Joomla is used all over the world to power websites of all shapes and sizes. It’s an award-winning content management system (CMS), which enables users to build websites and powerful online applications. Joomla is designed to be easy to install and set up even if you’re not an advanced user. It’s known for excelling in aesthetics and functionality: features such as shopping cart, data management and events calendars.
Note: A CMS is software that keeps track of every piece of content (simple text, photos, music, video, electronic documents, etc.) on a website. Using a CMS to manage your website requires almost no technical skill or knowledge, which is a big advantage. Since the CMS manages all your content, you don’t have to!
Some examples of top organizations using Joomla to power their websites include: United Nations (governmental organization) www.unric.org; MTV Networks Quizilla (social networking) www.quizilla.com; L.A. Weekly (online publication) www.laweekly.com; and IHOP (restaurant chain) www.ihop.com.
Since Joomla is so easy to use, web designers and developers can use the software to quickly build full-function sites for clients. With a minimal amount of instruction, those clients can be empowered to easily manage their own sites. For users looking for specialized functionality, Joomla is highly extensible. The well-organized Joomla extensions directory allows users to access hundreds of security, administration, e-commerce, design and other features.
