If ever a question caused web developers to gird on their armor and polish their swords… it probably sounded something like…
Joomla vs Drupal vs Wordpress vs EE vs Other? - Which CMS is best?
Instead of raising the ire of the EE forum users, I’m asking a different question.
Our company is moving into some social type functionality (isn’t everybody) and we want to give users the ability to have and edit their own page.
At this point in time this is not allowed with EE.
One of the restrictions of the EE license is…
You may not… ‘Use the Software as the basis of a hosted weblogging service, or to provide hosting services to others.’
From forum posts, this is more a technical decision as EE was not developed with those functionality goals.
I might add, we are continuing to use EE for our own stuff. We plan on having a separate system that the user community will use and we will probably pull in some content via RSS into our own pages if need be.
Most of us have all tried Drupal, Joomla and Wordpress.
My question to the community is… what is your favorite platform upon which to build a social type web experience?
Currently, I am looking at…
BuddyPress (Built upon WordpressMU)
Joomla w/ Jomsocial Extension
Are there any other rising stars that we might consider?
