I’ve been playing around with Phase for a work project, and so far I’m darn happy. it’s more complicated than Whisper, which I also like, but in a good way, particularly for this project, where there will be sub-menus and blog sections and several authors.
not that it’s not beta-y. the documentation is scarily scant, and there are a few default behaviors that drive me nuts. but I got the basic framework of the site going in maybe 2-3 hours, and I think it’ll work for long-term maintenance, which is my constant concern these days.
