Which cms is good?
In my experience WordPress offers more community support and security.
Much easier to find help and solutions to accomplish what you want.
Joomla requires more technical expertise and has less support.
I have tried both cms and I can say that Wordpress is more user friendly
I had a Joomla site once. It got hacked and I never got it back. That was a lot of money that just disappeared overnight.
I've used both, but I find it easier to work with Word Press. Not only is Word Press more user friendly, but the information and technical support available far surpasses that of Joomla.
Agreed. WordPress for the win
That brings up a good point about back-ups, make it a habit!
With Joomla, manual back-up and restores were the only way.
With WordPress you can just click on "export" or "import".
There are plugins to email you backups automatically.
(Weekly or monthly is adequate for most sites.)
But the best defense is blocking hackers in the first place.
I highly recommend WordFence plugin for security.
It uses a community wide bad IP list for starters.
Also checks your files for any changes daily.
Emails you if anyone logs in as Admin.
Blocks hackers and sends you a notice.
WordPress is Just2EZ, that's why I use it!
(that and it's FREE, no strings attached)
Free and Easy, what more can you ask.
Wordpress wordpress & wordpress. Easy to build, more functionality with various plugins and very SEO friendly.
As for me, the Wordpres is better! It is easier to use it, very convinient, you can configure the site how you want. But lately, I prefer using website builder servises like http://www.webstarts.com It is very easy to develop a site with it, I like them. Also, for Wordpress, there is a huge number of ready-made templates and additional plugins.
Never tried Joomla. What is it?
My vote is for WordPress as well.
Hands down, WordPress! I use WP myself.
I'm more familiar with Wordpress. I'm sorry but I'm not into Joomla.
Like the others above, Wordpress is definitely the way forward, and to add to another comment above, one of my former websites was hacked and turned the website into a spam emitter, essentially meant that my server was spitting out 500,000 emails an hour, which then meant my whole domain and IP address was placed on a spam list. After changing IP address and sending a few apology emails to various spam list managers, I managed to get my website back on track. Lesson learned, keeping well away from Joomla, I wasn't a massive fan of it anyway...
Since using Wordpress, I've constructed a few sites now, and it's incredibly easy but it does involve a slight learning curve, the whole posts / pages / widgets got me perplexed for quite a while, but I'm very comfortable with it now.
