Replying to What's The Best CMS
Posted 03 October 2009 - 06:57 AM
Choose CMS which suits your comfort. Sometimes all we want is simple posting capability and spam protection, designs etc. In that case, choose cms based on ease of use and availability of your needs. Don't choose cms cause you saw some good themes of it on other sites. Choose based on how much you're comfortable with it. To find good CMS for yourself, you've to experiment with some CMS.
Wordpress- wordpress CMS is perfect for bloggin needs. If you want to start with blogging and article posting. Then this is good cms. It has lot's of plugins and themes. You'll find it simple and powerful.
Drupal- This is more of advanced and comes up with lots of plugins and themes. Not suitable for newcomers to CMS. It has steep learning curve. It takes some time for you to be comfortable with it. But in fact it is more feature packed CMS than anything else in market.
Joomla- Like drupal, it is also powerful with features. Lot's of themes and forum integration available. And most of the hosting providers do support this script in fantastico or scriptaculous. If you don't want to use drupal for complexity then choose joomla. It is bit easier than drupal.
There are few more that i would like to mention like textpatter, movable type and mephisto. Expression web is also cool CMS, check the demo on their site. You can try all the top suggest CMS for yourself and then decide.

I'm currently using e107, but I don't like it that much. The support is quite terrible, I have had quite a few questions go unanswered, and the few that got responded to took a while. There haven't been any security updates (or updates at all) in the time that I have had the CMS installed for (~8 months) which makes me wonder how they are keeping up with security. The admin panel for e107 is nice, and things can get added very fast. Some of the themes are bad (namely the default ones), but there are tons of sites where you can get free e107 themes that look decent.

Mambo is pretty much the same as Joomla as far as I'm aware.
For blogs Wordpress is by far the best system in my opinion.

Although Wordpress is meant for blogging i think it is super easy to make it a cms with all the plug-ins and extensions wordpress supplies. It is easy to use and a wonder to look at but i just didn't find it was a strong enough cms for me to use although i recommend this.
Drupal was nice and really powerful. I like this probably the best out of all of them but the templates available severely let me down. I would say that it may be a tad bit confusing for some although but most cms are. Although once you know what you are doing your gonna find it great!
Joomla is the one i am using now and i would probably draw a line level with drupal on this one but it has the best range of templates a cms can ask for. But there are some features Drupal have which Joomla doesnt but i just work around it. Joomla is really easy to install also and very easy to get around. I find the extensions library as a major factor i am using this as well. I recommend this as well. Although some knowledge of css, php and the general site stuff wouldn't hurt.
I vote Joomla!

Now it is very easy to create theme in dupal using dreamweaver extension
Drupal is the opensource CMS supported by a company.
the only criticism faced by drupal is its user interface, whish will be overcome by version 7 to be released jan 2009
