Which Content Management System (CMS)/Wiki should I use?

Hi I want to create a single page web site like http://kiskolabs.com/ or http://www.carat.se to display my portfolio. I want to add new products after launching the site without having to edit the entire site.

I've looked at opencart (too much for single page site), Magneto (more for ecommerce), Wordpress (couldn't find open source / free templates which i can start from).

Can you suggest a CMS which will support the creation of a single page site and allow insertion of new products without having to edit the entire page? I would prefer a CMS which also has open source / free templates which I can tweak for my use.

I can do php and mysql, xml.

If it is an easier option I can do PSD to site (but don't know much about this at all).

Answers

There are various options available.

There are numerous well known options including Joomla, Drupal, PyroCMS etc but all of which are likely overkill for a single page.

I actually really like Perch for single page sites as it's lightweight and easy to use.

Have you looked at Craig Russell's Single CMS designed exactly for this purpose?

Another option is Cushy CMS although it's hosted.

This question here on SO may also provide some suggestions.

using an existing CMS is overkill. a ton of features, library loading and SQL fetching just to show a single paged website. if i were to choose, i'd have a static single paged website!

however, if you're going on the CMS route, i personally use Joomla due to ease of use (for me at least). the extension directory is their bullet of victory housing a ton of extensions. But for custom built extensions - rare and seldom updated documentation kills you.

WordPress is the way to go for portfolio+blog websites also. they are used by almost all people i see on the internet. pretty flashy that i am also tempted to learn wordpress.

i also heard that the CodeIgniter framework is very fast. There are CMS built from CI like PyroCMS, Halogy, and FUEL. give them a shot.

but still, single page?

The best solution to your problem might be to start with a high quality theme such as those found on Theme Forrest, then either adopt the CMS the theme was designed for, or gut it out and write your own simple CMS just for the product area of the page. As Damien Pirsy says in his comment, most CMS's will probably be overkill for this job, and building your own will probably only take a couple of hours.

I like CMS Made Simple http://www.cmsmadesimple.org/, it´s very lightweight.

You have some Picture Album modules, some open source themes and some e-commerce modules that can be installed as you need, for example, only a Cart module.

If the site is a static site then simply use HTML and CSS.

If your site is dynamic one, i.e needs to make connection with database. Then use Wordpress

As if database connection then the site is more vulnerable to hacking. Moreover wordpress is easy to handle and more secure
