This is a demonstration of a basic Lodge web site built with the CMSimple content management system (CMS).
I had no prior knowledge of CMSimple before starting and these are my observations of the process.
In less than 4 hours, I built what you see here.
Note: I'm an old guy and I went deliberately slow -- reading the documentation, trying a concept, checking out the support forum, etc.. Now, having done that, I could do it all over again in less than an hour. I really took much longer than necessary.
CMSimple has its limitations, but once you get the design/layout the way you want it, ANYONE can maintain the content. For example, anyone could change the Officers at the end of the year, or add/delete events and news items to keep them current. It is this type of content maintenance that CMSimple makes, well, simple.
I am impressed.
"myCMSimpleLodge" is a ficticious lodge for demonstration purposes only.
