Is PHP-Nuke Good Enough? Need Opinions

Hi All,

I want to have a news and product review website. I want an RSS feed, online forum, article submission section, and possibly down the road the ability to upload/download music to this website. I am thinking about using PHP-Nuke 8.0 since that is what I am familiar with. I know Joomla and Drupal are supposedly nice CMS as well. Is PHP-Nuke too much hassle due to what I have heard about it's security issues or is this issue exaggerated or over-blown when it comes to PHP-Nuke? Do any of you recommend or develop in PHP-Nuke? I am most familiar with PHP-Nuke as a CMS. Is it worth it if my options are limited, being as I do not have Joomla or Drupal as an immediate option. Some folks say it is simply too much headache or a security concern to use PHP-Nuke. Can I have your honest opinions if you were in my shoes and like me, you really wanted the PHP-Nuke CMS.

What to do? Thanks so much for your opinions.

I had a one month mission in a public administration that uses php-nuke. They needed new tailored modules to be integrated into the cms.

I can't remember what version of php-nuke it was but I can tell you this :

The code was so bad that each line of it can be reported at thedailywtf.com ! The developer didn't even know what OOP is because I've seen none in the cms core !

My advise : don't rely on it
