I've tried something new (to me). I've put up lots of sites usiing rather conventional means and/or worked with programmers who have provided me with custom cms in the past.
I decided to give a try to implementing a cms on a new domain. I got phpwebsite, a free theme which i managed to install successfully. I have some ideas of what I want to do but there is very little help I've found in the way of a manual, an active forum etc.
For example... there is a poll module that I successfully set up. But it's on the home page. And it's in the left column. I'd like to use this poll function. I can't figure out if it has to be on the home page (there is nothing to change it in the 'control panel') or not. I don't know HOW to move it.
I have other questions too. I'm not certain just how flexible this phpwebsite is and I'm considering scrapping the whole thing and building a site the old fashioned way with html or xhtml. Anyone have some insight into this?
