OLITT vs Joomla: Joomla is a popular Content Management System that had been touted to take over the lead from WordPress in 2010, but clearly Joomla has failed to live to its potential.
History of Joomla
Joomla was developed in 2005 by Open Source Matter, Inc using the MVC (Model-view-Controller) web application framework using PHP and MYSQL database, MSSQL database and PostgreSQL databases.
Joomla was developed as a fork of Mambo after a disagreement on Open Source values between Open source developers and Mambo trademark owners Miro International Pvt. Ltd.
The open source developers led by Andrew Eddie formed Open Source Matter, Inc. (OSM) to launch Joomla in August 2005.
Joomla is ideal for publishing web content such as blogs, corporate sites, forums, and general websites among others. Some of the top features include
Page caching, Printable pages, news flashes, language internationalization, RSS among others.
Joomla structure utilizes Templates or Themes, Extensions and Modules to extend its functionalities beyond the core functionalities.
Joomla was released as a free software under GPL, themes and extensions are available for both free and paid.
Other key functionalities include:
Menu Management – Allow creation and management of Menu items
Cache Management – Allow management of pages cache to improve on performance.
Multilingual – Joomla is available in over 75 languages globally.
Search Engine Optimization- Feature to help developers optimize websites for Search Engine Ranking.
Joomla is a complicated content management software and does not qualify to be a simple site builder like Olitt.
