    Hey guys, im currently developing an online magazine / news site.. i started out with a customised version of wordpress but have found that its nowhere near as functional as i need. I'm not that keen on custom code as im sure there is some good off the shelf software i havent yet found out there!!

    Has anyone here had any experiance with this kind of thing?

    Thanks in advance :)

    I am working on a web site which uses PHP-Nuke, but it has been since it started in 2002. I wouldn't recommend it.

    I would love to know if there is anything good for me to upgrade to?

    I was toying with the idea or building a bespoke system, but I why do that when someone has already done it for you?

    i like using
    its very functional, well supported and there is plugin upgradability.
    i use it for my news section but it can do so much more, very stable too.

    What sort of functions does it not serve? Wordpress is very powerful as the 9Rules Network demonstrates. And I think their customization is not as heavy as some think.
