  • Nice and very informative post.

    As a WordPress user from the beginning using WordPress has always given me the best results and is also very easy to manage . It has great features which gives the user the type of independence to customize and manage his website in the way he wants. After reading this post I think I should also give a try to Drupal.

    For choosing the best CMS I guess one should look upon the flexibility and features the system is providing for the end user.

    Thank you for sharing.
