I have spent a month researching Content Management Sytems and have come to the conclusion that the German CMS's available are by far the best for both features and value for money. If you want something more proffesional & polished than the free scripts available and havn't got serious $$ to spend then (as far as I have seen) they look to be by far the best value for money solutions.
I would like to be proved otherwise but I cannot find a single English based CMS that can come anywhere near matching the products below (If anyone knows of any then please tell!). The nearest thing I have found is ezpublish, but having tested it out, seems rather cumbersome, bloated and slow, and not have as slick as these below.
Anyway I thoought I would share them with you, as I see so many posts ask "what are the best CMS's around" and no one every gets an answer other than phpnuke, postnuke etc - all off which seem a mile away from the slickness of the systems I have listed below, and (IMO) are only suitable for "hobbysites".
Anyway although not free all these are less than $200, and I would appreciate your thoughts on what you think of them : - which are the best and for what situations etc etc and hopefully the next time someone ask's "whats a good CMS" we can give a more helpful answer than try phpnuke.
I like the look of WebEdition - numerous modules, very clean and fast, tag wizards, puglin for editing template direct in numerous editors inc Dreamweaver etc and a lot more.
Please try then out and give your thoughts.
PS only WebEdition has an English version of their website, but you can translate the site using googles translation feature.
