Wordpress vs Joomla 2013 [INFOGRAPHIC]

Posted by on in Web Design

Joomla! and Wordpress could be considered two of the biggest rivals on the Internet. Wordpress and Joomla! are the Coke and Pepsi of the CMS world. 

Content Management Systems (CMS) revolutionised the Internet as we knew it. They lowered the extremely high technical barrier which prevented those with less technical expertise from having a presence on the web.  We have now been through many years of CMS development and two, maybe three if you're a Drupal fan, content management systems have emerged as being the cream of the crop. 

While there are many smaller CMSs that do a fantastic job for certain purposes and people with certain levels of technical know-how, Wordpress and Joomla! emerged as the two that have made the most impact worldwide. 

For many, the decision of which CMS to use ends up being a brawl between Wordpress and Joomla! To help you with your decision, we have created this nifty infographic which highlights some of the more pertinent points involved in the decision. For a more detailed approach, you're welcome to read the entire series of articles, upon which this infographic is based, which I wrote for Sitepoint.com.

    To use Joomla, Wordpress or Drupal to make sites with less than 200-300 pages means to have a very poor knowledge of CMSs. They are huge, slow, very difficult to use and to modify according user needs.
    They are very good for making newspapers or very big portals.
    Many people with graphic background but poor web technology know-how, use Joomla and Wordpress for making sites of 5-10 pages. This is crazy, expensive and gives a lot of constraints to the users.
    A number of very simple CMS is suitable for 50-100 page sites, while for 10-20 pages without needs of user updating, the simple HTML is perfect. But, as a matter of fact, few people can write simple HTML.

    A suggestion to the author: instead of writing about CMSs that are useless or not proper for 99% of practical applications, why not describe the best CMS to make sites with 10-20 web pages?
    This would help a wide range of people that follows wrong suggestions, without trying to learn from real life experience.
    Of course that would upset a lot of web designers that make money just exploiting the ignorance of the customers, but it's time to say the truth.

    Yeah, you're pretty much clueless. If I made an html site for any of my small site clients, they'd be locked into ME having to do every edit for them, or they'd have to learn how to use an html editor, log into their server, etc. A joomla site can be made small and fast, and it's not exploiting clients, it's empowering them. Most of my clients log into their own sites and update their own information. I really think you have no earthly idea what you're talking about.
