Tis very good for CMS sites and can grow with your needs, on the minus side: it stinks with SEO and for the end user, a steep learning curve awaits.

Joomla is an excellent content management system, which is very flexible, configurable, and relevant to a slew of web and organisational applications.

Great product, though it should NOT be on this site as it is not software per-se, and it has its very own distribution site at www.joomla.org

I wouldn't dare touch this probably ever, after reading the joomla forum security issues, such as:
"Doing things 2 or 3 times only to have some turkish or persian teenager hack it gets real old, real quick. I guess there really is something to doing it yourself.

Thanks for an informative ride, joomla. You can let me off here. >:("

It seems the basic code is flawed. real 3rd world coding

@mjm01010101

You obviously didn't bother to read the infor you point to at http://secunia.com/advisories/32622 but that's ok, I'll be glad to help you out . . .

"Successful exploitation requires access to the weblink submission form.

The vulnerabilities are reported in version 1.5.7 and prior.

Solution:
Update to version 1.5.8"

Your low rating is meaningless. Please, if you are going to trash someone's work at least validate your claims.

Joomla is a fine product, flexible and fun.

What mikeeberhart said.
They haven't even updated the text (version number) telling us that the demo is unavailable. Weak.

mikeeberhart

mikeeberhart reviewed v1.5 RC4 on Dec 20, 2007

I give this a 1 for the simple reason that I have WANTED to review the product for well over a month, but their online demo site is "offline" yet, and it still refers to version 1.5rc1 on the demo page, meaning this hasn't been updated in ages (and likely will not be).

Sure, I could install locally, but I really just wanted to check it out online to see if it would be worth a detailed onsite review. I'm sure I am not the only one looking at the product site and then just leaving when I can't view a demo. Seems prudent to put the demo online if you are going to publish a news-release that would attract potential users.

Joomla is the most easy to use, if not the best, CMS available right now. It's good on its own, but with new components and "Mambots" you can do practically everything that big-name sites like MySpace, CNN, or *****tube are doing. Unlike Wordpress, it's not blog-centric, and unlike Drupal, you don't have to be a PHP programmer to use it effectively.

There truly is very little competition for the new 1.5 of Joomla. All the work done in just little over a year since the split from Mambo is amazing. I like Drupal and give it high marks also but it is not nearly as complete a system as Joomla. I usually don't review a project (yes, shame on me) but, I had to rebut several of Ian C. comments below. First, Joomla has a real backend (unlike Drupal which cannot make up its mind - you Drupal users know what I mean), secondly SEF (search friendly urls) are built-in into 1.5 just turn them on in the config; not to mention that there are probably a dozen free add-ons (and several commercial ones too) for the current 1.0.13. The developer community for Joomla is much larger than any other system (see extensions.joomla.org). Most if not all those supposed commercial extensions have nothing comparable at Drupal or any other open CMS (most offer free versions of their products also). Yes, there a some things that other systems do better (not many) but for all its worth Joomla is hands down the best out there right now and Joomla 1.5 cements this fact even more so. I will admit, the one negative aspect about 1.5 is going the upgrade path from the current 1.0 code. In my opinion (and others) this is will not be as fluid as I would have liked but never-the-less it looks to worth the small hassle that users may encounter.

Joomla is decent, I used it for several years, even before it branched off from Mambo. However it is very slow compared to lots of other CMS web apps. Not only that, but unfortunately many of the big closed source/commercial modules followed it over from Mambo. For example, it doesn't have clean URL's natively, and if you want a module that does that, the only one available is a commercial product :(. Also the development is extremely slow, and I would attribute that to the outrageously huge and unorganized/monolithic code base.

I found Drupal (www.drupal.org) not to long ago, which is also an open source CMS. I would recommend everyone try Drupal. With Drupal making new templates from scratch takes days, not weeks like it does with Joomla. Drupal has built in clean URL support, not to mention lots of other things Joomla only has as addons, a much cleaner admin interface, and a much much smaller and more organized code base, not to mention blazing fast development.

Edit: actually upon reviewing the Joomla addon site, it appears that a large portion of the addons are commercially licensed. Which is definately worth bumping this review down from a 3 to a 2. I had no idea that much of the commercial/closed source community had followed Joomla.

Great CMS with tons of components, modules, plugins and templates that let you deeply customize your website and easily manage/update it.
Give it a try, it's opensource!

Joomla! is one of the best available! Forget managing your website by hand... let Joomla! do all the work. Hundreds upon hundreds of extensions available (extensions.joomla.org) to make Joomla! work for you.

It's worth a try, especially for personal or corporate websites! (Oh, and it is free too!)

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Response to 'Ian C.' a few reviews above...

Your review is somewhat inaccurate. In the 1.5 (beta 2) you reviewed, it supports Search-Engine-Friendly (SEF) URLs. Simply enable it in the Configuration.

There are about 10x free extensions for Joomla compared to Commercial extensions. Although I'm not one to heavily use commercial extensions, I would see it as a positive sign that commercial developers see Joomla as a worthy CMS. The flexibility and ease of use is a major drawing factor for Joomla, including commercial extension developers.
