A New Project That Will Keep Me Busy

Content Management SystemI am really excited about this new project that we’re working on. I don’t want to say too much, but I know you will love it once it goes “live”. Before the design process gets started, I need to figure out the website architecture and what solution to use. That’s where you all come in ;)

We’re looking for advice and suggestions in terms of the sites architecture and the backend setup. Basically what we’re looking at is a multi site network with many domains linked together. Each domain will have it’s own theme/layout but all articles and content should be able easy accessible from other sites/domains.

We need a solid (open source or commerical) CMS that runs all sites from the same backend configuration and all the content should be stored in the same database. We need to figure out what CMS we should use, what database setup and what kind of hosting we need.

If anyone has any valuable information or great ideas, please let me know. We’re currently looking at commercial and open source solutions so all suggestions are welcome.

Thanks guys, have a fantastic week!

    I use wordpress for my site but I doubt that’s what you’re looking for when we’re talking about a +100 site network.

    I have heard a lot of good things about Drupal but I’m not sure how it works as a multi-site solution.

    Good luck dude!

    I think Drupal has the best open source multi site solution at the moment.
