Still my favourite CMS

5,0 7 dagen geleden Nieuw

Opmerkingen: Developed three major websites on it and supported two others. Always found it a pleasure to work with, with most functions supported out of the box and easy to hack if it needed to be extended or customised under the surface.

Pluspunten:

Incredibly powerful and extensible, and easy to hack into almost any configuration. Great support from the community and developer.

Minpunten:

Really not much - I wish I had a reason to use it more often! It's often hard to sell clients on Joomla vs something like Wordpress which they recognise more.

Website development with joomla is a breeze

5,0 2 maanden geleden Nieuw

Opmerkingen: My overall experience with Joomla has been good. Till date I manage about dozens of websites developed with Joomla.

Pluspunten:

Joomla makes it easy to manage website. With little knowledge in web developing, you can get it up and running in no time

Minpunten:

For non-technical people, there is a learning curve. But the extensive documentation from the website reduces the stress in managing content with it.

Creating Professional Ecommerce Secure Websites with Joomla!

5,0 vorige maand Nieuw

Opmerkingen: My overall experience with Joomla has been very positive. I have been using it for a few years now and am constantly impressed by its versatility, flexibility, and power. It is a great system for creating comprehensive websites that not only look professional but also offer advanced features that can be customised to meet the specific needs of any client or business. In terms of ease-of-use, Joomla is one of the best CMS systems available today. Its user interface is clean and intuitive, making it easy to create pages with various types of content such as text, images, videos etc., without needing to learn complex coding languages like HTML or CSS. Furthermore, there are numerous professionally designed templates available which can be used out-of-the box or modified according to users’ preferences in order to give the website a unique feel and look. When developing more advanced sites however—ones that require additional functionality beyond what comes “out of the box”—Joomla really shines due its massive library of extensions (over 7500). These extensions are developed by third parties as well as official developers such as Joomla themselves; thus providing an extensive range options when it comes to adding powerful features like social media integration, eCommerce solutions etc., while still being supported by some level of security assurance from their respective sources.

Pluspunten:

Joomla is widely used by hundreds of thousands of websites, small and large businesses alike, as it offers numerous advantages over other popular CMS options. Firstly, Joomla gives users the ability to effectively manage their website without any coding knowledge or technical experience thanks to its intuitive user interface and easy-to-use features. Secondly, it also provides great scalability allowing website owners to easily expand from a few pages to larger sites with ease. Thirdly, Joomla comes packed with powerful tools such as page editors for customizing webpages quickly and flexibly; data retrieval tools which make managing databases extremely simple; and multimedia support making adding images, videos or audio files effortless. Fourthly, this CMS even supports mobile devices so that you can keep your site up to date no matter where they are located. Lastly, Joomla has excellent security measures in place including multiple layers of protection against malicious attacks as well as regular updates ensuring your data remains safe at all times. Overall these benefits make Joomla one of the most attractive solutions available when looking for an effective way to build and manage websites today!"

Minpunten:

Joomla offers a great deal of flexibility in terms of customizing the look and feel of your website or blog. With its wide range of templates, themes and extensions you can easily create a unique design to fit your needs

A Tough CMS that Could Be Better

3,0 2 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Joomla is yet another CMS for me though, even if it was more or less an exploration to find a better application within its category. Overall, it's a tough one and I will need a passionate mindset to dive deeper into this software.

Pluspunten:

Joomla is becoming very useful for e-commerce solutions, considering the powerful extensions that are being built for it these days. And of course, as it is an open-source application it makes it easy to customize and extend to one's need. Not to forget it's also free too.

Minpunten:

Joomla didn't have much usability support compared to major players like WordPress and Drupal. Considering the fact that there were fewer extensions available to improve functionalities and most available ones were paid. So it wasn't a friendly application to explore then.

Joomla review

4,0 2 maanden geleden Nieuw

Pluspunten:

Joomla is an excellent open source content management system that is perfect for creating websites, blogs, and online stores. It is simple to use, has a vast selection of features, and is highly customizable, making it very flexible. You can use it to build any sort of website, from a small personal blog to a large corporate website. It is also very extensible, offering hundreds of third-party extensions that can be used to add further features.

Minpunten:

Joomla has some disadvantages, such as difficulty in modification and extension, especially for those with limited knowledge in coding. It can also be slow and resource-intensive, particularly on shared hosting plans. Additionally, there is an absence of modern visual design elements, as well as incompatibility with more recent technologies like HTML5 and CSS3.

4,0 2 maanden geleden Nieuw

Opmerkingen: It is a powerful and flexible CMS that is well-suited for creating dynamic websites and online applications. Its open-source nature, customizable features, and strong security make it an ideal choice

Still best overall CMS

5,0 2 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: I have been using Joomla since the time it was a mambo CMS. I have created a large number of websites since then and what I can say with certainty is that Joomla is still a better CMS than other opensource solutions. Joomla CMS is a great tool for creating business websites and portals with lots of articles and content. Most popular Joomla templates allow me to create module positions where I want. I can display the modules on the sub pages where I want. To create a multilingual website I don’t have to install additional extensions if I don’t want to. Thousands and thousands of great extensions, modules and templates are available to expand the capabilities of the CMS system.

Pluspunten:

I love being able to create a website without additional plug-in installations or extensions. Joomla core has built-in features and capabilities to make a simpler website. I like better visibility and management of articles and categories in administration. I like the ability to use multiple templates on one website. I like the ability to, for almost everything, make an override via the menu. And what I like most is that I have complete control over the website from start to finish.

Minpunten:

What I don’t like the most is that the process of upgrading to a new version can be problematic for people who have no experience with Joomla. I am not thinking here of the update process but of the upgrade. Eg. from Joomla 3 to Joomla 4. But the online community is great and always helps, and there are a number of instructions so everything can be solved even if you get stuck.

Want to build a website now? Use Joomla!

5,0 2 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Jommla is a web content management system that helped me a lot in my early career as a web designer, in publishing and managing web content, mainly because I had little knowledge on the subject at the time. Used for online stores, corporate blogs, news portals, service catalogs, among other formats. It is a CMS that does not require in-depth programming knowledge. With little knowledge of HTML and CSS, a lot of cool stuff can be done. It has many plugins and components that complement and facilitate the construction of online content. I am so grateful for all he has given me.

Pluspunten:

Jommla is easy to manage content online and solves everything without programming. There are many tutorials on youtube and communities that help each other to resolve any difficulties that may arise when developing web projects.

Minpunten:

It could have more native functions. There are endless possibilities, but they have to be added through components, modules and plugins.

Love the Joomla!

5,0 2 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Very good system - combines ease of use with a very professional look and feel to the end user experience.

Pluspunten:

I have been using this platform for many years and it is the easiest to use CMS system I have had the chance to try. Great template selections from many outlets and the Open Source aspect makes looking for tweaks easy.

Minpunten:

There are constant security updates that you need to be on top of and keeping the version current can be challenging with keeping certain Modules working properly - not a problem if you read up before making the updates.

‘Thanks to Joomla Community’

5,0 4 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Wouldn’t exaggerate. A community who believes that the web should be for every one, works tirelessly to afford that opportunity free of cost. Go get it and experience for yourself. Go to https://downloads.joomla.org/ and understand your limits or nolimits. Then just leave a note of appreciation @ Joomla.

Pluspunten:

Thanks to Joomla community we have open source CMS to build websites at free of cost. Imaging the cost we have to incur if we had to rely on a multinational SW developer? This community of developers have come together and given us an exceptional CMS in building a site be it personal or commercial but free of cost. All you need is a hosting plan (free or paid and in most, Joomla is included as the CMS together with WP etc.) and you can get going building your site but you may need some coding skills if you want to customize your site. Having said so, Joomla has its own resources even for an average person to learn through errors. ‘If you are keen, Joomla is lean’. Why worry, you don't need to pay for your trials and errors. There are tons of learning material available at https://training.joomla.org/, https://forum.joomla.org/, etc where Joomla community is behind you to help you in making your project get going. There are enough of layouts and extensions/plugins free and paid, choice is yours. Don’t ask questions about SEO, all built-in. No need to pay for third parties to bring your site to the front. Don’t get caught to advertising, and if you, you will end up paying for what is offered free at Joomla. Now don’t worry about where you come from and the language you speak. Joomla will speak FOR YOU. Now, try Joomla for the endless features and resources.

Minpunten:

Ideal for webmasters. That doesn’t mean you cannot utilize Joomla. Joomla is never downgraded. Its not an insult to Joomla community. But what I meant was for webmaters, the limit is beyond the sky.

Exceptional web developing software application!

4,0 5 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: 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.

Pluspunten:

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.

Minpunten:

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.

Joomla review

4,0 4 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Overall experience was pleasant. I do however favor other content management systems a little more based on functionality and ease of format, but still overall very positive.

Pluspunten:

I liked how organized and user friendly this content management system was. It was very easy to show my clients that they could help edit and change things on their own website instead of calling me every day to make simple changes that only take a couple minutes. Those couples minutes don’t really add up enough to pay out enough to compensate my time being used for free each time they were to call and ask about simple changes. The “what you see is what you get” functionality made this possible. I also liked that I could get into the backend of a website and control the coding instead of just using the “wysiwug” (what you see is what you get)

Minpunten:

What I liked least is that if a website didn’t maintain all the necessary updates and were stuck on a way older model, it would make it extremely difficult to jump and skip all the necessary updates to the newest one. I had one website that had never been updated to the newest joomla, running on a very old version, that made creating the website a nightmare and wasnt sure how to jump to the newest version without having to take a million steps in between.

Been a fan since 1.5

4,0 5 jaar geleden

Pluspunten:

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.

Minpunten:

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.

An Open Source Classic- but not for everyone

5,0 2 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: In my opinion, Joomla! is still a tool for geeks, who prefer functionality over aesthetics. If you want to exercise full control over your website, from the hosting to the design, this is one of the best choices on the market. Your site can easily be adapted and expanded thanks to a myriad of plugins or extensions. I personally prefer giving up control to have less hassle with the developing part, and prefer a smoother look.

Pluspunten:

I started using Joomla! 3.1 when I did a course on Open Source Systems whilst unemployed. We were able to choose between Wordpress and Joomla!- and I chose Joomla! because I was already using Blogger, and knew that WP was somewhat similar. I liked the fact that the backend was fairly easy to use for the actual writing part- optimal for beginners. This was similar to what I was used at writing blogposts. I liked that there are many plugins available that integrate smoothly- which tends to be a big problem in Wordpress (many bugs).

Minpunten:

For a fair beginner, setting up a server was rather challenging. Also, I am a bit of a design geek- and the "look" of the platform (something I know doesn't deter most programmers) hurt my taste back then. I noticed that this has since improved with version 4, and I am aware that I am being superficial here, and probably not part of the target group- who have different priorities, like usability, extendability, speed etc.

In many ways better than Wordpress

5,0 6 jaar geleden

Pluspunten:

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…

Minpunten:

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 Robust and Extensible

4,0 6 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: 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.

Pluspunten:

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.

Minpunten:

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.

Best Software or CMS for the Web Development

5,0 3 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: I use Joomla in my few websites because it's a free and open-source content management system. I have created a number of online applications using Joomla. Joomla is really a professional CMS and for me, the importance of Joomla is too much. I really love this CMS. I always install first using the localhost, then I create the website offline with Joomla then I transfer the content from the local server to the remote server.

Pluspunten:

If you want to be a web developer, first learn the Joomla and then create your personal or business websites with Joomla. Because Joomla is a flexible platform for the website creators. You can build professional websites and powerful online applications using Joomla. Joomla is a search engine friendly and mobile-friendly content management system.

Minpunten:

There are lots of benefits and features of Joomla. I am using Joomla for last few years, and I never faced any problem in Joomla. For me, SEO is very important for my websites, so Joomla always helps me. According to me, there are no cons, Joomla is perfect.

The best and Awesome Content Management System

5,0 3 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: My overall experience with Joomla is really nice, awesome and incredible. I have designed a number of websites using this unique content managment system. The software has helped me to build mobile friendly websites using different templates. I have also designed a few blogs with Joomla. For me, Joomla is very important regarding the web development. Because I can design professional websites without the coding. I have also done on page optimization using the different extensions of Joomla in my websites.

Pluspunten:

Joomla is one of the best software for the website creators. The dashboard of Joomla is really easy to understand and use. There are lots of free extensions and templates you can use in Joomla. Templates can give a professional look to your website. Joomla is Search Engine Friendly so the all pages links of your website can index in the search engine very fast. You can easily create meta title and description of your article and pages. So if you want to build your website without the knowledge of programming languages then Joomla is good for this purpose.

Minpunten:

There are few paid extensions or there are a number of extensions, that doesn't offer full features to the beginner users. I think so these extensions should offer more features to the free users so they can also implement more good things in the websites. I really like the all other features and functions of Joomla.

Content Management System for Building your Websites

4,0 3 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: It is multilingual as it is beneficial for those who do not know the English language. More than 75 languages are supported in it. You can use it on any device from anywhere as it is a responsive website. It is updating its functions frequently along with their many useful features. It consists of two-factor authentication as security is essential when you are creating a web-based platform. It welcomes volunteers throughout the world to contribute their knowledge in it.

Pluspunten:

It allows you to build influential websites and application. Thousands of free extensions, templates and themes are embedded in it which helps the user in customizing their websites and applications as needed by their desires. Multiple platforms are using it for fulfilling their purposes which includes corporate websites, portals, websites of small businesses, intranet, extranet, nonprofit websites, educational websites, family homepages, e-commerce, online reservations, websites for schools etc.

Minpunten:

If you compare it with other platforms it consists of limited functions and options otherwise it has various useful tools embedded in it. It may slow down your website if your website is large in size and have too many visitors. It has a variety of plugins and modules but some of them are not free and you have to pay for them.

Joomla, a sunsetting open source has-been

2,0 2 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Joomla was OK when we entered the CMS space 12 years ago. Now it is just horrid, overall experience is dated and pathetic.
A massively frustrating and mostly dissapointing experience with the community support pages.
As of May of 2021, we've abandoned the platform, as it appears to be dying a slow and painful death.

Pluspunten:

Powerful backend tools and MySQL management, solid from the admin of the CMS itself. Decent conternt manmagement tools.

Minpunten:

Terrible, outdated UI. Templating system is intuitive - the module based architecture is almost unmanageable and SOOOO time consuming to make even the most simple template changes. Wooly and unpredictable stable of 3rd party extension/components. There are 1000s of really poor offerings, many abandoned by the original devs, but still listed. Only a handful of very solid offerings to extend the core Joomla functionality. No full number release version anywhere on the horizon. The 4.0 beta has been out since February 2021. It took them years to arrive at the beta. Search the Joomla.org website for "roadmap" and first relevant page comes up from 20 October 2005. The Board of Directors seems ever-shifting, unfocused and not unified.

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

4,0 5 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: 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.

Pluspunten:

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.

Minpunten:

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.
