Ever since people first started blogging, there has been a constant dispute about which content management system is the best. This is why we’ve decided to make an honest comparison between the three most popular ones and see where they excel and where their weaknesses are.
A CMS is an essential tool for bloggers and publishers in general, as it can be used for creating, deleting, publishing, editing content, and allowing multiple bloggers to manage the same site with little to no coding experience.
WordPress is the most popular CMS in the world. There are several reasons for this:
- Learning to use WordPress is easy
- WordPress is free
- It offers a lot of plugins
- It’s the main blogging platform
- It has a great community and finding information about it is easy
Many people agree that WordPress is in fact the best CMS and there is probably truth to this, considering the fact that over 75 million websites are powered by WordPress.
The second most popular content management platform is Joomla. It is suitable for social networking websites, blogging and e-commerce. It’s very similar to WordPress, but it requires a bit of technical skill and this is why it’s in second place. People describe it as a middle-solution between WordPress and Drupal.
Out of these three, Drupal is the hardest one to use, as it requires solid technical skills in PHP, CSS and HTML. However, it compensates for this by offering a lot more options and complexity. It offers countless customization options and it’s completely free to use, so it can suit the needs of both simple and complex websites.
