Let's say I have detailed information about 500 different widget factories. Information such as factory hours, yearly sales, number of workers, location, average wage, safety inspections, etc. I want to create a different web page profiling each factory (500 total). I am not a huge techie, so as it stands now, the only way I know to cut down this workload is to create 500 different pages using server-side includes and typing the information into each page.

However, I am looking for a script that would generate web pages for each factory's profile. I would like it to generate the pages with html headers and footers that I provide. I would also like the ability to edit the information easily on a go-forward basis as well as the ability to have search-engine friendly URLS (perhaps through mod_rewrite).

I have spent many hours today looking through script archives and searching CMS threads here to no avail. Is anyone aware of such a script (preferably in PHP)? I don't need a lot of the fancy bells and whistles of many CMSs ... primarily just the functionality mentioned here.

Thanks for the reply. I have looked at the features of all of the CMSs you described, but I did not see the functionality like I described above. Please correct me if I am wrong. I am basically looking for a script to auto-generate a content page for each "widget factory" given a set of data. I do not want to have to edit each page within the CMS.
