Can a CMS like Drupal or other be suited for a quick and clean design, test and deploy of a Jobsite ?

I looked for "powered by Drupal" among others and I can't seem to find anything that looks simple and functional.

Any other Free / low cost CMS to use besides Drupal ?

If you have links please msg them to me.


PS: I am asking for advice as to what others have seen and or tested themselves that can be comparable (if not alike) in usage needs, design, traffic, etc.

Not simply repeating the comparison process and scratching my head looking through CMS Matrix and alike.

There are lots of free opensource Content management systems.
There is a very popular site (hint ^) that allows you to demo about 100+ systems.

[opensourcecms.com...] is one of those "authoritative sites" that we make an exception for - it's a "quality link" and asnwers the question in a way that so much chatting can't.

That said, they're all default installations, and that often gives you a really poor idea of what a CMS can really do.

BTW, what's a Jobsite? Job listings? Project Management? Can you say a little more about what you're looking for?

If you were to use Drupal then CCK + Views + custom node templates would make this relatively easy.

You could list jobs by city, by state, by company, by keyword, by skill, etc..all without ANY programming once you learn views + arguments.
