It?s pretty easy to get a website set-up utilising a Content Management System if you are interested in creating a blog, social network, or alike, but it?s actually quite hard finding a CMS that will create you a simple site.
I wanted to make a site that would initially be set-up by me, but then could be maintained by others with minimal experience.
I tried creating a website using WordPress, but couldn?t really get around the fact that it is originally programmed as a weblog, and not specifically for making stand-alone site, and so I searched around for a CMS that could help me out, and this is where Websitebaker comes in.
Website Baker is a PHP-based Content Management System (CMS) designed with one goal in mind: to enable it?s users to produce website with ease.
You?ll need a MySQL database to run the site, but if you?re host doesn?t offer that, you can get a free one here.
If you fancy giving Website Baker a quick go then you can try out a demo here.
Installation is minimal and once that?s done, there?s no need to have anymore ftp access. Where as other CMS require you to upload new themes, templates, and plug-ins via ftp, Website Baker enables all this to be done from the admin interface by browsing your desktop for downloaded mods and uploading the .zip file.
The admin screen is very simple (see below screenshot) and I am confident that even someone with minimal web experience would feel comfortable with Website Baker.
I?ve already made one site using Website Baker, and I?m going to make a few others too. A very good piece of software indeed, oh and it?s completely free, which is what we like over here at SpecialStuff.
