CMS Fridays: Picking The Right Content Management System
I’m in the process of setting up a few content management systems for clients, and it’s been an eye-opening experience, not because the systems are crude, but because they actually work pretty well. SilverStripe and WordPress are two that I’m looking at using on a consistent basis, but there’s a few resources out there to help you select one:
- Six Revisions has a list of the 10 promising systems it has selected
- Open Source CMS is the mack daddy of CMS lists, and a lot of them have online demos
- CMS Watch is a bit more techie, and is a news portal covering the major systems
- Sometimes a blog engine is just what you need, and Smashing Magazine has reviewed 10 of them
In the coming weeks, I’ll go through some of the implementations I’ve been doing to make WordPress and SilverStripe sing. Stay tuned!
