The history of web development like most coding runs in fits and starts – sometimes it accelerates with a burst of creativity and at other times things slow and nothing new appears.
We are researching a timeline history of content management systems in order to track the “phases” of development.
I started off with a broad web search and came up with some helpful Wikipedia articles
But none of thses actually show the history and timeline of CMS.
I know that it’s only a very recent development because early websites that I used did not have CMS embedded – most were hard-coded. There’s a need for the answer, clearly. And so we have posted the question... Now can you help us create the answer?

The first products were around 1995. At that point everyone was building their own, and the commercial offerings were pretty terrible. Many of the first CMS's were really just frameworks on which a CMS (as we now know it) could be built. Interwoven was one of the first enterprise level systems. I remember there were some mid market ones that came and went due to being pretty terrible pieces of software. NCompass was one of the popular ones. It was taken over by Microsoft and killed. Red Dot was started in '95 was probably the most successful mid market CMS around the time of the tech-crash, but its since waned.

The first CMS I ever used was PHP-Nuke in 2002-2003. It was pretty good back then! Not to sure of the project now though.

I used Userland Frontier around the time that they were transitioning from a general-purpose Mac scripting environment to a web publishing system in early '95. Details here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UserLand_Software

The first CMS I used was made using Allaire Spectra in 2000, then Xoops in 2002.

Great article, I believe a very old version of Drupal was my first encounter with a CMS!

I'm well settled into Drupal now BUT ....
My 1st CMS was also PHP-Nuke in 2002. It was ok but I was still addicted to Dreamwever. [yah, I know YUCK! LOL]
I checked out MOODLE for a while and even built a proof of concept site for a small school.
While working tech support at a call center in 2006 I saw them switch from custom ASP to JOOMLA. I was BLOWN AWAY!
It was then that I knew that an OpenSource CMS would be my ticket into the competitive world of web-applications development.
I dabbled in JOOMLA for 2yrs but durring that time I also discovered DRUPAL. at that point I realized that I had to kick JOOMLA to the curb. The reasons included, but are not limited to:
1] A totally FREE model of add-on distribution results in a larger and more collaborative development community.
2] The API is amazing and quickly evolving
3] The granularity of page content and layout control from the GUI are mind staggering.
4] Larger, More Complicated, and More Famous sites were developed in DRUPAL.
5] The sheer quantity of public events acros the planet ensured that I could physically connect with the community in ways I never could with Joomla. [although they have increased their community presence since then]

I first used Kea in the late-1990s. It was a custom CMS put together by local company Katipo Communications.

The first CMS I used was Synkron.web in 1996. A Danish offering, since bought by Dynamicweb.
