Hey all, I've been fumbling around searching for the right CMS solution to my personal website. I've always spent too much time updating my website, and I just want an easy to use CMS now. I think I basically need to extend a regular blog to include some custom fields. I'd prefer a pre-build blog plugin or similar solution where I can simply extend the data model to include some extra fields.

I would like to start with a news blog type of base, as I'd want most of the functionality provided (sorting by tags and categories, slug, and perma-links, etc...) - all the pre-built blog solutions I've seen include the fields: tags, category, title, date, image, description (all of which I'd want to use)
I would like to add additional custom fields: 1 text field, custom datatype field (or maybe just another text field), 2 file upload fields, and perhaps a couple more.

I'm looking for something using Python or NodeJS (because I'm familiar with those languages)

I appreciate any suggestions, recommendations, google search terms, links, etc... to help me out. Thanks in advance!

It kind of depends which part you want to be "easy". Updating your blog on a regular basis is very easy with CMSMS, but configuring it to your needs requires a bit more work. It's not a ready-to-roll blogging platform.

If you wanted to try it, you'd probably want to start with CGBlog. It's a fairly basic blogging module but does let you add categories and fields, and extend with other modules or plugins. Like anything else with cmsms, you can create custom templates to your heart's desire.

CMSMS uses Smarty for its templates, which is a PHP-based templating engine.
