    Drupal vs Joomla - Which CMS is Better?

    Actually, i've changed my mind. I'm planning to have quite some content on that niche. Say about 50 pages of just content should cover all up since the niche is small.
    So i've decided that i may stick to Wordpress or experiment with some CMS, probably Joomla since i've never used it before.

    You may want to try using drupal instead of joomla.

    Definatly agree, I'd go with drupal instead of joomla....mainly for all the security pproblems joomla tends to have.

    I don't have much or infact any knowledge of PHP(i can understand the code but can't code myself since i've never learnt it). So i guess Joomla is more user friendly and Drupal is more developer friendly.

    I've tried Joomla and it was too complicated for me. Drupal is much easier to add content and set up navigation. You can also create custom template files to modify page types. You should be able to find tutorials for what you are trying to do and in the end would be simplier than joomla.

    Advantages of Drupal

    Drupal has a superior back-end
    Editing content is simple
    Human readable URLs
    Search engine friendly
    Add-on modules are higher quality and free
    No SEO out of the box

    Hi,

    Wow! Joomla hard. The first time we disagree on something. Joomla was the first site I worked on.

    I found it to be easy to run. I have never used Drupal.

    After the boss closed down the site and store. Is when I started my WP site I was told that was the best for blog and I do agree but WP is much harder to learn for me then Joomla was.

    I was using Joomla and trying to modify an extension. It was too much of a bother and I shifted to drupal. It's much easier to set up your layout with drupal moving blocks.

    You can also make major changes to types of pages by creating a custom file called [yourcontenttype].tpl.php file

    Joomla is easy to add content. Did you change the template?

    Wordpress can be tricky to mod a template. But, it's the best blogging platform in my opinion.

    Hi,

    No I did no work on the template it was made by a local web designer from the town. All I did was ad post admin the forum and handle the sales. Learnt all I could about site promotions.

    You sure are right about the WP templates not forgiving at all. But I am learning how to slowly.
