Comparing Drupal, Joomla and WordPress

First, let’s get in to the root of our analysis just in case you have no clue what a CMS platform is. In simple terms, it is an application that allows you to edit, publish, and modify content from a centralized interface. The main goal behind the growth of CMS platforms is the efficiency and simplicity it affords users. The beauty with most of the platforms is that they are open source meaning that you have the luxury to choose among them depending on what you are looking to achieve.

Take note of the Features

In terms of features, these three platforms are known to afford unbeatable options to users. WordPress is however known to be the friendlier to new users owing to its easy to use interface. In fact, setting up a new website is much easier in WordPress than in Drupal and Joomla. If you are an advanced user though, you will find Joomla and Drupal easier to navigate through.

Know the Kind of Site You Want to Develop

The key to picking up a CMS platform that suits you is to pick the platform that fits into your needs. To achieve this, you have to devise a web design plan then look into the options available. If you look to develop a simple website-perhaps news or a blog, then WordPress would be well suited for you. A step higher, Joomla does provide a platform for you to build fairly complex sites in the realm of structure. If you want to build e-commerce or social networking sites with a bit of complex designs then Joomla is the best fit for you. Drupal on the other hand boosts admirable levels of scale owing to its ability to build sites ranging from simple to the most complex. So, if you are looking to build a site with complex data organization and structure, then you now know that Drupal will work for you.

CMS Community

This might not sound important but the extend at which a given CMS platform is adopted around the globe is crucial when making a choice between the options. CMS popularity will prove important in the case you are stuck and you need some help in a given development challenge. http://texas.cleantalk.org/ Take a simple example of a case whereby you are installing a plugin in a given platform then you get some sort of strange error. Naturally you would rush into the Internet for solutions but what happens if the platform is not used by a good number of developers? You will surely not get enough information to solve your problem quickly. CMS popularity also affects the number of plugins you have access to in a given platform meaning that the more popular the platform is, the higher the number.

The good thing is that all the three platforms have been adopted by a good number of worldwide developers to back you up whenever you hit the red flag. However, WordPress seems to be leading the race with Joomla and Drupal both in the chasing pack. It should however be noted that basing your choices on the popularity of a CMS platform will only be more feasible if you are a newbie in the web development business as accomplished programmers usually find it easy to cope with the challenges that come with the complexity of Drupal and Joomla.

Now that you have an overview of the points to note when choosing your platform, it is time for you to choose.

Два крупных британских банка начали внутреннее расследование по поводу возможных взяток ФИФА, которые могли проводить через счета в Barclays и Standard Chartered. ВВС напоминает, что, помимо этих банков, в документах ФБР упоминался также банк HSBC. Кроме того, в воскресенье на родине футбола прозвучали призывы бойкотировать ближайший чемпионат мира под эгидой ФИФА, который пройдет в России. Англия, впрочем, призывает к этому европейскую федерацию УЕФА, а в одиночку действовать не хочет. Еще одно расследование начала Швейцария, по предположениям СМИ, оно может затронуть и главу ФИФА Йозефа Блаттера.

Сообщения о начале расследования в ВВС подтвердили лишь в банке Standard Chartered. Barclays и HSBC от комментариев отказались.

На текущей неделе Зепп Блаттер был переизбран президентом ФИФА, что в связи с грандиозным коррупционным скандалом не устроило многие национальные Ассоциации, прежде всего в Европе и Латинской Америке. Россия поддерживала Блаттера, а после его переизбрания на очередной 4-летний срок президент Путин обещал, что страна “приложит все усилия”, чтобы принять ЧМ достойно. Англия – первая страна, прямо высказавшаяся за бойкот мероприятия.

Версии: бойкот и альтернативная ассоциация

О возможном бойкоте мирового первенства заявил президент английской футбольной ассоциации Грег Дайк после того, как к этому призвал депутат Энди Бернхэм. Тот, как передает Huffington Post, призвал к единоличному бойкоту, указав также на “аннексию Крыма” Россией, которую, по его словам, нельзя игнорировать.

Дайк более сдержан: он считает, что действовать надо всей Европе, и при этом готов поддержать усилия других стран. “Мы не собираемся выходить откуда-либо по собственной инициативе лишь потому, что мы такие правильные. Если бы это случилось, ФИФА продолжит жить дальше, не так ли? Но если УЕФА захочет бойкотировать чемпионат мира, мы, определенно, могли бы пойти на это вместе”, – сообщил глава английской футбольной ассоциации.

У него есть сторонники и в другой крупной европейской футбольной державе – Германии. Там в воскресенье прозвучали призывы создать альтернативную ФИФА ассоциацию. Она бы вела дела честно и прозрачно. “Европейские футбольные федерации должны, наконец, сделать выводы из перевыборов Блаттера”, – заявил вице-председатель Европейского парламента Александр Граф Ламбсдорф, интервью которого изданию Welt am Sonntag цитирует DW.

По мнению политика, основные федерации, представленные лучшими футбольными командами планеты, могли бы объединиться во “Всемирную футбольную ассоциацию” (World Football Association” (WFA).

“Как будет называться чемпионат мира – Кубок мира ФИФА или Всемирный чемпионат WFA – не так важно. Решающим является желание болельщиков видеть футбол в исполнении лучших команд мира, которым ответственно и без скандалов руководит международная организация”, – уверен Ламбсдорф. Ему видится, что ядром такой федерации должна стать Европа. “Если пять ведущих футбольных наций Европы – Германия, Англия, Испания, Франция и Италия – объявят о своей готовности стать ядром WFA, то к ним в самое короткое время присоединятся США, Япония и Австралия. Присоединение к новой федерации Аргентины и Бразилии будет означать спортивный и экономический конец ФИФА Блаттера”, – полагает политик.
