Any opinions on what is currently the easiest, most secure Content

have major problems to avoid?

That's a personal question because it all depends on what you need your site
to do.  I dabble in many of the below listed CMSs and have testbeds of
several of them set up just to play around with.

Your best bet is to go to and try some of them

Some thoughts I have

Geeklog - This looks promising for what I need, but not very many
plug-ins/modules available.

phpWebSite - This looked good for awhile, then I realized it was kind

Also, not a lot of development on this project.

Mambo - Couldn't get the install right with this. Also, what is the
difference with Joomla, etc?

Post-Nuke - I actually used to have a Post-Nuke site 2 years ago. And
apparently Post-Nuke hasn't changed since then. Except more of the
modules were broken.

Drupal - Seems good, playing with it now. The whole theme-engine,
screen redraw thing is very annoying. I guess you would need a theme
that doesn't use the engines.

Fun playing with them all so far.

I recently reviewed a bunch for a non-proft, but eventually gave up to
do something custom.  Some of them seemed to have too much, and those
same ones didn't seem very flexible.
