    Apart from Joomla and Drupal, there many but probably less well known OPEN SOURCE CMS that are good, robust, stable & that have many modules to extend usability & good & active support forums. Good CMS like the 2 above can be used for just about anything, be it private sites, community websites, portals, corporate, small or big & busy sites, u name it.

    Here is a site listing a good number of them: Home - OpenSourceCMS

    I am currently trying out e107. Does anyone have any hands on experience with it?

    Anyone using any good CMS that you can recommend?

    e107 is a great CMS. I like it alot although there are not very many skins for it and its smaller then say php-nuke (another great CMS)

    MODx is awesome. It is very extendable and has very active forums. It has a skins and mods database of a reasonable size.

    It is also regarded as one of the most secure cms systems out there.

    CMS Made Simple - Welcome to CMS Made Simple

    I can advertise it till death (and i will), because it's simple and has enough modules (And one of few where you can use whatever code you want for menu *sigh*) (Yes, i've had a lot of problems with menu's in cms...)

    E107 is great, i use it a lot and have done since the early days of it.
    It has not alot of themes, but a great theme master is akirapowered.com the are teh sex lol. but yea i work with them they make some really good ones every so often.
    I use e107 often cause of its flexibility.
    Also if you need a hand give us a shout.

    It's good to get such a good response on various CMS. :)
    I hope it helps in making informed decisions when it comes to selecting one. I am personally over the next couple of months going to test several of them.
    Thanks for the information on e107 and the link to a themes site, which I intend to visit as the one's in the package where not too pleasing :p.
    I hope I also find some more options for a recipe module (enabling users to share food recipes), that one I found which looked a bit too spartan, at list compared to the one for Drupal or Joomla (though I have failed to install one myself, unless someone i another Joomla-related thread has helped explain how to, after I explained where I got stuck).
