The big advantage is that they manage all the CRUD, and you spend 80% of your time bending either one to do the non-standard 20% which you absolutely *must* have.
[snip] I think that is the "krux" of it for me... At some point, I started writing CMS's from scratch for every client. Maybe I won't buy my dream home as fast with this philosophy?? ;-), but all my clients receive the stuff they need and don't have to muddle through stuff that isn't pertinent to them. I am not apposing the use of general CMS's... just commenting on the 80/20 idea. When you build stuff yourself, you are building exact needed features and you are probably understanding of the system in general quite a bit more than if you are using a CMS for the masses. However, there is usually a lot of interesting apps/features that come with general CMS's, so I see the benefit, and it is probably the reason I am watching this thread!... it may be time for me to crawl out of my box and open my eyes to the latest-greatest CMS features.
