Which CMS is Right for You?

If you are thinking about creating a new website or redesigning an existing one, it is important to choose a platform that will suit your needs for the long term. Choosing a good content management system (CMS) for your site will provide flexibility and allow you to regularly update your site with ease.

With so many open-source CMS options available, which one do you choose?  For a quick comparison, DeviousMedia has designed a very useful infographic that compares three of the most popular open source platforms: WordPress, Joomla! and Drupal.

For many applications, WordPress is the ideal solution. Here are some key facts from the infographic:

  1. WordPress is used by some of the major websites including Time, Wall Street Journal, MTV Newsroom and Ford.
  2. With over 14,000 plug-ins, WordPress has nearly double the amount of plug-ins than Joomla! and Drupal.
  3. There are close to 1,400 theme options, which makes it easy for users to change the look and feel of their website.
  4. Out of the top million websites, 14.3% runs WordPress; only 2.7% run Joomla! and 1.6% run Drupal.
  5. It costs less to setup and maintain a WordPress site.
  6. There are over 30 million global monthly Google searches for WordPress.
