Best CMS for Online Magazine?

    Hi, I wonder what should we use for an online magazine? Is Joomla enough? Is there anything else better than Joomla?

    ijoomla magazine is good to begin with. Adding the correct template would be the best way to begin. Rocket Themes has a good magazine template that really looks well. Once template is installed you get the correct look and feel.

    well wordpress does has but still, Joomla is the best as it has so many features and can be added so easily.
    Moreover, for wordpress you'll require a magazine layout template but in Joomla, module positing can be changed in any theme and hence more flexible

    Thank you friends for all your input. I am convinced now that I will go for Joomla. Though Wordpress and Drupal are alternatives, Joomla can meet all my needs.

    Where do you get nice Joomla templates?

    Anyone has a review for Joomlart. I heard that many of its templates don't work with Internet Explorer.

    There are a lot of Magazine type sites using the Revolution Theme with Wordpress. They look pretty slick and some are ranking very well.

    You would have to be utterly mad to not use wordpress for this. Joomla is not the proper solution. Not to mention, Joomla security is pretty much non existent these days.
