Re: Installation involves database management and I suck at that
What’s not to like about Joomla?
- seo friendly URLs are not built in, and need to be handled by each component individually
- Section > Category > Article – those are my choices, no more, no less? That’s lame
- Community support: the WordPress community is far more helpful than the Joomla one, in me experience.
- Seems like 80% of the add-ons for Joomla are paid, where 80% of them for WordPress are free. I really think that has held Joolma back: the fact that everything you want to add to it costs money
Also, sometimes you just understand where certain software is coming from, more than others. I understand WordPress better than I understand Joomla. And I’ve never had a problem with a WordPress upgrade, where almost every Joomla upgrade I attempted resulted in pain.
Of course, YMMV. You use whatever tools you need to to get the job done.
