Hi Gavin,

There is a really really basic CMS system I've come across in the past, but it's not the most pretty.


Might be a good starting point to get to where you want to be.

Hi Guys,

I'm in the process of building a very small site for a client and want
to give them a small CMS to allow them to add & edit pages as they
wish, generally following this list of objectives:-

1) Allow the administrator to add, edit, delete pages (including
sub-pages probably only require two levels)
2) A simple HTML editor (will probably use FCKEditor)
3) Allow admin to edit Meta's (e.g. Keywords, Descriptions) for each page

Ideally would like to have a nice clean & minimal solution - I am just
looking at other CMS's on http://php.opensourcecms.com/ for
inspiration on layout/design etc... Does anyone know of a
'lightweight' CMS that does this, while still looking 'clean &
minimal' which is simple to use from a users point of view.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated ;-)
