    I have played with Joomla and Wordpress the most. Wordpress is by far my preferred framework. I appreciate the number of user contributions and plugins are are easily installed and updated. I have so far found a plugin or widget for all of my needs.

    Hello,
    If you want to develop a serious professional web portal, I think Joomla is better . But you should be a good developer because there are a lot of bugs on it , so you need to patch it & get it more secure .
    If you're trying something usual & normal Wordpress With be a good choice . Or to avoid installing ... you can start on blogspot & redirect to your domain Name .

    Joomla for me. Wordpress is a close second.

    It all comes down to what CMS will be used the most.
    If you have to work hard to post, you won't.
    Even as easy as WP is- some people can't even manage that. So- if you aren't techy- forget Drupal and Joomla.
    Still doesn't explain why everyone doesn't use a Mac instead of a PC- but, it's a start.
    The great thing is- once you start in WP- it's not too tough to move the content into either Joomla or Drupal- at least compared to a static site.

    Wordpress Pros

    * Simple to use - No need for modifications
    * Excellent for blogging or sharing thoughts in a sequential manner
    * Even the most elderly of users can get the hang of it quickly

    Wordpress Cons

    * Not developer friendly
    * The community seems to like to complain
    * Upgrades bring more bugs than fixes sometimes

    Drupal Pros

    * Extremely developer friendly. If I loved code more I would almost always pick this system.
    * Strong community to help discern the dozens (hundreds) of functions and tags available.
    * Can be used to create some really awesome websites that can outperform a majority of other sites out here.

    Drupal Cons

    * Not very designer and user-friendly. It's hard for someone with little code knowledge to make the leaps required to do the very cool things that Drupal is becoming known for.
    * Theming of Drupal has been a huge case of fail (until recently). Probably because it has been developers, not designers, that are making the themes.
    * Getting a Drupal website published could cost you more time, and thus more money, than Wordpress or Joomla.

    Joomla Pros

    * Friendly for all types of users - Designers, Developers and Administrators
    * Huge community is awesome for assisting with creation of websites
    * Has been rapidly growing and improving itself for the past three years

    Joomla Cons

    * Still not user-friendly enough for everyone to understand
    * Not quite as powerful as Drupal, and can be a bit confusing for some to jump into
    * Recently rebuilt the entire system from ground-up, and so there are still many out there sticking to the old versions (1.0.x)

    I think both Wp and JOOMLA are great.

    WP is certainly EASIER. I love the way you can install search/install plugins from the admin panel. tres cool.

    However, once you invest a bit of time, i feel that joomla is more powerful.

    I have a WPblog linked from my JOOMLA site

    have look.

    Granted, I put FAR less time/effort/money into the WP part, but I still think that joomla winds up looking more Pro, while WP looks like...WP.
