So I'm in the process of redesigning and redeveloping my site, and I've thought about using a CMS, simply because I thought it would make life a little easier. I've been checking out a few solutions via http://www.opensourcecms.com/.

My only concerns are that:

  • there's different kinds of sections, eg. news, articles, downloads (w/ screenshots, descriptions etc.), movies, and very soon an online portfolio

  • I would like to keep the current directory structure, where programs, movies etc. are in a separate folder on the server.

I can't decide either way; I'm attracted to the benefits of CMS but I also want my site to be flexible. Any suggestions?

Xoops seems like a fairly flexible cms - have a wee look at that.

I did a site in Xoops - I thought it was wonderful, until I needed to do something more complex with it, and now it drives me mad. I wish I'd had time to write it from scratch in ColdFusion like I normally do.

Thanks for the help guys, but I've decided to do all the coding myself as nothing fitted the bill. Pray for me brothers... sisters...
