Which CMS suits my requirements best?
This takes some research and basic familiarization with each system. Each one has a demo site that can give you an idea of their functionality in the Front-End and Back-End or Administrator area. Each having feedback and reviews from current users and developers.
We can help you short cut the detail and experimentation. To give you an idea of popularity and usage from the number of downloads and plugins written, the following has been gathered and summarized and purely for comparative reasons.
• WordPress – 140 million Downloads – 2,000+ Free Themes – 27,000+ plugins – Best used from personal blogs to mid-sized and corporate websites – Easy to manage – SEO natively friendly – Masses of options
• Drupal – 15 million Downloads – 1,800+ Free Themes – 24,000+ Plugins – The first CMS released in 2001 – The best choice for complex data and large user, community based sites – Light framework producing quick response times.
• Joomla – 30 million Downloads – 900+ Free Themes – 7,000+ plugins – Created in 2005 – Popular choice for a variety of e-Commerce plugin options – Not known for being overly SEO friendly, especially natively.
They are all good systems and can make development of a great blog or website simple, with little to no computer experience. It does pay to have some understanding and if you don’t have it already you will gather it along the way.
