Hope you're all doing alright!
For my new website, I'm looking for a very simple CMS.
Preferably one that works offline.
It should meet the following requirements:
1. It should be very simple
2. It should be an offline tool. Manually uploading the files is no problem.
3. It should produce static html
4. It should allow me to create a rather large navigational menu
5. It should allow me to list articles/pages under multiple categories.
6. Since this is for a non-profit site the software should be either free or very low-cost.
That's basically it :-)
As I said it should be very simple to work with, there must not be a steep learning curve.
I realize that maybe the above requirements take me to an old piece of software. That also, is no problem.
Please let me know your suggestions.
It is much appreciated!

Try Kompozer - it's free and has basic site management via FTP and says that it lets you use templates. If you're not talking about a huge site, this could be enough to get you going at least.
If your site gets to 20+ pages and you feel like it's not working for you, maybe you'll have a better idea of what you want in a CMS and importing 20 pages should be easy.
My site is going to be bigger than 20 pages.
I think I'll stick to Blogspot for now.
It has its disadvantages, but it's very simple to work with. Which is what I'm looking for.
Thank you for your concern!
