(You): What are some popular alternatives to Drupal?
(Arnold): lol, Joomla is popular and WordPress
(Arnold): are you looking for a CMS ..content management system?
(Jason): Joomla seems to be a popular alternative, although it suits itself better to news-based websites. If you’re willing to give up a bit of control, WordPress is a great CMS, and it’s definitely not for just blogs anymore.
(You): thanks. This will primarily be a shopping site where merchants put up what they’re selling, whether it’s in stock, colors, pricing, etc. The browser will then be able to look over the merchants’ inventories.
