    I use wordpress to build my blogs (zencollegelife.com, unassociated-press.com etc.). I was just wondering if there are any other 'scripts' or 'webapps' or whatever these types of things are called for other types of sites, like online seller sites or things like that. I know of phpBB for forums, but other than this I'm pretty much lost.

    any info would be really helpful. Thanks in advance, OT!

    lol he said he wanted something to sell stuff online...and the link you JUST posted says:

    "Joomla has Virtuemart and an integration of OSCommerce, both of which beat Drupal's ecommerce addon. Use OSCommerce if you need multicurrency options or if you have a payment gateway not supported by VM"

    Ubercart is pretty good though, I heard.

    and RE: "Joomla is garbage".. that depends 100% on what you want to do with your CMS..and there's a million different things you can do

    I take it you haven't done research so you don't know shit about this subject.

    Ubercart (drupal module) is probably one of the best versatile, customizable, and themeable carts I know of. Much better than the garbage Joomla has and will ever offer. And it's an integration even. Probably another addon you have to pay for. :rolleyes:

    I've used both. Joomla is a piece of steaming shit. I wouldn't even compare it to the beast known as Drupal.

    woah kingtoad, chill. there's no debate going on here so put your fucking knife down lol

    Joomla hasn't worked for what you wanted, fine I get it. that's ok. it works great for me, though.

    And I said I thought ubercart was good... :hsugh:

    I pretty much agree but I don't want to be as mean about it. lol

    I've used drupal and ubercart on several sites with great success. I've had no issues with portability that I experienced when doing the same thing with joomla and virtuemart from plesk to cpanel for instance, but I guess if you're familiar with joomla and are happy with it and want me to set your shit up on it, then I wouldn't mind being paid to do so, however I would never use it for personal use on similar projects, and I haven't.

    he must have misunderstood me when I said:
    I was just merely pointing out that here was someone who didn't really know where to start, and the link kingtoad had given the OP seemingly, at first glance, contradicted what kingtoad said about recommending drupal over joomla. I wasnt saying "OMG IT PROVES YOUR WRONG IM SO 1337!!"

    so everyone chill. i like drupal. i love it. it makes me wet

    I hate Joomla and it sucks to see people recommend it over Drupal. I think Drupal is better than Joomla in every way possible. Except maybe... ease of use or something. :hsughno:

    Well that's exactly it. My very first CMS was Joomla and I picked it up in no time at all. We're using Drupal at my work and it's pretty easy, but I think I might have had trouble if it had been my first. Drupal def. has some big advantages though

    The people who could best use Drupal pretty much already know about it and Plone, which is the only real competitor to Drupal. Joomla is far superior for banging out a site on the quick when you don't have much ability in customizing shit, though, which it certainly sounds like is the case for the thread starter.
