I think WordPress is the best Content Management System (CMS).  

I’m sure that is no secret, if you know me or have been reading my blog for any amount of time.  I currently run 7 personal websites and each one of them are on WordPress. 

What is a Content Management System?

A software system that provides website authoring, collaboration, and administration tools designed to allow users with little knowledge of web programming languages or markup languages to create and manage website content with relative ease. A robust WCMS provides the foundation for collaboration, offering users the ability to manage documents and output for multiple author editing and participation. ~ Wikipedia

    Agreed. Many clients I work with are trapped by outdated and clunky CMS systems. At one time these content management systems were cutting edge. But no more. WordPress has come a long way from it's humble, blogging beginnings.

    We are hoping to get more developers and designers aware of BigTree CMS. It is a recently open-sourced project, developed to ensure a positive user experience for both the front end website user AND the people who have to use the CMS. While we all found WordPress a good alternative a few years ago, I have to say it has its limitations. It is particularly troubling to have to piece together a huge project based on plugins and outside elements managed in varying degrees of professionalism, etc. WordPress has tried to morph from a blog into a CMS because of a huge need in the community. However, it's only a matter of time until better systems are available – systems that started out as content management systems not blogging platforms. This is where we hope BigTree will play a role… Check it out – it's open source and has plenty of documentation – and we are always welcoming feedback from the community.

    As a WordPress user myself, I couldn't agree more. In terms of features, Joomla is nearly equal, although its selection of third party plugins does not compete with those of WordPress.

      Out of the two, I prefer Joomla. I like the way the article management system is laid out.

We would love to hear from you...
