Ease is the key to success

Let’s start with Joomla. It’s much more difficult to handle. Joomla is definitely more complicated than WordPress and it’s less intuitive. What’s more, it may happens problems with compatibility between some modules and plugins. It’s of course annoying but also it requires from user interfering with the PHP code to get some functionality.

Problems with updating in Joomla

It’s very hard to learn and it’s not that accommodating, resulting in our discouragement to use this platform. As I mentioned before, Joomla panel isn’t intuitive and whole management of CMS creates problems for users. As you know, platforms introduce newer versions and it’s very important to user to seamlessly follow the update procedure.  Unluckily Joomla causes problems and difficulties of such an operation.

Now WordPress

It’s very easy to install it and doesn’t cause problems when you set up to the higher versions. In addition, WordPress offers you over 35 000 free extensions and many pre-built templates. You should notice, that this number still grows.What’s more, adding contents and media is very easy and the editor is not complicated. Pages based on WordPress are positioning well and this all makes WordPress is so popular. You don’t have to be a programmer, you don’t have to need special skills to run great site. If you appreciate the ease of use, and at the same time you want your page delighted readers, you definitely should use WordPress.
