What Is WordPress?


What is CMS? WordPress? Joomla?

So what's the deal with WordPress and Joomla?

Perhaps you've heard people talk about their WordPress blog or their Joomla website.  What's the big deal?  The exciting thing about WP ("Wordpress") and Joomla is that they are content management systems (CMS).  In other words, they allow you to add articles or posts while giving you control on how to display it.  They both come with "backend administration", or a page where the administrator logs in and makes all the changes.  That means that the control of the website can be managed from any computer that has internet access and a browser.  Whether you are on vacation or your lunch break at work, you can make those much-needed changes to your website.

WP and Joomla are free to use and have large communities of user and developers who have implemented thousands of components or plugins to enhance the functionality of your website.  Do you need an online store?  How about a forum?  Have you thought of having your own blog?  What about picture galleries?  All of these and thousands more of features have already been developed.  It's just a matter of searching for the ones that best suit your needs.

Did I mention templates? There are thousands of free template themes for your website.  It takes only a few minutes to switch the appearance of your website to a new theme.  From the header, the links, the menus, and color text, all of it is included in a new theme.
