Why Joomla?

Joomla! is a free and open-source, award-winning content management system (CMS) for publishing web content. It is built on a model–view–controller web application framework that can be used independently of the CMS. Joomla is written in PHP, uses object-oriented programming (OOP) techniques and software design patterns, stores data in a MySQL, MS SQL, or PostgreSQL database, and includes features such as page caching, RSS feeds, printable versions of pages, news flashes, blogs, search, and support for language internationalization.

Key features

Joomla has a web template system template processor. Its architecture is a front controller, routing all requests for non-static URIs PHP which parses the URI and identifies the target page. This allows support for more human-readable permalinks. The controller manages both the frontend, public-facing view, and a backend (GUI -driven) administration interface.

The administration interface (a) stores management and relevant content information within a database, and (b) maintains a configuration file ( configuration.php, usually located in the file system root of the Joomla installation). The configuration file provides the connection between the server, database, and file system and facilitates migrating the website from one server to another. Joomla! has thousands of free extensions and templates allowing you to customize your site to fit your specific needs.

Hundreds of developers have been improving Joomla! since the first version was released in 2005. This immense effort has made Joomla! very popular, easy to use, stable, and secure.

Joomla is a user-friendly way for people all over the world to build anything from basic websites to advanced web applications. It is considered a popular Content Management System (CMS) and currently runs 10% of the world’s business websites.

Joomla Advantages

WordPress Advantages

Ease of use – WordPress is generally regarded as being the easiest content management system to use, especially for non-developers.

Better suited for blogging – WordPress includes a distinction for “blog posts” vs “static pages” right out of the box, whereas Joomla just includes a single “article” type that you can manipulate with categories.

Extensibility – WordPress has, by far, the largest ecosystem of WordPress plugins WordPress themes, which makes it easy to extend your site with a variety of different features.

Huge support community – because WordPress is so popular, it’s easy to find help via the massive third-party ecosystem of blogs, Facebook groups, and developers.

Lower development costs – this huge community also means you can generally get development work done a bit cheaper.
