With the choices in open source content management systems (CMS) this infographic from Devious Media compares WordPress, Joomla and Drupal. I’ve used WordPress and Joomla to build sites and found both of them robust with many features available. WordPress I favor for its greater ease of use and wealth of plugins and available knowledge base on the web. I’ve only dipped my toe very reluctantly into Drupal and found it to be more complex than I’m willing to invest. It seems to be a strong platform for ecommerce as well as custom applications. If you choose Drupal you want to get a professional. Even entering data into the system seems a bit spooky to me. Joomla has a flexible framework but I found the plugins to be cumbersome and not perform as well as expected. Some of the Joomla sites I built a few years ago have been migrated to WordPress. Overall as you can probably tell I’m a big WordPress fan.
