Which Do You Think Is The Best CMS For Us?


I am starting a recruitment firm for which we are designing a website. The confusion is which CMS would be best? We should be able to make a minimum of 200 job postings, job seekers should be able to send their CVS to us and apply for jobs posted, employers should be able to send us their job openings, also the site should load fast, as we have regular updates it should be admin friendly. There are a lot of suggestions like Joomla, Wordpress, Drupal, Expression engine commercial, and silverstripe.

Thanks for all suggestions.

Cheers Steve

Think a custom CMS or Expression engine might be best. I also think that it could be done in Wordpress. Just with a lot of custom post types and plug-ins. Which may make it a bit slower.

Thanks a lot Hanjo, Well Expression engine and Drupal is what is currently under consideration for this project. Its really a tough choice between the two.

Well I read on another forum that the expression is limitless as long as you can code it. So that could be a good choice.

Drupal and ExpressionEngine are both capable, so both would be a good choice for the task. With Drupal you have the advantage of testing it out as it costs nothing (except time, obviously) and seeing whether the CMS is to your liking. My favorite is ExpressionEngine, however. I find it a lot easier to work with, but that is a matter of preference.

I say go with Drupal. I looked at the features on EE and don’t see anything about it that I would be willing to pay for because Drupal can do it all and for FREE.

Maybe you can use wordpress cms, good for seo, and friendly use. You can use plugin if you want your site more powerfull. Joomla also good for make website like news, but its a little difficult to use the control panel. And, you know, i always use wordpress to make any kind website…

Try WordPress, easy to install and lots of plugins to choose from.

I’ll add to the Drupal vote. As an administrator of Drupal, Joomla, Wordpress, and MediaWiki sites (all currently) Drupal 7 with Views and perhaps Maestro (for workflow) would do everything you need in a way that will make sense to you as opposed to the way any other CMS would force you to do it.

I think it depends on who is going to build and manage your site. If you’ve got someone with decent Drupal experience on your team, then Drupal is definitely the best option out there.

For me, Wordpress scores over Drupal when it comes to UI. So you will want to choose WP over Drupal if you can’t find someone with decent exposure to Drupal. You will find it easier to ‘learn the ropes’ with WP than Drupal.

Hope this helps and good luck with your launch!

I guess Wordpress is good. Though I would recommand to consider the Media Sitebuilder.

I think Joomla is the best CMS . It enables you to build Web sites and powerful online applications. Many aspects, including its ease-of-use and extensibility, have made Joomla the most popular Web site software available. So Joomla would be a good choice for you.
