Re: Create Portal (custom Cms Vs. Joomla/wordpress/drupal)
Wordpress is currently the most supported and widely used CMS out there. I don't personally believe that there is a one-size fits all CMS for any web-project. In some cases the extra expense of a custom CMS can be easily justified (a large-scale e-commerce website with multitudes of RSS feeds, cross-vendor integration, developer API's, etc...). On the other hand, John's computer emporium that gets about 10 hits a week would probably be well suited for Drupal.
The best thing to do is spend a reasonable amount of time scoping the project and determine which solution fits best.
