Mambo open source comes in retail and open source. PHP / Blogger / CMS the blogger part has more to be desired but is under dev. http://www.mamboserver.com Todd -----Original Message----- From: Stephen Caudill [mailto:SCaudill at municode.com] Sent: Thursday, December 11, 2003 11:40 AM To: thelist at lists.evolt.org Subject: [thelist] PHP / XML Blogger / CMS Hi all, I'm looking for reccomendations for an Open Source Content Management System with a blogging module built in. This software should ideally be PHP based with an XML and MySQL (or just XML) back end. Output code should be valid, based on current standards and tableless. Here are some packages I'm looking into and my impressions of them: Bitflux http://bitflux.ch/developer/cms/ - PHP, XML and MySQL CMS. Full publishing framework (no blog), looks very robust. Nice wysiwyg for non-techies. Nucleus http://www.nucleuscms.org - PHP and MySQL CMS / Blog. Clean, simple, portal oriented. Nice plugin building system. Drupal http://drupal.org - PHP, Postgre (or any Pear supported DB) CMS / Portal / blog. Pretty comprehensive. Huge community extending it. EZ publish http://ez.no/ - PHP, MySQL CMS / Application Framework. Open Source, but charges for professional use (not that that is bad). Looks really nice as well. If anyone has any experience with any of these or other similar systems I'd really appreciate some feedback. Personal experience would be great but hearsay is welcome as well.
