I am about to create a website for someone using dreamweaver, but he is interested in a CMS setup (preferably browser based). He doesn't have a big budget for custom cms or anything substantial but wants wysiwyg ability.

I've personally never used any or created one, so does anyone have suggestions for a low cost easy to use cms?

Anyone used Mambo, or even Macromedia's Contribute?

Easiest to use "out of box" I would argue is articlelive. But at $239 it is certainly not the cheapest. My computer illerate mum figured it out instantly.

Out of the free CMSs I think Mambo takes the cake as the easiest "out of box".

Hi! I've used contribute extensively for documentation and content publishing sites. It's a little kludgy to set up, but is very wysiwig. I highly reccomend it!

Thanks everyone...I think the best solution for this person is contribute. Although I plan on using mambo for another large site next month.

You might want to hold off on the Mambo idea for a bit. Just recently all the core developers abandoned the project. There is a bit of a rift in the community. You may want to look at that before you decide to go ahead.
