    Kind of wondering what people are doing on this front. There are advantages/disadvantages of using a built in CMS and using different software for a CMS.

    With a CMS (Xenforos or XenAdvanced) seemingly a ways off, what are you doing?

    I'm pretty invested in WordPress as my CMS and will probably stick with it unless Advanced or a future Xen product blows me away. I should have my WordPress template done either today or tomorrow :D

    I think I'll stick with WordPress as my CMS.

    Hopefully XenAdvanced is better than vBadvanced, as there are many more opportunities for XenA that vBA didn't have. vBadvanced was the best free "Home Page" for vB3. But vBadvanced was certainly not a CMS.

    Right it's not, it's a portal, but it's a nice option. Used it before, customized it, and loved it.

    Wow. Thanks very much for the mention, Joe! I'm not exactly an expert on integrating WordPress with XF/vB - such as bridging users, threads etc. - but I can at least make templates that will give the illusion of the software being integrated.

    I'd certainly love to see how XenAdvancd turns out. I used vBAdvanced for a short time before migrating over to WP and it was a very cool little CMS.

    imo, that really doesn't look any better than Jaxel's portal.

    I would use your add-on here, if it supported 3 columns. :( I love Wordpress.

    actually, Brian posted yesterday on his site saying that it won't be until the end of this year at the earliest for XenAdvanced/Dynamics.

    What type of a 3 column layout are you looking for, I could make a couple new template for it once I finish up what I'm testing now.

    Well, you can see my blog at www.onebuzymama.com.
    That has the wider column to the left, and both narrow columns on the right. But most 3-column layouts have the wider column in the center, with narrow coumns on the right and left.

    It would actually be great if you could code it so that admins have the option of having their wider column on the left, right, or center.
