If im doing a flash site that's arduous action script routines I have to plough through and hidden routines etc I have to try to find and figure out the logic of.
Users get too demanding about updates and I really don't have time to e updating someones site every 5 minutes. So i use Wordpress when I can which has its own limitations. You have to work on it live as its database driven (unless u have local php). Its not like HTML where u can just complete it all then preview in your browser offline, see its all ok then go live.
Also wordpress is a blogging software and needs to be modified for it to function more like a traditional website. This requirement is not understood by many users whochoose themes then don't really appreciate the limitations of the theme or wordpress. CMS is a big issue for me - I tried Drupal and Joomla but they are very top heavy and pretty difficult to get the hang of so Im stuck with wordpress.
If i have to do a flash website, ill do it but only update it 2-3 times a year to avoid constant updates in complex actionscript and flash routines. If the client wants regular content changes then I do them a wordpress site blog with links to it from the flash site.
Does anyone have similar client issue problems particularly with CMS requirements? What are you using for CMS if anything? Do clients have problems learning to use Wordpress or indeed Drupal or Joomla if you are using these technologies?
