Drupal and Contao

Comment by Stonelabs
about Joomla Feb 2013

Drupal is a very strong CMS (CMF), the alternative to Drupal in more simple it's Contao (formely Typolight).
Contao is a CMF so
Very simple, very clean in the code, i love this cms. Joomla is cool but here code isn't clean et enough professionnel.
If you don't know Contao, tryiest it ! Strong, modulable, easy and clean

about Joomla and Contao Jan 2013

This used to be the go-to CMS a few years ago, and it is very well supplied with themes and plugins and stuff. But nowadays there are better CMS out there that are more intuitive to use and just do a plain better job overall. It does a lot, but nothing really good. Also not very easy to create templates for. I suggest trying out Contao instead.

Comment by Furgelnod
about Joomla Jun 2011

A brilliant CMS. Open-source, not too step a learning curve with the interface but the best point is Joomla is highly extensible, there are literally hundreds of easy to incorporate "plugins" for just about anything you may want on your site. I would highly recommend Joomla to anyone making a site.
