    I have been testing out Civicspace which is based off of the Drupal platform. It is very impressive and search engine friendly. Although, it could use an easy to modify template system.

    From my experience Drupal is the best and Xoops the worst.

    Joomla (mambo) is my favorite. Xoops is the buggiest I've ever used.

    Hmm... theirs a site somewhere (opensourcecms.org) or something like that. You can demo pretty much all of them.

    www.opensourcecms.com is what mdvaldosta was referring to and it profiles and demos more than just CMS. It's a must-have bookmark!

    I personally prefer using Textpattern (textpattern.com) for development of most of my sites. It allows me to put my code where I want, making layout in it is just as easy as making static site. Just need to put your HTML code in the forms from admin panel.

    I am using it on my company site as well as couple of client sites.

    There is one more CMS called Modx (modxcms.com) it allows you to enter diff meta tags, titles for diff pages / section.

    But I personally found Textpattern better than Modx..may be because I am used to Textpattern.

    Regards,
    Deep

    e107.org and typo3.com are the best CMS in open source.

    Have you tried HotcakesCMS?
    This can be downloaded from Sourceforge by typing in hotcakescms

    It is ASP based with simple access database and is very easy to use. Comes with user manual and how to setup with either FTP or on own server.

    I tried PHP-Nuke, but switched to Mambo for its simplicity. So far I'm pretty satisfied...

    I found drupal very easy to use, but very limited in what it does. If it does what you want out of the box, it would be great.

    Does Drupal have a large developer community?
