I've come to know Joomla! through work, but use it for my own personal sites as well!
Overall Satisfaction with Joomla!
Our company Cloudaccess.net is a Joomla! hosting company that specializes in hosting Joomla! sites optimally and offering most excellent support to our clients and customers who are building their websites using Joomla! on our platform.
- Joomla! is very user friendly for all experience levels.
- Joomla! is extremely flexible in the sense that you can build any type of website you want including an advanced E-commerce site or social media. The possibilities are endless.
- The Extensions and templates that are available to use in building your site is wonderful. You can get beautiful designs from template manufactures in the community and at good costs as well as well functioning extensions that give you the abilities and functionalities you are looking for to make your sites vision come together.
- The ACL manager for advanced user control is also a great feature. Being able to easily set up different access control levels for different types of users is a wonderful attribute. It can be as simple or complex as you need it to be.
- I cannot think of any improvements I would like to see at this moment. The new version release has addressed a few of the previous bugs/ issues
- Our company only offers Joomla hosting as a product. We do however use Joomla! for our own website and we have a wonderful web presence in my opinion.
I started working with Joomla! for my career working for Cloudaccess.net However I use Joomla! for my own personal sites as well and wouldn't want it any other way. It allows me to create beautiful websites without needing to know advances CSS coding. This was my biggest pro about using Joomla!, I know some coding here and there but not enough to code my own template or spend a lot of time entering custom stylizing to my Joomla! site. I simply find a nice template that is close to the look and feel I want and start plugging in my own content with minimal required customization to make it my own. It is a great CMS for any user level to use whether novice or advanced. I will always recommend Joomla!.
Many clients tend to ask if Joomla! is good for complex sites and I would always say absolutely. Joomla! is very flexible and you can make your site as complex as you need it to be. Many Fortune 500 companies and enterprise level businesses have used the Joomla! platform to present their products and represent their web presence. Like I stated before, the possibilities are endless, from your simple personal blog site to an E-commerce store with thousands of products.
