fyre, check this out: http://www.interspire.com/webedit/
I use this to allow clients to manage or semi-manage their pages (while keeping control of the ‘account’ to yourself) and it works well. Plus, the console/CP that they will use is TOTALLY customizable for your own company logo and info… beautiful!
A brief copy/paste:
WebEdit is a simple to install PHP script that makes it easy for your clients to edit their web site online. It includes a basic file manager and WYSIWYG web page editor that’s similar to Microsoft Word.
Your clients don’t need to know HTML and you can have WebEdit up and running on their web site in about 15 minutes from now. If you’re new to PHP we can even install WebEdit for you free of charge, and it includes a complete, private label end-user guide that you can simply hand to your client. It explains exactly how they can use WebEdit to make changes to their web site.
and no I dont work for them or affiliate, I just use the product, and it works well.
