    CMS Solution?

    Hey guys. This is my first post, and I am currently in the process of designing my first website for a client.

    If you have a look here, you can see my layout etc. I want my client to be able to add new news items and modify current ones via a simple user interface. Preferably, it will have fields for title and date as well. A comment system would be great too.

    There will also be a download page, a pictures page/gallery, and a few others (as you can see from the links across the top). I need all of these to be able to be edited with ease, and without having to access the actual html/php files themselves.

    Because I have already created the layout etc, I would prefer a system whereby I just have to insert snippets of code where the news entries etc will go. It must also be noted that I have no prior experience with CMS's (although I've had a few blogs with Wordpress etc in the past)

    So, does anyone know of the most appropriate CMS to use?

    Please forgive me if not all of this makes sense.. It's midnight, and I'm mondo tired. Thanks in advance!

    Look into Cute News its free to download and the interface is pretty simple. Adding news and editing/removing news is a sinch. I uses flat files e.g. text files so no database is required.

    Will Cute News allow my client to upload images or mp3 files to have on the website?

    mp3's no (but with some work could be possible), images I remember a setting in cute news that allows the client to upload images.
