Why Should I Use Joomla for My Website?

joomla-wordpressI’ve been asked many times about the most suitable CMS for any website. Over the years, I have always been relying on a CMS for the ease of installation and updates on my site. I realised early on that Joomla was the best and has many things to offer and I do believe that it is a complete package, which is full of functionality perfect for any small or large website. In fact, the term “Joomla” literally means “as a whole” or “all together” and that is what the CMS platform is really capable of keeping everything in one place so you can update it easily. While WordPress basically caters to blogging, Joomla caters to a variety of websites other than blogs. If you’re a newbie to building websites but don’t have the deeper technical knowledge and skills to implement complex website elements, then Joomla is the perfect tool that you need for your CMS or Content Management System.

Are you using Joomla and looking to switch to WordPress or vice versa?

To be honest both of these website systems are awesome, they aren’t perfect as both have there ups and downs but on a whole they do a great job of managing your website’s content.  If you are updating your own site then you will probably find it easier to navigate your way around WordPress, with pages and posts it pretty simple to work out once you have made a few posts or edits. The wordPress media system for adding images is definitely a benefit, it’s easy to simply upload images and add them to your page. The downside is you can’t assign images to folders to make managing files easier later on without a plugin. With plugins to enhance the system images can be reduced to speed up the site.  Joomla is not as easy in the image department, we install JCE editor to give more options for loading up images and adding them to pages, however Joomla offers a folder system so you can assign files and images into separate files easily.
