which one is the best cms to build a website?
@emaderam - thanks for the reference to the top 3 comparison : [rackspace.com
...] - a great overview.
But folks needs to be able to drill in a lot deeper and that's where it can get confronting.
It's a deeply complex question I think, because it comes from, simply, what do you want a CMS to do and what can the system accommodate and can you trust the people you engage do it and guide you. And then, of course you are limited by your own knowledge and familiarity with the scale of your objectives.
Personally, I think there should be a thread out there that says " what do you want your CMS to do - Mom and Pop to Enterprise Sites." Then a checklist of what each can and can't do well.
Can anyone reference any authority articles something along these lines?
As a business owner, the temptation is to gravitate towards the 3 majors, Drupal , Joomla and Wordpress because they are widely supported by large communities with a knowledge base and globally competitive rates. But I'm not sure this is 100% wise.
