So, in an effort to replace the Zope/Plone craziness of kzsc.org, I’ve been looking into CMS alternatives. I know – exciting, right? It’s been a whole lot of uploading files, changing permissions and using the wonderful new tabbed terminal in Leopard. I’ve set up a few on this site so far, with only one looking like a real option. If anyone’s had any experience with any of these – let me know!
- WordPress – Blog-centric but easy to use
- Drupral – Crazy technical
- Expression Engine – Not very user friendly and a hell of a time to change skins
- Joomla – Good for non-blogs so far and very easily skinnable
- Plone – An actual up-to-date version that makes life better
So maybe WordPress for kzsc.org – it’s a whole lot easier than Plone, that’s for sure. But for this blog? WordPress all the way.
On another note – anyone have any strong opinions on the Academy of Art? Specifically the School of Computer Arts: New Media? Because that’s looking like a nice place to head next.
Oh god. Academy of Art.
There’s just so much I could say here about it.
If you can get through the program without having to talk to any of your fellow students, then go for it.
