    There are lots of great ways to manage content - with the days of hard-coded pages in the history books, what do you use to wrangle your information?

    I personally use Wordpress for everything I can. I've used a lot of tools over the years, but Wordpress is the only one I can shape and mold to match any need I throw at it. It's fast, easy to use, and incredibly powerful (especially with the version 3.0 updates!)

    Years ago, Drupal was the first CMS I ever tried using. It was too complicated for me at the time and I never did much with it. We've been using Joomla for our FanForce site for several years now, and I give it a thumbs up. Never tried Wordpress however.

    I use [link=]ModX[/link]. I love the way the templates are done - basic XHTML/CSS with all the CMS magic done through simple shortcode elements.

    I also use Wordpress for some of my sites, but I wouldn't call that a Content Management System, I'd call it a blog system, that can be turned into a CMS.

    Recently, I've been developing my own, however, but I still need to get a better hang of MySQL to make it really work. Its feature set will be very minimal, with emphasis being compact and customizable. It won't have a full featured WYSIWYG, but rather implement a BBCode Parser that I have already developed in PHP using the preg_replace function. Right now the thing is simply a templating system, which essentially means that its a set of classes and functions in PHP to make manual editing of the website easier. Although you still have to edit the content with your editor in HTML and upload it, all you have to do once the basic layout is made is to make the content that goes in the content area of each page, as separate files that get included in the whole thing.

    I recently got a job at my university as a web developer and we are moving all the sites to drupal. Haven't had much experience in it yet, considering I just started.

    I've used Wordpress, but I really should be learning Drupal. It's seems like most of the places where I've been applying for internship are using Drupal.
