Overall Satisfaction with Joomla!

As a webdesign agency, we had implemented in different organizations with multiple users and responsibilities. One of the best features of this CMS (Content Management system) is the versatility to create users and assign them different access to components and/or modules. Beside the editorial profile you can give to each user to write, review or edit content. You can assign to each user or group of users access to specific areas (components, category of articles, specific articles, etc.) inside your administrative portal with the chance to just read and or write on the assigned sections.
  • Basic SEO, with very limited knowledge you are able to manage titles, meta tag descriptions and keywords, create sitemaps. And provide the initial elements every search engine require for indexing your webpage.
  • Responsive templates, you have a broad list of templates and components which are responsive and help your site adapt to desktop, tablets and phone without any problem. Also the opportunity to create specif modules just for any combination of devices (desktop, tablets or phones).
  • Broad list of components and modules, are you looking for an specific requirement for your website. You will find an application (component), Module or plugin already created that will avoid you development time. And the awareness that all software are supported and evolving with new features.
  • Update notification, even though you can see from your administrator access when a component, module or plugin needs to be updated. It would be great to get email notification when new versions arrive.
  • More Community user features, you can use different components to create a community of users. But it would be great to have the opportunity to create new information field for the user profile, picture and social platform links as a features in joomla user management.
  • More video tutorials introducing joomla and main features as specif information about installation and configuration.
  • As a CMS, It reduce the implementation time and multiple functionalities are already included.
  • Allow you to create customized software over Joomla
  • Allow you to use other Database different to mySQL and User access as LDAP in case your corporation already have some infrastructure created and running.
Even though Wordpress had increased its exposure lately and developed a broad presence with Blog implementations. I feel you can get same effect using K2 and the possibility to expand functions in your website.
