Just like the name implies, this is a TINY content management system. There are no bells, whistles, or widgets. This little system doesn't even use a database (which could be quite useful with some free hosts). This is a truely a less is more approach. You have the option to make pages and that's it.
TinyCMS is so close to fitting my needs for an easy to use CMS for my students. There are a couple of issues that I see that I think I'll need to fix.
First: The default theme has the navigation across the header. For my kids this is going to need to go down a sidebar. We're going to have too many pages to fit into a header and make it look correct.
Second: Image upload and video embeding. To fix this would go against the idea of what TinyCMS is. But I have the feeling that for my kids it's going to be difficult inserting images into their pages as there isn't a native upload ability in the CMS. The kids will either have to figure out how to use an FTP client (which I don't want to teach), or they're going to need to find a site to store their images elsewhere.
I can fix the first issue by creating my own distro for the kids with a different theme set as the default. I don't see how the second issue can be resolved. I suppose I could look at installing an image gallery like Coppermine onto lionscience but I think at that point I'm starting to increase the level of complexity past what I was hoping for.
