Ok so I've resisted installing a content management system on my webhost for about a year since I got it. Basically I just wanted a high degree of control over the look of the site. Being a grad student, however, doesn't afford me much time to continue development of my site so I'm coming close to giving in. So I'm curious what sort of CMS or other software are you using to help you manage your website? How easy is it to set up and how much control does it give you over the layout?

I quite like Mambo. It is very simple to use, very powerful, and has a large number of free add-ons. Just make sure that you turn on the caching option [Smile] . If you want to see it in action, we run it for everything on MacMod, and a number of my clients run it too. We even run it on Ackoo.com for some reason. I like it a lot.

I use PHPx... http://phpx.org/ for my site. It's young. It's small. It's has a lot of potential.

For my forums, we use SMF. For personal site, I am using pico [Smile] . I have used PHP-nuke. Easy, customizable, and the AOL meets myspace of content management/blog tools.


I have heard good things about phpwiki


EDIT: wasn't sure if you meant high grade professional level, or uber blog level...
