Once Popular CMS but Lacks Intuitiveness and is Behind the Competition

  • October 15, 2021
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
It is PHP based platform which does make it compatible with many web hosts and is fairly easy to install on the server as the default base platform. It has been around for a while so, there are still a lot of theme templates available for it on the market. It does attempt to have some content management tools aimed at novices, at least in comparison to more complex frameworks like Drupal.
What do you dislike?
Joomla has historically lacked the intuitive nature that other platforms like Craft or WordPress have, for the standard website owner admin user. Simple tasks like navigation menu management require two or three extra steps to achieve. The organization of content and modules is confusing to a non-developer, which makes the developer-to-end-user relationship difficult. It has also been difficult to upgrade from version to version. It is not easy for an average website owner or entry level administrator to maintain the site, which makes for serious headaches on security vulnerabilities and a bigger expense when you do need to upgrade and overhaul it.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Unfortunately, I no longer recommend Joomla due to the challenges faced by most website owners to maintain it. It does not solve their problems.

Awsome Opensource CRM

  • October 15, 2021
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
I like the open source that allows me to configure and re-do code to fit my own purpose. It is easy to use and easy to setup.
The system also works with articles in a great way.
What do you dislike?
The fact that it is easy to modify also makes it hard to maintain. It is almost imporssible to jump in after another coder has modified files.
Not really as userfriendly as other CRM but it really does not matter as it is so userfriendly as it is.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
It is easy and fast to get a site published with Joomla and with such userbase it makes it easy to find solutions to problems.
The price is also a point - The base is free but certain plugins you have to pay a fair amount for. Cheap and easy.

Joomla - A free Open Source CMS built on PHP

  • October 14, 2021
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Joomla is an excellent Content Management System built on PHP. One can easily make websites using Joomla. It provides a great environment and easy to use GUI for building websites/ web applications. One can change the content of the websites on the fly through the administrator console. Third party components / plug-ins are easily available and can be easily embedded in websites built using Joomla. Joomla is very secure when it comes to web application security.
What do you dislike?
Joomla is a great CMS, however heavy customization becomes difficult in Joomla as one need to learn the Joomla coding to make required changes. Joomla however is very reliable and robust CMS. The website components can be easily deployed and maintained. Also Joomla is easy to learn when it comes to operating from front end.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Joomla being a easy to use CMS, it is being used commonly by majority of developers. One can build web applications/ websites like discussion forums, galleries, user communities and e-commerce sites easily using Joomla. Joomla is a free Open Source CMS built on PHP that provides capabilities for giving privileges or rights to different users for operating the web applications accordingly from front end. User community support for Joomla is also good.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
I would surely recommend others to use Joomla as it is a great CMS for building websites on PHP.

Good solution for massive websites (journalism, publishing)

  • August 13, 2021
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Very efficient (probably more so than WordPress) for managing large websites with 1,000+ pages and lots of pieces of content.
What do you dislike?
The WYSIWYG editor leaves a lot to be desired.

Publishing a large website with 15,000+ pages of content, Joomla allows for a nice structure/categorization and the internal search function is excellent.

A Proficient Web-Based Platform for Publishing Content on the Internet

  • July 24, 2021
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
The best feature of Joomla is the flexibility it offers to alter the website based on changing needs of the owners and the setup is simple to configure in no time. Another attractive feature is the multilingual support with enhanced translation to create a website without any language limitations. Many inbuilt extensions are available on this platform to improve the website.
What do you dislike?
Security breaches and lack of compatibility are the two drawbacks I have experienced in Joomla.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Joomla is open-source e-commerce oriented software and hence I find it more accessible to publish the desired content of my website via the tool. The other benefits I have realized with this adept tool are its super-fast performance and easy menu generation feature. The plethora of extensions within this tool makes it easy for developers to exhibit the functionalities in an interactive way.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
If you are looking to build a power-packed website then I would definitely recommend trying Joomla as it offers multiple features with the best support.

An effective support for the creation of excellent web sites in a short period of time.

  • July 22, 2021
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
The most remarkable thing about this tool, or what I liked the most, is the minimal difficulty it generates when creating different web pages and how customizable it is. It is easy to use and takes very little time to develop sites and web, puts users' fingertips everything they need, has a good customer service and online there are many illustrated and explained tutorials of its functions.
What do you dislike?
It is not difficult to use once you get used to its interface and functions, but I must admit that at the beginning, it took us a bit of work to get familiar with the software, mainly because its interface is not the most intuitive.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
By using Joomla, we have started building excellent websites and web applications for different purposes within my organization. It takes little time to understand how it works and has been essential to get several projects up and running on the web in a short time. Its features, templates, and more make everything easier for our entire team to work with.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
It is a simple and intuitive software with few applications that support web development; it also has extraordinary ease; I recommend it; you will have the opportunity to create excellent web applications in short periods. Joomla is worth it.
