WordPress is the king... it has the most plugins and the most dev force behind it. Sometimes it can be clunky but you won't find a more capable system

about WordPress and Contao Aug 2012

It's a blog gone CMS, and it shows. Not from a user's POV, but from a developer's it's kind of messy to implement a design I have to say. Tried Contao and I haven't looked back ever since.

Positive Comment by Mighty_Mac
about WordPress May 2012

It's free, and the best CMS (site management controller). Not as customizable as drupal, but unlike drupal, I have not had a single problem. All the plugins install and uninstall smoothly without currupting everything. Simple yet complex. Very stable, and endless support. Thousands of themes to choose from.

I had a custom, ad-hoc blogging software that I had coded and designed for my own needs, but I just couldn't compete with the competent team of developers that is behind Wordpress. I switched to it eight months ago and never looked back.
