Pros: I came to use Joomla when I needed to build a web based portal for my company to organize internal resources and data. While I can't call myself a Linux guru, it really took me 15 minutes to get my initial Joomla website up and running. Instructions are very clear and simple. Joomla was my first CMS product to evaluate. While it did take me a couple of days to understand it's structure, from that point, building a website was as easy as 123. Everything is visual. You don't have to be a great programmer / web developer to get along with this product. With the amount of available free and paid plugins, sky is really your limit to your web site customization. While my website was fairly simple (as that's the way I wanted to have it), I've seen examples of very complex high end websites, built on Joomla. My favorite feature is a backup. It so happened several times, that I managed to break my website. Restoring from a backup and going back live was so easy, it was hard to believe. Provided this was a totally free solution (Ubuntu Linux + Joomla CMS), I couldn't ask for a better software for my project.

Cons: Really nothing. Like I said it did take me a couple of days to understand how to add content and structure it, but once this was figured out, the rest was a breeze.

Overall: Not only I learned something new, which I've never known before, I was also able to present a great looking product to a higher level management, which really didn't cost company a penny.

Pros: Joomla! has been around for decades, and the reason for such popularity and continued use is that it is easy-to-use and manage, it is open source and has a huge and active community that maintains it. The community provides extensive documentation, FAQs, and support for almost any question or issue you may encounter.

Joomla! can be set up locally and easy to deploy to the Internet publicly. The security features have significantly improved through the years.

This CMS comes with an intuitive dashboard. And there are many third-party integrations available for setup. Since this is open source, the elements are customizable to suit your needs.

Cons: Setting up may require an initial (steep) learning curve. May be not as easy to set up as Wix or Weebly. Hence may require the admin to be more-or-less tech savvy (and not just a beginner).

Overall: Joomla! CMS is one of the first out there, and it keeps improving. Support is easy to find via their active Open source community. The setup requires a little reading up, but once you get past this initial hurdle, everything else is easy to use, intuitive, and super flexible to suit everyone's need.

Joomla! is also a good choice in teaching young IT and Web enthusiasts since it is open source and fully extensible and customizable. It will run on older hardware, and minimum requirement will not be a problem.

Exceptional web developing software application!

Pros: Joomla is an open source content management system that non-profit, state agencies, small-businesses, or corporations. Organizations can benefit from utilizing Joomla because the features within the applications are relatively simple to utilize to distribute company's information on a website. Joomla is an excellent tool that interfaces with your company's network that allows for online applications to be built. Joomla utilizes a standard website content builder similar to Word Press that allows for classified fields to be entered by the end user. Content can be managed by authenticated or authorized users for publishing purposes. Content can be synced with the company's intranet or internet ensuring smooth synchronization between two platforms using PHP and SQL.

Cons: Promotional materials may be forwarded to the company's legal address as providing an address is required upon registering with volunteers.joomla.org. IP Address may be utilized to identify possible abuse, which may be shared between third parties. IP Addresses my be shared when commenting on features, which also includes the users name and email address. Other information may be collected, but the "other information" is not specified within the terms of service agreement or privacy policy. Sharing of other information can be allowed with third parties regarding advertisements of goods or services.

Overall: The benefits of using Joomla include managing content within a secured database. Other benefits of Joomla include learning about site analytics, metadata, structure and navigation of building a professional website. Additional benefits of utilizing Joomla include receiving a certification for the completion of certain exams. Furthermore, the benefits of utilizing Joomla consist of being able to clone or download repositories from GitHub to assist with more website development.

Comments: I've been using Joomla! for almost 10 years, since the very early days of the project. It's come a long, long way since then, and it remains one of the most flexible and feature-rich CMSes out there. The caveat is that any novice will have difficulty learning the ins and outs of Joomla unless they are massively dedicated to pouring over pages of documentation. When compared to WordPress, it has more out-of-the-box features but is a little less user-friendly in terms of getting up and going.

Pros: The built-in ACL is excellent, allowing you to easily create user-focused site without adding a ton of plugins. Joomla beats WordPress in user management, menu management, and template management out of the box. There is very little that you can't do with this software.

Cons: Many people don't keep the software up-to-date, which leads to security concerns and has given the impression that Joomla is insecure. It's not any more or less than other open source software, but it HAS to be kept up-to-date, and with all open source CMSes security software is a must. SEO isn't quite as easy in Joomla but I hear that's changing with upcoming releases.

Recommendations to other buyers: I highly recommend Joomla for associations and small-to-midsize businesses, who can afford to pay a Joomla expert to keep the software updated and assist with the initial set-up and design. It's not for the beginner DIYer, however, and it's overkill for small businesses who just want a brochure website without a ton of features.

Pros: We use Joomla for our County websites that serve 1 million plus customers. We have a number of staff editors that maintain their specialized content for our 3 local government websites here in Southern California. When working with Joomla, a good template developer is essential and it's important to use a good hosting company for ease of installation and maintenance. We use InspireThemes for our templates and SiteGround as our hosting company. This is a terrific combination as these vendors provide excellent products and superior support.

Joomla is a fantastic CMS for our needs as it provides stability, powerful extensions, room for expansion, and ease of use.

Cons: I would strongly advise anyone wanting to use Joomla to start with a Quickstart template with a strong framework built in, like Gantry5 framework. The Quickstart templates save development time and frustration. You can easily install a fresh template in a matter of minutes and then choose your features and away you go!

But use a reliable template developer and a customer service oriented hosting company - VERY IMPORTANT!

Overall: I've had a great experience with Joomla as it has a huge number of extensions, particles, and templates to help you get the perfect results for a refined and highly functional website.

Pros: Joomla with its open source concept has allowed our university to flourish with nearly 2000 articles. I've taken it apart and put it back together several times. From the php to the sql database, joomla provides the developer the opportunity to debug a lot easier. It's also easy to manipulate and create new templates, module spaces and global modifications. We currently have three distinct sites on one install, which helps us maintain the updates. Joomla has been our backborn since 1.5 and we've never looked back. Although its main competitor Wordpress and Drupal offer more bells and whistles, we are grateful for the developers that keep adding and making joomla even better every iteration. Joomla's becoming more streamline and less bloated, which helps our systems run much faster.

Cons: As of late, the security updates have crashed our systems. However, we are able to fix these problems quickly. The main con we do have is that there are few developers on the marketplace offering modules and components. The ones we do find have not been updated for years which is concerning. Joomla system core does have some bloat but can be easily removed.

Pros: Instead of focusing on Joomla only I tell you why Joomla is a better alternative compared to Wordpress in many scenarios when you are not looking for blog only solution. (Of course when it comes to Blogs there's EasyBlog for Joomla). WordPress was and is technically inferior compared to Joomla because of - spaghetti codes - no multilingual option out of the box - nor access levels and control - nor proper menu management (for those with portals to manage 50+ menu items) - no template, plugin and language overrides (always creating a child theme is really something that shouldn't exist in the first place) - nor user groups and a lot of other noes

Cons: The reason Wordpress is still better in many scenarios is thanks to the amazing 3rd party plugin developers (who can rely on the raw purchasing power of myriads of Wordpress users) like Yoast, Woocommerce and multitudes of others and the fast and easy interface. Since Joomla now have a SEO plugin similar to Yoast (called PWT SEO) there are fewer and fewer reasons not to choose Joomla.

Joomla is an amazingly versatle way to build great websites fairly easily.

Pros: I love the versatility of Joomla - its ability to make your website anything you want it to be. I have been using it since its inception and being free to start off with is a big winner, and many of the addons are free, so it doesn't take much to set it up and get going. There is a wealth of information available to help you and lots of support groups to join to help you get the most out of the product. I believe Joomla leads the way in many web design standards and is a world class product produced and maintained by a talented and dedicated team of volunteers.

Cons: Sometimes it is hard to sift through all the info in forums and support sites to find out what you need, and because it has evolved so rapidly, there is a lot of stuff out there from older versions that slows down searches.

Overall: Its versatility and flexibility make Joomla a great product to work with once you get your head around how it works. There are plenty of tutorials to help the process so it doesn't take long.

Pros: I use Joomla to build websites for my clients who need a little edge when it comes to the security of their websites. Unlike other CMS's Joomla so far is the most secure CMS I have worked with. My most favorite thing about Joomla is the stable security. I have never experienced a case of any of my Joomla websites getting hacked.

Another reason I like Joomla is that it is easy to use. The architecture of the templates is made up of modules which show you where to place different components on your website pages. I always found it easier to work with template modules.

Another thing I like about Joomla is that is it a free software - open source. You don't have to pay to use Joomla. It is just a matter of downloading it and installing it. The only thing you might need to pay for is the premium templates.

Cons: The disadvantage I face with Joomla is that unlike Wordpress, there isn't much help material on the internet to help you when you are stuck with something. Yes, there are some situations where you will find help on something but the likelihood of finding such material is less as compared to that of WordPress. Sometimes you might end up hiring a programmer to help you fix something that you could have fixed yourself if only someone had posted it online.

Overall: I love Joomla because of the stability and security of Joomla Websites. For companies whose websites have a high likelihood of being hacked, I would recommend they use Joomla to set up their websites.

Pros: Very powerful tools to restrict and grant access to users and admins built-in. I find it more secure then Wordpress, which is probably due to Wordpress' popularity, however, there are a lot of security features built-in. Very active community and the plugins are vetted regularly that are posted on their website. Joomla websites are very versatile in what they can be used for and can grow as you need them. They keep a regular update schedule and keep the community updated .

Cons: It can be a little confusing whether the content is coming from an article, component or a module. They don't handle canonical links very well and links are all menu based (however that can be a positive because it's easy to dictate what you'd like for a URL). Media Manager is a bit cumbersome and hopefully, version 4 will address a lot of the issues (such as replacing images).

Overall: I build sites for myself and clients using this platform.

Pros: Joomla is free software therefore we can review it from head to foot without problem and adapt it to

our needs, for this we must have knowledge in php and database, depending on the level of knowledge and the ability to understand foreign source code, you can achieve wonders with Joomla.

My beginnings with Joomla were with version 1.7 and migrating it to 2.5 was quite tedious, so much was

the impact that I decided to forget about the previous version and start a new website, which was a boost perfect to update the design, select a good template and modify it as required;later the migration of 2.5 to 3 following the tutorial of the official page was much more Simple and fast, I had no problems with the database.

Joomla allows the installation of infinities of modules, plugins and extensions that facilitate the work and allow to diversify the page, making it attractive, has extesiones for the management of the security to avoid hacking; changing the language for me was fundamental.

There is a large community to find information about Joomla.In terms of user management and administration, it is very broad, with profiles and groups an important level of security is maintained

The way to classify the articles by categories, allows you to have an organized and clean website.

Cons: - If it's a blog what you need to do, I do not recommend using Joomla

- Some plugins or modules can be security holes.

- Also some plugins or modules offer features that you only get if you pay, of course this does not depend directly on Joomla but on the developers of each module, but it can be frustrating when you want to add functionality and you can not pay it.

Overall: For developers I recommend Joomla

Joomla is a CMS system that is works well for sites with a lot of content, like magazine sites.

Pros: Joomla is quite user friendly, and simple to run/manage. It works well to power sites that have a lot of content, and there are now many free plugins that extend its scope. The URLs can be made into SEO friendly URLs with the aid of plugins and installation is not too difficult.

Cons: The back-end admin panel looks and feels rather dated and it is not a very secure script. Hackers are known to easily break into Joomla sites and it seems to consume quite a lot of server resources. If you need support, you are largely limited to the discussion board. Although there are many free plugins, but they may not be updated often, and you could be forced to buy expensive paid plugins simply because your options are limited.

Overall: Joomla was running a site of mine for several years until I sold it off. The basic version of Joomla can do the job well enough indeed, but the script was never very secure, and I had to do a major version update later on, which was not easy. So I never updated the site at all. For people who do not know anything about PHP, managing a Joomla site can be harder than it looks. The back-end admin can look and feel outdated/slow if you come from a WordPress background. But as far as doing the job, no issues there, and it is still more user-friendly than Drupal.

Pros: Joomla is incredibly extendable, and the grid system is easy to teach clients without a whole bunch of math, like many of the other grid-based page builders. It's structural components are, to me, more intuitive and flexible than what you find in WordPress.

Cons: Sometimes the developer community may not quite keep pace with the updates, but there's rarely ever a hiccup large enough to make me switch CMS platforms.

Overall: I think it depends on the end user, but for anyone who have even a basic understanding of relational data (content), they'll find this platform immensely approachable. It sometimes gets a bad rap compared to WordPress, but if you're working with power users who may get frustrated by the limited accessibility of other platforms, Joomla's the way to go.

Pros: Very intuitive interface with support in different languages. The learning curve is fast for users with basic knowledge of web design. However, you need some knowledge of the database in order to configure the site or put it to work on the Internet.

Being open source, it has an extensive community of developers that publish modules to add new features to those that it brings by default.

The management and updating of versions is very simple. You do not need advanced technical knowledge to update it.

Cons: Because many of the plugins are developed by the user community, some come with errors that can generate instability in the system.

A CMS that puts many others to shame.

Pros: I have been using Joomla for well over 10 years. I love the functionality and extendability as a web developer. The community for Joomla is amazing when you need help, and customizing is a breeze with a little PHP knowledge. My favorite though, is the ease of the templating system...so quick and easy to create custom templates!

Cons: You do need to know some coding in order to really tap into the potential that the Joomla CMS has...but even if you're going for simple, it's a great tool to use for building websites.

Overall: Joomla is one of my two go to open-source softwares for building amazing websites for my clients....but Joomla has been my go to for the longest!

We have used Joomla since 2008 for our websites. We still use it, but plan to switch to pure html.

Pros: Joomla is a secure open-source solution for your website. It is less know than its main competitor - Wordpress, but this disadvantage turns into two main advantages:

First, its is more secure: hackers just don't bother to develop hacking tools for Joomla website, they go for Wordpress site. Joomla also offers many tools for free that are concerned with security - database tools, protection tools etc. Google for Akeeba if you concern about security and it also an excellent tool for your back up.

Second, the community is less crowded and some really good programmers work on it.

Joomla is easily installed with tools like Softacoulous - and you can find it in any CPanel hosting.

Cons: It's overkill for us in administration. It ideally fits a medium to large company where several people work on one website. For company with up to 30 people and a couple of people working on the website -it just too many features.

Overall: It's free and open source and quite easy to use.

Joomla vs. Drupal: That's what it really comes down to for your website.

Pros: Wordpress rules the Internet.

Then there is Joomla and Drupal.

Wordpress started as a blogging platform and has slowly morphed into a CMS. Joomla started life as a CMS (content management system).

Joomla is very powerful, but has a steeper learning curve than Wordpress. But many companies will need the added power of Joomla. It isn't as 'easy' as Wordpress, but if it's developed properly, you can get a much more powerful website out of it. And in today's business environment, with eCommerce, marketing and everything needing to be integrated, Joomla is a great way to do that!

Also, there is pretty good online support for Joomla. And I'd have to say Joomla's community is better than Drupal, but not as busy as Wordpress. So if you have a developer on staff or on retainer, and they're familiar with Joomla, you can get amazing results!

Cons: We tried implementing Joomla for a few specific reasons (basically we couldn't get what we wanted from other platforms without a lot of paid customization).

We know there are plenty of websites running Joomla, and plenty of people love it. In many ways, it comes down to what you're familiar with and what you like. For us, though, the user and admin interfaces in DRUPAL were easier to learn than Joomla (especially the 'new' Drupal 8).

So, the backend of Joomla could use some refinement, in our humble opinion.

Overall: Joomla is a great CMS for websites, and you can integrate it with other platforms to really get your integration going. Be prepared for some design help, and a bit of programming help, compared to simple 'website builders' or even Wordpress, if you need a bigger and more complicated and interactive website.

Pros: Joomla, as web CMS platform allows you to build modular and dynamic Web site. It is possible to use many finished modules and add-ons, but you can even program your own. Having that option available, Joomla can be right fit for everyone who requires quick and affordable web site, that is fully adaptable and configurable.

Cons: Joomla has a lot of legacies from php world. You need to care about frequent updates and potential exploits. It is possible, but pretty much complex to set automatic update for the CMS on all web hostings, as well as for the modules. Because of that, for complex web sites, and for enterprise solutions, Joomla is nowadays just not proper fit.

Overall: I've been using Joomla for more than 10 years. It sneaked trough technologies and web development, and yet, stayed on the marked as a great Open Source project. Even though that its legacy makes new, cutting edge web technologies hard to use, it still can offer great potential for customized web sites that require CMS.

Pros: It's can be intimidating at first, but once you "get it", it becomes second nature to you- especially if you have to use it daily, as I was in my previous job. Quite straightforward and very powerful - and a lot of features a company can use when it grows. I doubt we used 10% of it.

Cons: Even for a company with 50 employees (my previous employer) it's a bit of overkill. It s ideal for large publishing house for example. Some features are added by third party plugins (K2), which can add to confusion.

Overall: Very powerful content management system

Pros: Free! You just gotta love high functional software that does so much, all for free! You can design any website you want. It is highly customizable. I think this is even better than wordpress.

Cons: Customer support from the company is almost non-existant. But there is a pretty good community out there where you can get most of your answers taken care of. While the price is right for the base product, please know that to unlock the functionality easily, you will be paying a dev some money for things like skins/templates.

Pros: I have used Joomla for over three years now. Compared to Wordpress, Joomla is easy to set up since the module positions are already set up in the Templates. Another awesome thing about Joomla is the security. Joomla websites are rarely hacked. Another advantage about Joomla is the nature of the templates; they are neater and clean.

Cons: One issue I have always had with Joomla is the fact that there is little online help. This means if you are having a challenge with doing something on the system, you may not find the solution online and you can be forced to hire experts to do it for you hence making the whole process expensive. Another disadvantage about Joomla is there isn't a variety of plugins and extensions to help you extend the functionality of your website.

Overall: 1. Strong Security of my websites

2. Clean templates

3. Multi-lingual features

4. The software is open source

We use Joomla more than 4 years.

Pros: Joomla is ideal for complex websites that require 3+ people to work on them. It's bit sophisticated out of the box (at least out of the box) but as soon as you get used to it (or get some training, e.g. on LinkedIn Lynda.com) - you start to like it.

Cons: Unfortunately, community of Wordpress is larger and there more developers, plug ins etc. Frankly, I personally like Joomla! but have to work with Wordpress, as it is often more easy, due to its ambiguity.

Overall: Free software, excellent content management system.

Overall: CMS base platform that is easy to secure and develop on if you have the time and patience to ramp up on the software.

Pros: TONS of development in extensions, plugins, templates and the like. Solid, open-source platform with ongoing development and updates for security and new features. I'd recommend it to anyone who is willing to spend the time to learn to implement the platform.

Cons: There is a significant learning curve to master the implementation and manipulation of the amazing features of this platform. You'll need to get that under your belt before you can master it, but it is worth the effort.

Pros: I was seeking for a powerful software, one which builds any kind of website or blogs, a flexible one as well with vast templets for superb customization. Well, I do not dispute this software at all.

One other outstanding feature that I deeply liked was, though support options might seem limited, as a user, I am able to join hands with Joomla Extention Directory for improved support

Cons: I have no bond of contentions with Joomla! It is an outstanding software.

Probably the best all-around CMS for websites.

Pros: Joomla! provides the best balance between features and easy-of-use. When a client wants extensive features but doesn't want to hire a webmaster to maintain the site, this is the CMS I use.

Cons: It often times takes extra steps to do the same thing other CMS softwares might can do in fewer steps. It is sometimes more difficult to troubleshoot issues that arise. The transition from major version to version is not always a smooth process.

Overall: The ability to create websites with greater customization and features.

Pros: Professional build-in functionalities without searching for plugins. There is a user role system and you can give or take priviledges to user roles. Also the menu management system is really great and if your site has a lot of menu items, Joomla is the only way to keep your site properly mentained.

Cons: Free templates are looking... old (at least most of them). Also there are a lot of modules-components that are not made well.

Overall: It made my life as a web designer really easy.

Product is quite user friendly for a beginner.

Pros: We are very pleased to be able to have such a high quality webpage for our municipality and be able to keep it up to date, in house, using municipal staff. The site is set up to be easy to navigate, and if I ever need help, there is definitely a youtube video out there to walk me through the task I am looking to accomplish.

Cons: Takes some getting used to and practice to master the tasks, but that is to be expected when regarding web design and management.

Overall: We use this software on a municipal level for our webpage design and management. We had a web designer set up the page, and we are able to manage and update it regularly in house which saves us a lot financially. We have local events and information which change weekly and sometimes even daily. It is great to be able to keep our citizens updated immediately after decisions are made and important information out to the public as quick as possible.

Pros: There is a lot you can do with Joomla. It's more robust than Wordpress, so you can do more than simply blog. There is a lot of documentation and material out there, and plenty of templates so you can build whatever your heart desires.

Cons: Learning curve is steep. There is a lot of documentation, but frequently issues that arise are not documented and difficult to solve. Most documentation involves using this as a blogging platform and not how to manipulate your vision into a functional site -- so it takes a while to learn how to manipulate things. The larger your site gets, as well, the more odd bugs you're likely to encounter. A non-programmer can make things work, but knowledge of programming and how the back end works is necessary to make something that doesn't look cookie-cutter.

Pros: Customization is a huge plus, being able to take a third-party template and develop it beyond what is built and turn it into your own masterpiece. You can build almost any kind of website by just thinking outside the box and making changes in CSS to match your style.

Cons: Lack of third-party development, in recent years less development has happened and more marketplaces are shutting which is causing Joomla to be looked over.

Pros: Joomla has been around for more than 10 years and has matured and gotten a lot of developer support for templates, plug ins, and components. The extensibility allows a wide variety of features to be added without writing code. Free to deploy. Generally add-on tools are inexpensive.

Cons: It is often necessary to search for methods to achieve functionality that may already be in the product, but isn't obvious as to how to achieve it. The pop-up information bubbles in the back-end have helped immensely and should be expanded.

Overall: Joomla is my preferred Content Management System for deploying personal and customer websites. Once deployed, my customers can manage their own content, if they choose. While the initial learning curve can be steep if you want to do more than a simple site, subsequent sites go up much quicker.

Pros: The main advantage of Joomla is that it is free, it has a large number of free templates and add-ons (modules, plug-ins, components). The (CMS) Joomla friendly interface of the system, everything is clear and understandable, it is very difficult to get confused. And if it still happened, then the network has a lot of useful information (articles, video lessons, etc.) on working with CMS. In general, working with Joomla almost does not require special skills, the main functions can be mastered very quickly.

Cons: It is worth noting one not very good content management system. Joomla is the most hacking system out of free. But a knowledgeable and understanding person in this matter can easily make this system completely safe.

Pros: Joomla is a decent CMS, with a rich set of features. It does its job in managing your content and customizing your website. It has a wide variety of plugins, so in most cases you don't even need a software engineer support - pretty much everything works out of the box.

I also like the fact that there are lots of templates, which can be easily used to customize your website.

Cons: It feels like at some point the flexibility Joomla brings to you, comes with a bunch of downsides. After you add plugins, the performance starts lacking (pages are loaded not as fast as you'd expect them). Also, setting up some certain things takes time and certain level of expertise.

Overall: Overall experience is positive, though be ready to face some issues here and there.

Pros: In our company, we use CMS Joomla to create small sites. The system provides a large selection of templates and extensions for website development. Each template can be quickly edited for your own needs. There is full support for popular databases: PostgreSQL and Microsoft SQL Server.

Cons: Among the shortcomings of Joomla, I want to mention not the most convenient and friendly admin panel interface. Also, sites created on this CMS have a low level of security. Therefore, when developing large portals do not need to rely on Joomla.

I've been very happy with Joomla for my business.

Pros: Joomla is a bit more modular than its "competitors" in the fact that modules can be installed into various sections of the website. The platform has a very active support community and various locations for plugins and components. The fact that it now supports in-place upgrades makes this MY platform or choice (I'm a techie) but if designing for others who are not a technical, I might steer them toward a more simplistic platform.

Cons: The only con I has been eliminated in recent years as the in-place upgrades are the only flaw they had way back in versions 1 and 2.

Overall: We had used Joomla for a public website as well as a intranet. We tied the login to our Active Directory and allowed staff access to other parts of the site that was not public.

Pros: 1.) This Joomla CMS offers many alternatives for development, from a simple personal web page to complex corporate web applications.

2.) This product offers a huge number of templates for several fields, very flexible.

3.) Not only is a CMS oriented towards electronic commerce, but its modular nature allows it to be integrated in the same web.

Cons: 1.) If you want to create a Blog, it is not the ideal platform for which you create and maintain our blog that does not have the essential elements characteristic of blogs, such as a comment system, label system and tag cloud. implanted in the new version 3.0).

2.) The list of templates and modules (similar to WordPress Widgets) is not very intuitive.

It has too many options, for a new user, I could use it, although, in my opinion, if a system has many more options, we can customize it.

Overall: Joomla gives us many plugins or extensions to make virtual stores, I think that more than extensions are like applications that separately perform many activities, which facilitate development.

Pros: Joomla is a great content management system software that is used for the development of websites. Joomla can be utilized to create numerous types of websites.

Compared to other Content Management Systems out there, Joomla is one of the easier to learn ones, and also highly customizable.

It provides a great interface for website owners/administrators to manage their website and do content updating. I will recommend it's used to all aspiring and current web designers.

Cons: Joomla is great, not much negatives to mention, but one of the cons against Joomla is that it exists in a very competitive space where a number of web content management systems exist.

One may come a cross another CMS which may be easier to learn and use.

Overall: Great tool for web design.

Pros: this system is a cms that helps to create and manage a web page in a more simple way, joomla has an easy search engine and able to raise your level in an incredible way in addition to disellar templates easier than you think.

Cons: Media management is very poor and limited, with no ability to move, resize, crop, scale and organize. This is a big disappointment and for CMS with this level of activity and popularity. The lack of version control really harms the system and it is unfortunate that something so coveted has been excluded. Sure, there are add-ons that can do the job instead of the central system, but one should not rely on add-ons for functionalities like this.

Overall: is sometimes limited by some of the features of the content manager but nothing that can not be complemented with a good plugin in place, although it would be the best way to work without so many plugins but is able to create good templates that you can use to your ideal web page.

Pros: Joomla has been around for ages and is one of the most popular CMS systems around. Joomla is easy to use, easily extendible with themes and plugins and is easy to install and set up (as you might expect from a better CMS system).

Cons: Joomla is missing the huge plugin developer base as its competitor WordPress has. It is lacking some amazing 3rd party plugins such as WordFence, Jetpack and Yoast. Some other minor cons:

- No demo data available (or hard to get by).

- User interface is a bit date in my opinion.

- Like every popular CMS; an extensive track record of severe vulnerabilities.

Pros: I many years ago with Joomla began to study site building. Now the network has the two most popular systems of construction sites - Joomla and WordPress. WordPress is adapted mainly to blogs, so I decided to take a closer look at Joomla. Immediately I will say, even without experience in site building, I managed to do something, put even a Russian version. I was bribed by the fact that according to reviews Joomla can help build any complexity site - even with an internal chat room, a forum, maybe even create an online store. In fact, this is so, but I realized this already when I became a specialist in the installation and configuration of different CMS.

Cons: As a beginner, I realized that this system will not work for me, it is quite difficult to master. We need textbooks, courses, a lot of practice to understand it.

Pros: I decided to launch my first project 5 years ago, as the engine was chosen CMS Joomla, which was too complex for me. Tech support is responsive, but it helped me a little. Having broken his head for several days, I decided to abandon this system and look for analogues. I do not recommend this system for beginners. Just wasting your time.

Cons: Too complicated, to master from scratch I did not succeed. You need to simplify the interface, too many functions - it's good for a professional, and a beginner first needs to learn the basics.

Pros: The things that I like most about Joomla is that it is open source, therefore any one can code freely, there is also a large library of plugis that solve problems and the possibility of working with already designed templates, whether they are paid or free.

Cons: Joomla has some things that I do not like and is that it stays behind its competitors, the benefits it has are very simple compared to other content managers, basically its main use is only for websites that are blogs, and so So much is short when it comes to talking about e-commerce sites, the configuration of SEO or positioning is more complicated and less effective than its competitors and besides them it is more complex to use than others with which better results are achieved. It is also good to clarify that in my opinion the library of both paid and free templates are very basic in comparison to the class of websites that we see today.

Overall: My experience with Joomla has been regular, I have used it for certain projects of websites, but the truth is that the result has not been as I have expected and as much as I have tried to achieve it becomes uphill due to the same limitations that this manager has. content, I feel it is an option to consider but as long as they take into consideration the others that exist in the market and know their benefits and their disadvantages.

Pros: Very flexible

Thousands of people developing modules and extensions

Loads of free or low cost templates available

Cons: Can be mind-bendingly complicated

Sometimes difficult to assess the quality of extensions, especially from a security perspective

Overall: I've worked with Joomla for 10 years now, and seen it grow from being a clunky, limited CMS to being the best one there is for slightly-more-than-basic websites. It's flexibility and the availability of great extensions gives it the edge over Wordpress.

Pros: This software is FREE! I started to use it for my web projects in 2009. Since then they improved it a lot. With the current selection of modules I can build the website with different level of functionality. Whenever I stuck, I went to Joomla! forums and got help immediately. After short training my clients were able to make a basic web site maintenance on their own.

Cons: Websites based on Joomla! are taking some extra time to upload their content.

Pros: Joomla is an open source and easy to use solution for creating websites in a few minutes. Initial installation and preparation could be a bit difficult for a novice user. But after the first session, you could do it without a second thought in minutes. Many plugins available for Joomla and it's more secure than many of its competitors.

Cons: Initial configuration is a bit complex for a novice as I've mentioned earlier. Also, some components and modules are a bit confusing when using.

Overall: Among the CMS services, Joomla is one of the best services which I can recommend and access control of Joomla is much easy and effective in my opinion.

Comments: It is my first choice when it comes to CMS with flexibility and potential for websites with a deeper structure than only a blog site. With all its plugins and modules you can almost solve any customer needs by just installing it. It needs a bit of a time to get into the system and understand the main structure, but after this, it is easy to understand.

Pros: Huge gallery of plugins and modules. An active community with a lot of professional programmers for template and plugins. Easy to install and to maintain with its easy update function.

Cons: E-commerce. There are a few plugins for e-commerce, but if your focus is selling products, there are more sophisticated products.

Pros: Free content management system, suitable for novice developers. In the presence of a large number of free templates and modules that perform the most common functions - the creation of photo galleries, forms, pop-ups. Quick and easy to install.

Cons: This system not suitable for creating large online stores (plugins designed for this purpose are complicated to configure and produce many errors). The system is not entirely suitable for SEO - generates duplicate pages, any technical garbage can get into the index of search engines.

Pros: I will note that it will be easy for even a beginner to master this website constructor, since there are enough educational information on the Internet, as well as a lot of extensions and additions. The functionality of the program is quite decent, a huge variety of ready-made templates and modules.

Cons: Periodically, the system gives errors and is buggy, when introducing a new design, the site starts to slow down, the program requires too much traffic, there are problems with the promotion of the site.

Pros: We have implemented this management system for our customers' online stores. We run a small business, so we wanted to find some inexpensive service. In addition, our partners already had a pleasant experience with this CMS. I want to say that we are not mistaken with the choice: Joomla quickly customizes the store with the help of ready-made templates. We only had to correct them under our corporate style.

Cons: At first, we tried free templates, but it was very difficult to customize them under our store. With paid everything was much faster, we spent only a week on the transition. So keep in mind that you will have to pay a little bit for quality.

Pros: Joomla is my CMS of choice when I realise bigger websites. It has a steeper learning curve, agreed, but therefor more flexibility than WordPress. But you will get rewarded with fast sites since Joomla has a caching system integrated.

Cons: Like I said the learning curve is pretty steep, plus sometimes (because of its origins in Mambo) it's a tad difficult to find something.

Pros: Offers great customizability for a fraction of the work (compared to Drupal). It also has a very big community behind for components, themes, bugs, etc. It has a CMF (content management framework) behindit, basically allowing you to turn it into any kind of app you want.

Cons: The steep learning curve is the biggest drawback for a developer. Also, as a client/user coming from WordPress, this is a completely new thing that will get you scared.

Overall: Completed a very big project (a betting tips solution) in no time. The client was extremely pleased with the outcome.

Pros: Joomla is one of the most powerful CMS for the development of websites, we can develop simple and complex websites. There are a variety of plugins that we can integrate to provide different features, also has a large community of users around the world so there is much help information.

Cons: I think that its interface is not so intuitive and it costs a bit more work to learn it thoroughly if we compare it with other similar CMS.

Overall: It is a great CMS for web development if we manage to master it we can create high quality websites.

Pros: Very complete CMS with lots of freely available templates, extensions and plugins. Extending it is easy for a developer, the backend is clean and intuitive.

Cons: We had security issues on almost every Joomla! installation we use. The code base is not very clean and therefore can be exploited by hackers. Biggest problem are the many badly developed extensions one can find online. There is no way of telling in advance if they are reliable or not. Yes, they are publicly rated and reviewed but experience tells us that the public can not always be trusted.

Another important issue IMHO is, that many templates change the backend and modify the functionality in a way that it becomes very difficult to understand what happens under the hood. So you may or may not be able to customize those templates. At that point normally one has to pay for pro versions or support.

Overall: Mainly loss of time debugging and searching for ways to customize for the need of my customers.

Pros: It's the best platform you can choose for your company's website. It's options and modules are excellent. You can setup your pages, place your modules in various positions. SEO-wise it's pretty also good. There are a great number of free templates to use. If you can code a bit, you can make it even more appealing.

Cons: Sometimes you need to do a bit more, like include a blog in your website. It can do it, but it's not the best. So you must install an extension that will be like a whole new system, with it's own role. Also the image in content management could use a simpler way to work for articles.

Pros: We moved our sites to Joomla after the editors of our company began to complain about the complex interface from the previous CMS. Because of this, the publication on the site went out longer than we would like. But the transition to Joomla fixed it. Thanks to the convenient editor and the administrative panel, publications come out without delay.

Cons: I would like to see more plugins in the Joomla library. There are only a few dozen, and even fewer good ones. In my opinion, the best library now is WordPress.

I wish I didn't have to access it as often, but whenever I did, I was able to figure things out pretty intuitively. As for the rest, I do think that I got good at it really fast, which gives it the 5 stars for ease of use. Although it had some amount of a learning curve, once it was mastered the system is really easy to update and use.

Cons: At first, I had to spend a fair amount of time trying to figure out the differences between hosting a website with Joomla.com and Joomla.org. This was the most annoying for me because one version is much easier and low maintenance than the other. Other than that, the free version does not allow for templates to be modified so I'm giving this an overall 2 stars.

Overall: I got a free, working website with almost no technical knowledge. However, this still needs a lot of work.

Pros: Joomla is a free and open source Content Management System (CMS) to create and publish blogs and websites for any one. There is a lot of extensions to customize joomla as per users requirement. It is available in all globally known languages. It has about 24 template designs for the selection of user. User can also customize the current template or can create an completely new theme.

Cons: Rather than Joomla is open source and free it have some cons. There is limited templates that are available at joomle official site while other CMS like Wordpress has a lot of free themes in their own directory.

Overall: I use joomle for sometime while I wast testing the different CMS for my blog I like its friendly control panel.
