When it comes to CMS website development, you have a lot of options. But, from all those options, three are popular – WordPress CMS development, Joomla CMS development, and Drupal CMS development. Which should you choose from these three?
When choices are given, the best way to select the best option is by understanding the pros and cons of each choice, from your perspective. Keep in mind that WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal are all great CMS applications. It is your perspective or your expectation of the CMS application that matters when it comes to the selection.
All right, now let us quickly look at the pros and cons of each CMS application.
WordPress is quite a popular Open Source CMS application. Many individuals and even small businesses seek WordPress development services for budget-friendly CMS website and blog site solutions. With the emergence of WooCommerce, an E-commerce plugin for WordPress, many small merchants too are seeking WordPress development services or WooCommerce development services for affordable E-commerce solutions. If you do not need many custom features and functions, WordPress is ideal for you.
Here are the pros and cons of WordPress:
|• Easy to understand and use||• Difficult to create and customize the functions|
|• Easy to add common features and functions||• Difficult to personalize the themes and designs|
|• Easy to find beautiful themes and template designs||• Very difficult to build custom web applications|
Note: Of course, it is possible to create and customize the functions and themes and designs, but you will need to hire skilled WordPress developers.
Joomla is another popular CMS application, which is a bit more powerful than WordPress. Usually, small and medium-sized businesses seek Joomla CMS development services for affordable CMS website and powerful web application solutions. With Joomla, it is also possible to build excellent E-commerce solutions. If you need powerful website or web app solutions, then Joomla is ideal for you.
Here are the pros and cons of Joomla:
|• Easy to understand and use (not as intuitive as WordPress)||• Difficult to build and customize the functions|
|• Easy to add common features and functions (not as easy as WordPress)||• Difficult to personalize the themes and designs|
|• Developer-friendly for web apps development||• A bit expensive than WordPress development|
Note: It is possible to build and customize the functions and themes and designs, but you will need to hire skilled Joomla developers. Also to build custom web apps, you will need to rely on experienced Joomla developers.
Drupal is yet another reliable CMS application, which is quite popular in the government and corporate sectors. Usually, government and corporate entities seek Drupal development services for cost-effective and secure CMS website solutions. If you need a secure, easy-to-customize CMS website solutions, then Drupal is for you.
Here are the pros and cons of Drupal:
|• Very easy to add custom features||• A bit difficult to understand and use|
|• Very easy to change the website theme||• Very difficult to build custom apps|
|• Secure, powerful, and scalable than WordPress and Joomla||• Expensive than WordPress development and Joomla development|
Note: Drupal is great, with adding custom features and functions, but with the additions made over time, it tends to become messy, which eventually affects the performance. In order to clean the mess, you will need to hire experienced and skilled Drupal developers.
So now you at least have a brief idea about the pros and cons of each CMS application. Now, it is up to your expectation. If you need a simple, intuitive CMS website, blog site, or E-commerce solution, then go for WordPress development. If you need an easy-to-use CMS website or powerful web application solution, then go for Joomla development. And, if you need a secure and scalable CMS website solution that is easy to customize, then go for Drupal development.
