WordPress Holding Your Business Back? It’s Time for a Change

WordPress Holding Your Business Back? It’s Time for a Change

If you’ve been using WordPress for a while, but you’ve recognized its limitations are holding you back, it may be time to consider an upgrade for your website. Joomla! is the second most popular Content Management System (CMS) available, and though it’s less well-known than WordPress, there are over 2 million active websites on Joomla! It’s powerful, user-friendly, and it can elevate your website to the next level.


Think about WordPress like your old Crockpot. It’s trusty, reliable, and it’ll slow cook your favorite beef stew to tender perfection while you’re at work. But do you ever wish could do more? Maybe you’re short on time, last minute company is coming, and you need your stew done in 30 minutes instead of 6-8 hours. Maybe you’d like to be able to make some new recipes, something a little more advanced. And have you ever tried to make yogurt in a slow cooker? No, thanks. Then someone gifts you an Instant Pot, and it changes your cooking game completely. In addition to handling all the duties of your Crockpot, it’s a pressure cooker, steamer, rice cooker, and yes, even a yogurt maker. It’s advanced, but still user-friendly. Your old Crockpot goes to the thrift store, and you don’t even miss it.


Like the Instant Pot, Joomla! can do everything WordPress can do and more. Joomla! is free and open-source and can help you to quickly and easily build unlimited features on your website without jerry-rigging a plethora of extensions.


Among the main features that attract users to Joomla! are the flexibility and extensibility that’s intrinsic in its internal database structure. Everything you add uses the same access control system, privacy tracking, multilingual system, and more. Choose from thousands of templates to select the one(s) that best suit your needs. Instead of blending together extensions like pieces from mismatched jigsaw puzzles, Joomla’s powerful core allows you to seamlessly expand your website or application as your business needs progress.


Another benefit that comes out of the box with Joomla! is the ability to handle a multilingual site. Simply go to the language manager, add a content language, and start writing content. No extensions, and no hassle for you.


Joomla! 3.9 is also ideal for ensuring your site is General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliant. As you may know, the GDPR requirements became enforceable in May 2018, and violators may face heavy penalties. With Joomla’s Privacy Tool Suite, you can effortlessly require users to consent to your privacy policy and terms and conditions automatically. Also integrated into the core Joomla! package is the ability to track and manage information access and removal requests from your users. The user data removal requests are taken care of automatically, with all the personal data anonymized.


Joomla’s Access Control List (ACL) is another popular feature, particularly for larger organizations that need more options. Instead of simply permitting or completely denying access to users, Joomla! comes with nine different categories of user access for your convenience. You can also design your own custom groups as you need. Everything you add to your site uses the same ACL to make your experience seamless.
