Newbie here. :-)
I have spent several months looking at a heap of different CMSs and had just about made my mind up to go with two: CMS Made Simple (www.cmsmadesimple.org) for simple websites (because of ease of use) and Joomla for more complex ones. And then I came across SilverStripe.
It looked very, very interesting so I downloaded and installed it. When I logged in I thought, well, it looked kind of sparse. But looking at some of the sites built with SilverStripe it looks like it can do some very impressive things.
So I'm guessing I'm probably missing something and that there is some functionality I'm not aware of. Can anyone perhaps tell me how SilverStripe compares with other CMSs in terms of functionality, ease-of-use, etc.?
Also, are there any plans to add PayPal support to the ecommerce module?
Please note that I'm not trying to start a flame war or anything like that. My questions are genuine. I really want to know if I should be looking at SilverStripe instead of other CMSs, especially the two I originally decided to go with.
To give you a little bit of background, I am mainly a Delphi programmer developing Windows applications. I have built a few websites using HTML, CSS, ISAPI, IntraWeb etc. I don't have any experience with PHP but I'm planning to learn it as I have seen a lot of impressive websites that have been built with it.
Thanks in advance for your responses.
