Just looking for advice and opinions – Comixpedia runs on Postnuke right now. Some stuff about it bugs me, but all and all the site has stayed up way more then it’s fallen over. If any of you have played around with content management type stuff like Postnuke (or any Nuke – there are a lot of forks) or Drupal or Joomla or whatever – tell me what you think, plus and minuses and kind of important – how much evidence is there of their ability to hold up under high traffic.
I tried out Drupal this weekend to see what it can do (it powers The Onion so in some configuration it can handle A LOT of traffic) but Drupal + Dreamhost hosting seems slow and since it’s a clean, empty install that’s worrying. (That’s up at altertainment.net if you want to see what Drupal looks like). If I could get Drupal to work well on a shared hosting plan that might be what Comixpedia migrates to this year but it takes me a long time to decide on big changes like that.
