Second Place: CMS Made SimplePacktPub’s judges were obviously impressed with CMS Made Simple. The easy group management and group permission settings helped secure this particular CMS not only second place in this category but also second place in the Best PHP Based Open Source CMS category as well.
Third Place: ImpressCMS and MiaCMSOnce again, with the competition so strong this year, PacktPub’s judges had to give an award to two separate CMS’s. Both ImpressCMS and MiaCMS were granted third place in this year’s competition. Creating a website that is easy to build and maintain was never so easy. With great support and almost constant updating, these CMS options will both be ones to watch out for in the race for Overall Best CMS Winner.
