    Smile Which CMS produces the best results?

    Hi there,

    I have never really delved into CMS's that much for reason that I have been learning site design and CSS.

    I see that ease of updating is essentially the number one reason most people want a CMS.

    What are some other reasons?

    What are the best CMS's out there?

    What are the industry standard CMS being used?

    Which produces the best results?

    Starting with site design and CSS is a good place since these are at the foundation of CMS principals. Kind of like understanding how the engine works before you buy the car.

    Are you looking for specific platform or features? I would recommend looking into CMS journal or CMS Matrix which are CMS comparison/review sites

    What are some other reasons?
    - managing many different types of content
    - the ability to display content in many ways
    - the ability to have different user groups, eg editors, publishers etc
    - the ability to organise data, eg by categories, by relationship, by date, by some custom variable

    - there's no best since different CMS's are better at some projects than others

    - there aren't any "standard" ones. There's are 100's of CMS's!

    - none of them and all of them. Typically with a CMS you build the site how you want, all you're doing is manipulating the CMS's functions to get the desired outcome

    For what purpose..

    The best CMS's fill very specific purposes.

    For general website updates Joomla/Drupal is hard to beat. cheap extensible.

    For news (Text, Video or Audio).. Newsbahn by All Headline News or DTI's webspeed are untouchable.

    For Blogs. Wordpress

    Again.. depends on the application.
