A month ago, I had to quickly develop a website based around a thrice-weekly newsletter, that also offered additional content on the website.
Soon, the process of manually updating the code for the index page, the content, and the archives became very time consuming. So I looked for a CMS which would help with this process. Unfortunately, most that I found were either too complex or too difficult to incorporate into a preexisting site.
I had used WordPress for a personal blog before, but had never considered using it as a CMS until I read through a few other posts on this forum of people doing exactly that.
All in all, it took just about two days to fully convert the site from static HTML content to being fully driven by WordPress. Previous updates which could have taken 15 minutes (with many mistakes possible) now take about thirty seconds.
I found WordPress to be extremely easy to incorporate into a site which was not even designed to work with a CMS originally. I also found that I had didn't have to make nearly any changes to make it function more like a CMS then a blog tool (this mostly consisted of limiting the posts on the front page to fit in the news area).
Anyway, I just wanted to report my success with this, and of course am open to any suggestions on the site. Thanks!
