[thelist] Intranet cms recommendations

Hi Steven,

Thanks for the feedback.

I use wordpress personally and am aware of the workflow already built in - very handy.

What I haven't been impressed with is the templating. In my experience, the templates are clunky, a bit counterintuitive and difficult to work with, and the software isn't as flexible as a publishing system like Expression Engine. Wordpress has some definite pluses, but still feels like it wants to be a blog no matter what you do to it.

Then again, these are only my impressions and I'll definitely take your comments into consideration.

WordPress makes an excellent CMS these days.  Open source, great
community, and huge  breadth of plugins and themes available.
