about this drupal vs joomla blog

The Mission of this Blog is to inspire conversations related to the best open source content management systems available today.
Is your Favorite CMS Drupal? or Joomla?
Or do you blog on wordpress…
Participate in the conversation here about your Favorite CMS
Im using Joomla, Drupal, WordPress, Pligg, Mambo, and Moodle.
Best – Matt
My engagement with the Drigg for Drupal Theme Development Project has ended.
Im going to collect a few notes on the Drupal Theme Development project and post here later, for now I want to discuss the future of this blog.
I have an interest in keeping a presence in the Drupal Community.
But have so much more experience with Joomla and other OS content management systems that I have to go back to school just to accomplish fundamental tasks with the Drupal CMS.
As for the Drupal Theme Blog on WordPress I am going to be posting articles on Joomla, Drupal, WordPress and other Open Source Content Management Systems.
The goal of this Blog is now to support discussion and opinion of the current CMS development strategies.
So share in the conversation by commenting and I will link back to your site and continue the conversation.
To your continued success with Drupal, Joomla, and WordPress!
This is where I started….
I am going to start by putting together some notes on creating a social voting and social bookmarking website for Drupal.
Beginning with a look at the current Drupal Social Bookmarking module Drigg, I will compare the functionality of the existing Module with sites like Digg.com and the Pligg project.
Creating a few new features is important for any new Drupal Theme to be well received by the Drupal programmers community.
Thanks to WordPress.com for maintaining a great Blogging and CMS Platform.
To your continued success as a fellow Drupal Theme Developer.


You know I am a fan of Joomla, having developed sites for clients and my own use with Joomla 1.5 from the day it was released.

Now i’m developing sites with Drupal and find that 3 weeks into Drupal Development I miss Joomla.

For me the administrative and aesthetic focus of Joomla is more intuitive than Drupal.

Everything from altering your Site HTML and CSS to loading new modules, components, and plugins, is right on the same screen in the Joomla administrator panel.

I also wanted to toss in a screenshot of the New WordPress Dashboard, or administrator panel… I think they get first prize for admin panel!! between the thee big os cms. This blog is on WordPress clearly.

This drupal theme blog is about drupal theme development for the most part, I just like to rant a bit every so often…
Wordpress vs Joomla vs Drupal count me with the Joomla crowd at least for today.
