A free CMS system for ASP.net

I'm looking for a free CMS system for asp.net so that I can add, update or change the content on websites that I am developing without having to go into code to change them.  Basically I would like an admin user to be able to change the content if need be.  Where can I find a system like that?

For Kentico, Unbraco, Mojo and Atomic CMS...don't they cost money?  I'm looking for a no cost or very cheap solution.

Gmailjini, how would you create your own content manager?

Jini Jose.Net Team LeadCommented:
first you want to create the database.
for a very simple CMS you need the below tables

1) Pages - for storing the dynamic pages
2) Users - for storing user informations

then in the asp.net side create a master page with header section, menu section, content section and footer section.
place a menu control in the menu section and load the dynamic page titles to menu.
then you need to create a page to display the dynamic page.

you also need to create the add/edit/delete pages for dynamic page creation in the admin side.
you can use the ajax html editor for the content editing.

hope you understood ....

happy coding ...........................

How do you use Orchard with Visual Studio 2010?

robastaCommented:
open the Solution file (Orchard.sln) in the src folder. The solution will open in VS2010.
>In the solution explorer, find the Orchard.Web project. click on it, and then press F5 or click 'Run'
>You will then get the 'normal' CMS setup, where it asks you for connections etc

More details on the project's home page: http://www.orchardproject.net/

I tried to install one of the databases for the CMS system and it seems like access to this datasbase was granted.  Any reason why?

Which one of the CMS is the simplest?  Umbraco is a little complex and I would prefer to use something simpler.  In addition I would like to use Visual Studio to work with the project as opposed to web matrix.  So which CMS is the easiest to setup and work with?
