Last year I really started getting into Wordpress, I thought it was a great solution to build sites instantly. Then, over time I started getting curious and began slightly editing existing templates which never really worked for me as I wanted to make them my own and had rather limited knowledge. So I tried building my own over and over again but just wasn't getting it right and gave up.
Now I have stopped seeking Wordpress as my solution and I'm building some great looking sites with CSS. Problem is, I just can't seem to get my head around how it all fits together LOL. I tried Joomla and that was worse for me...
So I was wondering, are there any (free) solutions out there that would simply allow me to build a site as normal and then perhaps enable certain aspects to become editable through some sort of online CMS? I hope I'm making sense here. I don't want to work with MYSQL or download/upload software, I simply want to be able to create a page with PHP and somehow login, click on parts of that specific page and edit the text or image - that's it.
Any ideas or recommendations? I would sit down and try learn but I have no time due to other commitments.

Have you had a look at Concrete5?
It's not for me, but it might be for you. I find it confusing because you can change things on one page and they don't necessarily propagate to other pages, but that sounds like you would see that as a plus. You *must* watch the how-to videos before getting started though (or at least I had to), because it's a totally different model than Wordpress or Drupal in terms of editing pages.
It might at least be worth watching the vids and see if it looks right to you.
