    If you like using wordpress as a CMS, you should totally check out concrete5.

    It’s free, PHP/MySQL based just like wordpress – but it wasn’t designed from the bottom up to be a blog. Instead it’s a building material that a designer or developer can use to easily build any site that the end site owner can edit. See a typo, just use the toolbar to put the page in edit mode and fix it.

    There’s screencasts and instant personal demos at:
