i m trying to make a website for daily news publishing company, I wanted to know which cms should i use for that purpose. I am thinking of wordpress as it is clean and simple but is there anyother simple cms for news website
A great place to try out all of the free systems is at the opensourceCMS site. They have everything setup and installed. You can go try out the back end, publish some sample content and see which one appeals to you.
You need to be more specific as to what you're looking for. Virtually every CMS can be used to publish news; by almost definition that's the section of any site that's most often updated, after all.
What volume of content are you looking to post-- an entire metropolitan daily, or just a few articles? What is your budget? What is your technology stack?
There are plenty of content management systems designed specifically for news publishing:
CampWare CuteNews EllingtonCMS EzyMedia PHPcow ProsePoint (based on Drupal) Saxotech
But these days, it might get more bang for the buck by customizing a generic content framework. Drupal, for instance, is running behind sites like The Onion and the New York Observer (see [groups.drupal.org...] for more).
It depends in part on the size of the site. WordPress is good for a weekly or small daily newspaper. I know a number of larger newspaper sites that use Drupal, but I would recommend it only if you have tech people with available time.
I personally like ExpressionEngine for newspaper sites (not free, but only $250) especially because it works well with classifieds and categorizing content.
You may want to have a look at Django. Not really a CMS buy you can quickly develop a very flexible one with it. It was built by a newspaper for their own uses. The modules were designed to allow for rapid development.
