I am a webdesigner (not well experienced). I have done various static websites and also successfully completed sites using JOOMLA. But this time I want an Opensource CMS that should be capable of creating ONLINE Magazine. There are more CMS available but all of them are Commercial (PHPCOW, Vivvo etc). Catagorized look of joomla is not good.
I want Catagorized Front page (Short Descriptions of articles of various catagories on Front page).
Pls Guys I know you are well experienced , help me..

Thanx in advance...
The ijoomla magazine theme is ok but it does not validate last time i looked and some of those failures concerned me. I also dont want to spend time hacking a theme i paid for. I opted for a different commercial theme.
What you want to do beyond a magazine layout will determine which one is right for you.
If you have a variety of subscription levels with granular control over access, then I recommend Drupal.
Joomla templates have module positions and you can create a nice magazine layout with those. It is also quite easy to vary the look and feel from issue to issue
I have not tried a magazine layout in wordpress so i cant really comment on that one.
