Simple...  Simple...  Simple...  That's what I needed.

I belong to a small bluegrass club with 240 members. I'm on the executive board with 10 others.  I'm a programmer and they wanted a small Web Site were the 10 executive members could login and get info.

It took me weeks to find this.  A small CMS using the latest technologies that did not require a month to learn and the price for a non-profit club is right.

For the club I needed a member page with a gridview populated from a MS sqlexpress database.
1) I made a copy of ArticleTemplate.aspx and called it MemberTemplate.aspx and replaced NicEditor with my gridview
2) Edited AdminBar.ascx.  I added my new MemberTemplate.aspx to the RadioButtonList/TemplateRadioButtonList (maybe I'll change it to a dropdownlist).
Then running live in administration, I created a new page from template Member and there ya go.  A new page with a grid view and the roles works great on it!  Maybe there's a better way of doing this?  But until documentation arives, I'm good to go.

Thanks for a great simple CMS
