    Looking for a Content Management System

    I work on a website and the sheer size is forcing me to require others to help me with it. However these 'others' have no knowledge of coding skills so I need a CMS that will act as a WYSIWYG editor for them and let them make changes to various pages on the site.

    I would prefer if I could set 'permissions' per pages or simply a global permission that requires all edits be previewed by me for approval, showing the original material and the new stuff edited in by the user.

    I'll need multiple log-in capability and extensive logging so I can keep track of what everyone does. I've tried Etomite CMS (open source) but I didn't like the interface and it didn't offer the options I listed above.

    Does anybody know a CMS out there that's available that's at least similar to what I described? Free is preferrable, of course but I can afford to pay a bit so point me in whichever direction - thanks.

    Open

    Are you familiar with OpenSourceCMS? Here you can try out various open source CMS packages and test-drive most of their admin interfaces as well.

    No experience

    I can't share any experiences with you (simply because I don't have any), but perhaps you can try them out yourself.
    Personally, I would pay close attention to the quality of the generated markup (example sites may be available as well), and having dabbled with an e-commerce system a while ago I started to really appreciate flexible template systems; you might want to look for those, too.

    I worked with Mambo for a while, until our company switched to a different system.
    It's Open Source, and I find it easy to edit to accomodate your needs.
    You can also get a large selection of templates - from businesslike to creepy...

    I'm just working with Quick and Easy CMS and there you have different access permissons and a WYSIWYG editor (actually you have the free choice whether you use WYSIWYG or HTML input) and some other features. And they claim to produce valid code.

    Quick and Easy CMS looked amazing but the price tag was like a dagger in my stomach. Anybody know anything similar on a lower price range? (as broke as I am right now, 'free' sounds like a great range).

    ModX ?

    I've been eyeing up ModXwith quite some interest lately - though I've not had chance to install it any where, so I'm not sure it covers the features you require.

    Could be worth cheking the online demo.


    Kind regards,

    Gary

    I finally settled on http://www.cmsmadesimple.org/ - I fell love with it after first use.

    It's awesome. And free.
