There are better CMSes coming out, this is showing its age, even w version 7.

Yeah I agree. I wish it wasn't so glitchy. 7 is more stable, but there isn't nearly as many modules for it, so I use 6. Problem is once 8 comes out, support will end with version 6. They need to stop making newer versions and focus on one.

Care to elaborate on the better CMS's?

Pimcore and so on. Drupal is like going back to web 2.0 or 2005-2008

Thanks! Two questions though...!

  1. "and so on", a couple of more wouldn't hurt..?
  2. ...and this is coming from? (a little bit of background always makes certain statements a little more trustworthy, what with all these not to be trusted cats on the interwebs, eh!)

Drupal 8 is a bit flakey still - so complex, so many dependencies. I have been a Drupal fan since version 4, but here looking for something else. Thing is - I want to use the Taxonomy features, pages and views that worked so well in 7. Don't want to start anything new ans get marooned in 7 with the only upgrade to an unstable, temperamental 8.
I'm spending so much time trying to get composer, sass, drush, drupal console and other stuff going - stuff I have lived without until now but Drupal 8 has made it hard to live without now - that I'm not actually achieving anything. It seems impossible to turn the cache off - so every change needs the cache to be cleared. Just so tedious.

Don't want to ditch it ... but there is always another problem with it. Now I have

Fatal error: Cannot declare class Drupal\Console\Composer\Plugin\ExtenderManager, because the name is already in use

and I'm still just trying to get the bloody console thing working in the vague hope that the cache can be turned off - that this method will work.

great CMS, but even better community, shows the power of collaboration and open source
Very focused on features and more on efficiency and security. Even the white house is using it ;)

it can take a long time to master, so..

Ahh yes, I remember those days.
