My friend was talking about MODX and how it addresses security holes. I think the wordpress documentation sux and is very general in its approach.. You can find little real examples that work. They use things like $x = foo; print foo; very few real world examples. I’ve started using drupal and its documentation is better. All in all, all of this CMS use php with variations of javascript and html. If you really want the power at your finger tips then sometimes you must re-invent the wheel when it is necessary. CMS can be great but they leave security holes and bloat out your website. I find it easier to start from a CMS I created awhile ago and just add on to it. Where I worked before the CMS was created from scratch and then reused for different projects. There was no need to worry about how to write plugins or short codes. Which are great but not always needed and they make your sites bloated. You should never just use one programming language.. There are many great languages perl,python,ruby, java, c++,C.. WIth these CMS like wordpress people tend to stick with PHP and wordpress plugins. There can be solutions from perl or python.. Which are sometimes better depending upon the problem… DJANGO and ruby on rails can be great too and offer different solutions for web applications. WordPress is cool and all but I think its bloated out full of security holes.
