    Best free CMS ?

    I am unable to decide betwen phpnuke,postnuke, DCP-Portal and EZ.
    I think I wont use EZ cause i found its too hard to manage.
    Do you have any ideas about other CMS system.
    I basiclay need simple news system, any dating and Classified system is added bonus.

    thanks

    The "best" cms is the one that you are most comfortable with that has what you want...

    You can run over to http://www.opensourcecms.com and try many out to see how some are and see which fit your needs the best.

    There's a saying that goes: "You're never better served than by yourself". I'm sure you have your idea of what the best CMS system would be like. If you have some time on your hands, you can design your own little perfect CMS using Zope, or even Plone. Then you're sure it's exactly what you want, and you can modify it and upgrade it whenever you want to suit your new needs or expectations.

    Of course if time is not your friend, then there are 1000's of ready-made solutions, and as someone else said, it's just a matter of finding which is the best for you...

    Good luck!

    Have a look on Geeklog. It has news feature and you can add a classified plugin.

    Maybe you already know OpenSourceCMS to test CMS live.

    ezpublish all the way!

    it can be a little intimidating at first but out of all of free CMSes it has the easiest install procedure and unmatched customization capabilities

    just compare it to vingette!

    weblogging software ...

    weblogging software ...

    is amazingly flexible these days. I would recommend using WordPress. It's already had a number of hacks, modules, and contributions built for it. Also, Drupal is another very good resource - a bit more complicated, but also a bit more powerful overall.

    I've been going through the typo3 video tutorials.
    So far that program is awesome, especially when your start editing the templates.

    I think it blows phpnuke and mambo away, in reference to functions and power.

    This one isn't free but it comes as a $4.95/month hosting package. Seems ok for entry level but not sure it has enough features for a more complex site.
