What is your favorite CMS to use and why? Am considering a few and wonder which one others prefer.

if it's a simple site, say 50 pages or so, I like wordpress. For all it's flaws, it's easy and well supported.

Thanks Wheel, I like WordPress as well. What if it was a bigger site, say it started out small and I wanted something that would scale, to say thousands of pages.

Drupal is pretty good and scales up well, and has a lot of documentation.

Joomla may work as well but it is horribly lacking in any developer documentation so if you plan lots of core customization you will hate it.

Thanks for the quick replies and advice. I do plan on doing some customization so it sounds like drupal would provide the better solution for this project.

They'll all scale pretty well for large numbers of pages, it's the complexity of the site that makes the difference for me. I've said it a hundred times, but I won't tire of saying it: if Drupal does the job out of the box, you should probably be using Wordpress.

Did you mean to say that if Drupal does NOT do the job out of the box then you should use WP?

Nope, I think you read it right the first time.

If you don't need customization, then don't bother with Drupal - use the much more intuitive wordpress.

You'd go to Drupal only if you need something custom.

Simply wordpress. For all it's user friendly functionality, it's easy and well supported.

Thnx

Drupal is better if you want custom. WP is better for end users creating content. Drupalmis my choice.
