    Guys

    I am trying to develop a complete information web portal. My site name is www.globalcashsite.com that is simple html site that I created myself. But I think simple html based site will not attract more visitors to site and I must need to have some good looking site.

    I install 4 scripts from Fantastico, please have a look and give me your recommendation which one is good function wise and compatibility wise with AdSense, AdBrite, Bidvertiser, etc so in future I can easily place ads on these sites.

    http://globalcashsite.com/geeklog/index.php
    http://globalcashsite.com/wordpress/
    http://globalcashsite.com/drupal/
    http://www.globalcashsite.com/joomla/
    SEMrush
    So far Geeklog and Joomla designs are very impressive. What is your recommendation which one I should choose. You can see my site to have an idea what kind of site I am going to develop on it.

    Thank you

    GCS

    Another vote for Wordpress here.
    If you're going to invest time into getting to know a particular CMS, make it WP. You can hack the crap out of it and make it do whatever you want.

    Usually the path to take :

    First starter : go with wordpress, until you see that it can't perform as you expected
    More advanced : Level up to Joomla, until you feed up with paying for modules and messy code
    Much more advanced : level up to drupal until your site has more visitor than drupal can handle
    Top of the food chain : custom asp script, you wont get here soon enough....

    That is just from my experience developing e-commerce site. others may vary.
