[TriLUG] Wordpress alternatives

I have to agree, the plugin support in Wordpress is pretty decent. If you're happy with wordpress (I don't remember if you're a current user), I would suggest looking at some of the plugins. They do seem to have a lot of security advisories, but they're also good about patching them and overall it is a good product IMO.

As a side note, or perhaps on topic, I have used B2evolution in the past, and actually prefer wordpress, but ymmv.

Fair enough. I guess I don't think of comment spam as a security
issue, but then again my blog isn't terribly popular, so...

What I do with my wordpress installs:

  * Akismet
  * Bad Behavior
  * moderate 1st post by new registrant

I get about 1 comment a week that I have to moderate. For most blogs I
suspect that Akismet and moderation will be enough.
