Joomla is better.. imo
Anica van Wyngaard (2 months ago)
Thank you for your video! I loved the way you explained things, I didn't feel after 100% comfortable about my decision, even after watching point for point comparisons videos on Joomla Vs Wordpress, but now I do. Thanks again!
Elliott Mondo (3 months ago)
Well.. this is what happen when a "developer wanna be" (I call them CMS installer) do a comparison video. More people shop in Walmart than Saks Fifth Ave but that definitely NOT because Walmart products are better quality. Cheap price attract more people. That's all. Don't get me wrong, I work on Wordpress as well as Joomla! and Drupal. Good developer should pick the CMS based on client's needs! NOT based on how easy it is to find plugins and add-ons. Sometime you may even have to go with no CMS and build the site from scratch if you have to. Otherwise you will just be like this guy, a DEVELOPER WANNA BE (Read: CMS Installer).
Ryan Moore (3 months ago)
Elliott Mondo- YES! I think my next Youtube channel should be called "Developer Wanna Be" :) I think this will keep me more humble! I do develop plugins and themes for Wordpress seen on http://tesseracttheme.com - (As you might already know) Here is my new Opt In Email Wordpress plugin I am coming out with soon, Check it out: https://tesseracttheme.com/opt-in-plugin/ (let me know what you think?)

This is NOT a caparison. Personally this is how it is, smart people use joomla, unsmart people use wordpress. :-)
Dave Williams (8 months ago)
They both have their strong points, this is someone that obviously only believes in wordpress. Another 5 minutes of my life gone thinking it was going to be more informational. I have used both and prefer Joomla, but for some things like blogs, I would only use wordpress.

Hello sir, can i use 2 cms joomla and drupal in one computer with database server....pls reply
VCPler (1 year ago)
My name is Mirko, I'm from germany and i'm a Digital and Print Media Designer Subject Area: Design and Technology. I work everyday with different CMS-Solutions. From Drupal, Joomla to Typo3. During my vocational training, I also worked with wordpress. I find that there are huge differences between Joomla and Wordpress. I also find that with Joomla you can create better targeted for customer pages. Of course, Joomla is more complex, but a lot more functions are available. To get the same result in Wordpress, I would have to install numerous plugins in wordpress. There are other solutions in the world of 'CMS' than Wordpress, which are even better.
LapakGua Indonesia (1 year ago)
What CMS that ebay used?
SimplerWebs (1 year ago)
Sorry but when you said that Joomla is not SEO-Friendly, that was incorrect! We've been using Joomla and WordPress ( including Magento, Drupal) for years (since the Flintstones) and when it comes to SEO, Joomla is SEO-Friendly! all you need to do is under 'Global Configuration' and under the 'SEO Settings' area, click 'Yes' for the 'Search Engine Friendly URLs', and 'Use URL Rewritting', rename your htaccess.txt to .htaccess (just like you would do for WordPress) and you are set. I am not sure whether you are really familiar with Joomla or not (but I believe you are not because you were totally wrong about Joomla and SEO). For Blogging, we always recommend our Clients to use WordPress, however, we were very successful using Joomla for Blogging sites. So unless you are an Experienced Joomla and WordPress user, I don't believe you can give an unbiased review/comparison.

wordpress sucks
MrMarcie (1 year ago)
my submission: if u wanna create a simple site, a blog and u wanna 'go easy' do WordPress. If you wanna go 'more techy' have some deep customizations, and you really care about advanced security features then do Joomla!. . . it just depends on your design-objectives tho!

Carmine Bastevole (1 year ago)
you did not talk so much about jomla
Elliott Mondo (3 months ago)
Well my friend, that's because he heard of something called Joomla! but when he tried to install it, he cannot find any plugin or add-on that will help him to click the Next button on the installer screen...so he gave up on Joomla!

Hello. Am building a corruption/fraud leak site. which one would you advice me to use?
Ryan Moore (1 year ago)
odunlade oluwaseun The only thing that I like that's relatively cheap is the TesseractTheme.com..(free) but you're right they have that footer.. you can remove it for $30 with them...
odunlade oluwaseun (1 year ago)
Do you have any responsive templates on mind that will cost just a few bucks without that annoying backlink at the footer?

Helenaville (1 year ago)
Looks like you're promoting WordPress over Joomla just so you can get us to click on the link you then provide below the video and you can then get paid your commission.  This is not a balanced Review.
Ibrahim Prof (2 years ago)
hello sir, from your explanation, It seems you advice us to use WordPress but when it comes to big websites, are you saying Joomla is better in terms of that?
Ryan Moore (2 years ago)
It really depends on 2 factors: 1. What type of site you are making and 2. what type of coder you hire for the site. I have worked with sites that get millions of hit that run on both platforms. It just comes down to what you are more comfortable with. Hope that helps.
Ibrahim Prof (2 years ago)
Thank you for explanation. I have a question sir. though I can work with HTML and CSS but this issue of CMS (Content Management Systems) are confusing me. Are both Wordpress and Joomla meant to replace designing and implementing a website using HTML, CSS and PHP/MySQL? If so, I can design use CMS to design a huge website with database connection?
Mark Simko (1 year ago)
Ibrahim Prof yes. with joomla, you can use one of several content construction kits. fabrik, Seblod, zoo. very powerful and flexible. you can go on to the code with a cck for even more control

blog.. article based content, high text media consumption-- use wordpress vs highly customizable web application for companies, modules and homebrew site suitable for tweaking, packaging and deploying upgrades and installers use joomla.

This is not a good "Joomla Vs Wordpress" comparison. This is a rambling monologue on how the author prefers Wordpress. No proper effort to compare the systems, point for point.

he's probably never used joomla.
Helenaville (1 year ago)
+Stephan Darbell Wrong. You think he doesn't make any money when people click on the link to his own site and then buy from him? Sounds like you do not understand even the first rule of commerce. You sell you make money. By the way, the reason no-one ever makes a video claiming Joomla is better than WordPress is because Joomla is free so there is no money to be made by claiming Joomla is better. Be careful what these videos are telling you because it is all about making money.
Helenaville (1 year ago)
You're right.  This is no more than an affiliate marketing tool to sway the viewer to click on the link provided in the 'Description' below the video.  Notice he gets the viewer to click on a site builder for WordPress so that he will get his commission.  And this is AFTER he has promoted WordPress over Joomla in the video.  Not a fair review.

bigwhopper83 (2 years ago)
Hi, which do you recommend for building a standard, non-blogging, site? Seems like Wordpress is for blogging only?
Michael Barber (1 year ago)
+Stephan Darbell Wrong. There is no disputing that WordPress is the most popular web site creation tool on the planet. Don't take my word for it. Take w3tech's: "According to w3tech in 2015, nearly one out of 4 websites on the Internet uses WordPress." ...and that's only grown now to "WordPress is used by 58.6% of all the websites whose content management system we know." This is 27.1% of all websites...so nearly now 1 in 3 websites on the Internet https://w3techs.com/technologies/details/cm-wordpress/all/all
Michael Barber (1 year ago)
I think there are just more resources on the Internet. It is the most popular website creation tool in the world. So basically there are gobs of help out there, blogs, and just about anything and everything written up about it.
Mark Simko (1 year ago)
bigwhopper83 I would use joomla. it has features wp doesn't have. scroll pages with free helix3 or t3 template frameworks instead of paid wp frameworks. no need for child themes. just easier with joomla.
Michael Barber (2 years ago)
+bigwhopper83 WordPress is better than Joomla. Joomla has some stuff out of the box in it that WordPress offers an extension...same with SEO. The extensions give you better flexibility and control over the stuff that is built in Joomla. I think WordPress is easier to use as well.
Ryan Moore (2 years ago)
I would use Wordpress.. Try using http://foxybuilder.com It's an instant Wordpress building site! :)

David Maurand (2 years ago)
There is a lot of bias (and some serious misinformation) in this - this is mostly a WP cheer session and is not an actual comparison of the relative strengths of either. Each has relative strong points that the other lacks, and there are reasons why you would choose one over the other. And to clear up one piece of bogus information: Joomla has incredible SEO out of the box. More bogus "...Sony...Ebay... use Wordpress." Not for their main sites they don't, but for microsites and landing pages - a job WP is well suited for, I hasten to add. Hope that helps. This is an old video and both platforms have significant changes, Joomla moreso, but significant improvements all around. On the front end (where your visitors go) you can't tell the difference. So here's one place, at least, the world is actually getting better.
created4design (2 years ago)
+Ho Ya Joomla right out of the box is great for blogging too. A lot more beefy of a system with Joomla. You may just want to use wordpress if its a simple blog. Although Joomla is great for blogging now out of the box. no longer need k2 extension (which is a masterpiece still). But since joomla 3+ i havent needed k2 and make all the blog sites i do using joomla out of the box with a theme installed.
Mr HY (2 years ago)
+David Maurand Mhm ^^ good to know. I'll using for blogs then if need be!
David Maurand (2 years ago)
+Ho Ya Depending on your needs, WP may be perfect. And blogging is something WP is great at right out of the box. : )
Mr HY (2 years ago)
+created4design hey this is really interesting. I started learning wordpress fits more for blogs and joomla is more for other types ( dont remember exactly waht the tutorial said XDD ) how is wordpress hard to manipulate? Havent tried it yet! :D
created4design (2 years ago)
+David Maurand THANK YOU! i have used both and Joomla kills wordpress in my opinion. The backend administration area is what scares new comers though. At first glance, Joomla offers sooo many options, its scary for new comers. But you can not deny its power over wordpress. Perhaps in the future Joomla will make its administration area more .. simpler.. to gain the new comers. Wordpress easy to learn harder to manipulate - Joomla harder to learn backend but a breeze to manipulate. You can just do so much more with Joomla, i am here to stay.

RJ Regalado (2 years ago)
I use joomla for churches, companies and small businesses. On the other hand, I use wordpress for static brochure sites, and personal sites with blogs. If you are going to make a blog, I will recommend Wordpress, period. And I won't argue with you with that. Joomla is a website tool where you can make a blog out of it, while wordpress is a blogging tool where you can create a website out of it. See the difference? SEO is the thing you need the most. Joomla is more powerful than Wordpress when it comes with SEO but it doesn't mean that Joomla is easier to set than Wordpress. You must do some tweaking and you must rename the htaccess.txt file to .htaccess. I don't know why they did not rename htaccess.txt to .htaccess out of the box. SEO is ready in Wordpress right after the installation. Joomla has 3 extensions, these are components (dynamic pages), plugins (custom programs inlined in articles) and modules (simply widgets). Wordpress calls them all as plugin. Yes indeed that there are tons of plugins in wordpress than joomla, however most of the plugins you need in Wordpress is already coded in Joomla's core. You even need a 3rd party extension for wordpress just to completely remove the comment section. Joomla is easy to learn, but wordpress is easier to learn. But joomla is more powerful than wordpress. However, the more power it has, the more complicated it will be. Certainly not for people who don't know much more about computers. But the most powerful among them all is drupal, if you have the skills
Mr HY (2 years ago)
That sucks. I mean one can learn php tho. I was trying to figure out how make certain things work in breezing forms extention...need php ><

Very true. From experience Joomla let me down on SEO. Wordpress definitely superior. However I got better SEO rankings for my sites by building my own simple CMS and simplifying all code on my sites
Mark Simko (1 year ago)
Cordelia Art that's preposterous. must have been something you did wrong. wp has no SEO advantage over joomla since the panda update devalued trackbacks and linkbacks.
RJ Regalado (2 years ago)
+Cordelia Art Did you turned the "Search Engine Friendly URL" On? How about "Use URL Rewriting"? Did you rename the htaccess.txt file with .htaccess?

I liked this video it was pretty informative explaining the two. I am more familiar with Wordpress, just heard of Joomla today. Hey, I live in Gun Barrel City, Texas, it takes a while for us to get stuff out here:-) This video is almost 3 years old, just wonder if you have an updated version, if not I would like to hear what you think in 2015? Thanks again. #Stradog

+Brandon Slack I absolutely agree with you.
Frederick H. Stralow (2 years ago)
+Brandon Slack I appreciate the quick response. Yes, I am sure things have changed a lot in 3 years, just in year the changes that happen is crazy. The good thing I guess is I really haven't used Wordpress enough and never used Joomla so it should be easier to pick up Joomla. Since
Brandon Slack (2 years ago)
Joomlas change a lot in 3 years, its a completely different CMS. New interface, cleaner code, more intuitive and light years more secure. Being a developer for Joomla since it was Mambo back in 2004, its interesting hearing the comparisons made between the two. At its heart Wordpress is a blogging platform. Over the years its been modified and stuffed with features expanding its function, however its still at its core a blog. Most businesses start with Wordpress because its popular and most people who dont program can be "web designer" for a day. Overtime, they realize its limitations with stuff like user permission systems. I see more people frustrated with Wordpress and moving to Joomla because at its heart Joomla didnt try to be Mambo (blogging CMS) it forked and made a path to a robust true CMS platform that's intended for business use. Even from a security standpoint, Wordpress has a significantly higher exposure level to vulnerabilities. I'm constantly dealing with WP sites which have been hacked. In the end if you haven't taken a look at Joomla in a few years it would be good to do so. From a developers point of view Wordpress hasn't made any big advancements in their platform and it shows with the number of sites in the wild that are hacked and the number of businesses looking for something easier to use.

ryan. thanks for your recommendations. i am new to wordpress though dont have any past experience of programing or anything else. but found very good tutorials on youtube. well, i am just intrested in to build a realestate website with company portfolio and want to linked some maps and properties with that site. like if a user comes to my site he will upload his or her property details. he can search for lettings or can do rent. but a bit confused about which platform shall i go with for my this project. Wordpress or Joomla which hosting plan shall i go with? i searched a lot on internet and found different companies with different promises. can you suggest any? i found siteground, ehost and hostgator but confused which is best. because i dont know about technalities and i already told you i am not much familiar with programming. so can you recommend any hosting company with easy to use cpannel and friendly cms? your suggestions will highly be appreciated. thanks and regards, Z A Khan

Toro De Tor (3 years ago)
What you are saying about SEO is not correct. On joomla you can set your metatags for each page (SEO) - in wordpress you cant unless you download some stupid plugin ... and then go take a lok at your sourcecode - thats just bad. Wordpress is for someone that doesnt care about details (most of them dont understand the details). Wordpress can do everything - but cant do anything right!
Babak (1 year ago)
+Toro De Tor Joomla it's more complex, but it's better than joomla. Wordpress it's for beginners or simple sites.

Hi Ryan, I want to develop a webpage for a home care company . i have never done this before i am even learning how to get and why i need at domain name :( ! I want a very nice page that with time and experience  i am hoping will become a interactive amazing page . should i use Joomla or Wordpress 
Ryan Moore (3 years ago)
Tina, I would honestly go with Wordpress. And if you are going to go with them I would get a FREE Wordpress site at http://buildawpsite.com/ Here you can build an AMAZING site you would probably pay over $3k in less then 10 min :) All you need to do is get a cheap domain name and hosting after you get your site. (The site will guild you through this) Here is a video I did on domain names and hosting to help you better understand: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TaXcdyBnwbw Hope this helps :) Ryan

Everybody says the same thing - "wordpress is easier but joomla is more flexible" but nobody says what exactly "more flexible" means. What can I do with joomla that I cant with wp?
Ryan Moore (3 years ago)
If your high-level programmer than the answer is absolutely nothing! But if you don't have time to program and do not want to do any "high-level"  techie stuff then WordPress is more"flexible." By definition what we mean by "flexible" is you can add a lot of plugin modules on top of Wordpress. There are a lot more modules available to the public for word press and there is for Joomla! Plug-ins such as social media plug-ins, e-commerce plug-ins, forms, calendar plug-ins and so on... :)

Ahmed Adel Khater (3 years ago)
My only take on WordPress is it's limited support of multilingual websites, Especially RTL support. I know there are a lot of plug-ins out there for this problem , but most of them are either expensive to purchase or very difficult to deal with a huge content and pages. So .. what do you think is better at this point ! .. my answer is definitely Joomla.

Ryan Moore (3 years ago)
Honestly it just depends on what you are trying to do. But a good programer can pretty much grant the same functionality in both applications. I would look into what you feel the most comfortable with and look at the plugins on both ends to see what you really want in terms of a site, first. You might find there are some extensions you like better in Joomla then Wordpress.. It just depends.

Joakim Gulbrandsen (3 years ago)
So two years in the making - still going with wordpress over joomla? I cant decide, i am familiar with wordpress, but i think joomla looks a bit more professional for a new page. But it will need custom themes, just as Wordpress needs. I am torn. :p Joomla also seems more intense, its way more things you have to do with Joomla to get it up and running.
Mark Simko (3 years ago)
yes, honors gives you much more control over your web site. Video is wrong about Joomla's seo. JoJo's seo is built in. WordPress is an add on. JoJo's is still far ahead of WordPress on features. WordPress is better for blogs and simple sites. WordPress needs more plugins because it is basic. To me, worthless is a blog platform forced into a cms. like a square peg trying to for into a round hole. not a comfortable fit at all

I like this video because it's concise but informative. When something I need to learn is completely new to me, it helps if someone can compare it to something I already know about. What I would like to add is that I've had many job interviews for marketing jobs where they asked whether I have experience in WordPress. Sometimes companies that hire marketing people require Joomla experience, but that doesn't happen nearly as often. 
Ryan Moore (4 years ago)

I have used Joomla for a long time and I’m trying to learn worpdress… I am so lost, T_T  does worpdress work activating modules into positions? 
Ted Weddell (4 years ago)
+Abdulahad Musamer They are both excellent platforms. Which one is the best choice depends on the type of website. For simple blogs, informational websites, or to sell a few products, WordPress is well suited and much simpler to use. WordPress is also the best choice if you want to create multiple sites using sub-domains or sub-directories, because of the built-in multisite feature. However, for more advanced websites, such as a full featured online catalog or an online community, Joomla is the best choice. The available Joomla extensions tend to be far more advanced. Take a look at the extensions available at the Joomla Extension Directory (JED - http://extensions.joomla.org) and you'll see what I mean. If you're not sure, I'd suggest trying both WordPress and Joomla, side by side, and compare the strengths and weaknesses of each. I prefer Joomla because it suits my needs most of the time. Hope that helps. :)
A. Lee (4 years ago)
+Ted Weddell So you mean, Joomla is better than Wordpress? Right?  Thanks....
Ted Weddell (4 years ago)
Wordpress widgets (not modules) are dragged into positions from the backend, and are very difficult to manage which pages they appear on. I use wordpress for one blogging community I run, as the members prefer the simplicity. Other than that, I stick with Joomla for just about everything, including blogs. The available templates and template frameworks (gantry, warp, expose...) along with CCKs like Form2Content, K2, etc... make Joomla far more flexible. Also, the coding standards seem to be far more professional. I believe the reason so many people use WordPress is because it's so easy to install and set up, at the cost of flexibility. I can usually spot a wordpress site the minute I look at it.

I'd go with wordpress. I have several member sites running on the same theme and using an integrated selling platform (created by the theme design company) that allows me to build with affiliates. The theme has integrated multi-tiered membership and "drip feed" capability so people can't just get a trial or one month - download your content and cancel. I'm not going to post a link here but you (or anyone else interested) can contact me by private message for the information.

As a programmer Having developed plugin for both will recommend joomla most of wordpress plugin i have examined are poorly written and can easily compromise your site , MVC structure is there for a reason not programmer putting codes everywhere on the site. Wordpress is being pushed to be something is not , it is a blog and not cms

@HackYaaa: I googled "Drupal crisis" like you suggested, and there were plenty of results. However, all of the relevant results (at least on the first couple of pages) were dated Aug/Sept 2011. As I type this it's July 2013, so it does seem like things have moved on.

doesn't matter how popular wordpress has gotten & that their system has become more robust than the 1st few versions, there is still tons of extensions & templates & support for joomla & it's going nowhere. yes it might be trickier to setup good seo on it, but once it's done, it's done & people then just use it like wordpress & just add/edit/remove articles, pages, blogs, menus, etc. also, if you want better blogging on joomla, use K2. heck you can even merge a port of WP inside of joomla.

I work as a web designer and I made some video tutorials regarding wordpress. WP experts say that it's the most complete wordpress training ever created. You can watch a sample video from this training on my channel..

WordPress scales better than Drupal. Drupal is in total mess right now. So many incompatible modules, it's not even funny. Just google "Drupal crisis" Drupal developers like to say, "Well, at least we have texamony." Duh, so does WordPress. There isn't one thing that Drupal does better than WordPress.

It's not that Joomla is a bad CMS. WordPress has just gotten so much better (in past 2 yrs.) than Joomla or Drupal. As a coder, the problem I have with Joomla is way its javascript is written. You see many antiquated/bad practice javascripts in Joomla whereas WordPress is 100% compatible with jQuery and very up to date. Any user out there, just go with WordPress. The quality of WP themes & plugins, in terms of technicality & design, are so high, it amazes me.

If you want a simple and typical website go for Wordpress or Joomla. If you want a creative and scalable website then use Drupal.

@BPOPhillipines, your Notepad route is entirely irrational and amateur. You evidently have infinite time and no need for money. Editing with tags c/w using a layout package is a waste of effort. Putting out CONTENT is the aim, not fiddling with machinery to get it online. Would people use Facebook or Twitter using layout tags and HTML? No way. CMSs exist to let bloggers etc invest their time uploading content. Efficient site building is totally incompatible with 1990s line-by-line coding.

I was frustrated.. (about ready to die actually LOL) chasing the "marketing method of the month".. Today's children might be looking at "holograms" of marketing messages from beams blasting out of their smart phones.. While the methods of marketing and making money change.. The principles are the same.. Learn how to "reap the profits" of using "secret stealth" marketing methods.. Combined with with timeless marketing wisdom that "inspires buyers to take action"..
