Based upon dozens of reviews from around the web, I am unable to determine which of these two CMS’s (Content Management Systems) is better suited to my current needs for a online store with a multi-tiered affiliate program. So, I’ve decided to put both of them to the test. Drupal and Joomla! will go head to head so that I can find out the strengths and weaknesses of each framework. My updates and final reports will be posted in this forum as well as a final comparison chart.

For starters, I’ll set up a simple ecommerce site (a dummy site with no real content) and see how each one takes the challenge. The goal is to have nearly identical sites in both looks and functions. When they both have the base site running, I’ll add in the affiliate program. I anticipate having to modify some modules/extensions or even create a few of my own to get all of the features that I need.
