Joomla! is currently the most popular Open Source Web Content Management System (WCM or CMS). It offers non technical users the opportunity to develop and maintain simple or sophisticated websites.
Joomla! comes with an extensive feature set 'out of the box', including LDAP integration, templating, banners, content syndication, polls, contacts, news feeds, workflow and start/stop dates for publishing.
A notable feature of Joomla! is its enthusiastic community and 3rd party component developer eco-system. Hundreds of free and commercial components are available to extend Joomla! to accomplish most of the things that a web master could wish.We have experience of extending Joomla! to create ecommerce websites, social networking sites, and membership websites.
Joomla! is also undergoing rapid development, as new features (such as Access Control Levels) are added to the platform. Soon Joomla! will emerge to be the contender of choice for any small to medium sized organisation wishing for a content managment system that combines power, sophistication and simplicity in one neat and manageable package.
Built using Open Source PHP and MySQL, Joomla! can be hosted on shared or dedicated servers, meaning it is within reach of individuals, small businesses and public sector organisations. Users of Joomla! include:
UIWE have developed a whole host of Joomla! websites for public sector organistions such as Leicestershire & Rutland Probation Service, Music East Midlands and Rainbows Children's Hospice.We have also developed a large number of SME websites using Joomla! including The 2 Lucys, CSB Environmental, and Gist Consulting.
