Content Management Systems

 2:45 am on Nov 16, 2006 (gmt 0)

For small publishers out there, Content Management Systems can be quite expensive, but is there a program out there that would work for the small guy?

search for "open source cms"

This will throw up a few - all free to use and have different levels of appplication.

there's lots of Open Source CMS out there, mostly based on the LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) architecture, but a few for Windows and even for Macintosh. Among the most commonly used, with numerous of installations (and therefore a quite active userbase) are:

  • Typo3: steep learning curve, but after that the sky is the limit
  • Mambo/Joomla!: much much easier to learn, but somehow limiting in the long run and quite controversially discussed due to inherent security issue
  • Wordpress: primarily a blog solution, but thanks to a very flexible template system often used as a non-blog-CMS too, very easy to use

I would recommend to look at one of these three, but as has been said before, there's zillions of others.

Hi soccrt

There are many CMS out there but its important what you expect from a CMS?.There are CMS's for built a website and some for blogging .As a long time CMS user i care;

1- Security
2- Seo

I would tell you beware of any x nuke CMS ,i can suggest you have a look at
Typo3 , (if you have the requirements )
