I need a php content management system that I can brand myself. My requirements are as follows:
Produces SEO friendly code
Can be inserted into existing html pages
Well commented so I can understand how it works (I have an intermediate knowledge of php)
Works with CSS
can be used without a database
Can also be used to edit database content (such as a listing site)
Very user friendly interface for clients who have no html knowledge (wysiwyg)
This is not for building sites, only for clients who want to be able to edit their content
I like "Web Design from scratch" a lot, and I like LT sun engine and swisscms but none of them seem to have the capabilities I need. It needs to be simple enough, that I can install it on a site where a client only wants to edit text, and can't edit menus and other features, and complicated enough that I can use it also for a client who gets content from a database. Needs to be completely "white label" so I can brand it as my own. If someone is able to edit an existing "white label" CMS to fit my needs, I am fine with that, or completely custom. I am open to your ideas.
With your bid, please give me a thorough idea of how your CMS would work.
