For what it's worth, I just uploaded my normal site, including the stylesheet, images, etc. In other words, I don't have to change the WA header because I'm just using mine. The CMS content is picking up my stylesheet so if I change a H1 tag to purple and assign H1 to something in the CM area, it will turn purple once I re-upload my styles. Of course a user could override that with inline styles. Does that make sense? I've just started working with this so I may be crazy but it seems to be working just fine.

I have all my CMS files (the downloaded ones) in one folder. Everything else (pages, includes, images) outside that folder, at the root of the site.

I think the content management part of it is really simple to use. It takes a bit to get all the paths correct during setup and to understand what's going on. Documentation just sort of stops and leaves us hanging. Screenshots would be helpful as well.

But once you get to the admin page - way cool! I just wish there was an Add PDF button or it was an accepted format in the file upload. I'm going to add the code that I saw in another thread and see if that works. I absolutely have to be able to let users add PDFs to their sites.

I too have tried Joomla and Wordpress and was not happy with lack of control. I still have a hard time with not being able to 'touch' everything in the database but it's only a small part of the site so I can deal with it. I still have control over the majority of the sites.

Here is the link to my site. I'm just playing around with this and experimenting so I can't guarantee what you will find at any given point but it might help some.
