I have been asked by a couple of people how they can do a site which will allow them to do their own content management, I have only ever done one site like that for which I needed to create 'update' pages. These would update the datbase via php and mysql. This is fine except that it takes a long time and costs the site owner quite a bit. Mostly I deal with entry level customers and very basic sites, but these can be labour intensive as I have to update TONS of photos for them.
I have been told of Joomla nad had a quick look. It seems to me that you have to use their hosting, you will use basic templates and it doesnt sound like what I want.
I did find some software package a while ago that makes it easier but was $700 (if I remember correctly).
Can anybody please give me some advice as to what would be the most cost effective way of supplying Content Management to basic sites, and/or any software package recommendations.
Thanks so much,
