I have developed several sites using Drupal and like it a lot. One of the
sites I'm using it on is www.w8pgw.org, the website of our local ham radio
club. You can take a look at my blog at http://www.w8pgw.org/?q=blog/1 . One
nice feature of the blogging module is that it lets anyone who's a
registered user set up a blog.

Another nice feature is that it's relatively easy to build your own "blocks"
and add them to pages. It's also easy to add RSS feeds to your website, too.
I've done both on w8pgw.org.

I kinda wish the publishing features were a little more sophisticated, but
I'm not really sure what I mean by that. With that in mind, I'm going to
have a look at Bitflux.

> 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.
