I’ve been using Rapidweaver for a few years now for basic web pages for myself and clients. I’m working on setting up a recommendation blog for my clients who ask me what technology to buy. I’m a bit stuck though.
I’ve watched Rapidweaver videos and have a basic understanding but still feel like I’m flying by the seat of my pants so to speak. I’m looking for a way to create an easy to setup blog. I’m thinking main page (which contains the blog), about me page, links page, contact me page, and possibly a site map. I have a domain and hosting already. I also own Armadillo and have it linked to a database in my hosting package.
I went the CMS route initially because I like the idea of creating an interface, choosing a theme, and being done. Then all my content I add and apply via web interface. I don’t think I need a section for other people to comment on posts, at least not immediately. I need to make sure it’s secure and if I need to make major changes in the future, I don’t loose all my posts.
So saying that, I’m looking for any comments and suggestions for managing a blog. Easy to setup, easy to maintain. Do you prefer using a CMS like Armadillo and Total CMS? I need it to be viewable on desktops, tablets and phones. I think most of that is theme based though. I own a bunch of the Nimblehost themes but always looking for more.
On another note, I’d love to grab the PDF manuals for all these applications and have them printed/book bound. Has anyone else done that yet? Have any suggestions besides just sending it to a Kinkos? I’d much rather have a manual I can hold vs searching an electronic one.
