    Creating a content management system

    I'm creating an internal website for my work and the marketing person needs to be able to update various aspects of the site. I am going to be creating a content management system for it, but don't have any experience doing it, so I'm trying to get some tips from the pros. The website is an ASP.net MVC project with a SQL back-end. I've been researching content management systems and found that a lot of people are recommending coding it in PHP. However, I've also been recommended not to mess with PHP since we've already got all the C# ASP.net etc. Can I code CMS in C# or Javascript, or a mix of the two? Or just go ahead with PHP? Any other tips or recommendations for building this are more than welcome as well. Thanks!

    If you have a website in ASP.NET I suppose the best would be to use a CMS powered by that language, too. You don’t have to reinvent the wheel, there are plenty of readymade CMSs you can use and adapt to your needs out there already.

    Yes I get that and that is a path that's being considered, but we are also considering building one ourselves. Just trying to do some research into what exactly it takes to make just a simple one, the basics of how it's done, scope, etc.
