(5/5)

Those who know me know I am a huge fan of simplicity and minimalism and when these two traits can be found in a CMS, well, you pretty much have my interest piqued. Simplicity and minimalism doesn't mean a lack of functionality, however, and in the case of ProcessWire, it means a whole lot of features packed into a no-nonsense CMS without the fluff.… Read More →

With the release of Joomla 1.6, we decided now would be a good time to do a followup to our previous review.Installation hasn't changed and is the same number of steps so we won't cover this during our review. One thing that would be nice to see in future versions and that we would have liked to see in this release would be the automatic removal of the /installation directory at the end of the install.… Read More →


Drupal Review

Drupal Review

When I first looked at Drupal back in 2002 I'll admit to being completely unimpressed. It had a very plain interface and seemed to offer only basic functionality. In July 2009 I had some spare time and based on many positive reports I decided to give Drupal another go.I'm so glad I did.The year since then has been a journey of discovery through the wealth of free Drupal modules and the well documented, intelligently designed Drupal code and API.… Read More →
