    I would definitely say that WordPress is the most popular CMS - I see more customers using it than phpBB and Joomla combined.

    No problem, you may also want to take a look at hxxp://php.opensourcecms.com/ to see demos of some of the most popular open source softwares.

    Also, instead of making your own autoinstall scripts you may want to consider using softwares like Softaculous, Fantastico, Installatron, etc.

    If you are using WHMCS you may want to consider using their hook system to let users choose what script they want installed and then when they signup it is automatically installed at the same time their account is created.

    if your talking about
    http://www.softaculous.com/wiki/inde...Install_Module
    i saw it and it makes it to hard to mod the install files if i wanted to install something thats not supported

  12. #12
    No, I was referring to the actual hook system that WHMCS has setup: http://wiki.whmcs.com/Hooks

    If you are already having to custom code everything you might as well integrate it into billing to make it install automatically and save you time.

    Very true. I've worked for a few companies that have done this and the integration is extremely helpful.

    ahhh, its a good idea but i dont just use whmcs

    i made my system control whmcs then whmcs controls webmin

    GMS user side -> whmcs -> webmin

    so thay can control it on there user side

    I know server management, but when it comes to writing straight code I'm not the best. I just pay WHMCS to do it most of the time, nobody know their system better than they do.

    I like Drupal but rarely actually suggest it to customers because I consider it to be more of a developer's platform to build a website off of. If just need normal user needs to create a simple website there is no reason they can't use WordPress for it.

    I also really like PHP-Fusion CMS. it has most stuff most people want built in without need for plugins. It is very lightweight and customizable. It has a very easy install.
    Something awesome
    coming soon....

    I dont't know how does anyone define "Best". I personally like MODx, but as far as we all know most people prefer to use WordPress for any personal or small-business websites, because it is very handy CMS.

    PHPBB is a message board unless you turn it into a CMS.

    Drupal & Joomla seem to be widely used.

    As previously mentioned wordpress is an amazing CMS and its very easy to edit which to me is very important.

    and again, as previously mentioned, drupal isn't bad either (though I'm not too fond of it.)

    Wordpress is king for a reason

  32. Wordpress is popular and therefore has a lot of support and development, Drupal has a steeper learning curve, but gives lots of advanced features.

    As for needing a bigger list, you could add these:

    Joomla
    phpBB
    Cushy CMS
    Silverstripe
    Plone
    Modx
    FrogCMS
    Radiant CMS
    DotCMS
    Concrete5 CMS
    Typolight CMS
    Pligg CMS
    Expression Engine CMS
    GoodBarry CMS
    LightCMS
    TextPattern CMS
    Movable Type CMS
    Contenido CMS
    AxCMS
    Typo3 CMS
    Pagelime CMS
    Konductor CMS for Designers
    GetSimple CMS

    Most of these aren't used that often and so no-one would penalise you for not offering all of them.

    Best Regards,
    Rhys Dawes

    I have worked for Zoomla and Wordpress. But just love wordpress. It is the best CMS and most popular too. You can easily customize wordpress unlike zoomla.

    Wordpress for blogging and Joomla for CMS.

    Another vote for Wordpress. As a matter of fact, the USAF is moving to that for all of their CMS needs!

  36. My vote goes to Drupal. Highly customizable and the module system and API is the best I've ever seen.

    Wordpress is in the second place.

    After spending a lot of time looking for a solution to develop a website with some special features, I tried Joomla and few free extensions and the result is just fantastic, so I guess I can safely recommend it.

    Wordpress is definitely the most accessible/easy to use CMS. Personally I'm loving Drupal 7!
