Joomla Vs WordPress

Although Joomla is considered to be a CMS and WordPress is more of a blogging platform, it is very important to consider which one of these will be more appropriate for you when building your website.

When creating your website, you should probably opt for a good CMS. Joomla and WordPress are two of the most popular Content Management Systems around. However, both these CMS’ have their own set of advantages and disadvantages.

Let’s get started with WordPress. This is probably one of the easiest systems in the market today. Although most people think that WordPress is solely used for blogging purposes, it can actually be used in many ways. Installing WordPress onto your server is fairly easy and you do not really require any knowledge to create your website on your own. With WordPress, you don’t have to develop any additional scripts to get comments from your visitors because these are already built in. However, WordPress does not really provide adequate workspace for developers because if you try to make any modifications to it, the system may crash. The WordPress community won’t give you proper advice.

Joomla on the other hand is the best CMS for designers, developers and web administrators. It will allow you to create a great looking website that is easy to use. The tools that are constantly created by the Joomla developers go a long way in enhancing the performance of this CMS. Joomla keeps upgrading its features, making it more and more sophisticated. However, if you have no idea about web development, then the user interface is not very easy to use.

At the end of it all, which CMS you choose depends on the purpose of your website and whether you have development knowledge or not. However, WordPress can be a lot easier to work with that Joomla.
