A list: WordPress alternatives for news

This morning we’ve been learning a lot about CMS. Paul Bradshaw, with the help of a few friends, came up with a list of alternatives to WordPress that might be of interest to people thinking of running a news-based site.

Quickly, then, here’s the list:-

Drupal, with Open Publish

Epression engine


Ellington CMS

Thanks to @jarchowk, @shuckle, @mohamed, @adrianshort and @mikeverbruggen, as well as, of course, @paulbradshaw for their help.

I’ve also found a list of general CMS options (which includes some of the above) that might be useful.

I’m going to have a look at these properly and see what I think of the different options and, hopefully, blog on them in the future. But I’d be interested to see what other people think.
