Making A Better CMS (15 Nov 2004)
Every organization I have ever worked with has kept the content management interface completely separate from its public-facing Web site, yet almost every open source CMS mixes them together.

These systems provide a mechanism for anyone to create an account and log in to the CMS directly from the site being managed. Yes, I know I can edit the template and take this out, but the only sites that really require this functionality seem to be open source projects. This is an indication that you’re badly misidentifying your audience.
