Website CMS'

So today I ended up spending pretty much the entire day taking our department website and stuffing it into a web CMS (Content Management System), specifically phpWebSite.

The existing site is a series of individual webpages I created using DreamWeaver MX (6.1) and a custom template. I think it looks pretty good. DW templates make maintainng the look and feel of a website much easier. Using a CMS makes it even easier.

The whole process went pretty smoothly. Looks reasonably good too. Now I just have to figure out how to create custom themes for phpWebSite. I already have our intradepartment website running on phpWebSite, and I figured using it for the public site would make it easier on me to update and maintain.

The downside of it is that my dynamically generated pages won't work inside the CMS. I'll have to find a workaround for that.

Haven't released it yet since I'm still playing, testing and tweaking. I hope to have it all ready soon.
