What’s Common ?
All three of the web’s most popular CMS have a lot in
common in terms of technology, philosophy, and
WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal are all free and open
source software licensed under GPL.
All three of them are written primarily in PHP.
All three of them use themes and templates for visual
appearance of sites, andplugins, modules, or extensions
for extending features.
They all support MySQL as their database management
system. WordPress exclusively supports only MySQL,
while Joomla and Drupal support other database
As open source software, they are all community-driven
Ease of use and Beginner
Wordpress - WordPress comes with a famous five minute
install. Most WordPress hostingproviders also offer one click
install of WordPress. This makes it fairly easy for a new
user start a WordPress blog in minutes, not hours.
Joomla - Joomla installation may not look as quick as
WordPress, but it has very similar steps. Apart from that many
shared hosting providers offer one click install packages for
Joomla as well.
Drupal – Drupal’s installation is similar to both Joomla and
WordPress. Simply download and upload the package and run
the installation script.
Wordpress – WordPress has a strong community of users.
You can find WordPress help on official support forums, docs,
handbooks, codex, Slack channels, Stack Exchange, and
almost every forum on the internet about web design and
Joomla - Joomla, just like WordPress has a large and very
helpful community. There is an extensive documentation on the
Joomla website which is a valuable resource for beginners. For
more interactive support, users can join forums, mailing lists,
IRC chatrooms, etc.
Drupal - Drupal has a very proactive community of fans and
users. You will find all the community support options for Drupal
just like WordPress and Joomla. There is extensive
documentation, support forum, mailing lists, user groups, irc
chatrooms. All good places to get advice and free help.
Wordpress – WordPress does an excellent job at offering a
good platform to build a multilingual site. It does not support
multiple languages out of the box, but there are some excellent
plugins that allow you to easily create a WordPress multilingual
Joomla - Joomla comes with out of the box capability to handle
a multilingual website without installing any extension. Simply
go to language manager, add a content language and start
creating multilingual content on your website.
Drupal - Drupal comes with built-in support to handle non-
English or multilingual sites. You will need to enable locale and
content translation modules. After that you can add site and
admin interface languages from Drupal’s configuration section.
Wordpress – Being the most popular CMS in the
world, WordPress based websites are often targeted by
hackers. However, WordPress is built on a very secure
code, and it responds to security vulnerability very
quickly. WordPress also has an auto-update mechanism
which allows WordPress websites to automatically
update when there is a new security patch.
WordPress sites can be further secured with automated
backups, two factor authentication, and other best
There is also a built-in mechanism to show updates for
WordPress themes and plugins. This allows themes and
plugin developers to rapidly respond to any security
Joomla - Joomla is very similar to WordPress when it
comes to security. They actively respond to any security
vulnerability and are very quick to patch it up. However,
maintaining a website and installing updates is still up
to the user.
There are extensions available to backup your Joomla
site. You can also strengthen your Joomla site’s security
by following the same best practices as WordPress.
Drupal - Drupal takes a very serious approach to
security. They publish security vulnerabilities on their
own site as they are discovered and patched. There is a
perception that Drupal is more secure because you
don’t hear about Drupal sites being hacked as often,
but that could be cause it’s not as popular Joomla or
Drupal, Joomla and WordPress are all fantastic
content management systems. Drupal and Joomla
come with many more built-in features than
WordPress. However, WordPress beats them with
its ease of use, huge global community, plugins and
themes. We feel that most non-developer users
would find it much easier to build with WordPress
than Joomla or Drupal.
