Again which CMS to choose

I can use search, of course. But the last such question popped up here in 2011. And during this time there have been a lot of changes.

And so the restrictions that are imposed on the CMS:
1) The probability of hacking. I understand that the question is naive and that everything can be hacked (if desired). But the most important thing is the stylistics. I have not been doing web development lately, and therefore, in this matter, I have more statistics from Google (a la “wordpress hacking”).

2) Gratuity (that is, free of charge) will be a big plus in choosing. You can, of course, buy for example bitrix and blame all security problems on them. But it is better to minimize costs.

3) Functionality and the possibility of its expansion. Are there ready-made modules for administration (backup, restoring), blogging, statistics and store. But for example, the same bitrix allows you to store templates in a thousand different places, which is not good. But the CNC capability already protects the site a little.

PS: A couple of years ago I used 3 sites on Joomla 1.5, 1.7. Constantly tormented with the problem of hacking and password recovery. Therefore, I would not like to step on such a rake again.

PPP: Please make the answers more reasonable and detailed, so that people like me can rely on something with links, and not with unreasonable assumptions. And do not drown in the flow of the flame. If you indicate the strengths and weaknesses of some single CMS and even bring the logic of reasoning, it will be just super.

Now almost all cms except for highly specialized ones (photos, online stores, for example) have a very similar set of plugins in terms of functionality, so the choice, as usual, is to write technical specifications, install the latest versions of popular CMS, look through their galleries for plugins for the desired functionality (authorization, photo galleries, forums, etc.) and form an opinion for yourself and the customer.
I have a personal website for many years on WordPress, it has never been hacked. What I like is that during installation, the admin login can already be entered by the user himself, respectively, it has become even more difficult to sort through and hack cms (the login can be hidden by displaying the username) and you can rewrite until the release of the 10th iPhone of the second coming.
Plus, it should be borne in mind that half of the popular cms, if not more, can already run quite normally not only on LAMP, but also on the Windows + IIS platform.

If you own erlang, look towards Zotonic CMS. For hacking, you need to have very highly specialized knowledge. Knowing the language, you can bring extensibility to infinity. Development is very similar to Django. True, the entry threshold is quite high - many things will have to be smoked for a long time and hard, but after that comes paradise. The speed of work is very high. And yes, it's completely free.

If you are familiar with C# and ASP.Net MVC technology, then you can try KooBoo CMS. True, there are almost no ready-made plugins for it, but I like it because you can program it directly from the administrative interface on the site (i.e. write C # code directly in views - view). PS: for small volumes, it does not require a database and works with XML as a data source.
