Looking For Content Management System

Posted by Anonymous on 125 Points
Can someone recommend easy to use content management system for small business website? I have heard about Adobe Contribute. Any feedback on it?
I want to be able to edit existing pages and add new pages as needed.

    We've had excellent results using both ExpressionEngine and SilverStripe. Depends on your needs. Are you designing it? Contribute isn't really a content management system. It's a rudimentary means to editing pages yourself, while in theory not breaking the site.

    We have worked a lot with Interspire and it has always done a good job for what we need it for:

    Bill Schick is correct about Contribute, if you want a true CMS, Contribute is not your solution.

    Wordpress, wordpress, wordpress...for small, medium, large business. It is something a small business owner can load up with ease and there are a ton of resources for support.

    I have been using Text Pattern for two years and it is fast and easy to use. The agency that the museum hired to deign our site has since moved on to something else, but it has worked well for me.

    One of the best things about it is that it is FREE and open source. The developers do continue to improve it and their is a big community that is willing to help.

    I'm a fan of the opensource project Joomla, have been using it for 2 yrs for my own site and clients. Plus, the new 1.5X version is much more intuitive. Granted it does have a slightly higher learning curve than Wordpress, but I consider it more flexible especially if you're trying to build a community oriented website.

    But as Bill said what you choose depends on your needs. Do you plan on setting up an ecommerce shop? What industry vertical are you in? etc.

    Tell us more about what you do and your requirements.

    For a small business looking to use the web to generate leads, a CMS that is combined with inbound marketing tools is probably better than a CMS that does not include tools for blogging, SEO, social media, analytics, and landing pages. Check out for a CMS plus an overall inbound marketing system all in one.

    Disclosure: I work at HubSpot.
