recommendations for a web CMS (content management system)?

We need to set up a content management system that allows nontechnical
users to manage the content of their web site. Rather than starting
from scratch, I'd prefer to start with an existing CMS that we can
extend as needed. So, I'd prefer something with nice clean, easy-to-
follow code over something that includes everything but the kitchen
sink.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
- Joe

You may find something - at least a starting point - in the couple CMS
built with Django...

And by all means avoid Plone - great CMS but certainly falls in your
second category !-)

I can recommend ZMS (zms-publishing.com) . While being ZOPE-based, it's
custom content object system (fully web-interface-driven design for these,
plus DTML) hasn't left me with the desire to code anything apart from a few
Extension-methods where ZOPE's restricted environment forced me to.

And it is very feature-complete.

Hi, I am relatively new to PHP, but I don't care about that. I want to build a database driven Web site that is really a content management system that allows visitors to register and log in and write stories for the web site, and also allows visitors to vote on the articles. I'm thinking that maybe I should use a content management system in existence already because it might save time, then if i need to, i could just change the system...

Hi All, For the past few months I have been working on an open source Apache/PHP/MySQL content management system - and have recently made it available for download. It's still very much a work in progress (current release version is 0.4.6), but you should get a very good idea of what it's about by visiting the site (which uses it, funnily enough), or downloading a copy of it and trying it out.

I know what it is, and yet the knowledge of what a CMS is, is so vague that I find myself asking this question every now and then. I've googled and read the resources too. However, the knowledge is still not clear. It is so vague. Me: Just what is a content management system? Myself: A place where content can be stored.

These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
