All about CouchCMS

Screenshot Home Page
CouchCMS is a self-hosted simple CMS that has been created specifically with web designers in mind.
It allows designers to take any HTML/CSS templates and convert it into a fully content managed site, quite literally in minutes.
Unlike most CMSs out there, Couch works by being retrofitted within an existing design or static site and not vice-versa. This gives unparalleled creative freedom to designers who will no longer need to design their layouts around the limitations of whichever CMS they use.
No knowledge of PHP is required for using it, as everything in Couch is achieved using the familiar XHTML like tags.
There is no learning curve, no ‘a-ha moment’, no ‘light-bulb moment’. Everything that needs to be known for using Couch can be learnt in a very short time.

Although Couch claims to be a CMS built for designers, the truth is, it perhaps was built even more for their clients – the end users. It is eventually the end-users who have to deal with the CMS more than anybody else and if they find the interface over featured and complicated, everything else comes to a naught.
