Joomla or Mambo or PHPNuke or PostNuke (deciding?)
This is a slow little thread!
I'm cross-posting this because I need help deciding which content management system to use.
I'm creating a financial news site which will offer newsletters(mailing lists), news, reviews, interviews, banner advertising, stock tickers etc.
Originally I was trying to set up a PHPNuke site at a different, * disabled word ** disabled word ** disabled word ** disabled word *y host and having problems. I thought PHPNUke would be good because it offers a few things instantly, like the ability for people to sign up for newsletters, easy portal appearance and functionality. I don't really need a bunch of people contributing info to it though, which seems to be what it's mostly designed for.
I can't determine what, and how PostNuke is different with, and if it would work better in some way?
Joomla seems to have the nicest appearance, but can I instantly set up newsletters and stuff on it? I'm not the most tech savvy person, I've made numerous HTML pages but I don't know any server side back end stuff like setting up data bases or whatever, so a CMS with instant functionality in this regard would be ideal. But I realy like the appearance of Joomla and it seems to have a really cool editing system
What does PHPNuke do that Joomla doesn't do and vice versa? I wish I could find a really good comparison between these different CMS's instead of just individual descriptions.
What would you suggest I use after reading this verbose description of what I'm looking for? It's difficult for a newb like me to decide, and it's extra stressful because I'm in a hurry to have something up for Tuesday.
Joomla is by far the best choice.
Hi Soundhunter. I will copy my reply
First about PHP nuke. Definitely I do not like it. I have never created even a single web site with it but I am not comfortable with:
Deprecated modules system
Its community and documentation
Lack of support for this system
The whole CMS looks years behind the others. Try to install several CMSes on your WEB site (Mambo, Joomla, Typo3, _Drupal_) and you will spot the difference from the first look. PHPNuke is always hungry for CPU and Memory resources as well. We fully support it but when its database grows it starts to produce slow mysql queries which slow down the entire web site.
Drupal is my choice. It has great documentation and the CMS itself is flexible as hell. Just check the example web sites and you will see what I mean:
