Joomla vs WordPress vs Drupal

What is WordPress, Joomla, Drupal?

These are sets of tools ready to work in managing the content displayed on the web, it's websites too. Each CMS has a so-called. back room, thanks to which the administrator can create and edit content, that will be displayed to users.

As a curiosity, I will mention that all of the mentioned are so surprising, że korzystają z języka PHP, which is actually a scripting language. So it only requires something like an interpreter and does not require any compilation. Of course, in order to meet the requirements of website users, they use other techniques, e.g.. AJAX, JavaScript, JQuery itd.

Adventure with WordPress.

Z WP bardzo się zżyłem, the more that it was the first CMS I met. Wcześniej próbowałem coś się „naumieć” PHP lecz był to istny niewypał. Many things were unclear to me, in addition, my entire professional life was not related to web / webmaster technology. This, too, is learning PHP and is an unknown mystery to me.

WordPress is very intuitive. I found out about it as soon as I started using it. Lots of plugins, that install and update themselves. Fairy tale, like a dream for a preschooler. Wchodząc w świat WWW każdemu życzę tak miłego przywitania jakim mnie obdarzył wspomniany WP.


I tested Joomla. Literally. There was no (as in the case of WP) deep water entrances. And good, 'Cause I would have popped out like burned.

Joomla is quite tough to use. It still needs refreshing (backend panel, controlled by the page) and thoughtful steps. Chociażby "Save" the "Save and Exit".
At this time, I will say one thing - test, before you bet on Joomla, because you'll only get discouraged. And there is nothing to do, because it is a powerful CMS that makes your work easier.

Unfortunately. In the case of Joomla, there are no simple configurators or plugin finders. You have to look for them on your own. In addition, the compatibility between versions is very negligible, what is not experienced in WP.


I will tell the least about this Lord. I normally felt mixed with mud. It is powerful. Really, but it requires great skill, or work. In Drupal, I felt like I sat at the console in BSD my whole life knowing only Linux. It's almost the same, but not. In Drupal, accuracy is required. Like BSD, it does not tolerate sloppiness and sluggishness. This is a great advantage for me, but not at this skill level. Same as Drupal, I think, that when to do something, doing it well and striving for excellence.

I think, that I got along with Drupal. We recognized, that we will meet in the future


I allowed myself to create a simple table with the capabilities of each of the CMSs mentioned. Yes, to make it easier.

(10points = max, if points were awarded)

WP Joomla Drupal
Ease of installation / configuration 10/10 10/4 10/2
Number of free / paid templates a lot of free, but licenses (the most common) forbid editing / after paying the free ones, you can edit them, there are also many paid ones. Very little free (it's hard to find) / paid a lot Same as for Joomla
Ease of installation of templates WP has a kind of repositories. So we're not looking on the web, and we only mark (in the backyard) what we like and installs by itself. You have to search the web. Installation is just a few clicks. I haven't figured out how to do it. No Polish guide available on the web, and copying to directories doesn't work
Editing templates You can edit all template files from the backend. It has an editor with syntax highlighting. CSS files only. Also colors the syntax. No Comment / too little knowledge
Number of free plugins / paid 10/10 with the same reservation as in the case of templates. 5/10. Specific. Or you pay and you have something ready and good, or you have nothing. The question of searching You probably write everything yourself here. I found little. I'm not going to be defeated
Ease of plugin installation Mega easy. We enter what interests us, and we have. And all from the back office Searching the web. There is a dedicated page, but hardly readable for the new user. j.w.
Editing plugins Często łamie licencję, but it is possible. The same editor and the same - from the backend. Of course you can also use the user interface (depending on the author's vision) Authors planned options only. No editing of php or css etc files from backend. j.w.
User rights If we have a site with different content. It will be hard in WP. We can edit the rights, but it's not easy. Sitter. Joomla constantly reminds you, that such a thing exists. There is everything you need at the start. Is, and it is clearer (for Linux user) than in joomla
Additional options for articles (writing, insertion, edition) It all depends on the quality and quantity of plugins we install. It gives you great opportunities, but it's hard to keep order. Very big. There are few good text editors, but you can nest anything in anything very easily. It only requires working with the documentation Very big. You can nest anything in anything. Knowing Joomla will make your job easier, bo dokumentacji nie znalazłem ?

It's worth pointing out, that, as in the case of WordPress, adding and manipulating ads (which has just become a very important part of the internet) it is very difficult, while in joomla and drupal it is fabulously simple. Joomla and drupal are the treat (in my opinion) each type of content as equivalent to the others and everything works very harmoniously.
In WP, I have often felt a kind of racism for certain content. Ads only through this plugin, photos and videos just like that, and mp3 only through the mp3 module. As if WordPress consisted of many smaller CMS systems and there was no bond or connection between them.

The advancement level is already a moot point. It just depends on your point of view, it's also seats
What will you want, you will get it.

So it is up to the user to decide. But before making a decision, I recommend that you read each other for a few weeks. Because there is no perfect recipe. Some people prefer BMW, a inni mercedesy etc..
