    Good CMS

    Hi,

    I have recently been using Wordpress for small poster websites but i have been wondering if there is a better cms i could be using for this purpose. Wordpress is great as its easy to use and light but its more setup with blogging in mind so can be a bit awkward sometimes when you are just trying to do a standard 8 page website.

    I was looking into things like Mambo and Drupal but they just seem too feature rich. Can anyone recommend something good. I need something easy to setup and maintain but with good community support such as themes and seo mods.

    Thanks

    I've used Joomla for several small sites, add an SEF plugin and you're set.

    Hi,
    I've been learning Drupal for last few weeks. I don't know if Drupal is good or not. I just want to try one cms more so I could have at least comparison.

    I was thinking about Wordpress. Why exactly do you think it's sometimes awkward to work in Wordpress?

    Thanks,

    I use Drupal all the time, and by far is the best CMS. Easily customizable.

    I have been using Mambo, Joomla, Drupal and Wordpress for my sites. It all depends on what you wanna do with your site. Since you just want to create 8 page sites both Joomla and Drupal are overkill.

    Checkout SkyBlueCanvas or Simple CMS, they seem to be what you are looking for.

    Just use pages instead of posts and it's really no longer a blogging platform at all.

    I'd go with joomla. I built small and large site with it. For my smaller site I simply disabled certain functions and kept only what I needed.
