Build a CMS website that has client back end as well as admin backend to update website?

Question by kurtworks2: Build a CMS website that has client back end as well as admin backend to update website?
I am looking for a preferably free CMS solution that would make it easy for me to create a client admin panel with my own custom design etc I would like the clients to be able to update pages, change images in an image rotator … It would also be nice if I could add a mail section to the client admin panel that would allow them to check their mail from the website.

I currently use Joomla, WordPress, Drupal and Mamboo but I am Frustrated with all of them.

Is there a program for a mac that I could use to build a nice template/ design for the website then make an admin panel to update the site?

    Use Ultimate Web Builder – http://www.redesigns.org/web-builder

    You can design, build, and manage the website from any computer with an internet connection. You can set up your client’s website with it and design it (the program will convert your design to CSS, and you can also add custom code to it if you want). Then your client can manage the website from their website Admin Panel. The software comes with a photo gallery/slideshow application, and you/your client can easily change around photos/ set up new phtoto galleries/slideshows. Also comes with other features, such as a mailing list application, blog, forum, e-commerce/PayPal shopping cart, coupon codes management, and more. If you buy the web hosting from there too, it will come with an online email application your client can use, as well as free professional installation of the software/updates.

    In my opinion, bloated content management systems like Joomla or Drupal are terrible for the end-user experience and not very developer friendly. Concrete5 is a new powerful CMS that is easy for developers and even easier for end-users. It works on a in-context editing model so you make changes as you’re browsing your site. No more portal clones! If you’re tired of long training sessions and tons of client support requests, try a demo of Concrete5 here: http://bit.ly/concrete5cms
