  Description     : User Friendly but powerful Content Managment System build in php

 SPIP is an open-source, free publication system on the Internet, mainly
 targetted at individuals, informal groups and non-profit organizations.
 SPIP allows contributive writing and managing of websites having a
 magazine-like structure (i.e. articles and short stories contained in nested
 sections), while not needing any HTML skills (except for defining the layout
 There are two kind of registered users : writers (who can submit
 articles and short stories, and comment pending submissions) and 
 administrators (who validate submissions, manage the site structure 
 and configuration...). Every task, including installation,
 is done through a Web-based, user-friendly interface ; only the writing
 of templates needs some technical learning. Writers can use convenient
 typographic and presentation shortcuts in their texts so as to make
 them ready to publish without any particular computer skills. The public 
 part of the site as well as the back-office include a forum system to add
 comments to articles and short stories. A two-level cache system in the 
 public site keeps the amount of resources used on the server very low. 
 A lightweight fulltext indexation and search engine is also integrated, 
 which incurs no noticeable slowdown when enabled.
 Now for the annoying point : SPIP is in French. This doesn't prevent you 
 from building sites in other languages, as your public site is entirely 
 defined in the templates, but you still have to understand the documentation
 and the back-office interface....
