  • best php-based cms/tech choice
    Beside Symfony there is Laravel Framework , I will not go into deep difference between this frameworks as it really is just taste of what your team likes more (active record vs datamapper, facade/helpers vs dependency injection, blade vs twig, ...), as already mention above this kind of CMS make sense if Website is just one part of your application and you have to build more then just a simple digital business... - Source: Reddit / 3 months ago
  • Look for direction, wanting to make websites for clients.
    How comfortable are you with learning PHP? WordPress is the obvious choice due to it's popularity (but with it moving towards a full-site editing experience it isn't as fun to work with anymore IMO but that's just me).

Any idea if Statamic offers something similar... - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago

  • Ask HN: Your experience of using an alternative to WordPress?
    WordPress elicits strong opinions among developers. Whatever your thoughts about WordPress, it remains the leading website builder among the myriad site builders available. Uniquely (I think) it is the only self-hosting option which is relatively simple for non-technical users to install via one-click installers (available via hundreds of hosting companies).
