    What do you recommend besides Wordpress and related software? It can be a solution with a monthly cost.

    I like opencart for a lightweight free shopping cart solution.
    Also - Drupal for a slightly more heavyweight cms than wordpress.

    There's two. There are loads including Joomla, Magento etc. Magento is more heavyweight than opencart.

    There's no such thing as the best CMS, it's just whichever can handle your type of project and you personally are comfortable using. Maybe with a bit more info about what you need it to do we can suggest something.

    You are right, there is no such thing as the best CMS.

    I'm looking for a solution that will provide a client with the ability to manage content, and add pages and not have the Wordpress blog look.

    I looked into http://expressionengine.com but they hit you with an update/upgrade fee. Not sure yet how often. I'm waiting for a reply.

    I guess I should've asked what the most common and easy to use CMS besides Wordpress, Drupal and Joomla.

    So you have nothing against WordPress but you want it to not look like WordPress, got it

    I actually really like CMS Made Simple, as the name suggests it's nothing flashy but when all you want is an easy-to-update site I think it's great.

    Expression Engine tends to be the one I see being spouted everywhere but I was put off by the fee too so I've never really investigated it further, sorry I can't be more help on that one.

    phpFusion is very simple and light weight while also quite robust in features.

    If it has a "Wordpress" look and that's unwanted, then it's the designers fault. No CMS looks like anything except for the code you write...
    Harmonic and David DiGiovanni like this.

    I assumed he meant the backend, but if not then.....I repeat the above, for emphasis
