Hi All,

I'm new to CMS .. but have tried a gang of them in the last couple of months ... and keep hearing about the security issues with them, and it makes me hesitant.

But at the same time, my site is just too big to handle without a CMS system.

I need something that is secure and functionable and hopefully, that allows the importation or wrapping of HTML content easily so I can move my existing pages to it. Even if I have to rewrite my existing pages as PHP would be fine .. as long as the system itself is secure and easily managed.

I've tried PHP Nuke, PostNuke, OsCommerce, OsNukLite, and a couple others as well as Envolution. I LOVED Envolution ... great abilities and HTML functionality .. but they're not going to be supported by the majority of the community anymore from my understanding, which means less blocks and modules or that new blocks and modules coming from Open Source probably won't be compatible with them anymore. AutoTheme has already stated that they probably won't be compatible in the near future. I'd like to make sure that whichever one I choose as "THE" one, has community support and is updated/secured regularly.

I realize that it's pretty much a matter of personal opinion, but I value the opinions here and would appreciate hearing your preferences and why.

Thanks much.
