Although a little late, I thought you might want to consider MovableType
(movabletype.org). I originally built my own CMS using a bunch of asp
and a MS Access mdb database - unfortunately, that really wedded me to a
MS server and MS software - plus, adding articles/posts was an absolute
pain. This was also before CSS came en vogue and site upgrades were
horribly complicated. I then found *nuke and was happy for a while
until I had a lot of problems with security and php hacks enabling
others to 0wn my website... oh how I hated that message. I did like the
*nuke style, though, because there were so many plugins that I could do
pretty much anything that I wanted.
Then my philosophy on web design changed and I became a minimalist...
*nuke was out. A friend of mine finally convinced me to give
MovableType a try about two years ago and I've been hooked since. There
are a lot of plugins available - although, I really don't use any, as I
simply apply my CSS theme to different things that I wanted to *plug in*
to my website. So, I can't say how well some of the things you are
looking for are supported. I can say, though, that the code is
extremely well written and I have never worried about or had anyone hack
the site. I'm sure anything is possible, but it is the most reliable
and secure CMS I have run to date - and it is *really* simple to set up.
I'm thinking about setting up a FreeBSD-based CMS/intranet and wanted to
know what other people were doing.
I have a tiny bit of experience with PHP-Nuke because my webhost uses it.
Although I have no real complaints about it, I am not wedded to it.
Most promising seems Plone, which is based upon Zope. But it seems to be
tremendously different from *nuke. The ports version is current and appears
to work, but poking around the Plone site I wasn't able to get a feel for
whether it truly can provide all the stuff I'm looking for. These are
things such as:
- Discussion forums
- 3rd-party themes (I'm not looking to develop my own themes... I'm looking
to get this up fast. Instead I'm looking for an established community of
Plone-theme creators who like to create custom themes available for
download, so I can pick one that appeals to me)
- a variety of other modules/blocks (strength of the *nukes, but couldn't
find a similar following for Plone).
