Is anyone here using Wordpress as a cms for your main school website. I love using Wordpress but a few people have said it does not had all the features you would need. I completely disagree just curious to see what others think.
I have been playing with page line framework and i have found it very easy was able to make a functioning site.

My old school use to use it as a CMS it did everything we wanted it to and worked a treat. The school has since closed so,I can't show you. But this school uses it - Home | Kingsway Park High School
I also think the edugeek moola package is going into a Wordpress package instead.

Made an edit to my last post
Thanks im quite happy with it for my first wordpress site.
Our schools website is done via wordpress;
St. Matthew's Primary School, Luton
The long blog-like list on the main page is one of many things I don't really like tbh, but it's all run by the ICT Co-ord as I really don't have time to run it myself!

I don't feel a debate is complete without an opposing opinion, this time for joomla... Please consider whilst passing judgement that this is still a prototype site.

Hi Rozzer, I use Wordpress as a CMS for our school site. The great thing about it is if there is a feature missing, there is more than likely a plugin for it.
Bookings | Zingiri (parents evenings) & WordPress › The Events Calendar « WordPress Plugins keep the boss happy, really recommend these!
The only thing that really bugs me is our County hosts are shocking, no mod_rewrite or anything you'd expect from a basic web hosting company. I use the index.php/link trick to get around it, but still 'cmon! Though we'd have this issue with any modern CMS. I find I have to use a lot of workarounds if experimenting with plugins.
I think it's also very easy to get to grips with if you're not the only one updating it.
Also a big fan of this as a starting point for any wordpress project - HTML5 Reset :: A simple set of templates for any project
Its a really nice layout!
EDIT: Nevermind found it. It's the paradise wordpress theme.
