the templates to their own desires; if you're not, you may have a very different look on things.
    Regards,
    Ronald.

    when I was turned onto mambo I didn't know anything about php. I loaded it up which took about 10 minutes including upload and then bam I was changing text around, adding stories, putting banner ads in and up to my elbows in some of it's great features.

    I'd suggest finding some screenshots or documents on each and reading over them until you're confident about what you want.

    good luck
