I am about to fall in love with this simple and straight forward “content management system” / “web gallery tool”. It is not easy to classify it but several demos and reference sites are linked on their project pages:

http://www.indexhibit.org/install/

“indexhibit” seems to be an easy to use system (php4, mysql, …) to display your content. It uses a very clean two column layout and is basically designed to show some text and some pictures in an “Exposé” like manner.

From playing around for 20 minutes with their demo site: I can say that the experience for the user and the administrator of a site both seems very smooth and enjoyable. I will see how the installation will work out on a plain vanilla web hoster and will update. But so far I am quite excited that a simple smooth cms might be in sight for my two / three personal domains which still display the “under construction” text for the last three years.

Update 1: Found my favourite Theme “horizontal” with customization options

I just found my favourite display theme for my “exhibits”. The horizontal theme is really slick. And in its plugin/theme .php file you can easily find the customization bells and whistles.

and it can also be administrated from my iPad. Great.
