WordPress vs Joomla : Which CMS Should You Choose?

3.5

index   While there is a large number of Content Management Systems (CMS) to choose from, few CMS platforms are more popular and more widely used than WordPress and Joomla. Some wrongly believe that Joomla and WordPress are popular simply because they are the oldest. In reality they are neither the oldest nor the pioneers of the CMS space. In fact, there are plenty of CMS platforms that existed before the turn of the millennium. WordPress didn’t rear its head until 2003, and Joomla didn’t show up until around 2005.

The popularity of either platform is largely due to its ease of use. The birth of the widely accepted open source CMS has given millions of users all around the power to create their own dynamic websites. Even some giant brands have turned to open source content management to streamline the web content management process.

In this post, we aim to give you the information you need to make the decision between the Joomla or WordPress CMS.

Showcase Of Web Design In Israel


What’s Unique About Israeli Web Design?

Here are some other issues that designers face here (and, I imagine, in most places outside the US, Canada and Western Europe):

  • Websites must work in legacy versions of IE (though IE6 is finally almost out). Israeli business owners emphasize this more than getting their websites to work in Safari or Firefox.
  • There is a strong liking for Flash-based designs… it must be a cultural thing.
  • Little value is given to Web designers (and those in related fields, such as copywriting — although marketers and SEO people seem to being doing okay), and many designers are not taking back their profession.
  • Clients care more about cost than usability and standards.
  • CSS-based designs are not standard, and many of the people responsible for hiring are not aware of it.
  • Big agencies are usually asked to make conventional designs, and although they do quite impressive branding work, the websites they turn out are behind the times. Because they are launched by such big companies, the websites succeed “in spite of themselves,” leading many to believe that this is the formula for wildly successful websites: for Agency X to do our website the way they did for Company Y.
