Question

Which Content Management system in Fantastico


Which content management system (offered within Fantastico) is best for a beginner - should have an easy learning curve and yet be robust and flexible?

Some of the choices are Joomla / Drupal / Geeklog / Mambo / Typo3 / PHPwebsite / Xoops / Siteframe etc.

Thanks for your comments!

You would actually consider to manually install (any of those CMS's, if you search on this forum you will see the reasons why). Anyway my preferred is Wordpress even tho Joomla is getting loads of good words.

Just do a search before you chose to use any of them.

Tho, isn't this the wrong topic for this question?

It has a list of all the scripts Fantastico installs.

I also recommend Wordpress.

Wordpress is listed in Fantastico as a blogging software; does it also work as a CMS?

Hello,
Wordpress is a blogging software but has some nice functions. What kind of website would you like to do? tell us first it will help.
Otherwise for CMS I recommend joomla for its community and drupal for its simplicity. You can check at opensourcesCMS to test all of these
Good luck

If your going to have blocks of text with links etc. here and there, you'd be better off with Joomla. You can do it in Wordpress but you have mess with code and stuff. But for blogging? I use WP all the way. Mambo right now has very little support since Joomla broke off from them. Typo 3 has a steep learning curve and Geeklog is configured kind of strange. IMO only.

Drupal 5.1 is good too, but takes a bit of time to learn.

If you know your way around computers and you take the time to follow Joomla's User guide, you should be able to find your way around it. Gaining knowledge takes time and effort, there's no real way around it... yet.

I agree with you Dan, of all on that list, I would go with Joomla too.

The company I work for has decided to push joomla as our main CMS solution. So far it's been going great, no problems and all our customers seem to enjoy it. Granted we have someone in house that does training sessions over the phone or goes out to their office to train them but I think it's a solid CMS and I have no problem recommending it to anyone who needs a CMS.

On that note, since you have fantastico why not just give them the option of all of those and let them decide? No point in limiting your users if you have the ability to provide all of these with little hassle.

The wisdom of that comment is unchallengable (and of course the point is well taken) - but it is so easy to attempt the easy way and eschew the hard way!

I find either Mambo or Joomla the best.

Wordpress or e107. (e107 isn't in Fantastico).
The rest are fairly shoddy scripts that have frequent exploits.
