While there are a lot of powerful and feature-rich content management systems available to choose from, designers often have the need to work on small sites for clients that may only have use for a fraction of the features offered by the CMS. In theses cases the ideal solution is to use a simple CMS that may offer limited features, but will be easier for clients to use.

If you’re finding that some of your clients are confused by extra options, consider finding a CMS that has been created specifically for smaller projects with simplicity in mind. In this post we’ll look at 13 options that are available. All of these CMSs should make it easy for you to set up the site, and easy for the clients to manage content.
