I'm considering redoing the entire website in a different flavor of software. I'm not too worried about conversion as I can write a .NET application to strip all of the data and parse it out accordingly.


My question to you is ... what good CMS's are out there that have a lot of versatility?

I have experience with php Nuke, post Nuke, Joomla, but I've been out of touch with those flavors for quite sometime.

Speed and many features is my target. I like offering as many neat features as possible.

I might also be stepping out of my realm a little bit and ask for assistance in developing the new site.


PLEASE NOTE : This will not effect the current site until it's fully functional and operational.

If I have the time I'd help you develop something. I haven't used a CMS since I was able to program my own though, so I can't help you there.

I was wondering if I might be better off starting off scratch.

drupal, joomala,wordpress, are all cms. they run most efficiently on linux and php code.

i worked with ektron cms, it is vb.net or c# but cost $5000.00 for a licence.

if you want a .net content management system, good luck, ektron is the best, but is not cost effective

there is also a .net nuke, but you need to utilize their layouts
So if you meet me Have some courtesy, Have some sympathy, and some taste

I'm cool with sticking with a PHP based site and design. I have a Linux hosting server and I'm comfortable in that environment from a editing standpoint or small application development standpoint.

If it was .NET I could develop one from scratch. Doing that same project in PHP would take me forever.


Edit, I've been toying with four of them lately. dotCMS, Joomla (I made one of these professionally years back), cmdDesign and ezPublish.

I won't take on a CMS that does not have a discussion board, shout box and instant feedback chat equivalent.

My goal is to obtain a more updated software without losing many of the key features we currently have. We can continue using DragonflyCMS with no problems, but I like new things.

What forum software are you using now (PHPBB?). There are definitely ways to integrate forum software with CMS' like Joomla.

The one we currently use is predicated off phpBB, but was slammed around by Myndworx to add a lot of features.

Joomla + Latest/Newest phpBB would be a good combo I believe. I think recreating the fan shout would be simple for any CMS too.

I've never used Joomla before but it's PHP based right. If so you could probably just insert snippets of code here and there to insert functions of the site you want.

I should say.

Any good CMS + Latest/Newest phpBB would be a good combo I believe. I think recreating the fan shout would be simple for any CMS too.

Too many options and I'm indecisive as to which direction I wanna go.

phpNuke, I'm familiar with, but community seems near dead.
Joomla has great community, but seems slow.
DragonFly community IS dead, but maybe I can just code what I want with help from a few others here?

I didn't like the forums for drupal.








This is a brief layout of what I won't go without on the new software, if there is going to be one.

They have "CMS critics" now?

I'm not sure Kevin is interested in paying over $2000 for his CMS.

There sure are a lot more CMSs than I ever imagined.

phpNuke - Currently as it stands there are numerous vulnerabilities that affect all versions of PHP-Nuke, including the latest release 8.1.35. Until a new release is made it is strongly recommend to avoid this software.


Interesting.

Would that include Dragonfly, which is a fork of phpNuke?
