I want one... :D

I've been toying around with CMS programs today, and basically they're all unnecessarily overcomplicated. Are there any simple CMS tools out there rather than the hideous ones I've been messing around with? I just want a php news feed and archive alongside five or six static pages, and the ability to stick my own logo at the top of the page.

I might be able to help. First, tell me what a "CMS program" is, then what a "CMS tools" is and then tell me what "php news feed and archive" means.

Then tell me roughly what area you are talking about. Is it something to do with pet food?

the term you're looking for is RSS. RSS news feed. I guess search the web. I've never reallly done anything with them so I can't help!

RSS is easy as eating pie. The problem is that so many "mainstream" news sources CHANGE their RSS feed locations on a weekly basis. Grrrr!

The other main syndication 'standard' currently is Atom.

It wasn't an RSS feed, it was a PHP news editor I wanted.

Anyway, you'll be pleased to know that I'm through with these threads, and the finished result is here (http://www.walkdenconservatives.co.uk/). It's looking rather good I think. :)

...because I'm not a computer nerd? :p

I did want a feed, I just wanted it to feed my own news. :D
