Joomla, developed by Open Source Matters, is a free and open source CMS. It uses an MVC framework and is written in PHP. Joomla’s architecture is built on a web template system with frontend templates that display web pages and backend templates used to administer websites.
It is ideal for busy, interactive applications with high traffic volumes.
The name Joomla is the phonetic spelling for the Swahili word “Jumla”, meaning “all together” or “as a whole”
The Only Major CMS Built Entirely by Volunteers
Joomla is supported by a global community of volunteers. This support network provides instant answers to Joomla user questions. Consistent development and testing from international sources means fewer platform errors and faster patching. Being free, developers are not gagged by restrictive vendor guidelines.
Freestanding Web Application Framework
With over 8000 extensions, Joomla allows complete customization of websites and is available as a script for easy installation. Not just a CMS, Joomla is also a freestanding web application framework, making it a convenient option for creating diverse applications, from blogs to web portals.
First Choice for Government Websites
Powerful extensibility and ease of use make Joomla a natural choice for government websites that cater to a broad spectrum of users. Joomla’s core features and extensions can be used out-of-the-box and do not need custom development to work efficiently. This is ideal for government departments, offices, and agencies at federal, state, county and provincial levels. Joomlatemplates make it easy to brand government organizations’ websites across the country. Plus, Joomla is tried and tested; governments are not too keen on being the unwitting testers of new trends. Joomla ticks several other boxes for government: it works in any environment, it is open source, and it is free.
Uniquely Geared to Host Event, Content and Social Media Applications
Advanced user access management, built-in multilingual support, and the ability to use multiple templates for different types of content on the same site, makes Joomla ideal for busy, interactive applications.
