    Hello !

    I am interested in using a CMS for a Blog, and would like to have control to be able to do custom tweaks.

    Both WordPress and Joomla has come to mind, but am not sure which I should choose. You see, I am wanting to have an Custom Gallery Page, Directory List Page and Forums, including a Blogs Page.

    With this being said, I really would rather use my somewhat PHP know how and avoid Extensions, Plugins and the like. So I guess what I am asking is this, which of the two would allow me to Tweak, Customize and add my own PHP Code within the CMS?

    For the Blog, I would just use the Default's. But for all other pages, custom. Is this a reality?

    Also, I have thought about just creating a Dynamic Website, and then adding a Blog to it. Any suggestions?

    Feedback is Welcome! And if you know of a better CMS not mentioned that may be better for what I want to do, please let me know.

    Thank you

    Create the dynamic site, then use Wordpress or Joomla to do the heavy lifting for you on the forum and blog page. If you want to hard code the PHP for each, that is your decision. It is possible to do a little tweaking in Wordpress, however, it is very template oriented. Lots of defaults and plugins.

    If you try to put in some html code that you want people to see (such as in a <code> or <pre> tag) getsimple goes in and deletes it or ignores it
