Developing a new website triggers many questions for those seeking to develop a successful website. Perhaps the first and most important question is: which website software or platform should be used? This article compares the two leading content management systems: Wordpress and Joomla. While also offering criteria to adequately determine which web design software is right for you.
Before proceeding into a side by side comparison, you must first understand all of your website's needs which may reveal which option best suits your needs.
Whether, you are a web design professional or a person with zero web development experience, or an experienced web developer, the information shared in this article and criteria to consider are pertinent to both perspectives.
Therefore, this article will explore the following criteria:
A. Understanding all your options when selecting a web development platform for a web development project:
1. Web builders provided by hosting companies
2. Open Source Solutions (Wordpress and Joomla)
3. Custom Developed Proprietary Software
B. Criteria for basing your selection
1. Function ability required by project objective
2. Ease of use
3. The future of your website and the website software you are leaning towards.
C. Comparing Wordpress versus Joomla
3. Core Features
With the advent of Web Content Management Systems, began an era where a regular person could easily update, edit, publish and modify a web sites content using a web based control panel. This means a person without web design training or expensive software programs could update their website as easy as posting status, text and images on social networking sites such as FaceBook or LinkedIN. A much added bonus is that, those who have developed their sites in a CMS no longer suffer from paying expensive hourly maintenance fees as they manage to keep their site up to date.
Features and function abilities of the various Content Management Systems differ from system to system; many simpler systems showcase only a handful of features, while others are much more complex and powerful. The industry offers “Open Source” (Free & Community Driven) and “Proprietary” (PAID and Custom Developed) systems. Both Open Source and Proprietary Options offer pros and cons. Whereas Open Source options, such as Wordpress and Joomla have proven to be a more cost effective solution for many small business owners. While Proprietary Systems are custom developed resources that are built to achieve special function ability, security features and compatibility to offline systems. However in current times, it is a safe assumption that Proprietary software's role as the primary innovator in the global market is most certainly over. As I often say myself, “Why try to rebuild the wheel, this has been done before”. Being that Open Source solutions are community drivin, the envelope is constantly being pushed!
