I was looking on the website for "mambo" and it looks intreaging and I was wondering if anyone has used a CMS before and do you have have any words of wisdom on using them. It seems to make sence that if your site is in constant change that this is the way to go.

 

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I too am interested in anyone who has had a good experience with a CMS package. I played with them a few years ago and was't that impressed with the ones I tried. I'm thinking about using one for a new project I'm working on however. Any help is much appreciated. The website I visited before was http://www.opensourcecms.com , but I'm looking for more first hand experiences from TCH members.

I haven't messed with it that much yet, but I know many here have (we have a lot of mambo installations). But just wanted to drop ya a note here to look at "Joomla", as that's basically replaced Mambo (or is the latest version of mambo depending on how you look at it).

I use CMS Phpnuke and Xoops in several mine hosted in TCH, e functions very well.

They are sufficiently practical and interesting solutions and function relatively well.

 

At the moment I am looking at studying Mambo and joomla for next projects.

CMS´s is a good solutions.

Hello,

 

There just used to be mambo a long time ago, then the people which own the mambo name wanted to take the project commerical. As yet, they haven't done so, but the entire Mambo design team walked out and founded today what is known as Joomla.

 

IMHO Joomla is the way forward out of the two

I'm currently redeveloping my websites to be Joomla style, you have to play around with it a bit to start to see the benefits of getting info up faster and easier then posting html pages, it is pretty straight forward once you work out the logics of how it does things and in what order to do the stages. After you do play around then next step is getting the theme you want your site to look like, which is always the harder side of web design.

 

They are also redesign the whole of Joomla at present which might be 1-6 months down the track from being launched according to Joomla forums.

I've used both and heartily endorse Joomla. If you've never used a CMS before, the learning curve can be a little intense at first. But there are many sites on the 'net that will help you out. Once you get it, you'll be surprised how easy it is to use.
