Hello Everybody,

I have been comparing different CMS' (again) in the last few days, to replace my Drupal site. It seems to me that SilverStripe is worth a try.

My "almost abandon" site is It is the site of my twins daughters. I built it on Drupal and the last time I updated it was about 9 months ago. I was stuck with quite a lot of things on Drupal which makes me decide to drop it. I have tried quite a lot of CMS before as I mentioned on, but not SIlverStripe.

My first worry of using SilverStripe is that it requires at least 48MB of PHP memory, while my site is at the moment on 16MB. My goal is to have a good CMS in term of performance, but needs quite less resources. But maybe I can make a trade off between the resource requirement and the maintainability of my site for the same performance level.

So do you think I can have the same look of a site as what I have now with SilverStripe, WITHOUT too much hacking?

Thanks a lot in advance.
