WordPress or Joomla
We at PegsWeb have used almost all CMS systems including Joomla, WordPress, Drupal, and Expression Engine. Each one of these CMSs has it’s own pros and cons. But from our experience, we loved Joomla, and WordPress the most. May be because we think more about our clients as we want to give them the best user experience possible.
Joomla offers a great functionality out of the box, but it isn’t user friendly like WordPress. So choosing between Joomla, and WordPress is a hard choice. So we are choosing between this two CMSs depending on the project.
