    I am using Drupal at my site. But I have never tried Joomla and WordPress. Drupal is complete CMS that can work for Blog andf Forum.

    Drupal already has a blog. Is there anything in Wordpress that you need, that you cannot find in Drupal ?

    You can fix joomla's vulnerabilities.

    If you are a decent programer and have time to tinker learn joomla from what others say Drupal seems alot more ready to go out of the bag.

    Joomla also has issues w/ PDF's getting picked up instead of normal pages even if you disable them. Hence the link being useless as your PDF has no links on it or structure. It sucks.

    instead of fixing joomla after every 2-3 weeks ( as exploits comes after every 2-3 weeks approx ) one should use another CMS. Patches will be given after 24 hours of the releasing of the exploit. many people can suffer in that 24 hours. may be you can be a sufferer in that 24 hours.

    I wouldnt advise putting a wordpress blog in joomla.
    You would be much better off by creating a blog with joomla. I mean just use the joomla features to build a blog.

    Trying to use wordpress in joomla could be difficult.

    just my 2 cents.

    I use Joomla, Drupal, Typo3 and WordPress and Love them All.

    But integration of WordPress of any of the CMS is not something I would suggest.
    Since there are always some issues if you want to Try and Merge the Functions you like in WordPress.

    But I do like to have a WordPress Blog in a subdirectory of the main site since those articles are picked up fast by Google and seen in the Blog Search.

    As it comes to an Easy to use CMS you could go for Joomla, if you need a robust stable Framework to Build a website, learn to use Drupal
    If you just want one installation for you site choose Drupal as it has a Blog build in.

    In either case you need to work on SEO, but that is also the case with WordPress.

    Typo3 is just an Outsider that depends on specifiek server needs to work well, but if you are planning on building a very large website with lotst of editors, look at it, even if its just to learn about another great piece of OpenSource Content Management System.

    P.s Do a 301 redirect form your main site to the Blog, not a HTML redirect... 301 is better for Search Engine Robots

    this is a very good tip - having blog.yoursite.com is always helpful for bringing in traffic!!
