I’m thinking about making my next HTML template compatible with Cushy CMS

I’ve set it up before and its insanely easy, just add special classes and its ready. The beauty is if you don’t want to use Cushy, the extra classes don’t interfere with the theme.

So my question: do any of you use Cushy? Would it be worth it to add the tags to my templates? Think it would get any extra sales?

I don’t personally use Cushy CMS , but I think it was on NETTUTS once. I checked it out and found it pretty great at what it does. Haven’t needed any other CMS than Wordpress since, but if the day comes, I’ll definitely try it out.

Maybe you should just let people add their own classes, or include two separate versions of the theme (one with and one without cushy classes).

It looks quite good for a basic site, however I don’t really like having it hosted on a server I have no control over.

WordPress for me :)

The pages are still hosted on your own server, so at the very most if it ever disappeared you’d only lose one way to edit your pages. You’d still have the files and you could still edit them.

That being said, yes, a self-hosted version would be great.

CushyCMS is great way to allow your clients to edit static sites. I actually have a screencast scheduled for Wednesday at NETTUTS on this subject.

I’ll update this posting when it posts.

Isn’t on the Cushy-CMS a screencast how to implement it?

^ yea, a pretty decent one too. I guess it can’t hurt having the information in more than one place, just means more people will find out about this great service.

I could see the pro account being useful if you had a bunch of simple client sites, but $28/month seems a bit steep.

The Cushy-Crew maybe thinks if you have a lot of clients you have money, too. I think the “normal-version” is useful for me. Maybe i will register and check out the features.
