The are many great Content Management Systems (CMS) on the market today. Surprisingly, our best recommendations are free, or GPL, GNU, or other “Public Licenses” so you get the framework free.
Our favorites are WordPress, and Joomla, with specific reasons why we choose one, over the other, for any project. BazookaBOX is a collection of upgrades that only work with WordPress. For those interested, will be posting more about Joomla vs. WordPress in our News Feed. But in most cases, we’ll wager you’ll choose WordPress, even if to work along side of Joomla, each serving different purposes in your company, or project.
Remember, a website is just a set of related web pages containing content such as text, images, video, audio, etc. WordPress is is a framework designed to manage your website, without knowing anything about programming.
Why WordPress Is Awesome
What Makes WordPress Special?
What separates WordPress from many of it’s peers, is the sheer number of enhancements that are available. Starting out as a simple “blogging Framework”, WordPress has grown to easily manage complex website projects. Thanks to a massive community of programmers, determined to build countless enhancements, known as “Plugins” that augment, and/or modify the WordPress to perform highly specialized functions, and tasks for you.
While other CMS, like Joomla, have adopted this “Plugin” format to extend the capability, of the framework. WordPress was already a search engine darling. That is, starting as a “Blogging” platform, the major search engines like Google, MSN, Yahoo, and others, coded to read standard WordPress URLS like the common http://yourwebsite.com/feed/” URL, for the most recent post to a “Blog.” When used properly, this can act like your own personal “Press Release”, to the search engines around the world.
WordPress Plugins Change Everything
