The problem with these systems is as soon as your client asks you for something that it can't do and there is no extension for you are caught with your trousers down.

I'm no expert on joomla but all these CMS systems have a base set of functions and then extension libraries.

It depends on what kind of sites you are building of course, for a run of the mill site it is no doubt a good option.

But if your building a site that is in constant development you'll get unstuck sooner or later.

I agree. Plus to be honest, using 3rd party software takes the fun out of coding. And you are open to security issues if they are open source.

Hi all,

>>using 3rd party software takes the fun out of coding

Totally agree with that, coding things yourself has it's benefits; you know what's going on, and you can re-code things later on (providing you remember to comment on more complex functions/classes) when you can see a way of making things more efficient. The big + point for me is, the learning aspect of it, sometimes I do stuff just to see if I can, sometimes the curve of learning can be steep, but in the end its totally worth it.

Cheers,
MRb

Check the open source repositories there are really good CMS packages other than the popular ones some are dedicated and tiny for specific tasks so you don't have to re-invent the wheel.
