segsalerty, i get your point. for the record, i'm a web designer (not a programmer). but look at it this way. say your friends from secondary school wanted to get togehter (those abroad and here) to chat (u know catch up on old times and all that), and u decide to create a small forum for them (being known as the computer guy). would you rather write you codes from scratch? or pick up cms and do what u gotta do to save time, money and stress. with all due respect (no offence ment please) you'lld be silly not to. now, when you finish all this, who would you tell your friends designed.developed the forum? joomla? i'll leavet that answer to you. it took me a long time to get along with open source. but you can't help it. it's the new way forward. simple. take me a web designer for example? i can pick up one of these tools and build myself a forum or blog or what have you. easily. if i was your younger brother, won't you sudgest that i rahter learn this first and get along with it so i can get things don quickly and still learn programming on this side than rather come to disturb you to build me a forum which would take you months to build? no doubt it makes so programmers lazy but it helps. it really helps. and its free. so what exactly is the point here. seun owns nairaland (full stop). if someone wants to buy this forum would they pay smf? no way!

this i s just my own point of view o, if you can convince me otherwise, am all ears.

Now both of you!!! were are you running to. i am really beginning to enjoy this. But please keep the personal insults aside. this is a good topic. i have always considered the merits and demerits of using CMS. so let the civilized debate continue.

Dual Core think! Define Creativity! What do you call yourself a Developer or a Designer? Where do you belong? 3000 post doesn't make you what you are?

Understand something CMS is good I use it alot but it doesn't give a feeling "I did that".

Samen, i don't need to see what you have done. You can go through my over 3000 posts if u have the time and see if i have ever asked anyone to post his portfolio or projects here.

Pray tell, what's the point he is making? That it is wrong for someone to say a site is his cuz it was built with a boiler plate template or with a framework?

Get this straight, Segsalerty is not looking for a debate. if u've stayed here long enough u'll know wht he's looking for.

Further reading might help you two. Google the following

Object Oriented Programming

Software Development Life-cycle

Code Reusability.

i'm thrown aback by what i'm seeing coming out of some "webmasters" in this country.

dude are u crazy or what? so because a site was done with a CMS like joomla, someone cant come up with such sites as his sites? why were those frigin frameworks made then? u think just cuz a person uses frameworks he is a noob? wht kinda slow thinking is forming a loop in ur brain? u always complain about everything pipz do in here dont  u think u shld just get the heck off?

what the heck do u know about object oriented approach and reusability.

its damned pipz like u who think its always best to reinvent the crazy wheel.

gosh u're so gosh in ur thinking! Change man! i'll keep saying tht until it sticks into ur head or u run away from here.

why dont u try building ur own operating system? why do u have windows or linux installed and call it YOUR computer. dont u think, from ur very silly point of view, that you shouldnt be calling that computer YOURS, since u didnt build the OS its running on? tshew!

I think Segsalerty has a point

Dual Core I think you should be able to debate arguments and not turn it to a battle. Hold your temper chairmen. You sound like you are a victim of the debate Segsalerty raised.

Dont worry about my profile, its on your mind to ask me what i've done. Am a newbie.

Peace be still in Nairaland.
