Any tips? inputs? experiences?
What I have:
* Apache web-server
* Windows box
* MSSQL (I would like to avoid using MySQL or anything else, since I know MSSQL and that is what I use for work)
* ColdFusion 6.1 (might move to BlueDragon 6.2.1 later)
* PHP 4.x
* no cash for this (it needs to be an open source one)
What I want:
* Good, full-featured, easy-to-use and customize CMS
* Perferably multi-lingual content
* RSS etc
It seems like there are no s/w that fits the bill. I have experimented a bit with one called typo3, but I have had some problems getting it up and running fine (may be too complex for me as well).
Seems like I would have to:
a) Move my databases to MySQL (might do that, but only after I have bought a new machine)
Upgrade to CFMX7, then I can use the open source FarCry CMS (upgrade is fairly costly)
c) Write my own in CFML (this might actually be the hottest option so far...)

Mambo is a little bit overstuffed and complex, especially on the styling/css side. DotClear is more easyly stylable, and adaptable, the php code is (in my opinion) more legible.
MODx is great for a complex content portal (multiadmin, mutli redactors), offers numerous plugins and a good developpers forum.
A nice ressource to compare CMS :
(I'm using SPIP too, for a content publishing site, but it's less known).

almost all those that you guys list only support/require MySQL, which I am not too keen on... Actually the hottest option might be to continue using what I currently have, which is FarCry 3 (a bit outdated)
Oops I didn't even notice you put MSSQL instead of MySQL Hmm, I will have to do some reasearch on that.
