Contentsystem with dynamics


I am looking for a content management system. It uses a lot of dynamic content and also has much static content. We've implemented one on our own using php. You can have a look at the site
What can you recommend ? I thought of something like Jakarta Struts from the Apache project.

Struts is a Web application framework, not a content management system.

PHP is a Hypertext PreProcessor

What do you wish it to do that your current self-rolled system does not? Would it not be easier, given a fairly low features gap, to implement the features on your current known platform, than port your existing content to an untested system? Not meaning to generalise, just haven't got much info to go on about what you're REALLY asking...

Since you need dynamic content management, that rules out CityDesk, and since you're already using PHP, you're probably better off looking at the miriad of CMS tools written in this language instead of going for Java.

A good list is available here:

I would recommend you take a look at Drupal, eZ Publish, and pMachine.
