Should I use Wordpress or Joomla?

    Hi,

    I want to rebuild a website and move its content onto a CMS. Site is currently hand-coded.

    I know Joomla is more sophisticated and I think Wordpress is simpler to use. But I don't know which one is the best for me.
    SEMrush
    The goal is to develop, extend the site (which is a blog-like site) and add more complex features to it, to modify the design/layout/template and I also need the best security (against hacking).

    So: should I choose Joomla or Wordpress? And why?

    Thank you in advance! :D

    Joomla is a pretty big CMS and managing it takes a lot of time. You better go with WordPress, works great for me and it can be expandable as well.

    If you asked about most used then its Wordpress. You need to list your feature wishlist for your website and accordingly select between Joomla and wordpress as both and few plus and few minus points.

    I think it will be Wordpress. But what would be the disadvantages of Wordpress, then?

    Since it doesn’t require PHP or HTML knowledge, WordPress is definitely simpler to use. Even though Joomla is much more sophisticated, managing it can be time-consuming. However, when it comes to WordPress, there are numerous concerns about data security, it requires a lot of plugins to be installed, modifying tables, date fields, and/or graphics format can be more complicated and it demands a certain understanding of PHP language. In conclusion, WordPress is a fantastic choice if you want to make a simple website. If you want a more secure and serious website, I would suggest a cost-effective web hosting service.

    If you are looking for security then Joomla is best and otherwise, for other aspects like Customization, SEO, Wordpress is better and Simple.
    Now it is up to you to choose the best one, so I recommend you to read some articles on it and note down your requirements then take any decision.
