I'd be very grateful for some advice. I'm building a simple site in terms of functionality and after playing around with Joomla I'm looking for alternatives.
I'm comfortable with HTML/CSS, it's a low traffic site holding several thousand articles, a mixture of pdf and html content, administrated by one person.
There will be about 12 categorised for the articles and therefore 12 article listing pages which will offer links to these articles.
The articles will be either HTML pages or PDF format thus the most important feature we need is the ability for the article listing pages to display and offer links directly to either the PDF or HTML content.
Also, the use of tags would be great, and the ability to search out (and narrow down) content based on tags.
So all in all a very simple site. No user permissions will be needed, no forums, blogs etc. A CMS with a simple learnig curve would be great.
I've been attracted to CMS made simple, Expression Engine and MODx for their simplicity. I'm also considering implementing it as static pages but as it will eventually grow to several thousand plus articles maybe that's not a good idea.
Any advice would be very gratefully received.
