Hello there fellow webmasters,

I am bidding a new project, and looking to figure out the most efficient way to accomplish my goals. Here is what I need to do:

1 Allow customers to login to secure area
2 Allow client to easily upload/edit files via cms in that secure area
3 Mod skin so it looks nice on the frontend

Seems pretty simple, but looking for the best solution to pitch to the client. Hope some good ideas come in!

I think the best bet for you would be to go to opensourcecms.com and take some systems for a test drive.

On that site they have a wide range of cms applicatiosn installed and you are able to login as the admin and see what they are able to do.

Is this going to a commerce driven site? Joomla is multi-faceted in its abilities, and I would recommend it. Tell us more about the project as the details you provided are slightly vague.

If you're hosting on a Windows platform, DotNetNuke will do everything you require. And it's free/opensource.
