Right now I hae a website / blog using WordPress. Please note that I bought a hosting. http://www.fablefox.com Anyway, I think it's time to move on from blog to simple cms, as I want to automate ads, and things like that. I want my site to look like this: http://www.phpbb2.de/ Does that site use phpBB for cms or what? I'm still new at CMS, and I use autoinstall for my wordpress. My site doesn't need bell and whistles, just it look like phpbb2.de, and has my current banner (which I can redisgn to fit the template). On the topic, does anyone know of a very simple cms (content management system) that is easy to set up and learn, and improve on.

Stay far, far away from PHP-Nuke and anything derived from it (PostNuke, Dragonfly, XOOPS, etcetera). The codebase is horrible and full of security flaws.

Joomla is very easy to extend, theme, and use. Haven't used Drupal but compared to Nuke Joomla is very nice.
