Default A sitebuilder to use with ISPConfig?

I'm looking for advice on a good sitebuilder.

I'm setting up a server to allow a lot of non-profit organisation to set up their own website. I'll be providing this as a free service and was thinking of using ISPConfig to set up the domains, and give each user their own control panel to set up emails etc.

As many of these organisations will be new to websites and hosting I'm looking for a sitebuilder to put on the server for them too. I'd want this to be very user friendly. Although it's a free service I want the sites to be decent, and I don't want to have loads of calls for help to set the sites up etc.

The sites (initially at least) won't need to be sophisticated - home page, about us, links, news, photogallery are probably the main requirments. Possibly a guestbook. No e-commerce functionality required.

In an ideal world I'd like the sitebuilder to be accessable from the user control panel. That's not essential but I'm not sure how else to put the facility on the server for all 'clients' to use unless it's installed in each domain somewhere? They'd obviously have to be able to launch it easily, save and upload the site, and be able to access it for editing when required.

Any advice on suitable sitebuilders would be appreciated ... siteZen impresses me so far. If the sitebuilder doesn't integrate with the users ISPConfig panel I need advice on how to implement the solution on the server too as this is new territory for me.

You are not alone in your request. We are currently working on creating plugins that will provide what you requested. I believe the phpnuke plugin is almost complete:

As far as CMS's go this topic might help:

I have currently switched a decent amount of the pages I make to joomla, www.joomla.com. I found that for the average user is it simple and easy.
Drupal might also be something to look at. www.drupal.org

Yes, the cms installer is functional right now but I have things to do yet.
This are the cms supported till now:
Copy paste from code:
$cms_array = array("cmsms", "etomite", "joomla", "mambo", "phpnuke", "postnuke", "websitebaker", "boastmachine", "wordpress", "phpbb", "usebb");
But there will be more.

Great to see that cmsms is the first in the array

My first posting and its a request
I really installed almost all of the free cms and must say php-fusion is my favorite cms.

Thumbs up Why not try GuppY CMS ?

Why not try GuppY CMS, it's an CMS that dont requier any MySQL databases as it works, for now - MySQL option will be in the future as we work on it, with flat-files.

Look at FreeGuppy.org, french and english, due to that fact that GuppY can handle two language on each GuppY website, by your choise.

For danish, swedish or norwegian look at FreeGuppY.dk

We got tons of skin, plugins etc etc.

Best regards,
