In case you need a CMS that you can simply upload and start editing the site, CMSimple is for you.

To use the CMS, the user must first authenticate on the website before all things.

After this task has been taken care of, CMSimple works by allowing the user to edit a page's content via a WYSIWYG editor.

CMSimple also allows the admin to edit how the content is shown on the page, by also giving him access to edit the page's layout template as well.

With this simple approach, CMSimple's creator has managed to provide quite a versatile system for controlling the website, without needing complex database schemas and/or a complicated admin panel.
