This site has been hosted using the popular blog publishing system from WordPress. It’s very easy to use, the themes can be customised easily, and it doesn’t try to be all things to all people. However, in the interest of keeping all things fresh, I have been looking at alternate CMS systems, including XOOPS, Drupal and Joomla!

Actually, there are probably several hundred CMS applications now available, both commercial and open source. As a result, trying to pick the ‘best’ CMS for your site is almost impossible. To make the decision easier, I decided to turn to the web, and look for some comparative reviews. And the best place I’ve found so far is CMS Matrix.

Run by Plain Black Corporation, the site was created in an attempt to provide a comprehensive list of CMS systems. It is a place where someone can search on very specific criteria and see a list of CMS systems that match that list. I’ve certainly found it useful!
