Hi Welcome to WebmasterWorld
I would suggest you to try Drupal for your work , i guess it would be fine for you to work out.

Thanks - how much easier is Drupal to manage though? I thought it was the same as Wordpress in terms of building themes?
Would it be simple enough to take a site I have now and easily plugin Drupal?

Try CMS Made Simple. The templates are built with HTML and CSS.

While their all unique in their own positive right, I would just love something simpler still.
For example on the content of my homepage, I could just specify a section that I can just edit on the screen (like a wiki).
I'm probably just being lazy LOL

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.

Have a look at NanoCMS- touted as the world's smallest CMS. It creates static html pages, but includes a php editor and includes for content and sidebars.

I just tried installing Concrete5 locally on my Mac using MAMP. Never had a problem installing Wordpress locally but I keep getting the following error with Concrete5
Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 1380 bytes) in /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/concrete/concrete/libraries/loader.php on line 45
@laertes - I'll have a look at NanoCMS now

In your php.ini file you'll have to bump up the available memory that php can use.
It should look like this -
memory_limit = 16M;
Try 32M or 64M.

thanks @BradleyT but in fact I have just found the solution I've been searching for (I think).
I needed something that did not consist of MYSQL etc on my server but just something that you could place a class in sections of your site and then login to edit.
I've just found CushyCMS of which I had looked at in the past when I was into my Wordpress and laughed it off. But in fact, this is the solution I've been crying for.
I've just done a test on my site and I basically just add class="cushycms" into a div or similar and that's it. I then log into my account and I can edit that section of my site through CushyCMS.
I'm so happy with that... unless someone knows of any flaws with this company that I should know about? LOL.
Thanks for all your help

Here's a look at some of the pros and cons in a discussion from last year:
Cushy CMS - Is it too light? [webmasterworld.com]
The consensus seems to be that it may have uses, but for most webmasters, it is indeed too light.
