CMS with content types?

P: n/a
I'm looking for an open-source CMS which has the concept of
customizable content types and categories. It ideally needs to run on
a LAMP platform.

To give a specific example, part of the site I want to build will have
a discography for a recording artist so I'd like to be able to create
a "recording" content type which would have fields such as artist,
title, label etc etc. I'd then like to be able to build lists of this
content type using CMS functionality, eg: in portlets.

I've looked at opensourcecms.com and cmsmatrix.org but neither make it
very easy to work out whether a CMS has this sort of functionality.

I did find this:

http://farcry.daemon.com.au/go/featu...q-cms-features

But it uses ColdFusion MX...

Any suggestions would be more than welcome.

You can have a look at PhpWebSite, which offers this kind of things. But
you'll have to dig in the source code for proper documentation !-)

Another, somewhat more mature, solution could be Zope, but then you're
out of the LAMP platform...

My 2 cents,

You ask a lot customized options for free :-)
Good luck! And let us all know if you find it. If not:
