Recommendation for an online publishing software

Hi all again,

I am developing technical content, that I would like to publish online easily.

Since more than 1 person would be doing it and frequent editing required, I was looking at some open source package that would allow me or any non tech savvy writer to easily publish such articles.

The key requirements are:
there would be Sections, Sub Sections, maybe another branching,
The articles may have images.
The pages should all be HTML so it becomes easy to spider them.
A search facility would be good.

I am using MySQL database.

Any ideas or recommendations anyone?

Thank you very much.

Dunno abt the mysql part, but as for the rest, might want to try "nvu" ( It's not terribly sophisticated. It's kind of like frontpage except better, but it gets the basic HTML/CSS stuff done and has an integrated site manager.

Maybe you want to look into one of those blogging software such as movabletype. It is free, for non commercial use.

Mambo is a webportal which allows something similar.
