Looking for a Content Management System (CMS) for a particular website project, please read if you can help!?

Hello all,

I'm aiming to build a website using a CMS, of PHP/MySQL format. I'm familiar with Drupal but I think that could be too complex for it; it seems to me that it will only need a simple CMS.

The aim of the website is to be a simple one explaining what the company does. But a login system is required for clients who wish to obtain particular information from us. So for example, the client might log in, click a request information button, fill in some text fields and tick a selection of check boxes that are relevant. This then needs to be saved in a database and email our company a copy of it.

We need a login system for ourselves to obtain this information via the website, and respond to it by attaching a PDF document or something similar.

The hierachy may end up like a forum, with Admin (being myself), moderator (the employees) and users (the clients).

I must also stress that it needs to look simple and jargon-free for both our clients and employees.

Thanks very much!!

    I don't have a ready built answer that will do this your way, but looking at some of the freeware selections that are in stable release phase at the URL below may get you what you want. All software at this URL is Open Source Licensed in some recognizable way. This doesn't mean that the software is free for commercial use though, so please check with the copyright holders and read the license. A search for "CMS" should get you a long list, about 1795 related projects I believe. Good hunting.

    as long as you have the nicely suited meta tags on your head and your markup is right (this contains nicely suited use of h1, nav and article tags, and so on.), the cms would not extremely impact your search engine optimization. remember that it may not harm to have an internet site map for crawlers.
