Do any of you use this as a CMS (5 posts)

    Hi All,

    I am a website designer and a friend of mine wants a site they can update themselves. Now I dont want to set them up with a fully featured CMS that I would normally use as they really dont need it.

    I just need to create them a simple site and allow them to edit the pictures and text.

    Would WordPress be suitable for this? If not, any suggestions?

    Many Thanks

    Gary

    1. Yes, it is possible. Many people use WP as a light CMS.
    2. Regardless of the "lightness" - they will still have to learn how to work with it: 90% of the errors and screwed up WP sites come from users not learning their tool :)

    No problem using it as a cms. Use a "Page" as the homepage, with the plugin to do that, customize the theme, and even use a special template for the homepage to differentiate it from the rest of the site.

    Yep, it's possible.
    Here's my own in-progress experiment if you want some inspiration: http://game-research.com/2/

    Good luck.
