Really just for my own use! Google RSS reader shortcuts – just because I use it and can never remember them! One interesting way of organising the feeds is to add ‘tags’ to the entries. This way you can quickly find them again just using your tags – a bit like delicious and other social media systems online.

There’s an interesting article on the ONLamp.Com web site describing how John McCreesh used the wordpress blogging software to create and maintain a CMS based site. The site was originally using phpWebSite; which is an opensource community-driven CMS system based around php.
It seems to me that this should be very simple as there are loads of plugins for wordpress and the basic CMS system straight out of the box is more than adequate with its customised page templates and multiple ‘page’ capabilities. Really all it needs is some styling and layout changes to make the system into a very useable day to day web based CMS system – all for free!
Many people are now concentrating on the ‘content’ of a web site rather than the look and feel. The layout is of course important, especially if you are looking for brand image, but underneath all the show, there has to be good content. A content management system (CMS) is the ideal way to breach the gap between the two. By using the power of wordpress and the plethora of add-ons and support in the community plus an adequate content management system to bring it all together you have the best of both worlds.
A friend of mine (Les Edgecumbe) runs a wordpress site for the community highlighting the outrageous monstrosity that is the CLS Laundry based in Newton Abbot. Originally Les used a web based commercial CMS system, some things were not easy and he relied on my help. I converted him to wordpress and now he maintains the site without my assistance and gets a good number of hits. He can concentrate on the content and not worry about the underlying technology that runs his site; it’s maintained by 1000′s of developers out there all the time!
I suggest you use wordpress and once your up and running, pop over to the wordpress ThemeViewer to choose a suitable style for your web, create a few pages and articles and your running. If your interested in CMS systems themselves, go to opensourcecms. This web site does a really good job of comparing CMS systems, and lets you ‘try’ different cms based systems online to help you decide which one is best. It has the usual popular systems such as joomla, drupal, typo3, php-nuke and mambo plus some other systems that you may not of heard about.Read: Convert WordPress to a full CMS system
