    "which is the best" ..... They're ALL bad at doing this: reading your mind and doing whatever you want without you having to specify anything.

    mcse, I think we need more information --- OSCommerce is more of an online-shop, do you want that? What do you expect from a CMS? What do you have to offer in terms of hardware, software, knowledge?

    You should know we can't read your mind, give us some specifics and then we can help you look further :)))

    I don't think there is a one size fits all 'best'. In any given situation there are probably one or two that may come close to satisfying specific requirements, try completing the CMS matrix here and see what comes out....

    You can manage your content without having to use web-designer tools (or notepad). You just work on the content (i.e. texts, images, files, whatever), the "CMS" will then integrate all of this into one website matching the templates you use.

    Take a look at:
    etc. (these are just 2 examples of the 72992 CMS systems available, some expensive, some cheap, most use databases)
