You may be thinking “Why should I choose Joomla for my content management system?”
Well, why not? Joomla! is one of the most popular CMS (content management systems) out in the market at the moment. It is based on the PHP language meaning it can be used in tandem with your PHP based website smoothly. The Joomla! Extension Directory offers more than 6,000 commercial and free extensions that you can use or you can turn to other sources to get even more extensions if you prefer. Joomla! has also been awarded the Pact Publishing Open Source Content Management System Award three times so you know that it does have clout in the CMS world.
How does Joomla! stand to help your business? One way is that it can be easily installed because many web hosts provide strong support to the Joomla! web applications. Some web hosts may even specialize in Joomla! so it may be relatively easy to find the right instructions for installation and maintenance of any Joomla! web applications you have in mind. If a system is easy to install and maintain then you have less to worry about and you can let Joomla! do what it is supposed to do (which is manage your website content for you). If you are not certain how to make Joomla! web applications, you might want to hire Web Publishing Systems (WPS)
to do this type of work for you as you get to know more about the system.
You will probably need to use some extensions to make Joomla! more useful for your website. Extensions can be components, plugins, templates, modules, and languages. Content management will involve monitoring activity of every component of your website – no matter what that component is. This means Joomla! will be in charge of your videos, audio files, simple text, videos, photos and other important content. Because, Joomla! is a very easy to use CMS, you can probably learn how to use it fast. On the other hand, if you require more guidance then you can turn to Web Publishing Systems (WPS) to teach you and work for you at the same time.
Take note that the CMS is not just for business applications. Even non-profit institutions and individuals can rely on this CMS to make their websites easier to manage. So whether you are running a commercial site, a personal blog, or have non-profit activities on your website, Joomla! may be the CMS you need.
