    Agree on Wordpress. Others have tried to compensate with some additional features, but, the support and focus creates a base all it's own.

    It is easier to find hosting already friendly to Wordpress than with practically any other CMS.

    Wordpress was not initially supposed to be a CMS, but with recent all the plugins it has now you can pretty much call it a CMS and I agree with everyone else it is the best.

    The best CMS is that which serves your needs. It can be a custom one but if it works smoothly who cares. My vote is for site2you

    WordPress allow you to create pages easily and update the pages in every way possible.

    The CMS needs to be SEO friendly. WordPress itself allow you to create SEO-friendly URL called permalink. You can also set the Meta data to be used on every page. In addition, there are plugins for Google sitemap as well as Yahoo sitemap so that Google and Yahoo can find and index all the links at your site easily.

    The blogging feature is a vital aspect of a website. It allows you to keep in touch with your readers through constantly updated information. For a corporate website etc it can include latest news about the company or press releases.

    I would recommend WordPress for managing websites. It has a great library of themes which you can use to change the outlook and design of your website as well as many plugins for you to extend the use of WordPress, and to use it for ecommerce purposes. It is lightweight and this allow it to be used for building a fast -loading website.

    Drupal just released version 7 - you might want to take a look at that.

    Wordpress - is probably the easiest cms I have used in the past 5 years. There is probably nothing you can not do with wordpress.

    Wordpress is better for small to medium sites. If your site becomes bigger you need to optimize Wordpress and that's not a trivial task.

    It really depends on what you are looking for. Personally i find drupal to be a powerful and flexible cms, capable of creating any website.

    I would go this line

    Drupal as best cms, its flexible and has clean code, but its not easy to administrate and user friendly. Lack of good themes.

    Joomla as second best cms. Joomla is also flexible and has clean code, but some standard functions are missing and because is so flexible plugins and aditional installations are making it so messy and sometime unreliable. But its so easy to administrate and has GREAT theme support.

    WordPress as third choice. WP will actually go over joomla but since its not flexible cms, its more bloging platform so it goes for third place. For smaller websites, blogs, and beginners WP will go for first place because it has great theme support, easy to administrate, and easy to learn.

    Цell the fact you need to download something always makes me nervous. I prefer to test tools online & download something when I'm 100 % sure that is what I was looking for.
    too hush-hush system, even though they state it's an open source one.
