I am looking for a CMS/blog script, which allows me to create posts and pages.
- Minimal features
- No in-built plugins/widgets
- URL rewriting
- Lightweight in file size (admin/functional files)
- Very simple templates… Eg:
<? navigation goes here? >
<? posts go here ?>
I have tried and am not interested in the following for this project:

Ooh! I didn’t think of Chyrp, because last I heard it had ceased development. It looks like a winner for me though!
I mentioned Cutenews in case novices were going to reply… But I don’t think GWG is up to that stage, is it?May 23, 2011 at 8:22 pm #14569
If you make it thru Chyrp, please share how you did !
I’m using it right now but I just can’t change the look of it.
It saddens me
I would have suggest Gelato, quite simple but I can’t remember if it makes Page. Moreover, it ain’t updated anymore ( kind of dead but not officialy )May 24, 2011 at 12:34 am #14570
Cutenews is just as horrible as Fanupdate. *cough*May 24, 2011 at 12:27 pm #14571
@bluetie, you can check out Cherry.nu. Lisa (the webmistress) makes use of Chyrp as her website’s CMS.May 24, 2011 at 2:02 pm #14572
If Habari is no good to you, Chyrp will be no better (certainly older versions that I developed with)May 24, 2011 at 2:08 pm #14573
chyrp can be quite frustrating – I’m using it for my portfolio (that isn’t actually published yet.)
It’s nice in some ways and I like the way it “feels” but there are some things that are frustrating and I had to do some weird tweaking in the chyrp code itself to get some things to work for me.
Just a heads up! (also, I plan on writing some chyrp tutorials once my site is up because there is pretty much zero documentation out there right now.)May 24, 2011 at 4:06 pm #14574

Does anyone know if Chyrp’s comment system has any spam protection?May 29, 2011 at 8:54 am #14576
I think it does (or at least did) – I have the older version running on a test system and it has a space for you to add in an Akismet key. Not used that bit myself so not sure how well it works, but it seems like it would do the job.May 31, 2011 at 12:47 am #14577
I found something pretty cool. It’s Wolf CMS, this also looks very simple and lightweight. I’m going to give this a try as well as Chyrp.June 5, 2011 at 2:08 am #14578June 5, 2011 at 2:47 am #14579
Yep. Wolf CMS is the descendant of Frog CMS… And I really really like how its templates and components are set out. It suits me well.June 5, 2011 at 8:52 am #14580
Oh. I’d also like to add CMS Made Simple, love it. <3
