I found yet another PHP/MySQL-based CMS platform to experiment with.  Textpattern is a small and light system, which I was looking for to implement an idea I had just this morning.  So far here is what I've got.

I used Open Source CMS to narrow the list of CMS systems down to three: Textpattern, Nucleus CMS, and Dotclear.  I wanted something barebones, since I'm going to be dealing with mostly text on this site.  I found that the biggest deciding factor - the one I used to rule out all the other options - was documentation.  If a system didn't seem well-documented I would probably have a hard time figuring out its terminology, which I didn't want to waste time on.  Of the bunch these three seemed the best-documented.
