The long term goal is to provide the technical tools to facilitate active, confederal, and directly democratic social change networks.” more Â» https://we.riseup.net/crabgrass/about why they use it Home Page: http://www.WordPress.com But links into http://www.drupal.org/ the demo link on the site led to Drupal. LOL We were h4x0red by Drupalz!!! Is there anyone who knows how they chose the categories? I don’t know packtpub but their “Vote for” page is surely a model of what not to do. I didn’t even spot where you’re supposed to actually vote for something. The voting page is awful, the demo link leads to wrong CMS, and the category.. WTH? I don’t see how WordPress could lose in a contest like this! Err.. I tried but the site gives DB error in return! I love WordPress! However, trying to actually find the voting booth was hard in this scenario. I finally found it. It’s in the top right section of the page. They certainly have my “email” I mean vote for WordPress. I also saw a wonderful short “optional” survey for a chance to win a “free Ipod Nano”. Sure why not.

The two products are designed for totally different markets/purposes IMHO: WordPress for blogging/content management and Moodle for managing online courses. The products are two of the best I have ever used–now I can’t vote for either. Comments are closed.
