I am creating a site for a client and I need a software where they can have a list of upcoming events on their page and they can update, add events, and remove events. Like a CMS software. Any ideas?

Thank you in advance.

Umbraco is another great CMS/Web-development framework. Not sure how well you know ASP.NET but it would probably take me about half a day to put together an upcoming events solution in Umbraco.

It boasts an amazing structure/architecture but there is a slight lack of documentation.

CMSMadesimple. Free, open source, big enough community to have good support, updated regularly. Powerful, but easy to template (uses SMARTY), and much simpler to manage than Joomla or Drupal.

  • Using wordpress as a CMS is like using a crescent spanner as a hammer. It can do the job, but it's not the best tool and you might get your fingers bruised. You have to do a fair bit of hacking in the back end to make it work well. For example, even if you disable comments via the admin interface, as soon as some bot discovers the site is running wordpress, you will get a ton of direct-injected spam comments, which, while they won't be visible, clog up the database and send admin emails to someone.

  • Wordpress isn't the best for clients either as it requires regular updates...unless the client is willing to pay for regular maintenance it'll quickly go out of date (as far as updates and patches go) danwellman over 9 years ago
  • why not Expression Engine, little expensive, but highly quality and well efficient CMS platform Muhammad Yoosuf over 9 years ago
