I used to use it, the backend felt so, clumsy.

As well I have never heard anything good about it from designers point of view.

the choice depends on each person profile. if you are a blogger or a very good php programmer, wordpress will match your needs.

for somebody with less programming skills but in need to have a more complicate website, joomla can be a solution (with just few lines you had integrated a html template in joomla).

a lot of peoples who talk negative about joomla, have mentions about its complicated administration. but, when you provide a joomla solution for a client, nobody ask you to let in administration all unnecessary functions.

[later edit] yes, i like it, in same way i like any other proper cms useful for certain need.

LOL , well i started to use wordpress because i had no programming skills, i have work with joomla before and i must say that joomla is harder to learn than wordpress. One of the things that makes wordpress popular is that is easier to learn than an cms like joomla.

Joomla is a usefull tool but i have noticed that new clients of my love to work with wordpress instead of working with joomla

Actually thats very true. I think wordpress takes the first place in many designers list also drupal. but joomla, for me as a php beginner, I think its over complicated.

i think the topic questions was from a web designer / programmer point of view, not an user. then, from programming point of view, what is hard to learn joomla? :) how to insert 3, 4 lines of code to have a full working joomla template, compare with wp?

from administration point of view, yes, joomla is not so user friendly, even the latest joomla had improved that. but, if you are providing to a client more admins tools then he need, who have a problem?

i am not starting a debate, but an expresion like “joomla sucks” is way to exagerate and have nothing to do with reality. joomla have strong points and weaks like wp do, or any other cms.

for instance, drupal is considered more complicated then joomla (my point of view too), but still have their fans, and no doubt, is a great cms.

A CMS cannot be evaluated only upon it’s merits, not when there are so many other FOSS CMSes which do things ‘better’.

Me too, but in Joomla’s defense I just installed it and tried creating content for a while without reading any sort of how-to. I didn’t really like it and never went back, it may be better these days.
