    Hi there,

    We're developing a site that's going to be somewhat similar in structure to bettingpro.com.
    There's going to be a high amount of content published daily and lots of dynamic categorising, tagging, news feeds done with php.
    I'm comfortable with WordPress and Concrete5. Concrete5 I know would work for many things, but feel it might be too clunky and inefficient to manage mass content production, sorting, filtering etc (though I'd gladly be wrong).

    I feel like WordPress could definitely do it too, and I may end up going with that. I've heard Drupal being recommended for this project from a few people, but am not really familiar with it.

    Any suggestions much appreciated

    Drupal has a very steep learning curve - I've tried it and gave up due to not having the time to learn it properly and still keep my business going.

    Joomla seems to be a more accessible compromise between WP and Drupal - I've never tried Concrete 5.

    From looking at the code for bettingpro.com I think it has been custom coded - there's a custom javascript file (main.js) which looks like it controls most of the site-specific dynamic interaction - you'll have to work to make any open-source framework perform that way.

    That said, depending on the exact requirements, you may find WordPress adequate for your needs. There is a huge community for support, and lots of plugins, both free and purchased. The downside is that you really have to harden it up security-wise from the get-go and keep it up as you move forward. That means a lot more than just installing a security plugin, but it can be done, and there are a few really good guides online about how to do it.

    Keep us posted on your decision - I'll be very interested to see the site when it's done.

    I would think between the two wp and concrete5; concrete5 would manage mass content production better than wordpress. However Drupal would be best, yet most difficult to learn.
