Choice CMS

Hi,

I have seen on Internet comparisons between different Cms.
But it is always the provided functionnalities and the ease to manage content that is compared.

What about the web design ??

I want to use a CMS mainly to get a nice design in a fast way.

I looked into some CMS and I've seen Drupal, Joomla, Typo3, ...

But I can't make a choice because I have no information about the designs provided etctera.

Thank u for any tips !!

I use TYPO3 a lot. For me it is the only CMS that is truly without limits. This means whatever complex configuration I need from multi-lingual to static pages..

However, your question about CMS's and the design.

Strictly the design is outside the scope of CMS's.

The way I work is this.

1) Me or someone else proiduces a visual mock-up of a website design.
2) I then build that design into an HTML/CSS design that runs locally on my machine.
3) I then tell my CMS to use this file as a template and the cms simply replaces the dynamic parts with the database driven content.

So the CMS cannot replace your graphic web design needs - this still remains your creative job.

However, there are so many excellent OpenSource template websites that you simply find one you like and tell your CMS to use that template.

Is it legal to import an OpenSource Template into my web application for commercial use ?

Generally the OpenSource templates are free and able to be used in commercial projects BUT you need to check because there are various OpenSource licenses. The easiest thing is if you find a good template read the small print that comes with it.
