What is the Best Content Management System?

P: n/a
There are a few in Perl and PHP, with MySQL or without and either in
Mod_Perl or not in.

I have heard mason, but it does not have any demo site, but claims, AMAZON
is using it.

I also like PostNuke, but then there is a sister product caled PHPNuke

I am looking for something simple but with a lot of plug-ins. I will not use
many features, but like to have BBS/Forum and Classified Ads. I want it
simple, because I need to rewrite a lot of codes to include my current Perl
program.

What is my best choice?

Well, if you want to include a current program, PHPNuke only requires you to
make a directory with the program, and the program can handle itself from
there. You will only need to cdo a few things under the Administration panel
to get it to work . It also has forums...dunno about classified ads though.
PHPNuke is decent, but you can usually ID when a site is using it because
they tend to look fairly similar. There may be better systems on the web,
but if you just want it to link to include your program(unless you want it
embedded in the main page or anything) it's pretty good about that.

Take a look at Bricolage. It's in Perl and uses PostgreSQL to store its
data. It's free and open source, of course;

is using it.
HTML::Mason is _not_ a CMS. You can check Mason's homepage for links to
sites that are running HTML::Mason;

<http://www.masonhq.com/>

You'll have to figure out yourself, I guess. There have been mentioned a
few already, and I can add this one:

<http://www.drupal.org/>

Never used it, though, but it looks slick.

go to http://opensourcecms.com/

They have over 40 PHP systems installed that you can have a look at,
including full admin access.

From the info in your post you should definitely have a look at Mambo

I prefer http://www.contenido.de/

This CMS has been developed by professionals and the company later
decided that it might be a good idea to give away this product for free.

Sadly, there is no english version nor english documentation for that
system. As far as I know there is also no i18n support in the code...

That's not correct. Contenido's base language is english since middle
of the year; also the whole docs are currently being rewritten.

Try http://freshmeat.net/projects/conten...861%2C860%2C90

I use PostNuke at www.xboxaddicts.co.uk since it has a good ongoing
community.
PHPNuke has slightly more modules but requires you to keep their copyright
details on your site.

Some others are:
