I never used Fast Edit previously.. I don't know anything about that. Ok i will check Beverly's website (fast-edit.co.uk) what is in it ?
I was going to post much earlier in this thread, but I didn't because I would have written something very similar to what Beverley did in her first post. Now I'll jump in just to add that I do agree with what she has said, and that CrazyMonkeyz has a decision to make-- no choice of CMS will be the best for everyone, but there are a few possibilities. If the goal is a simple way to allow the client to edit just part of the page, then FastEdit is a good option, and there is nothing fundamentally wrong with it, as you seem to imply. It doesn't encourage bad coding practices or anything like that; it just doesn't have as many features or scaling ability as some other CMS options, which means that it isn't appropriate for every project, but it is appropriate for some, and from what I've read here, I think it's an option to consider.
