in reply to Looking for a CMS

I appreciate the feedback here. we are a domain name registrar. So, the Perl scripts are focused on checking domain name availability against various tlds. if the entered name is available, then the user selects the name and adds it to a shopping cart for payment. There are also scripts for doing renewals, transfers, whois updates, etc. My goal is to improve the overall look-and-feel of the site without requiring a rewrite of the Perl CGI scripts. With the up-coming hundreds of new extensions, there needs to be a lot more educational content and resources made available to help end-users utilize their purchase. This means an efficient way to handle a lot of static content. thanks

    Sorry calzonia, that is a what, not a how

    Changing the look'n'feel is %90 HTML, so it all depends if those CGI scripts use template engine, uri helpers ... in anyway, changing them will require changing the url, and/or uri helpers manually

    OTOH if you're not using templates and uri helpers/builders, it will be really hard

    I should add that the scripts are just not running in the background or cron jobs. they output html for the users to interact with.

    For the static content, you may not necessarily go for a CMS. A static web site generator might actually be easier. The perl generator Templer can nicely mix old static html with newer input files. This should ease migration.
