Joomla is a solid utility player, good for a variety of different situations, and it’s relatively straightforward to install and set up. There’s a bit of a learning curve to understand how the menus, site structure and content work and interrelate, but once you’ve got it the system provides a strong infrastructure for straightforwardly creating useful site structures to support even very large sites. Add-on modules support a wide variety of functionalities, from directories to shopping carts to community features, providing a solid base for many different kinds of sites.
Joomla’s adds robust permission features to allow people to add, edit or publish information based on site section, content type or more—if you require a complicated workflow, you will want to wait for this version. The new version also somewhat simplifies organization and display of content items. However, you are still limited to one category per article, which may lead to the need for duplication if you want to include it in more than one site section.
