Joomla Review

Joomla is an open source content management system. It serves as the framework for developing web pages and is written in the PHP programming language, using the MySQL database to store the information. Joomla stemmed from Mambo and is very similar to it, but with a few upgrades in it’s performance abilities. If you are considering Joomla for creating and managing your web page, there are a few things you should know about it. Joomla is a free software and widely used, with both advantages and disadvantages.

Joomla was created very similar to Mambo, so that programmers could use the same add-ons. The main difference between the two companies is that Joomla was designed with some improvements to the template system. Also, a new version of Joomla is constantly being created, which means that the product will continue to improve and security will be heightened.

Joomla is designed so that modular extensions are easily integrated. This means that as a web page creation tool, Joomla makes it easy to add applications and features to the back bone that they provide. These extensions are often referred to as “plugins” and give new functionality and design to your site. In addition to “plugins,” Joomla works with various components to achieve such tasks as backing up your website, translating content, and creating search engine friendly URLs. Joomla also allows for you to insert custom codes, so the possibilities are endless. Many of the top web hosting companies such as HostMonster and BlueHost offer Joomla as part of their web hosting plans.

Although there are many great features to Joomla, there are several areas where it’s users have seen room for improvement. One complaint that is commonly made is that Joomla has to be installed for each individual web site that is being created. There are also problems with programming while using Joomla for a language that is read from right to left. Joomla does not have bidirectional language templates. Also, Joomla is lacking built in granular user access control. Although, the next version of Joomla is supposed to have it.

Joomla is a great open source content management system and gives you a strong foundation for creating your web pages. However, choosing a content management system should be based on meeting the individual needs of your web site.
