I'm from the Cold Fusion world and am bidding on a project to database portions of an existing website, in multiple languages.
My options are to have them add CF Server to their plan and custom write some back-end admin code (I can copy from the dozens of sites I have already authored) to drive three pages on their site, which will have to be renamed to .CFM files, or find something in PHP that is easy to set up for someone unfamiliar to PHP. Since I'm looking to expand into PHP anyway, it's an opportunity for the client to pay for my educational forray.
So, I'm looking for a CMS that will allow me to drive only a few of pages of many in an existing website. There are three pages in question:
- A news page, with content shared across three pages: Three short headlines on the homepage, ten snippets on the news page, and the show news page with the full stories (currently hard coded as separate pages).
- A contact database page, listing people in multiple countries and states/provinces, etc., searchable and indexable.
- A products section, with a left-nav listing of seven categories and each category's dozen or so products. Clicking on a product name brings you to the hard-coded product page with images etc.
So, I need the ability to integrate a CMS into the site such that it will drive these three pages, allow me to expand onto other pages when the client is ready, and support five European languages in the back-end.
