Wanted: recommendations for a proven, but simple open source CMS that’s web-standards friendly.
The ideal candidate will work with LAMP (Linux/Apache/MySQL [or PostgreSQL in this case] /PHP). Function-wise, it should just be bare-bones, and usable through a browser. It will allow editing of multiple chunks of content that can be chained into a single page, although the chunks themselves will probably be pretty simple (a few headers and paragraphs, the odd list, nothing much more). At the same time, I’d like it to auto-generate things like site-wide nav and breadcrumbs and the like. No problem scripting those, as long as they’re in some way possible. Free as in beer is a luxury, but not necessary.
Yeah, this is sounding like Movable Type. And in a way, that’s more or less what I’m looking for. I’d like something that’s page-oriented instead of post-oriented however, and although Matt’s how-to would get me what I need, MT just feels like the wrong tool for the job. Zope is total overkill. I’m sure there are a plethora of others out there, but I’m interested in hearing about actual experience working with one.
And of course if it generates <FONT> tags out of the box, don’t even bother mentioning it…
