    Question Do you use a content management system for your sites?

    There are a wide variety of ways to implement affiliate websites. You can code pages by hand, most likely using tools to make it easier to build individual pages, but without using a content management system. Or you can use a generic content management system such as wordpress to develop your site. Or you can create customized databases that you use to maintain the content published on your websites. Of course, there are other options, and combinations of options can be used as well.

    Besides voting in the poll, be sure to explain how your website works behind the scenes and the technology you use on your site.

    I use Wordpress for a good many of my websites but I also use Microsoft Expression Web for a few of them. Wordpress is the easiest to use but I have trouble doing some things in Wordpress that Expression Web is easier to work with. I know you can probably do everything I would want to in Wordpress but I have trouble figuring out the code to make Wordpress do it. Then with a lot of customization, I cant update the theme.

    Wordpress all the way!
    Scale-able, great tools available, Google loves it, thousands of gorgeous website themes available for very little. What more to say.

    The only downside we usually come across with is vulnerability. However getting hacked can be easily avoided by choosing a WP managed host who put decent server security measures in place (just pay $10 more per months on hosting and don't go with the cheapest packages). You can also harden you WP instance with security plugins.

    Wordpress now powers more than 27% of the entire Internet. I would never use anything else to build an affiliate site.

    I voted "custom databases" although most of the time we just install Wordpress. But sometimes we tweak Wordpress code or even dismantle it and only use some of the parts (e.g. user management system) on a non-Wordpress site. I also got two or three sites which use custom databases only.

    But Wordpress by far the superior choice for most cases.

    It was Joomla 1.5
    Now completely reworked as a "custom made CMS" with "custom made databases" with the integration of a "custom made" algorithm for casino rankings.

    Wordpress, with edited themes and plugins. Double edged sword, as it's quite functional, and quite a hassle when an upgrade hits.

    I always traditionally coded my sites with a little help from Dreamweaver and a few other tools, however, my newest sites are all Wordpress based. It's quick, functional, easy to get responsive and for the most part, easy to use.

    I do have a few sites that are needing upgraded soon though and with them being smaller and very simple, they'll be rebuilt using Dreamweaver or Xara Web Designer.
