    Which CMS?

    Hi

    I'm creating a site for a small community. I want an easy to maintain CMS that will definately have a module where people can post jobs and where people can advertize property and places to rent. I'd like it to look fairly seemless.

    I have used mambo in the past, and think its great (a bit complicated), but wonder if there is anything a bit slicker out there as i'm targeting a business audience - am prepared to pay (up tp $300 for a CMS solution).

    Any suggestions would be appreciated. I have access to the following in my Control Panel:

    Content Management
    Drupal
    Geeklog
    Mambo Open Source
    PHP-Nuke
    phpWCMS
    phpWebSite
    Post-Nuke
    Siteframe
    TYPO3
    Xoops
    Many thanks
    T

    The one I prefer and suggest is Joomla! it is very powerful and extensible!!
    Mambo is quite good for the moment but I am not too sure about his future!!
    Drupal is good too but I think it is a little bit harder to use for beginners
    WordPress.org should be OK for you too!
    I would suggest that you choose Joomla then with the money hire someone to customize it and extend it for you

    Anyway you can also take a look at this site: www.opensourcecms.com to have more info

    I'd Say Joomla or Drupal

    If you want something quick and easy to use now go with Joomla. But if you prefer to get the most out of your CMS and expand it in many ways take the time to learn Drupal, it's more than just a CMS, it's a powerful platform.

    Regards!
