Transcript of "Drupal & Joomla & WordPress.. Oh My! A quick round-up of the three most popular CMS options available."

  1. 1. Drupal & Joomla & WordPress Oh My! A quick round-up by Brian Layman
  2. 2. Drupal - Pros 1. Oldest of the three started in 2001 2. Very powerful & developer friendly 3. Enterprise friendly - from the release cycle to the version control and capabilities, it will seem familiar to many enterprises 4. It is a very stable platform.
  3. 3. Drupal - Cons 1. Steepest learning curve. If you like many complicated options and lots of reading, as many devs do, Drupal is for you. 2. Very few free plugins. The enterprise root means you pay for everything - and price means quality. 3. Theming options are sparse. You will have to hire a quality developer to get it to look like it wasn't designed a decade ago.
  4. 4. Joomla - Pros 1. The interface is viewed by many as professional and polished. 2. There are many extensions (aka plugins) available for each version of Joomla that meet many specific needs. 3. Built as a CMS from the start. 4. Shortly after its release it increased in popularity beyond Drupal and WordPress. Though WordPress has the limelight now, Joomla is still active having just released ver. 3.
  5. 5. Joomla - Cons 1. There is a learning curve. You will not be able to jump in and start writing articles until you have explored around for a while. 2. SEO capabilities do not match up with the other two systems. 3. Limited permission control for users. 4. Moving between major versions of Joomla incurs a development cost as both your theme and features will not be compatible with newer releases. This causes security issues.
  6. 6. WordPress - Pros 1. A blogging tool evolved into CMS. This means concepts like multiple authors with varying permissions are built in. 2. Easy interface 3. Most commonly used CMS 4. Frequently updated 5. Extremely flexible & feature rich 6. Many themes & plugins both free and premium 7. Low cost of operation 8. Coder Friendly
  7. 7. WordPress - Cons 1. The emphasis on blogging is clear. CMS is its second function. 2. The popularity does mean it is a popular target for attacks, so you need to keep it up to date. 3. There are a lot of people who do it as a hobby. So quality of plugins and themes vary. 4. It doesn't cost anything, so it is viewed by some companies as not worth anything.
