    WolfCMS FTW! Thanks for this.

  • http://www.kavamediagh.com Amazing

    Hi,
    Indeed, it’s hard to know where to turn.

    But just a question, in which order where these cms’ listed?

  • Ward O.

    Missing on this list is Perch CMS: http://www.grabaperch.com/.

    I use this CMS in websites for its simplicity and because it’s affordable to a broad array of clients..
    Of course, you should always pick the CMS that suits the particular project’s needs.

  • theo

    Nice, list, for medium to enterprise level websites/organisations I’d recommend TYPO3 – the most downloaded open source cms.
    But anyway, it all boils down to what you’re going to use it for..

  • http://nidenart.se Jocke

    Thanks for the list, bookmarked! :)

    BTW Theo: I don’t think TYP03 is the most downloaded open source cms… Compared to wordpress.

  • http://twitter.com/jonathanulco Jonathan

    Like Theo, Where is Typo3 ?

  • Jason

    I concur. Typo3 is amazing for larger websites/organizations. It has a steeper learning curve but it can handle absolutely anything.

    And as for most downloaded… certainly not on a US level but on a global level it’s incredibly popular (especially in Europe).

  • rogut

    I’ve tried many. The one that stuck (because it is just so easy to use) is CMS Made Simple: http://www.cmsmadesimple.org/

  • Kozie

    50 is indeed a bit too long..

    And why is MODx not on the list :x ?

  • bpr

    So many cms, but i assume that most of them suck if u look at their code, such as “cms made simple” is just awful code and a lot of security lacks, but well, wp code isnt better either, it is very hard nowadays to choose a good cms, as u have sooooooo incredible many options to choose. and of top of them template engines are important for designers, whereas I absoluted hated joomla and drupal for their template handling….but well thats for everybody different as well. nowadays i go with cantao that was called typolight in its early state.

    but to be honest, as most other readers, i do not bother trying all of them, i’d rather make a rand(0,50) and will tray the result + – 1 of that number : >

    all the best

  • http://dshepherdhowto.com/ David Shepherd

    Thanks for the list. Bookmarked and will be looking at some of these for other specific projects. Alfresco looks interesting…
    For my website, I use WordPress because it works and the wide range of templates and plug-ins. It’s a great solution that works for me.

  • http://www.justforthealofit.com/ TheAL

    Wow, I didn’t even think this many choices exist. It’s almost enough to give you a migraine. *lol* I fall into the camp between those saying WordPress isn’t a true CMS and those saying it technically is. Call me a “it’s not, but it kinda is now more than ever, and it’s getting there.” Personally, I say Drupal trumps them all.

  • http://www.wordpressasylum.com Sallie Goetsch (rhymes with ‘sketch’)

    I’m curious to know what the size of the user (and perhaps more important, developer) communities are for these. I know Drupal and Joomla are pretty well-established and therefore viable. Plone I have heard mentioned for a few years. With others–what kind of extensions/plugins are available and how likely are they to still be here in a few years? I’m busy moving someone’s social network to WP/BuddyPress from a proprietary CMS that’s no longer supported…

  • http://www.jerrycobbs.info Jerry

    I’ve been using DotNetNuke for about 2-1/2 years and it does the job for me. Even though you need a Windows server, the CMS itself is open source. Lots of free skins available that are fairly easily modifiable, and so far I haven’t run across a function I couldn’t find a module for. I like that most of what you do is WYSIWYG–I know that’s not everyone’s style, but it works well for me.

    And OpenCMS??? http://opencms.org

  • Nirmal

    The best post of all… Thank a ton. now that I can consider many CMSes for my portfolio..

  • James

    Yeah another call for MODx !!! Really great CMS.

    Ones I’ve actually used on projects and are worth checking out:

    • Pods CMS (transforms WP, used it on a lot of my WP sites to build in additional functionality without downloading a load of plug-ins or hacking. Makes the back-end for users much easier also. TRUE CMS for WP – big thumbs up!!!)

    • Textpattern (very different to WP but very quick and much less bloated. Makes more sense to non-coders IMO. Has very active forum. Handles themes very differently to WP.)

    • Cushy CMS (Very simple but the way it does it is very cool, purely for basic content changes by site owners)

  • http://www.luigiantonini.it Luigi Antonini

    Good list , but without tests and opinions it’s completely useless

  • http://www.webmozaic.com Drew Clarke

    I would also nominate CMS Made Simple (CMSMS) which is as it sounds, simple. One other benefit of this is that you can import any html page to use as a template so if you have a static site that you want to upgrade, you don’t have to start from scratch. Ideal for small businesses that grow or sites that suffer from significant mission creep!

  • Aardvarked

    While the ever-growing trend of people blogging huge lists can be very useful at times, simply listing 50 CMS alternatives to wordpress is not. Picking 10 and offering an in-depth review or even a proper overview of each one and it’s features would have been much, much more helpful to anyone seriously wanting alternatives. This is nothing more than a 1hr google search in blog form.

  • http://pixellava.com Ame Stanko

    This list is a great resource even without any evaluation or ranking. Thanks so much for pulling it together! I’m looking forward to checking them all out. I’m currently using LiteCMS and I love it. It’s robust enough for me to play with (I’m using quite a bit of jquery) but the interface is simple enough for someone with only rudimentary web skills to maintain (many of my clients). Plus they have a great reseller program.

    Also on the missing list: Telerik’s Sitefinity. It’s hard to find quality CMS’s based in .Net – Sitefinity is definitely one of them, though. As a bonus, all of the Telerik Web controls come bundled.

    Can Joomla be seen as an alternative to WordPress? Can a Hummer be seen as an alternative to a Volkswagen Beetle? Good questions! For those who are seriously interested in CMS comparisons, I suggest a visit to http://www.cmsmatrix.org or php.opensourcecms.com , where you can find not only 50, but hundreds of tools, with detailed comparisons and user reviews. The humanity will not die from a lack of CMS, but rather from an overload… One fact is sure: WordPress is a clear leader, as you can see here w3techs.com/technologies/overview/content_management/all

  • http://www.lukejones.me/ Luke Jones

    @ Lin En : To see WordPress as a blogging tool only is a commonplace mistake. It’s quite easy: 1) to close the comments and/or even to do without posts 2) to create a static front page, http://codex.wordpress.org/Creating_a_Static_Front_Page
    I first spent a lot of time with many low end WP “alternatives”, then I started to really learn how to use WP, which turned out to be much more productive.

    Every CMS should do its job. And for the convenience and simplicity for the clients you should definitely try ImpressPages CMS (www.impresspages.org). It’s an open source drag&drop and in-place editing CMS.

    For designers only HTML/CSS is required to make unique and marvelous websites.

    I like Joomla.

    It does have a steep learning curve but it is well supported by many developers around the world. You can do pretty much everything with this CMS.

    Joomla has a lot of functionality already build in, including SEO friendly URLs, advanced caching etc.

    In addition there are thousands of modules, components and plugins available to extend the basic functionality.

    Hey there! I realize this is sort of off-topic but
    I needed to ask. Does operating a well-established website such as yours require a
    lot of work? I am brand new to running a blog however I do write in my diary
    everyday. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!
