When you are creating a website and you do not want to do any coding by hand, which content management system do you prefer to you? I like Joomla or XOOPS for my sites. They both have lots of plugins and a user system. It may take a bit of learning but I think it's worth it. XOOPS has a whole ton of modules to choose from and people keep making more.

There is no 'best' Content Management System. It's all down to personal preference. For example; excluding forum software the only cms I would use is Wordpress. This is not to say that Wordpress is the only good one, it's just that I've been using Wordpress for a long time and have grown comfortable with using it. However, another factor is the type of site you are creating. If I was creating a host I probably would not use Wordpress, I am more likely to use TheHostingTool. So it's all down to opinion and type of site.

Yeah, I agree w/StevenF50. The "best" CMS is the one that you work best with, and fits your needs when you need it to. :) I'm not a strong coder, so I need something that I doesn't give me heart palpitations when things fall apart. Joomla kept me up at night, so I had to find something else. Wordpress fits the bill for me. Quick & easy, no muss, no fuss.

Joomla is brilliant for that i had it on my site and it worked like a treat no coding or effort and it was working amazing, i wouldn't say its the best one but its pretty good i would recommend it over any others you are thinking of.

You shouldn't ask for the best CMS and then switch to which one we prefer! Just kidding, but yes, most of the time it is up to your personal preference because most content management systems are robust and flexible enough to get the majority of the functionality you want in a site done. For custom solutions or functionality that you can't quite figure out or is not that often explored, you might want to search which systems are good for what you have in mind. In this case, you may want to consult a developer.

Personally, I prefer systems that have a large developer base, a good help center, and lots of custom plugins floating around. Joomla, Drupal, even Wordpress are my favorites. I tried a few Ruby on Rails-based CMS, but...Meh.
