    Website Content Management Systems

    I'm looking for a new CMS for our public-facing school website, which is nothing to do with the VLE / Parent Portal / Learning Platform.

    I know there is Joomla but can anyone recommend the best business-grade CMS, ideally based on .Net rather than PHP? We are looking to be able to delegate to HODs but retain editorial control and to customise widely.

    Dot Net Based CMS

    The 2 .net based CMS systems that I would recommend would either be:

    Dot Net Nuke or possibly SharePoint, depending on requirements & licensing. Either would allow you to delegate responsibilities to other members of staff whilst allowing you to maintain overall control of branding & site management.

    Just out of interest, what's wrong with Joomla?

    Interested because that's what we decided to go with

    .Net rather than PHP
    Personally I find Joomla is overkill for a school website. Not to mention rather clunky and bloated.

    I've heard of Dotnetnuke I imagine got the idea from phpnuke, but never used it myself so I can't offer anything more than a name and link
