What do you like best?

I used Joomla to build some personal blogs. It was pretty straightforward to use the cms. The extensions and templates were easy to customize. Joomla helped me in many ways especially it saved me from spending a thousand bucks on the web developer.

Joomla is a user-friendly Content Management System (CMS). It helps literally anyone to build a website with no technical knowledge. I did not know any coding the first time I used Joomla. I was able to build a personal blog instantly. Moreover, it provides users the option of creating Joomla customized domain names and free hosting for their website.

Joomla is extremely easy to customize. It comes with built-in extensions and templates. The templates help decide how a website will look, while the extension enables you to add more functionalities and features to your site.

Joomla is reasonably secured. They always update their security patches, extensions, and templates. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Joomla Overview

What is Joomla?

Joomla! is a free and open-source content management system (CMS) for publishing web content. Over the years Joomla! has won several awards. It is built on a model–view–controller web application framework that can be used independently of the CMS that allows you to build powerful online applications. Joomla! is one of the most popular website softwares, thanks to its global community of developers and volunteers, who make sure the platform is user friendly, extendable, multilingual, accessible, responsive, search engine optimized and so much more.

What do you like best?

The ability to host multiple sites and content for clients and internal teams simultaneously on one platform. We were exploring complete ownership of our platform, with all the tools we needed for performance and integration, as well as managing our teams, and Joomla seemed ideal to try this out on, along with Drupal. Within a couple of hours, it was cleat to us that Joomla was the simpler of the two platforms. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The learning curve is a bit much to take on, especially from an Admin role, but I really don't see how you can get around it. The setup seems to compartmentalized but as a small business, the training time was tedious, but that wasn't because of a lack of material. It just seemed like the training was a project of it's own accord. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The advantage of Joomla in addition to being free is that it offers facilities to people who have little knowledge in the area of web page programming. It is something intuitive and with many options available to create a very complete basic blog. It also has a very good administrator panel where you can manage the pages that your site has. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Despite all its advantages, it has many weak points to consider, starting with the fact that even though it has many widgets and plugins, its repertoire is not really that wide. It is also not recommended if you want to create a professional website with a large number of options and its SEO optimization is not very advanced such as other software that offers the same service. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This program is free and it is ideal for those who have little knowledge in web page programming and wish to create a web page or a basic blog under PHP code. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Despite being a basic option, it has always helped me when the need arises to create a simple web page or a basic blog, since Joomla was one of the first CMS that I started using a few years ago and I still see it very Useful. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Joomla is very powerful and great content management system. I really like it for my complex projects. I must say that the extension and modules are very powerful and easy to understand, you'll learn to control very quickly. The whole web development process is simple and easy while on Joomla. Joomla dashboard is pretty simple and neat and clean interface, you'll learn to manage the end product very fast due to clean GUI of this magical CMS. I. Really love the themes customizations as its simple yet you get powerful editing tools handy. For me it's my second best CMS after WordPress or I must say for complex projects it's the one and only tool I ever used. It's really easy for me when it comes to search engine optimization, e-commerce solution on the other hand you'll use powerful extensions for free. It's really easy to track content while on Joomla. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

So far I am unable to spot any issue with this beautiful and powerful Content Management System, there are few paid modules but believe me they are value for the money. As I mentioned earlier that I mostly use it for my complex and larg projects therefore it's bit heavy for simple and small scale web projects. One another issue is limited customization options.
