Looking for a CMS that is easy to learn and use

Hi friends !

I have my common.tpl.php template that is based on my style.css. I have the following common sections and they all are getting codes from include files.

1. Header (header.inc)
2. Left pane (menu.inc, DROP DOWN NAVIGATION BAR, Downloaded from www.dynamicdrive.com, this navigation bar uses mootools, Javascripts and CSS)
3. Middle pane (IT IS THE MAIN AREA OF TEXT CHANGING FROM WEBPAGE TO WEBPAGE)
4. Right pane (right.inc)
5. Footer (footer.inc)

The code for my common.tpl.php is attached in code section.

Now, I used this template to create webpages and they are fine. BUT...

Our institute needs a CMS to update the contents in easy way. I had heard about Joomla and SPIP. But I found that SPIP provides documentations and support mostly in French Language and For Joomla, the template system is very confusing for me. I am not able to embed my drop down navigation bar in Joomla template at my desired location.

Can you please tell me which CMS is easy to learn and use  ?

Regards,

Hemant
