When it COMES TO WEB DESIGN, sometimes, simple is better, much better. Simplicity, and ease-of-use are highly desirable qualities in blog or content management software that must be learned and used by non-technical clients. There are great blog and lightweight cms (Content Management System) platforms available in the open source market that can do almost anything. Currently, Wordpress is the "king of the hill," with the largest base of users and a solid and fast-moving core of developers and supporters.Just about anything you want in a CMS can be found in Wordpress. However, there are times when it is too much. Sometimes, a lightweight system that offers the basics in a really simple interface is all that is needed.
GETSIMPLE is a wonderful lightweight CMS platform for client websites with basic needs. If all that is needed is an occasional update of content, along with a simple blog and gallery, GetSimple is a lightweight alternative that is quick to setup, easy to learn, and easy to teach to clients. I am using GetSimple to manage the blog you are reading now. Converting my theme into a blog template took less than five minutes. Installing the software is a ten-minute process. The interface is clean, thoughtfully laid out, and simple. If you are a web designer with small business clients, you need GetSimple.
