 So I'll be operating one or two small-ish sites using CMS systems, and have been considering ocPortal. The other big option is PostNuke.

I've been looking at these options because not everybody who will be operating the sites will be tech-savvy. As such, the WYSIWYG page editors will be a godsend. (If anyone knows of any other WYSIWYG/easy-to-edit CMS systems that I should compare with, let me know.)

But I'm a little stuck. Both ocPortal and PostNuke seem pretty good, with good support communities. So I pose the following questions to those of you who have knowledge of both:

What does ocPortal offer that PostNuke does not?  (And if they both do something, what does ocPortal do better?)

What does PostNuke offer that ocPortal does not?
  (And if they both do something, what does PostNuke do better?)

Other general comments (which is faster, which is easier to install modules on, etc.)?

Please answer honestly. As was said in another thread, ocPortal tries to be good for everyone, so there are certainly thingss that are done better elsewhere. Even if it's something that ocPortal is working on, and just hasn't figured out how to do yet, let me know.

Thanks to all who respond,

I have used both and ocPortal in my opinion is more customiziable and integrates with several forums that post nuke does not.

Its been a while since I used post nuke so thats all I can remember. I will test it here in a little bit and see what more I can say.

I run and am hopping to make themes and other things for ocportal even though I no longer use it for I still love it and feel it could go far with the right help. It needs themes and needs people to advertise for it.
