    Joomla vs. Wordpress, Anyone with experience?

    Looking to test the waters of a CMS...

    Anyone doing this now??

    CMS
    A CMS, or content management system, is software that is generally installed to a personal or business web space and is used to control, organize, and publish dynamic collections of content, such as web pages, widgets/extensions, images, forms, forums, and other forms of media. The choice to use a CMS over traditionally designing and managing a website usually arises from the desire to have better organization, save time, and allows people with little experience in web design to create and manage their own websites.

    Wordpress, from my experience a few years ago (I don't know about now) is more like a blogging engine. Of course this may have changed.

    Joomla is a great CMS, it has lots of community support and you can do just about anything you want with it. Another popular CMS is Drupal, which I think MTV used for a while.

    I've used both Drupal and Joomla, but I prefer Joomla. It's very easy to get a site up and running with it, and if you don't know much html or coding, Joomla is the way to go.

    I've never used WordPress but I've done several sites with Joomla and it does have a lot of nice features and is easy to setup. There are lots of add-on modules that you can install and really make your site look nice.
