      lol, yeah this question must be on of the most popular on ANY forum

      Anyhoo, Wordpress all the way for me! Tried Drupal in the past, but that's too hard and too advanced for my taste (very good platform if you know what you're doing though).

      Joomla and Mambo and the likes really cannot compare to the ease of use and HUGE community of Wordpress

      Skip the chit-chat: Lists and everything else, in bite-sized chunks!

    I'd say Drupal. It's certainly not the easiest (or anywhere close
    to being the easiest) to learn.

    Wordpress is way easier to learn imo, but it has weaknesses for
    larger sites with a lot of activity. I like it, but it's not the right
    tool for some jobs or clients.

    Joomla has a lot of themes and support from graphic designers.
    Drupal doesn't.

    If I want to incorporate an html-based design into a CMS framework, CMS Made Simple wins hands down.

    If I want fast and easy, I go with Wordpress. It's well supported and has many excellent templates.

    Proportionality could bonk 'treble' languages though, and pass a champaign (ie, the material faculty) depending on the module picked by the soul.
    The duplex content would feature to be typed by the soul tho'. Could be quantify consuming!

    That's pretty overmuch what I impoverishment. I'm having all the knowledge supplied to me in Land and Cambrian, so rattling what I require is for any page righteous to show the content in the communication that's korea by the mortal, with the designated module obviously stored as a cook so the someone could feed the site in their korea module.

    Wordpress is the easiest and can be used for most common purposes. But there are many other good CMS platforms too. Like Joomla, Xoops and ... . It depends on your need and your ability for managing them.

    I love warriorforum.

    MODx because it's light; not bloated at all, and extremely robust.

    It doesn't require complicated themes (just some tags in the plain HTML) and is super SEO friendly.

    Most importantly it conforms to your HTML and not the other way. The good thing is that you don't need to configure your HTML to fit MODx. Your theme is your HTML

        I have just posted in another thread on the same topic:

        I have used Joomla, Drupal and Wordpress, and in fact I have switched my preferences over time.

        Drupal is really good for high-end web developers where a lot of customization is needed, but it is overkill for most purposes.

        Joomla has a lot of great features and would suit most people's needs. It was my preferred CMS for a time. I found a few elements of it quirky but liked the full range of features.

        But in the end I have returned to Wordpress, which has improved massively over the years and is now a full CMS and not just blogging software. It is very quick, simple and flexible once you get away from the limitations of standard themes.

        If you are building a lot of sites it is better to pick one CMS and stick with it unless you have a specific reason for going elsewhere. That will increase your productivity as you can repeat patterns and clip bits of code as required. For me I just find Wordpress fits the bill but that is not to say that the other two couldn't work equally well for other people.
        It might be worth heading over to that thread to see other comments:

      ditto that. WP is the easier way out but if you want added functionality, Joomla! is the way to go.
