hello every1,

I am planning to start a content rich website where I will add content about Health and ftiness etc. BUT this is first time when i will be using CMS (I know a lot about wordpress but I am a CMS noob).

1- I am looking for a cms where I can post content by its categories So users can easily browse to them.

2- I want a CMS that use static URL related to my post title like WP uses.(its hard for CMS but still possible after using some plugins and mod-rewrite)

3- capability to ad block anywhere on left or right.

too many functionality is not necassary.

I have heard lot about Joomla but I also heard that its uses lot of power and its not good for shared hosting environment. I also dream and pray that my site will have good traffic.

WP is alright for you I think. As for the traffic it all depends on your writing skills and the content that you create. Don't expect the CMS to do that for you.

Agreed! But I would suggest a self hosted WP

Choose drupal! It has so many possibilities. You can implement voting systems, comments sections and all sorts of stuff that you have like features on the popular social networks.

Well I look at it this way and trust me I deal with the same issue very much, as I constantly go back and forth on this very topic.

I would choose wordpress much easier to manage and update, I am not sure of a number but if I am being read by very high traffic I may change to a joomla scenario maybe that is at 500 pages.

I am a member of thestreet.com and I love the site for the content you can achieve this level of sophistication with Wordpress
