I have read a lot about Mambo and researched on other CMS, but I am still not sure with Mambo will suit my needs.
I need to build a site that will be a community of a certain software. I would like the site to have it's content tied together and looking updated, that why I am interested in a CMS.
I like when sites have a voting poll, scrolling news, last forum posts, last articles posted, etc.. displayed on the home page. That way there is also something new.
Will mambo come with all these features? Which ones do I have to install after? Will it require a lot of moding?
I am really interested and about to install and try it.
Thanks a lot
The degree of moderation required will no doubt depend on your site traffic; be sure to enable any verification steps (e.g., image-based registration) to keep bots from registering. Changing the names of key files & folders can help, too.
I'm still very happy and confident with the decision to use Typo3. Compared to Mambo, it has a very steep learning curve, but it offers much higher flexibility. Nothing so far I couldn't solve with Typo3.
The interesting point is, that I have heard from many Typo3 consultants, companies and freelancers, that they are adding Mambo to their service portfolio too. They see Mambo as the second big open source CMS next to Mambo. Still the regard Typo3 as the more professional choice, but they see the demand for Mambo in areas where smaller sites, less
