Joomla - Frequently Asked Questions

What is Joomla?

Joomla is a content managed system (CMS). This is basically a piece of software that will enable you to configure your own website by using simple forms. Want to change the wording on one of your web pages without needing a web designer? - a CMS will let you do this simply and quickly from any machine that is connected to the internet (after you have securely logged onto the system first).

Joomla is a very powerful system that will let you control every aspect of your website from menus to videos and everything in-between.

How do I get Joomla onto my website?

If we are building a website from scratch, I install and configure Joomla for you and add the initial content, as well as configure the template so the site looks how you want it. If you already have an existing website, then we simply move the existing content into a fresh install of Joomla.

What can Joomla do for me?

Here are just some examples of what Joomla can do for you, whatever size of website you have:

  • Business and Corporate websites or portals of any size (particularly good for small businesses)
  • Intranets and extranets for business or clubs etc.
  • Online magazines, blogs and newspapers
  • E-commerce and booking systems
  • Government solutions and applications
  • Charity and other non-profit websites
  • School and educational websites

Whatever you need, Joomla will almost certainly be able to deliver it for you.

How popular is Joomla and is it supported?

Joomla has been in existence for over ten years and has over 8 million users world-wide. The core systems is constantly developed and system updates are regular. 3rd party developers create extensions that plug-into the core system and make Joomla even more powerful than it is out of the box.

Is it expensive?

Joomla doesn't have a fixed cost, so we can be flexible with pricing. Joomla is suitable for any size of website and because it is an open-source platform it is massively cheaper than any other bespoke CMS system available.

I sit down with you and understand what it is you need, then we can create steps to complete your site within your budget, and on time.

Joomla is very modular. This means we can easily bolt-on extra functionality later on, thus enabling you to build your site according to budget over a period of time.

How do I find out more, or begin a Joomla site?

Just give me a call or send me an email to discuss your requirements and we can go through the details. Don't worry, I talk in English not geek-speak so you will understand and be able to make justifiable business decisions to make your website grow.

Does Joomla have a website so I can learn more?

Yes - you can vist their website here
