Okay, im thinking about getting into this CMS. Tyssen, after you pay for the license, do you have to buy one for each of the sites you have under your account, having already purchased Multiple Site Manager of-course. I know this is a question for the EE peeps, but wanted Tyssen's thoughts since he uses this CMS. I could have just send him a PM, but wanted it public

You can only use multisite

You can only use multisite manager if the sites are operated by the same company or entity. In other words you can't use MSM for different clients; in that case you'd have to buy separate licenses. But there's a cumulative discount in place so the more you buy the cheaper they get.

I just dont see any

I just dont see any advantages to using EE, it costs so damn much when open source solutions can do the same. And support is only one year!!

That was a quick change of heart, capricious or what Tongue

EE does seem expensive but then I haven't used it to fully be able to judge if it delivers for the price, always a little sceptical of licensed CMS offerings, is it markedly better than Drupal or WP for lighter weight jobs?

As it uses CodeIgniter (EE seems to have bought codeIgniter?) can one not build a fairly good CMS using codeIgniter Smile perhaps not.
