Looking for cms with no rendering, just database usage..

We currently use an inhouse written content manager that we use to put advertisements, news articles, ect into a database.. Our custom sites then pull this information from the database and render it on the screen..

Were looking for a new content manager that has more features than the one that we currently use.. Only ones I have found are for creating an entire site and they do the website rendering themselves, but this isnt what we want..

Does anyone know of a content manager that just puts records into a database that we can then pull from the database and render using our custom sites?

This sounds like you want a CMS which understands your database too.
I think most CMSs will come with their own kind of DB and of course added functionality.

There's one i can recommend. It's called Kentico. (www.kentico.com)
Sorry it is not free but try it out. Cheers.

kentico.com is a CMS which uses MS SQL Server.
sitecore.net it really rocks, sitecore 6.5 is the best CMS with socail media integration

Ill look at both of them today, but do they put content into the database so that it can be extracted easily? I dont want to use the rendering that the cms's provide..

I would like to know if the solution I posted earlier suited your requirements.
Kentico & SQL server blend well.
I suggested this because you categorised the query under mssql.

Be blessed.

None of them will work for us.. Were just going to add functionality to our inhouse cms system..
