Is there a way to turn this guy off? I just got about 15 of these in my email.

Thanks!

I would highly recommend wordpress www.wordpress.org it started off  as a
blogging platform but is excellent to use as a CMS for clients.
it's easy to use and intuitive I've used it on a few sites for clients
who want to maintain their own content.
It's php and mysql based and dead easy to setup...
Making the template is easy enough and there are good resources out
there..

here's an article on how to use it as a CMS.

I find it very disappointing that very few clients really  appreciate the
amount of hard work that goes into designing and building a site  (in my
experience).  This particular client wants to save a few bucks by
maintaining the site herself.  She doesn't seem to realize that her  time
is valuable as well and better used when devoted to her strengths.  I
think most of us know that we need to call a plumber or electrician as
they are "experts" in their fields, and rightly so.  Nuff said...

Now that I have a realization that I need to incorporate some sort  of a
CMS solution, can anyone lead me to resources that may help to  teach me
the ropes?  I am leaning towards PHP, as I am somewhat familiar  with the
language. Thanks.

Regards,
Kevin.

Be careful if you don't use a CMS system.  I donated a web site
for a
local organization and it was a beauty...since I no longer had
the time
to devote to updating I turned it over to a so called 'web
designer' in
the community (at the recommendation of the executive director).
Sadly,
he has basically ruined my site because he has no idea what he
is doing
and has no concept of web standards--or style for that matter.

It is a real shame that so many people charge for and design web
sites
that don't follow any sort of standards.
