I need to design a simple CMS website for a customer, only 5 pages, it requires self-maintain function and is on a low budget, what is the best way to do it?

I'd go with either Joomla, Drupal or WordPress.

Wordpress probably is the easiest to learn.

But I found its admin panel not very easy for some custome who has less IT skill to do the updating.

I thought about using Joomla, but form my previous experience, some customer still feel Joomla admin panel too complicate. This new site doesn't need to be blog format, I am not sure wordpress would be suitable choice.

I found CMS system concrete5. does any one know Adsence will be working on this application?

A person with zero IT skills shouldn't be updating web sites.

You could always build a simple one yourself. Using a WYSIWYG editor like tinyMCE as the guy's way of update his pages.

Re Frog CMS, took a quick look. The link to their admin demo [mydemo.opensourcecms.com] is 404. Doesn't inspire confidence.

Wolf CMS looks pretty light. Doesn't validate but it probably wouldn't be too hard to fix the errors. It's at version 0.7.5 though. So who knows about security. Still, it looks promising. I'm going to play around with it.
