    Hi jskibinska,

    It's easier if you tell us what your anticipated needs/features are.  I tend to think that PHP Nuke is overkill for most people and blog software such as WordPress fulfills most of the same needs and is a lot simpler to maintain.

    I need couple of 'blocks " on the write : Publishers, Essays, Books, Gallery..on the home page i nee
    some intro and maybe and some the  essays  section i need to Dsiplay those essays.

    Of course I need forum, polls and i don't think  php nuke is an overkill (I am IT person  anyway)

    Maybe  PHP Fusion would be better ?

    Okay, just checking.

    or Joomla, or Pligg, or GeekLog or any of the PHP open source CMS systems.  All of them work the same way as PHP Nuke and PHP Fusion.

    The biggest difference between them is the contributions of the user community for each one.

    So what would you recomend. Joomla seems much better documented.

    At the moment I think Joomla has the larger user base and thus more documentation and add-ons.  PHP Nuke has been around longer and has a pretty sizable community too.
