pre-sales questions

Hello All,

While PowerCMS seems to be an excellent solution for a simple CMS application in comparison the use of joomla and drupal,I still feel a bit apprehensive on purchasing this product. I will more than likely purchase the supersuite of extensions but am not completely sold on this solution. Keep in mind that I'm a total newbie to web design and coding having built two sites with another one in progress right now.

What I'm understanding about PCMS is that I would build a template in dreamweaver with just the base design for the site. I would complete the template with the specific code from PCMS that denotes where the editable content will be. By saving the file as a .php I should have a working editable page.

The only coding I need to do in php is specific to the details expressed in the start guide relating to denoting the editable content and the only mysql activity is uploading the .sql file to the server (be it the live server or my virtual testing server). I can then populate my website with the content that is required through the admin area which will be the same way the client will do it when they want to change the content.

This is how I understand it and it seems pretty straight forward. I just feel I'm missing something since I see several users on this forum with issues. I haven't read except for one. Anyone have positive reviews on this? Am I understanding the functionality correctly?

Thanks for any replies.
