I use a custom coded CMS for most of my new sites now. It has only the features that I need and nothing more. I know and remember each and every line of code and modify the code to meet my requirements in no time.
Wordpress is what I used for my sites till I realized that it has a few issues like it had more features than I needed. Unpatched installs of wordpress or any other common CMS are prime targets for hackers who use scripts to identify and attack such targets in large numbers. Very few hackers will bother to mess with my custom coded CMS because it doesn't give them the satisfaction that they are likely to get by attacking hundreds or thousands of websites.
IMHO, for those having the time and ability, custom coded CMS is the way to go. You may call it "hardcore php-mysql" way of doing things.
