YikeSite offers the best of both worlds. It’s simple enough for the technically challenged to log in and edit their website, but also offers advanced customization functions and a theme API for the more technically astute.

Jeff Ward who is the president of Animikii, and the chief brain behind the YikeSite project was recently interviewed by The Web 2.0 Show. If you’re interested in listening to what Jeff had to say about the project and the development process, head on over and download the MP3.

I recently worked with Jeff and Animikii to design and code the public website and default template for YikeSite. It was really awesome to work with them, especially on such a new and cool project.

If you’re looking to start up an easy to maintain website, or want to get your clients using something they can understand, give YikeSite a shot.
