Over 200,000 users have made Joomla!’s services one of the most popular open source content management systems since the year 2000. Through Joomla!, users can create websites for their businesses, maintain company intranets, publish online magazines or newsletters, organize non-profit events through Internet-based portals, develop their school or neighborhood community, or simply keep friends and family connected through a personal homepage. Joomla! does this by providing an easy-to-use content management system, which keeps track of information on a web site or network and makes it useable.
More than 3% of the Internet runs thanks to Joomla!. The software is available in over 64 languages, so any webmaster or creator can get started right away. Additionally, through the forums and resources directory on their website, Joomla! makes it easy for new users to find technical support when they need it. There is a library over 8,000 Joomla! extensions, which help users customize a website to their exact needs. With basic resources like a menu manager, newsfeed management, tagging, front end editing, and nested organization, Joomla! works just like most of the popular website building services out there. This means it’s fast to learn and use.
For developers with more specific needs, Joomla! has even more options, including templates that help users design pages quickly. Troubleshooting services, private messaging, mass mailing, microdata library, the ability to save and revert to previous versions of content, and a new cloud storage API all work to give users an even more personal experience. In order to allow users to see the software before they download, there is an online demo that is free to use for 90 days. Users can create an entire website, for free, using all of Joomla!’s tools. When the trial is over, move the site to a standard hosting account to keep using it.
