Joomla is a powerful, capable and feature-rich Content Management System (CMS) that adds efficiency to the process of developing and maintaining websites. Joomla is the second-largest CMS globally (after WordPress) and currently powers over 2 million websites.
Joomla vs WordPress
As professional developers of both Joomla and WordPress websites, our clients often ask which is best for their needs. Both are highly capable CMS’s, but both have different strengths, and suit different projects.
WordPress was originally developed to support blogs – which are among the simplest of websites. The system has been extended hugely, and today powers sites of all sizes and levels of complexity. WordPress has always kept a focus on simplicity – but in certain cases, that emphasis may be viewed as a compromise.
If you’re looking for a solution that was developed from the ground up for more advanced websites, then Joomla may offer a better alternative. While it can support simple blogs and brochure sites, the CMS comes into its own for businesses that need an advanced system to meet more complex demands.
