Hey, this sounds great, th23, and it might be just what I'm looking for! I think a lot of us want more info, though.
Maybe you can answer some quick questions, and this may spur some of us to go ahead and try it and report back. I was going to use ExpressionEngine for my main site. With ExpressionEngine, I can set up different "blogs" (that I use as site pages, not really "blogs"). For example, I can make a "Main pages" blog, and have the links automatically show in the top part of the left hand column. I can also make a "User Pages" blog, and have those appear in another section, say... right below the other set of links. Finally, I can make a "random pages" blog whose links DON'T automatically appear, and I can manually set them in any order I want if I want to, and put them under the other two groups.
Also, I can authorize certain users to be able to post in the "User Pages" blog, but not the "Main Pages" blog. Can your CMS do any of that?
I hope that example makes sense, and I'd prefer to give you an actual example rather than use terminology that I may or may not be correct on!
