I have seen some questions by people asking which CMS is the best. With so many CMS systems on the market, it is really hard to know which one will work for you. I’m only going to focus on two of the most popular CMS systems.

As you might already know, Joomla and WordPress are likely the most popular in the CMS world today. There are some people that will tell you WordPress is not a CMS system. With the right plugins, you can turn this system into a CMS that will do just what you need it to do. WordPress I think is one of the most hard CMS systems.

Not only will WordPress provide a top notch blog, you easily be able to customise a WordPress theme to fit your wants. I also want to say WordPress is very better documented. The community is huge! I now want to move on to Joomla. I think Joomla is a great CMS system. I’ve done a few sites with Joomla and consider it’s pretty powerful. There’s a steeper learning curve with Jomla, but once you have successfully learned the system, it will pay off fast.

I think Joomla would be great for a community driven internet site. There are many plugins available for Joomla that will allow you to build a user community. While I think this is also possible with WordPress, I think the Joomla components are a lot more powerful. If you need to port over a custom Joomla theme that should not be a problem. There are many helpful tutorials on how to port your theme over. All in all, I think both of these systems will provide a solid CMS for your website. You may wish to test out both systems and see which system will work best for your project.
