Hey a question for all you computer techies out there. I'm thinking about helping out a friend's website by trying to keep it automated using a Content Management System. I've never really used this thing before and I'm just even more confused from reading about it online.

I was wondering what kind of computer knowledge you need to use it. For example, do you have to know basic stuff like html or more complicated things such as java and programing. Thanks!

Also, would anyone recommend the Mambo CMS because that's the only free one I could find?

Most CMS are quite easy to use after you spend some time with them. For a list of FREE CMS you might want to visit: http://www.opensourcecms.com

ok thanks. So I won't really need to know really complicated stuff right? I know html but anything else is beyond me.

Most CMS just work out of the box.
