So what exactly is Joomla! CMS?
Joomla! has become one of the most powerful Open Source Content Management Systems on the planet and is used by millions of people worldwide.
It is a 'free' open source framework and content publishing system designed for quickly creating highly interactive multi-language Web sites, online communities, media portals, blogs and eCommerce applications.
The name 'Joomla' is derived from the Swahili word 'Jumla', which means 'all together'.
Who uses Joomla!... apart from us?
Joomla! is used all over the world to power everything from simple, personal homepages to complex corporate web applications. Here are just some of the ways this award winning CMS solution is used:
Corporate websites or portals
Real Estate Websites
Hotel and Tourism websites
Small business websites
Non-profit and organizational websites
Corporate intranets and extranets
School and church websites
Personal or family homepages
Magazines and newspapers
the possibilities are seemingly endless…
Joomla! can be used to easily manage every aspect of your website, from adding content and images to updating a product catalogue, processing credit card payments or taking online reservations.
The difference between Joomla! and commercial CMS solutions?
Unlike commercial solutions that offer different versions according to your budget, Joomla! is available in just one 'all encompassing' version - and it is cost free.
Many commercial CMS solutions boast a vast array of modules - in some cases up to 80 of them. Joomla! offers an awesome amount of extensions that currently numbers at more than 7.700. Wow!
Joomla! has been downloaded more than 50.000.000 times. - Yes! Fifty million times.
A big advantage you should not overlook...
If your company or organization hires a third party Joomla! developer such as 'Navega Bem' or builds in-house software using the Joomla! framework, you are building on an open platform that does not tie you to any one design company, developer or to a proprietary, closed application. You own your site and can develop it with anyone you choose. This is of huge importance if things begin to go wrong with your current design company. Be smart - use Joomla!
Is a CMS website search engine friendly?
CMS offers the best platform to develop sites that meet all the SEO requirements.
HTML layout is well formed with no nestled tables making it easy to read for crawlers.
We can ensure that URL's do not have any query strings. The URL's can be of the type www.yoursite.com/pagename.html Such URL's are extremely Search engine friendly.
Meta keywords can be defined at a global level (across the site) and also at page level.
Is a CMS web site difficult to maintain?
Once Joomla! is installed and running, it is simple for even non-technical users to add or edit content, update images, and to manage the critical data that makes your company or organization effective. Anybody with basic word processing skills can easily learn to manage a Joomla! site.
See our 1 minute demo video which shows just how easy it is to update your CMS website and publish it online... in just one minute!
Via a simple, browser-based interface you will be able to easily add new press releases or news items, manage staff pages, job listings, product images, and create an unlimited amount of sections or content pages on your site.
What about multi-lingual web sites?
Probably one of the biggest advantages of our CMS solution is its ability to run multi-lingual web sites - and there is only one 'back office' to manage it all! Joomla recognises a users browser language and automatically displays a site in the users language if it is available. Of course users may switch to other languages manually as they wish.
