Joomla CMS is a free web-based content management system. It enables easy creation and editing of content for websites, blogs, discussion boards, product pages, and e-commerce websites. It is extremely versatile and can be customized in a variety of ways to suit various business needs.
With the ease of installation, installation of Joomla CMS is possible by anyone who has access to the Internet and the right software. It also needs no special skills or experience to use it.
It is the most popular open source CMS available today. A host of features makes it stand out from the crowd.
Site owners can configure multiple sites in just one click of a button. Users can add multiple themes to customize the look and feel of their website.
While installation of Joomla CMS is extremely simple, the support is almost non-existent. There are several third party programs available on the Internet that claim to help you install Joomla, but it is best to go through the instructions provided with the software.
Another nice feature is the ability to create multiple users with different roles. It is very easy to set up a new user role. The code is quite self explanatory, so there are very few pitfalls.
On the downside, it is somewhat expensive for the consumer to use Joomla CMS. It is one of the most expensive open source CMS systems available.
It is possible to customize Joomla CMS to provide an attractive look to the websites. It is easy to change page headers, frames, shortcodes, menus, and many other elements to meet the needs of the user.
Unlike most other open source CMS systems, Joomla CMS is very customizable. If you are a developer and you want to add in your own features, you can easily do so.
It is not difficult to get Joomla CMS certified, as it is considered by many to be an advanced CMS. The user interface is reasonably intuitive.
Although the program is free, the license does allow for modification. However, the license does not provide any help if you want to release your modified version as a commercial product.
