Web Frameworks

If you're serious about building a website designed to grow for the long-term, the best way to go is with a content management system. With so many out there, however, it can be difficult to distinguish the wheat from the chaff. While it may be certainly fine to go with something popular like WordPress or Joomla, we recommend going with a real framework that gives you much more flexibility, security, and specificity for the long-term.

Many out-of-the box systems can be more vulnerable to malware attacks, and can often include components that you don't need or want clogging up your interface. On top of that, choosing third-party plugins can open the door to bugs and update problems. Although we have worked with most major systems and can certainly help you with any of your choosing, we've found the two frameworks below offer the best solution for the webmaster serious about his site's longevity.
