I put together a listing of portals about a year ago. I haven't kept it
up to date but you may gain some insight as to what's out there.
http://home.concolor.org/portals/. If you have any to add I'd be glad
to list them.
I have used PHPNuke and would categorically disregard it and any
derivatives other than PostNuke. I understand PostNuke did a complete
rewrite of the PHPNuke code which was absolutely necessary. In my
experience with open source, the more a project is forked, the higher
the chance that something is wrong with either the management or the
code. PHPNuke has both and as a result has been forked many times. I
even had to fork to code in order to get it to work for me and I'm
still having to deal with problems arising from that decision.
Just my 0.02$.
