    I'd go Wordpress. In my opinion, its easier, better supported, lots of free themes available, and SEO friendly.

    Ohh, I'd be glad to share my personal experiences why Joomla sucks!




    Documents are grouped by a Category Systems

    The Interface sucks - Half the time the plugins dont even work or load correctly for me. (In all Browsers)

    It's a blogging Platform (Build your own PHP Framework)

    Developing for it completely sucks!


    I just dont like it. Just like Wordpress.

    Wordpress is much easier in my opinion. I tried Joomla a long time back and I couldn't understand it that much.

    Yes Wordpress is easier to learn the Joomla. HOWEVER Wordpress is a blogging platform and Joomla is a website platform so they are so different that it depends on what your clients needs, not what is easier.

    I've worked with both, Wordpress is quicker to set up but Joomla has a world of extensions. The clincher for me is my clients find Wordpress much easier to update, Joomla is enormously flexible and in being so creates a rather complicated UI. Sometimes you've got to think about who will do the updates and lean in that direction.

    Wordpress would come very easy to use but if you like to be more flexible to creating website and blog go and learn joomla. But if you like to spend your time developing website using PHP I would suggest use wordpress instead it's more likely to be okay.

    If your customer has no experience in coding then you're just looking at headaches and time needed to help him/her setup and modify Joomla. Only use if you are after advanced community features or plan on expanding in the future.

    If they just want a basic blog/content site then go with Wordpress. I find there's more community help available and a more established resource area with many free templates and easy additions.

    I started with Mambo to joomla to Word Press to Drupal.

    Today I mostly use Drupal. I do use Word press but it depends on how I want to present the site.

    Base on where seach is going I would use WP over joomla becuase out of the box WP is much better.

    Well! I have a joomla site that someone built for me, but Ithink word press is easier to manage. I'm not a designer savvy. But instead of building your own joomla templates, you can probably see at artisteer

    Wordpress. Joomla is just one big mess. It's not that I don't understand how to work with it, but it's just too clogged.

    I agree that Joomla can become a pain (a micromanagement nightmare).

    Just like Drupal and Wordie it has it's uses--so don't write it off because it's not all perfect

    I have used WordPress and there are many great templates out there to make it look less like a Blog and more like a Website.
    for me, adding/editing posts is much easier in wordpress.
    Joomla seems much more complicated and you have to understand what goes where with sections and categories and articles and menus.

    I would say try both and go with the one that supplies the template that would work the best with minimal changes to it.

    My advice is not to reinvent the wheel. Find a good template which can be adapted to most needs with logos and css changed.

    Absolutely Wordpress. There is a theme called athualpa that is completely customizable with no need to know code.

    Joomla is powerful, but the admin section can be very daunting for users!

    Personally I find WordPress is a perfect fit for any CMS based websites (I have been using it for well over 4 years, so I would say that!). Everyone has the favourite CMS, but WordPress is easy to learn and the template system is very simple and easy to customise.

    For instance, to create a new page template, just duplicate the 'page.php' or 'index.php' file in your theme folder, rename your duplicate file to something like 'my-special-template.php' and you only need a PHP comment at the top of your page like:

    PHP Code:
    <?php
    /*
    Template Name: My Special Page
    */
    ?>
    Save this into your theme folder, and when you create a page you can select 'My Special Page' under the page template option. Obviously, you can now customise this new custom page template to your hearts content!

    You can make very complex, sophisticated CMS systems with WordPress if you know what you are doing using custom fields and taxonomy along with the HUGE selection of plugins available that do all manner of cool stuff (PS - its easy to write your own too!)

    Oh - and don't forget that WordPress now has a fantastic 'click to update' function to update all core files - no FTP! That goes for plugins and themes too, so no more FTP... couldn't be easier to manage and maintain!

    Like I mention earlier to someone. Choose Wordpress. If your a beginner in html wordpress is the best to practice.
