hey not bad.I really need a script that would be minimalist in nature and integrated with blogs elements.

i set up a simple website where anyone can have a pluck installation for free.(http://s130363071.onlinehome.us/free/)

Good solution when you need to craft a small web site quickly. 5-10 pages max. Single system admin login.
- Does not need a database.
- Small code size.
- Easy to edit pages with WYSIWYG editor.
- Nice photo album module with lightbox java effects.
- Handy picture upload for pages.
- Very simple template system. Easy to make custom designs.
- You will have only one password to access the admin panel.
- URLs are not SEO friendly.
- Blog module is too simple for use.
- One level menu only.

Very best CMS (between simples) for a simple business website.

Very easy to set up: Download, extract, upload (FTP), go to your new online homepage, change a few permissions (NOT recursively!) as advised, and that's it.

Online editing of content and pages etc, which is easier than using a word processor.

I have a very basic hosting package, and the simple php doesn't cause any problems.

Recommended for anyone wanting to set up a simple business website etc, and wants to be able to edit content themselves.

Pluck is really good. I have used Typo3 in my University exams, then built a site for a non technical Orphanage client in pluck. I can say that the client is very satisfied with the work, and I enjoyed using this simple, easy to learn and easy to teach CMS.

Doesn't allow easy setup of different templates for different pages. Example: Can't use different layout for homepage, than interior pages. I see on the forums it can be done, but requires PHP hacking.

That is a simple and VERY necessary feature for most websites.

Tried this for a client who had a server but without MySQL. Only needed a simple site of 4 pages. Easy to use. Since there isn't many templates yet. Had to do a bit of a rework of the CSS and graphics to get the end result. Took 5 hours to create a website. I'd recommend this for small sites of not more then six top menu links. Common problem I have is training clients to use Joomla. This will take 15 mins to teach a user the CMS

How come file permissions need to be 777. thats a security flaw.

Sorry I meant internal or external inks in the post below.... BarryMac

Pluck no longer has a problem with internal or internal links, all works fine now. I think this is a wonderful well rounded CMS system and one of the very best and easiest for non-tech end users to work with. BarryMac

Pluck is nice but fatally flawed by inability to save html links on pages. Once this is solved Pluck may be the easiest CMS to get up and running.

only thing missing File manager and News module. Far easier than any flat cms ever release.
