    Although I've heard a lot of great things about Joomla and WP, are there any other blogging platforms making waves these days?

      My friend Qasim Virjee actually blogged about this - here's some of what he had to say

      * Web Media Explorer - When content repository meets media blog; a fresh approach to content management and web publishing where hard disk storage is crawled for content and organised through posts, galleries and RSS feeds automatically!
      * Gekko - a simple CMS that features a stripped-down interface (including cool things like instant visual module re-ordering) with all the basic community bells and whistles - ie. comments, guestbook, profiles etc. Unfortunately the project's in Spanish.
      * Typo 3 - Asides from Drupal and Joomla, Typo3 is probably the third most used Open Source CMS. The project's been developing steadily since I last paid them a visit - they've got a new BETA as of last week and some cool features like Inline Relational Record Editing...

      for the whole post, click here Alternatives to Joomla?

        An update on CMS options...

        Hey guys,

        Melissa, thanks for referencing that old post I did regarding alternatives to Joomla. Since it was published, we've put a lot of weight behind Drupal but its learning curve is quite steep so for some folks who aren't too tech savvy or otherwise want to start a blog but have a couple nice features Wordpress may not be able to provide easily, I'd recommend the following:

        * Posterous (info: The state of the Web and why we *love* Posterous | designguru )
        * Indexhibit (info: When a CMS is overkill | designguru )

          Thanks Qasim!

          I googled Alternatives Blog Joomla and was so delighted to see you as one of the top blogs! Thanks for posting on our forum, always great to have gurus like yourself in the community

              Gekko sounds pretty sweet, I'll probably give it a test run with one of my start-ups.
