CMSes: Why are they still so unflexible?

It is 2008. What do you do when you need to create a new web site?

There are many Content Management Systems but they are still very difficult to install, use and customize. Only a tiny number of sites would like to have a 3-column phpNuke look, but still pretty much all CMSes assume that is what you want.

If you are a programmer, maybe you can spend hours, mess with lots of php files and come up with a hack theme that would make it barely look like the kind of design you would like, but you are an exception. Most of the people who build sites are not programmers.

We have been hard at work for the last year to create a new kind of membership software. Our main goal was to keep things easy to use and easy to customize. So we developed a new kind of templating system that is both simple and flexible.

Basically, you can create any kind of design and our Memberkit templating system will just accept and work with it.

You can create a new page and upload it into your dev folder and it will just become part of your site with the design you created.

Stay tuned for more news about Memberkit. We will be releasing it on October 29th.
