Joomla! Content Management System (CMS)

I am in the process to completely overhaul my company site. It was developed some years ago by a Webdesigner, who used Adobe GoLive, as I recall.

I have analyzed what tools/apps there are which would suit my needs. I have come to the conclusion that Joomla!, a CMS, will offer what I'm am looking for.

Anyone who has experience with Joomla!? Anyone who can give me advise on using Joomla!?

I actually set up a joomla site the other day. Its fairly simple to use, easier then phpnuke i think. I'm still getting used to it, as with everything there is some time to figure out where stuff is hidden (:

Hi sorrow, cool, cool, finally getting one to know on this forum who knows Joomla! Any particular issues you want to share with me from which I can benefit? What was/were the major reason(s) to decide for Joomla! for you? For what kind of business are you setting up Joomla!? Or is it a private site? Which version are you using?

Drupal is also very good as a CMS. The key question is what sort of content are you seeking to manage and what functionality are you trying to build into your site. Will it have a forum, social networking profile, RSS feeds?

Its my pleasure to assist you for joomla.

1) Download the joomla Package and install XAMPP/WAMPP/LAMPP(according to your usage WAMPP for window users LAMPP for Linux users).

2) Now follow 7 steps procedure to insall joomla in xampp.

3) Visit the site through "visit site" link in the top right corner of joomla installation window.

Now you can see the inbuilt template and see by manipulating the templates through Administrator panel.

Re: Joomla! Content Management System (CMS)

I taught myself to build a simple Joomla site, it is relatively simple, but plan on spending a bunch of time figuring it out.

The real trick with Joomla is getting good with designing and refining your templates.

Re: Joomla! Content Management System (CMS)

Joomla is supposedly more design orientated but I found myself annoyed at all those sample files, btw recommended in the installer to easier set up things, that I tried out drupal for my own site

Re: Joomla! Content Management System (CMS)

I totally agree with sanjay. Drupal is a lot more user friendly, faster to understand and easier to customize. You can easily define sections in the page to reproduce your desired theme. For me, drupal has been far more helpful than joomla.

I prefer wordpress since it supports great customization and an easy to use dashboard. Wordpress is highly recommended for people with less coding skills. Joomla is something advanced than wordpress.
