Why do I prefer Silverstripe?
For me, using Silverstripe is a no brainer. From my clients perspective it is easy to use, the interface is clean and logical. When you open the CMS up, you can see where you need to go to edit your pages and other details. Many other CMS's like Drupal and Joomla seem to have many menus with many submenus and it can make it difficult to find where you need to be. If I find it hard to remember where I am supposed to go, I figure my clients must find it harder. After all, I spend all day every day building websites!
From a developers perspective, Silverstripe is well put together and clean. It is designed to be extended by developers and it is easy to do so. Using Silverstripe I have developed a complete online booking system for a dance studio. Silverstripe's ease of development means I can incorporate anything my clients need whether it be event calendars, galleries or videos, Silverstripe can be made to measure!
