Having not read the whole thread I apologize if I'm retracing already
covered ground.  I've had success using Org's built in projects [1].
Although this results in a flat html web-site it is easy to impose a
consistent theme, and to publish large numbers of files.

To give some personal examples my homepage [2], and even the wiki for my
lab [3] are both published using Org-mode's publishing facilities, the
latter with a git repository backend and some fancy post_update hooks.
For smaller sites (like my home page) I just include the project
definition in an elisp block in a commented heading of the main Org-mode
file (e.g., [4]), and for larger efforts I define the projects in a
separate elisp file, or even in an external script which can be run with
an Emacs batch instance.

Hope this helps. Best -- Eric
