Brief history: I'm employed as a designer and work alongside a team of developers - therefore I have little to do with the clever backend stuff! We have developed our on CMS in .NET and I design and implement my HTML around the framework. I freelance in my own time, predominantly for print but I have had a few small websites to do which I generally handle in HTML. I'm good with CSS, XHTML and have started looking at PHP for simple server side includes. The Question: I would like to invest some time into learning more about CMS based stuff that I can produce myself for my own website and any freelance projects that crop up. I’ve noticed Wordpress crops up here again and again I’m also very aware of Joomla being used a lot. I don’t think either of these things will benefit my current employer but will help me personally and will add to my skill set should I ever need to look for another job. I’m just after advice and opinions on which would be the most beneficial and most flexible to start looking at, what are the key differences and what appears to be becoming the industry standard?
