What is joomla ?• Joomla is an award-winning content management system (CMS), which enables you to build Web sites and powerful online applications. Many aspects, including its ease- of-use and extensibility, have made Joomla the most popular Web site software available. Best of all, Joomla is an open source solution that is freely available to everyone.

Why use Drupal over Wordpress?• Wordpress was designed only to be a blog with some easy add-ons.• Drupal was designed to be more of a generalist: it’s for making ‘anything’ and is far more robust.• Wordpress could be the better choice for blogs since it is better at being a blog than Drupal. This is something of debate.• Wordpress is still a sound choice of CMS for SEO and security; so if wordpress satisfies a simpler project’s requirements then by all means use it- it is easier and faster to set up than Drupal.• Wordpress is not designed to be highly scalable to many simultaneous users, nor does it have flexible roles, permissions, extensible content types, nor does it have plentiful well-tested, quality add-ons. It has a few and a lot of really poor plugins.• Caveat: Trying to force Wordpress to do something it cannot do easily with very popular plug-ins can be worse than suffering the learning curve of Drupal.
Why use Drupal over Joomla? (or other CMS)• It has superior session handling for a CMS.• It has superior security.• It is a more consistent, reliable and flexible framework for development.• It is considered better for SEO from our research.• It uses a ‘separation of concerns’ architecture to cleanly and consistently separate structure, function, form, and presentation in layers (ie: php from data as db/xml, layout and presentation as html and css).• It heavily uses ‘defaults overrides’ in code in the form of hooks and in themes in the form of templates. This makes it extremely flexible.• Other CMS’es do a very very bad job of at least one of the above.
Downsides to the Druup• Drupal has a steeper learning curve than wordpress or Joomla.• Drupal and it’s developers make no excuse for this fact- it is a robust, flexible tool• That said, the drupal community is constantly addressing usability and user-experience issues because they want the industry market share.
