Joomla Editor's Review

Nowadays, most people use Joomla, Wordpress or Drupal to make their websites. Creating websites by the use of CMSs is an easy yet effective way as one does not require to code heavily. We’ll be talking about Joomla, a powerful Content Management System, and its positive and negative points and is it really useful enough for creating websites?

Installing Joomla is like a walk in the park. You just have to download Joomla, just a few Megabytes, upload the files to your installation directory and point your browser to the installation file. If you are a newbie and don’t want to waste your time by messing around with settings, it is recommended that you install Joomla with sample content checkbox enabled. You’d also have to remove your installation directory after installation due to security issues.

User interface was not best of the world. You’d have to mess around with plenty of options to change, edit or add new content. It was very unconventional and a little bit hard if you aren’t familiar with any of the Content Management Systems. There are many extensions and modules available for Joomla, but it can be time consuming to arrange them on the main page. There are many tweaking options and maybe that is what makes it so time consuming and hard to use and manage.

Customizing Joomla is what it is famous for. There are tons of modules and extensions available to customize Joomla. Adding icing on icing on the cake, there are too many styles both free and paid available on the World Wide Web. You can also code your own template, if you have good knowledge of php. Each template of Joomla is different than the other and that really gives a boost to its flexibility.

Help and support offered by Joomla officially and through unofficial Joomla and other programming discussion board is more than enough. You can get answer of most of your questions by browsing knowledgebase or by watching a few videos.

Positive Points:
  - Many customization options available.
  - Tons of modules and themes available.

Negative Points:
  - Not a newbie friendly CMS.
  - Hard navigation and customization.

Conclusion:
Joomla may not be easy to use, but it gives you plenty of options to play with. If you are a little experienced, you may not find Joomla as hard as you’d expect. For heavy and dynamic websites, Joomla is definitely a way to go. It is definitely not recommended for blogs and similar kind of websites.
4/5
