Content Management Solution for Furniture Reseller?

P: n/a
No e-commerce is required. The prospective client is asking for "content
management" e.g.managing photos and product descriptions and so on. During a
brief telephone interview I learned the client has a page design layed out
they want to retain but their developer left town or some such thing.

Other than DNN I'm seeking your opinions regarding the selection of which
pre-built content management solution or a content management framework I
will want to evaluate.

Take a look at Dozing Dogs - its used all over the place and a great price.

Other things - AXCMS, as its free has to be a consideration.

Of course you could consider Windows Sharepoint Services!

Those will do, thanks John, but SharePoint for a public site? I wish. They
don't have their own server and I've tried hosted WSS which is clumsy and
inadequate and I presume its too early to consider a hosted instance of
MOSS.

You might try joining Content Management Professionals (http://
www.cmpros.org) and asking our membership about this issue. While
we've identified over 2,000 self-labeled content management systems,
there are actually systems designed to do just what you describe.
There are others that can be made to do wht you describe, but not so
easily. CM Pros has many members with experience in this area.

That's interesting thanks. I just found this "Content Management Comparison
Tool [1]" which I've been perusing this weekend. You know when all is said
and done this project may just go simplistic and buy into Adobe Contribute
[2].
