"I would be curious to know how c5 is now to you. I am a long-time Joomla user and develop websites with it. Joomla 3 is in beta right now and looks promising. I agree with you about the articles instead of pages - I get around that…"
"I really like the plugins/themes and support you can get from here:
We subscribe to the service. They always keep the plugins compatible with the latest version of WP, so it's peace of mind knowing the…"
"honestly you could port a (not that big..) site over in a hour - I have done this multiple times now
It really is easy to use and the templating is sooo easy - you'll be able to re-use your existing joomla templates (the source php…"
I must admit I have been interested in concrete5. It just seems like a lot of work to switch over. I have been using Joomla since it split from Mambo.
I guess it is the fear of learning something new and…"
"For myself, it's just that I have moved away from joomla in favour of other opensource options. Specifically concrete5 (www.concrete5.org) - its just so much easier to template/develop/roll out/train people to use.
I did have a support call…"

"I would support using LinkedIn for this group (and have confirmed that I am a member over there). Generally I follow highered topics/people on twitter, but long-range/complicated discussions are impossible on that platform. A combo of…"
"Emergency Alerts for OU Campus allows you to communicate with students, staff, and the community with custom website announcements. When time matters most, make sure your website is the go-to place for info."
"This is the first time I have been here in a long time. Selfishly, I would hope that you would be able to continue the site, but I understand realities. As I re-acquaint myself, I'm seeing a lot of value in what you have tirelessly built.…"
"Hi Mark, in line with many others who have posted, first a big thank you for providing this resource for so many years. I was a keen reader of it and occasional poster a good few years ago. And I loved my Website Hero mug until I dropped it and had…"
"I was a recent addition and did not find too much activity here that I could leverage but LinkedIn does seem to be the logical destination. Perhaps there is interest here and you can crowd source the migration. Migrating the content could…"
"I would be very sorry to see this resource go. I am just a one person shop at my college and feel quite a alone as far as anyone understanding the complexity of what I do. It's a wonderful thing to see people facing the same challenges I face…"

But, as many people have said today, I haven't visited in a while. I think that's…"
"Regardless of where this goes, Mark, thanks for setting it up and running it all these years!
I find it quite useful myself, lurking mostly, but occasionally joining in where it might help us, or I might be able to provide value. I like having this…"
