    Expression Engine
    Any opinions out there on Expression Engine as a content management system? We have built our main site (www.easy-fundraising-ideas.com) with it. It works well for some things but has its shortcomings. Experimenting with WordPress right now.

    But would love to hear what you all have to say.

    I love it, what problems are you having?

    I use it for www.cellrants.com

    I think WordPress has a lot less to offer than EE. But then again the EE Core lacks a lot.

    I found the templating system to be more confusing than wordpress- what other benefits are there to EE that you prefer? Security thing as well?

    I don't do the actual coding or design for my websites so I will give you the layman's answers to the above questions.

    My staff tells me that Expression Engine is terrific once you have built your templates but original design is cumbersome.

    We are looking at`WordPress because of the nature of the sites we are building right now. They are very database intensive with lots of data being imported on a regular basis.

    I don't like wordpress because everyone has it, and I don't want my sites known as another wordpress site.

    The templates are a bit harder but the EE templates allow for so much more IMO

    I like the security of EE also. I also find it faster than wordpress in page loads but that might just be me
