Mini CMS + Foundation 5? Clients want to edit site.

I love using Foundation to build sites but I also have quite a few clients that want to be able to make tweaks on their own.

I've found FoundationPress which is pretty cool! http://foundation.zurb.com/forum/posts/1214-foundation-5--wordpress This is great if my clients want a blog but I think Wordpress is a little excessive for just allowing users to tweak minor site content. I don't want to have to worry about updating Wordpress and don't like using databases for simple static sites.

Has anyone tried combining some of the "mini CMS's" with Foundation? Something like Unify, Cushy CMS, Perch.

Thanks for any help guys & gals.

Hi guys,

Anchor cms seems pretty simple and fast, and i found an template ready for Foundation:

You can try MODX. I like it because I am not an expert coder and it is a designer/creative friendly CMS. It can be very basic, or super complex depending on what you want to accomplish. Creating and editabe region for a client? Simple. Creating a spot where the client can insert a photo: Simple.

A basic knowledge of HTML and CSS is really all that is required. All other knowledge just makes your tasks much easier...and faster.

No PHP knowledge is require with MODx unless you want to get into developing special functions or create add-ons to use with it.

In terms of more blog like content, MODX has an addon geared more specifically for just that. But it's not needed for creating editable regions.
