Wordpress V/s Others
Which one you recommend to use as a best CMS

 8:35 am on Sep 13, 2012 (gmt 0)

SO here is a question I have put for all you guys:
Tell Me which CMS is the best according to you, Which one would you recommend to use for creating website/blog WordPress or any other? Please do not fail to mention the best quality, which is why you recommend that.

Best is in the eye of the beholder. Perhaps try some of the classic threads on the topic to get a range of opinions:

I suggest you take a look at their features, see which suits you the best and also try them to see with which one is the easiest for you to work with. The ones i've read about here and in other forums that have very positive feedback are WordPress, Joomla, ModX and DotNetNuke but i've only used WordPress so i can't be of much help. For me i tried WordPress first and i haven't looked for another since. It is easy enough to use.

Joomla and WordPress both are good and better open source content management system. Many people think that WordPress can be used only for blogging, you can easily configure it for other work. Also, it is very easy to install on server. The people who have enough knowledge about coding also will build the website without any difficulties. Joomla on other hand is best CMS for designers and administrators. The choice of these website depends on the website purpose and knowledge of web development and design.

What is best for others may not be necessarily be best for you. The best way out of this would be to make a note of the features you want in the CMS you want to work with. Having done this, you should be able to choose the right CMS very easily.

I would recommend that you use Ektron, since it is considered as one of the best CMS tools. The latest version 8.5 has a lot of good features added to it. The old indexing service, which often gave numerous problems, has been replaced with a better and latest one.

What is best for others may not be necessarily be best for you.

And asking what is best usually boils down to "What CMS do you know?" With the hundreds out there, who can say which is the best?

I started in with Drupal 4.6 in 2004 or so and Wordpress about the same time. I did a long and exhaustive search (those two were a lot less dominant than they are now).

Now I still use Drupal and Wordpress. Has nothing really come along that's better? I have no idea. I know more and more about Drupal and less and less about the alternatives. Most people are probably like me.

Unless a killer feature comes along in another system or the one you like goes out of active dev, once you know a system, you tend to stick with it.

What's the best OS? I bet 99% of the people out there will pick a flavor of Windows, Mac or *nix. Ask them what other operating systems they know... they won't be able to name many let alone speak intelligently about them.

Depends on many things, I hate when I have to answer this way. But if everything depends on me (choice, structure, etc...) then Drupal. I also use Wordpress, mostly because it's easier to build and deliver, like build and sell. Not many can get along with Drupal, takes a while. Those are my options and personal choices, but I still rather build on Drupal.

For smaller websites, a flat file Content management system will be better.

In my suggestion Word Press is best one because........
1. It is very easy to use and any one can learn easily and does not need technical knowledge to operate it.

2. It is fully free to use and free themes also available here.

3. Here we can easily add blogs and very easily installed Word Press to our server.

4. Word Press provide easy customization and it provide many tools.

5. Online security is available in Word Press. So it completely safe.

6. Here plug-in installation also available. In Word Press we can utilize all facilities in cheap cost.

>> So it completely safe.

Nothing is ever completely safe. Security is a relative concept based on too many factors to name. If the site has something worth stealing, I don't care what CMS it is, it's a target and not likely to withstand a determined hacker. So it comes down to how good you are at hardening your hosting environment & CMS versus how good the hacker is.

I think it's safe (er... excuse the word choice) to say that no site on shared hosting is "completely safe" and only servers run by the very savviest admins will resist a determined attack.

Quick question: if you want to sign into your site (SSH, FTP or admin interface), do you have to be coming from a specific IP, use SSL/TLS and be on a specific, but non-standard port? Probably not.

I recently read an article by a guy who ran a site dedicated to fighting server attacks, so they essentially had a big target painted on their site. They endured a significant attack almost every day for years without bringing the server down. In order to achieve this, they created their own server stack that was locked down in all sorts of ways that your average webmaster would find intolerable.

Safety and convenience are always at odds... and most CMS and their server setups are designed for be convenient first.

designed to be convenient first

Boy does that sound like M$ or what!

WordPress has a very mature developer community, and you can get tons of off the shelf plugins. I don't think there is really much of a decision here. I use it in conjunction with the membermouse plugin to run one of my sites that brings in over seven figures a year. WordPress has made a lot of progress over the last year or two with speed, and I think it's only getting better.

Joomla and Wordpress both are good, But if you are asking for best then i personally recommend Wordpress.
