I use ModX all the time Paul and absolutely love it. This is the tutorial I used to get started; http://codingpad.maryspad.com/beginner-tutorials/ Make sure you use the Revolution tutorials as opposed to Evolution as Evo is the older version of ModX.

there is a less bulky and probably easier-to-config TinyCMS
as a joomla noob it took me 3 months to get a page up on joomla, even with the assistance of a hosting install script. so I was considering Drupal or TinyCMS as a replacement.

TinyCMS modifies the page in-place. and it's site-to-site PORTABLE because there is no database (yay!). I like that. this also means you can FTP it to your machine and have a backup of your site and stuff it on a cd. so you can do backups, and hand/send a copy of the site to your customer!

this also means if the site goes down, that backup can spare your customer from loss and give your customer warm feelings (towards you and about their site's status).

I mention site-to-site because I think someone I was updating a site for, that hosting company is no longer in existence. they do come and go.

Just try Drupal if you haven't before.

Drupal: The very popular free and open source Drupal CMS is very often chosen as the first choice whenever someone wants to build a new website. Drupal can be easily scaled for your blogs or enterprise sites, similar to WordPress there are many modules that you can use to increase the functionality of your site.

The roundtrips to the server are enormous.

Yes, gentleone, same case here me too. I have never tried ModX, but it is really faster than Joomla.

I agree with you 'gentleone'. That allows non-technical users to easily update and edit web site pages.
