Business owners need to realise that their design is a reflection of their business even if it is not intentional. If you don’t care about your design then your design is telling people that you don’t care about your business.

Joomla! is the world’ s most popular open source content management system (CMS). And with 2.7 percent of the World Wide Web currently being run on Joomla!, it is easy to see why it is the No. 1 software choice for website owners who want to get themselves noticed online.

Powerful, sophisiticated, yet easily customisable, Joomla! is the key to a successful online presence.

Joomla, which translates from the Swahili 'jumla', as 'all together', is an open source, content management system licensed under the General Public License (GPL) for the purpose of publishing content on the World Wide Web.

A content management system allows owners to take complete control over every aspect of the site, from adding content and images to taking online orders. Other functions within a content management system include:-

  • Creating a gallery or portfolio
  • Importing and export RSS feeds
  • joomla logoCreating a link directory
  • Banner Advertising
  • Newsflashes
  • Blogs
  • Polls
  • Banner Adverts
  • Calendars
  • Translations into multiple languages

This is a small selection of the features of a CMS; there are many more available.

In addition to the main Joomla package there are more than 8000 extensions and system enhancement tools available, many of which are free, meaning that there is very little that cannot be integrated into a Joomla! website.

Because no prior experience of complicated coding is required, you don’t have to be a technological expert to make changes; they can be made simply and quickly with minimum fuss. If you can use a word processor and have a reasonable standard of computer literacy, you can maintain and manage your website.

Future Proof

The Joomla! software developers are constantly updating its functionality, meaning that it can adapt easily to advances in technology, improved web standards or indeed any change in user methods.

Joomla! could well be described as ‘future proof’.

This award-winning Open Source Content Management System is multi-functional, not only in that it allows users to manage the content of the website, but also by offering web owners the utmost flexibility through the vast number of Joomla! Extensions that can be incorporated into the design.
