    I've been given the task of creating a new website for my company. It's a basic static website that shouldn't be much of a problem. However after its creation minor updates of things like text will be handled by two people in our advertising department. I've started looking for a good Content Manager to let them do this but initial searches have found over fifty Content Mangers that I'm slowly working my way through checking. I like OpenCms so far but I'm still looking through them. I was wondering if anybody could recommend a good Content Manager? It doesn't matter if it's free or has to be bought I just need to make sure it's easy to use for someone with who's a non-programmer.

    Tweaking the site via your browser and having the changes take place immediately.

    Drupal.

    Probably one of the most flexible CMS's i've used. There are LOTS of plugins, and if there is one you are missing, the API makes it easy to write. There is also a ton of support for it as well in their community.

    take a look at yulup : http://yulup.org

    it uses a firefox browser extension as its editor, nice concept and i don't think it gets any simpler.

    edit: idk what browsers it supports actually, i have only used it with ff

    I'm a fan of WordPress. It's intended for blogs, but I've found it to be a fairly flexible and easy to work with general purpose CMS. It doesn't have all the community features of Joomla et al, but it does work nicely for a regular website.
