After many years of hand coding pages, I decided it was time to look at using a CMS to make managing things simple. I had a look at Wordpress and Joomla and Drupal, but I felt that they tended to get in the way rather than helping. What I'm really looking for is something that allows me to hand code the main part of the page, but enables extras, such as allowing readers to enter comments on a page. I'd upload pages to a directory on the server via ftp, but then I'd log into the system and put a description of what I'd just uploaded and it would generate a table of contents which I could include on the pages.
There are lots of other features I'd hope such a system would have - the sort of things that appear in the sidebar of a typical CMS.
Does anything like this exist? (preferably free)
