Content Management System Roulette

Recently, I stumbled across this helpful article, detailing the differences between Joomla, WordPress, and Drupal, the big three when it comes to content management systems (CMS).  If you're wondering which CMS to choose, you should give the article a read.

joomla-drupal-wordpress

We've used all three, with about 80% WordPress, 15% Joomla and 5% Drupal. Here's the basic rules of thumb I've developed to help guide client work.

Should you choose Joomla, WordPress or Drupal for your next project?

I've also used Ruby on RAILS ... fantastic capability for creating web apps. Support is tough for this one - RAILS is in high demand ... meaning 'simple fixes' can cost a lot. Not territory for amateurs (I hired my development out).

What's your go-to CMS?

CHALLENGE:

ACT has recently begun re-selling the classroom ModelMaker, but did not have a web platform to showcase the product OR a place for ModelMaker users to collaborate. They also needed a product video to help their re-sellers illustrate the paradigm-shaking potential of this new 3D-Printer.

SOLUTION:

Design and build a Joomla Website based on a pro-level Joomla 1.5 Template (RocketTheme) and integrate the following third-party components:

Forum - Kunena
eCommerce - VirtueMart
User Management - Communuty Builder

Produce a 60-second video targeted to educators.

THE RESULTS:

ModelMaker NATION
