I've been reviewing Mura CMS and its possibilities. While it is indeed robust and it appears to have several years of continued success in the market, the cost of training is insane. I can neither afford or want to take a week in California to figure out the architecture, etc.
Does anyone have any other ideas for an out of the box CMS solution versus creating my own? There are features in Mura that I'd love to have automated for all my site developments, but the cost for training is just too prohibitive and time consuming.
I'd gladly pay a few hundred bucks to an experienced user who could be my tech support guru instead of having to pay the minimum $1000 for 4 tickets of support Mura offers instead of training.
I'm mostly baffled at how to manipulate the templates the CMS generates and after looking at the source files, it seems too hard to tweak them to my liking and their markup code looks a lot like heiroglyphics to me. I'm proficient in CF Markup for developing sites, but their includes and templates, etc. are too messy for me.
Help! I have about 4 new websites to deploy and would love to start using a consistent CMS with good online support options.
