Newbie: WordPress OK for general site management? (3 posts)

    Hi folks. I'm somewhat of an old-timer in the computer world, so learned HTML long ago. I recently decided to look in again to see what all has changed. Imagine my delight when I found out about xhtml and css! Wow, all the cruft removed!
    So I started rebuilding my home page to get a feel for css/xhtml and feel reasonably comfortable with it. So I figured the next step was to learn how to "manage" my site, using stunts like server side includes and java or php. But it occurred to me to check into CMS systems and stumbled across your site and support of standards.
    The question then is: can I use WordPress for general site management, or is it mainly for blogs?
    I do need to update my site every week or so and indeed its a bit out of date. But I doubt I'll do blogging per-se on the site. Mainly need a good way to automate css/xhtml integration.
    Any advice much appreciated!

    I use WP to blog with, and whisper to manage the rest of my site.
    More CMS features will - I think - be available in WP, but if you are after a CMS that is very easy to get to grips with, go look at whisper

    This plugin allows you to turn WP into a CMS. You can make templates for each page and it will look like a regular page.
