Mambo is an open source, php-based, content management system that is noted for having an easy-to-use tempating system.

A couple links:

A client recently requested a recommendation for a open source content management system for an educational web site. They were mostly interested in publishing curriculum materials (versus interactivity) and were not excited by wikis. After looking around, I ended up recommending Mambo. So far, I'm impressed with what I've seen people do with templates for it. Also, the ease of such things as modifying menu items, installing/updating new templates (skins) and modules (plugins), or switching between templates, is something we could only dream of with TWiki. roll eyes (sarcastic)

While this looks like a great solution for folks who don't want/need the flexibility of a wiki, I personally could never go back to "drawing inside the lines" prescribed by any such portal architecture. However, one feature that caught my eye was a wrapper module that allows you to include other applications within a resizeable iframe. With a little creative skin design for TWiki, I think you could make create a very nice wiki module within Mambo. Now, that might something worth playing around with.

The core development team of Mambo recently forked and have created a new project which they are calling Joomla.
