I have a cpanel-based hosting account and I'm just looking at Fantastico, which seems to have mushroomed over the last few years to provide quite a long list of options to instal CMS systems and other scripts onto a domain name.
Whilst familiar and comfortable with Joomla and Wordpress (and to a lesser extent Drupal) - I wonder if some of the otehr options might be useful for me.
Perhaps some of the commerce things like OS Commerce/Cube Cart/ Zen Cart.
Are these things as easy as Joomla to work? Easier? At first glance they look a bit confusing but I tihnk Joomla used to look daunting too.
What are the special considerations I need to think of when thinking about a site that can deliver content to mobiles?

Many of the current cms systems have downloadable themes, optimized for mobile devices. It is true that phones are getting better at displaying true web pages, but I still think it makes sense to supply a lighter page than you would serve to a conventional browser.
Yes - the versions of the various scripts which are available on my current Fantastico do seem to be behind the up to date versions available direct, so a manual instal seems like the best choice.
What I'm really getting at is whether I need any special ingredient to be able to offer downloadable content to mobiles or whether its the same as offering downloadble content to PC.
I realise that mobile themes/templates can make mobile browsing easier but is there anything to stop me using Joomla (with which I am familiar and comfortable) to build a site to deliver mobile content?
If someone downloads a J2ME game to their mobile, is this the same

As for the question of whether you have to do something different to sell downloads to mobile users, I don't know, but hopefully someone else does.
