    I would always choose WordPress over Joomla. WordPress has a lot more themes, plugins, information around the web if you need it and many other things going for it.

    Joomla is not bad, but I would choose WordPress over Joomla.

    Good Luck. ;)

    Wordpress is much better than joomla. I have been looking at many different things with these 2 cms and wordpress has many more themes and plugins than joomla. There is also much more help to find if you need it for wordpress. Choose wordpress better than joomla.

    I agree with the others, Wordpress is the better choice between the two. There are a lot more themes, plugins, support options, abilities and other things available for Wordpress.

    I am not saying that Joomla is bad, just that at this point it's probably easier, cheaper and have more option availabilities with Wordpress.

    Cheers, Dean

    It depends on what you plan to do with your website.

    Will it truly be a website, a blog, a eCommerce site, etc. They are both good at what they were designed to do but if given the choice I would choose neither one. Design your own site.

    Are you interested in speed, security, customization, then stay away from large platforms like WordPress and Joomla. I catch a lot of flack for making statements like this but those two platforms are tremendous targets for spammers, and black hat web scrappers and the like because of their popularity. There is a reason that large sites do not use a boxed CMS platform. SECURITY and SPEED

    These platforms are slow, and the more plugins you add, and there are thousands of them, the slower and more unstable they become.

    They are very difficult to customize and secure and as soon as a plug in come out with at security patch to fix a hole some knucklehead finds another security breach.

    Just my opinion but if you are developing a website, design it yourself. It is not that hard and you will learn a lot about how the web works while doing it.

    WordPress is preferable for beginners. However, it does not mean that WordPress is much better than Joomla, Joomla just easier to use in certain areas and it is more difficult to learn. For beginners, it may seem a confusing Joomla
