Joomla

Joomla is a user friendly content management system

You can no longer make a sophisticated internet presence with static websites nowadays. If you would like to retain your viewers, you will need to regularly update your site and deliver new content – and a content management system will make this all a lot easier. A good content management system is characterised by a high level of user friendliness which does not require any extensive programming skills or HTML knowledge. Joomla is one such system, which is also offered as an open source software. This means you will not need to pay any licensing fees. Joomla has a modern and flexible design and is also one of the most widely used open source content management systems – in addition to WordPress and Drupal.

Joomla’s customer target group includes first and foremost freelancers, the self-employed and small and mid-sized business owners. Then you have clubs, institutions and organisations who want to publish content which is regularly updated and changed online. Joomla lets content be directly and easily edited, proficiency in word processing as well as basic knowledge of spreadsheets and graphics editing is enough to be able to use Joomla. Further technical skills are not necessary for maintaining the website. Joomla offers the advantage that content can be assembled from prefabricated components and that multiple editors can maintain the website. Publishing information is not tied to one single person, any user with the rights can edit text directly in the network with Joomla. This means that different pages can be edited by multiple users at the same time and uploaded. The rights of each individual user can be set specifically.

Manage Joomla websites without programming knowledge

This not only creates a collaborative approach, but also a reproducible workflow: the path of information from creation up to control up to publication can be determined and traced back. There are always extensions available for Joomla: image galleries, news modules, download centre and much more. These extensions are also freely available from the content management system. They can then be visually integrated into the design of the website.
