    Pulse CMS

    I came across Pulse CMS (see the demo). The demo site seems ideal for cranking out a site for a semi-pro photographer client.

    Since I am not a gifted web designer, I think that I can do some minor tweaks to the demo site template to make my client happy to open their wallet.

    For SEO, I noticed that index.php showed up whilst navigating the demo, so I would like to mask that out. But, otherwise, the site demo looks slick.

    Anyone with experience about this CMS?

    I never heard of it. It does look like an interesting solution for clients who just want a simple site.

    It is a paid solutions, although not very expensive.

    There is an administration area. There is no database, but it is not a static site. Perhaps it is built and updated with text files.

    Support - Pulse CMS

    I'm not sure that it would save any time versus doing a simple static site.

    It would because this isn't a simple static site. You don't need SQL to store data, only to perform complex queries on the data such as for a product catalog search.

    The back-end admin area allows the client to edit web page content, and add pages by themselves so it's better for the client than a static site that needs everything updated by the web designer.

    Also, it could be a nightmare asking the client for their preferences for image galleries, plugins, and image sliders etc. with something like a WordPress solution. I imagine that once a client realizes you used WP, they would be asking for all kinds of plugins to be added driving you crazy as they research what plugins are available. Maybe this is why many web shops develop their own CMS solutions?

    OMG - I am really tired about hearing about WordPress plugins. WP is primarily a blog solution and should have stayed that way IMO with no need for any plugins. And this thread is about Pulse CMS

    WordPress has become a monster of complexity. It's nice to explore simple solutions that still use the latest technology such as jQuery. Also, Apache server maybe should move over for NginX? And while we are at it, dump databases for non-e-commerce sites.
