After endless hours of reviewing & testing different CMS systems I have come up with the conlusion that no one seems to have written a common sense CMS.
Not for techies, but for ordinary users who want their professionally-styled website not only to present their company, but also to make money!
When I ask for recommendation most say "Mambo-Jambo" is the greatest...." So far I see that all "Mambo-Jambo" (e.g. Mambo/Joomla) sites are identical, hard to customize unless you have good programming skills, etc.....
I use XOOPS.
With the XLanguage Module, I'm running 4 languages on my site.
The group management system allows you to give specialized admin access.
They have banners.
Liase module lets you do customized forms.
Multimenu module lets you do 2nd level nav.
