Mambo CMC vs XOOPS

Hello,

What do you think about Mambo and XOOPS CMS . I'm thinking of using one
of those two. I know that XOOPS is programed using Object oriented
programing, which is a benefit.
I'm not interested in speed or HTML coding standard. I just need good,
full of features (modules) administration part. Which of these two CMS's
has bigger community, which one is coded better and which one has better
future.

If you know some other CMS that have featrues like XOOPS or Mambo,
please suggest it.

I can answer the last question by pointing you at www.opensourcecms.com,
which has loads of PHP/MySQL Open Source CMS systems for you to have a look
at. You can edit the stuff in the database in the admin area and see what
affect it has on the frontend.

You are operating under an enormous misconception. Just because something is
programmed using Object Oriented techniques does not make it "better". It is
possible to follow the OO paradigm and still produce a piece of crap just as
it is possible to follow the procedural paradigm and produce a work of art.

Yeah, but it's still more likely to have crap if OOP is not used. Well thought
out OOP is fine. However you didn't reply at all to his question. (:

XOOPS is quite nice if you've got a use for the commenting etc. modules it got,
however new modules end up non-OO aswell. (The display things for the end-user
are no classes but `simple' scripts which call the OO functions.) Remember that
it's not a CMS, but a portal system. XOOPS hasn't got much features in regard
to this regard.
Mambo I don't know at all, sorry.

Bye,
phil

I disagree. Whether or not a program is crap depends entirely on the
programmer, not the paradigm. Using OO techniques does not guarantee
success, nor does it increase the likelihood of success. In my long career I
have seen procedural programs which are excellent and OO programs which are
excrement.

You only thing that you can guarantee is that a second-rate programmer will
always produce second-rate programs regardless of the paradigm.

Hi Khan,

Seems like there is no one answering your questions. Let me suggest
Mambo Open Source. It has the most helpful community around, just port
a question in their forum (http://forum.mamboserver.com) you'll be
likely getting answers and help within hours.

Xoops is built as a portal. Mambo Open Source is not. It has no
commenting system (but there's a hack to achieve this). Mambo Open
Source is more of a real content management system. The templating
system allow you to create a Mambo website without the usual left
right center layout. They are built with simplicity and normal user
in mind. You don't really need any HTML knowledge to run a MOS
website.

There is a lot of exciting features coming in for future version,
MOS 5.0 ( currently version 4.5).

To learn more about Mambo Open Source, please visit these websites:
