I am starting a volunteer project for the local united way. Their website is woefully out of date and they need something that they can keep updated. They have a staff of 3 people, so having a trained person to update it really isnt an option.

I have looked through all the normal Mambo/Nuke type CMSs, but nothing really hits me as useful for a professional website.

Has anyone run across any really good ones that fit in my price range? :whistling:

Symfony is PHP5

Cake is simply awesome (not PHP5 though).

Hi, I make custom content management systems. I have a new upcoming system which you may be interessted in. It's called iMODB and requires you to insert only two lines of code into your site to work, a menu code and content code (each 1 line), so any site can do it.

If you want to test it out, contact me and i will arrange a personal test.

Ill clarify. I am doing this for free. The organization I am doing this for is a non-profit. Their money is better spent creating programs for school children after school or feeding a hungry family. Thats why it says free in the topic title.

I appreciate the offer, but Ill have to decline.

A friend of mine has made his own lightweight CMS called Kubix - http://www.kubix.msbeta.net

It's currently in Private Beta but I think there will be a new version out in a day or so which will be a public Beta.

Free and easy to use, I'd suggest PostNuke www.postnuke.com. Pretty easy to get a site going.... If you want free, very scalable, very extensible, but has a high learning curve for the developer.... Check out Xaraya www.xaraya.com, you can do just about anything with it, but it will take a while of reading posting on their forums to get it setup the way you like. I've been using it for a couple years now and learn something new about it nearly every day.
