I need some advise on using SilverStripe. I am currently using Wordpress, and have setup a basic blog. I have heard that Silverstripe will give me more flexibility and control. Does anybody have any views on this and some possible suggestions on where to get started. I currently have a blog called [url=]Samsung Pink Camera[/url], which is in Wordpress, but I may want to convert to Silverstripe.

Many Thanks

As long as you know OO programming, good knowledge of PHP and read Ingo's book Silverstripe - you'll be away.

You can make up for not having the book (kinda) with the docs and forum. As a programmer I wouldn't go anywhere else for my CMS.
