I am looking for a CMS that I can install on a php site to alllow a client to edit a section of a page.

The CMS should not have page management capabilities, it should be implemented so that I can define a block of code on the page where the CMS-entered information appear on the page .  Something like how a php include works, but the include is pulling from the CMS.  Much like how external files are often pulled into a swf.  The implementation can be database or file based.

Hi VaughnP,

I'm not familiar with anything that is this basic in functionality.  You would do better building it around the CKEditor and a simple database to hold the content and output it by query.

greetings VaughnP, You state - "The CMS should not have page management capabilities", and this, to me, seems to contradict what a "Content Management System" is suppose to do. So there might not even be any CMS that does not do page management? As jason1178 has suggested, there are very many javascript "Rich" text editors which can be used with PHP to give the web site user the ability to type in, and HTML format their content, that content is then "form posted" to a php page which can save the HTML formatted text (to file, database) and add code in php (even an include) to display their "New" content anywhere the php coder wants it to be. TinyMCE is a popular rich text editor, see it at -

However it is feature overloaded for some uses, you can see others at -

Yes.  I realized my usage of the phrase CMS was slightly inaccurate, but that was the context of where I was coming from.  Thank you for your solutions.
