NewsForge:
Choosing an open source CMS
June 26, 2006 @ 06:37:29

Whether you're just coming into the world of the web or you're an old hand just looking for something different - a different CMS, that is - this new article over on NewsForge today might help you sift out a few you might not want.

It seems as if everyone is a Web publisher today -- from the habitual bloggers and online diarists to the companies running major news outlets, portals, and magazines -- and they're all using some kind of database-backed content management system (CMS) to do it. There are a lot of CMS choices -- Drupal, Mambo, Bricolage, WordPress, and Plone are some of the most recognizable names. While they all perform the same basic functions, you have to pick only one. How do you do it?

He goes through two different questions to think about before you settle on the one you'd like to use:

  • What to look for - including the licensing, what language it's in, is the project active, is there support for it?
  • Which is the right one for me? - does it have the features you want, is it 'just a blog' when you need 'just a blog', how customizable is it?
