Control panel to update any pages on entire site
Control panel to update any pages on entire site

 3:12 pm on Aug 8, 2006 (gmt 0)

Hello all. I do freelance web design work and typically I do smaller static sites. I have a new client that would like a site where they have a control panel that they log into and they can edit any page on the site I will create for them, create new pages, or delete pages all without knowing any bit of html. They'd want to add new articles to current pages, reorder them, set them to auto-delete after a certain amount of time, add related PDFs for users to download... all from a simple to use back office that utilizes the design I come up with.

Does anyone know if there is something out there out of the box that would allow me to set this up or is this something that I would need to have custom created by a developer? Any developers out there that have done something like this and would be interested in working on this project?

Any comments are appreciated. Thanks.

Joomla/Mambo or Typo3 could do this easily.

MovableType is probably the simplest option for static page generation.

I would look up ModX CMS. The probblem with most other CMS systems, is they expect you to design around their system. ModX is just the opposite. It is made to fit your design.

If you are looking for a base platform to master that you can use in almost any project you create, ModX is the one.

ModX CMS is still in beta though. It looks like it has some promise, but I usually prefer to wait until a product has reached 1.01 before I put it in control of a production site.

0.9.2 should actually be more like 1.5 and it's not in beta. It's completely stable. The only reason it hasn't hit 1.0 yet is because it was a branch of another system and they won't show 1.0 until 100% of that code is rewritten (which is close).
