b2ap3_thumbnail_joomlavswordpress.jpgIt is well known that wordpress is the best CMS for simple sites and for new users that want to develop a site or blog without special knowledge.

But what is the case if a design developer want to make a heavy site for a serius company?

This is what we talk about on this article.

It is quite difficult to obtain accurate and knowledge information the differences between WordPress and Joomla especially by comparison scenarios because the information is usually outdated.

I am not wanting to hand over a success either way I am just trying to illustrate some critical differences of precisely what I perceive to become the differences and hold those observations from your developer capable point of view.

Now, I have gone over this info using developers for the two systems and I find a lot of the responses oddly just biased in relation to what system that they like doing... Kind of not like a "ok yea your right that is certainly currently a limitation of xyz.

So lets start off. And please the particular response and function of this post is to go to a vast comprehension of what two systems have to give you.

1st. plugins usually are bad. Let's deal with it. WordPress is just like the windows for vulnerabilities and attacks because it is the more popular cms. Joomla is guilty/susceptible to this particular as well but I need to say WP is worse. Moreover, and I read this particular and totally consent. Wordpress or Joomla for instance is a downgrading assest. What does that mean? Overtime your sites will probably be worth less and in a growing number of danger based when ones ability or perhaps organizational effort to update and keep core updates and plugin updates. A badly coded or perhaps ignored WP plugin can leave your internet site hacked and sacrificed. I've seen this happen often.

You will hear developers say over and over again that they "want to get off plugins".

Now, my activities and conclusions usually are this. The extensions, extensions, and components from Joomla's top dev contractors are Vastly more advanced than Wordpress's similar work.

There are Joomal components that can provide you an remarkable blog, forum, or social network into your internet site in minutes. remarkable. WordPress doesn't come near to the level of quality these products deliver.

Winner on quality and amount of capability for iphone app extensions = Joomla certainly

2nd. Configuration is key...

WordPress seems firm. Everything is in relation to its template. Yes you will find custom-post-types, plugins and widgets deeply engrained into the template you are using with regards to custom-post-types.

With Joomla I'm able to develop a element or module that can be placed anywhere upon my site using per page quality. Meaning, if I would like component A to become on mysite/component then i am able to do this. I have exactly the same control with a module. Wordpress can't accomplish that. In a way it may but again you're in your template rather than being a individual entity... So when styling your internet site I can consist of component exactly the way I need it based upon our template. With WP you better hope you like your template or you may be hacking it. which can be what I do all day.

Finally. Joomla is MVC and WordPress is function  after function soon after function = Extensions that cause Excessive Server Load!!!
I don't understand how Joomla people don't come firing using this reality and again it isn't to bash WP but it really is to illustrate a real possibility. Wordpress has large server load using high traffic web-sites. Period.

Winner = Joomla if you have a developer around to customize the functionalities you want.

3rd Menu projects and organization appears to be better for Joomla. If I want some other page I need to use a custom-post-type seeing that discussed earlier. With joomla this is usually a module or a component. With that claimed I can demand backend via Joomla 3. XXX and assign menus per template.That is really powerful and allows to generate varying looks of different sites within a subdomain or subfolder structure... This just can not be achieved in WordPress. We have heard people declare use Multisite. No multisite does not allow for multitemplate... without certainly a hack along with a plugin. Which multisite is a whole lot worse for server heap. so this will not be an option.

Again WP can perform a custom-post-type using the template it is inside... This does not allow for flexibility if I don't want it to appear a certain way or be different for a subfolder or perhaps subdomain of our site.

Winner = Joomla!

So for advanced and heavy sites joomla works better.

How to Secure Your WordPress Site or Blog.


WordPress is the most popular application and has been highly used by bloggers. Since WordPress uses MySQL and Php, it is common for hackers to find a vulnerability in WordPress. Here are some tips to Secure your WordPress site.


WordPress is probably the best CMS out there for blogging but is used for all types of sites as well. We offer this awesome CMS for many years for client sites. We know well that Wordpress, Joomla, Drupal and similar applications need some regular Basic work to keep them away from hacking attempts.


Useful tips to Secure Your WordPress Site or Blog:

 1.  Update WordPress

Keeping your WordPress up to date is the first and basic security tip. This is something that you never want to miss, whenever WordPress is sending an update, it means that they have fixed some bugs, added some features and most importantly added some security features and fixes. You never want to miss out on this.

 Please Update as soon as possible.

 Specially, with one click update, it’s easier to upgrade your site. Make sure, your theme and plugins are compatible with the update or else update them too. If an update has been rolled out and it’s  not a security update, just wait for 10-15 days, before other users stop reporting any bugs.


2. Update WordPress Plugins

 As, I mentioned above WordPress releases an update to fix bugs and security holes, and same goes with plugins. Many times, a vulnerable plugin or script used, can cause WordPress hacking. Some plugins are not updated by the programmers they created them, avoid those. Always, use the plugins which are constantly updated and get good support. Being dependent on such plugins, which are not updated from long is a bad idea.



Drupal website Migration to giganetwebhosting.com top web hosting.

How to move your Drupal web site.


On the old site

  1. Document the modules used, their versions and paths etc.
  2. Document the temporary directory folder to be used in admin/settings/file-system and either prepare to edit this after restoring the database or make sure the same path exists on both sites.
  3. Set site to maintenance mode: in Administer → Site maintenance, choose "Off line".
  4. Consider updating Drupal core and modules before the migration
  5. Turn off clean URLs (Administer → "Clean URLs") Remember that, from now on, you'll enter the administrator part through www.example.com/?q=user ("user" should not be replaced by any user name.)
  6. Clear data from the cache tables. These are unnecessary for transfer and cause confusion when tidying up the data. The devel module and admin menu module contain links to do this easily, otherwise visit www.example.com/admin/settings/performance and click the "Clear cached data" button at the bottom of the page.
  7. Backup your mysql database on your old host using phpadmin, select your mysql database, usually something like "name_drpl1". Select all fields, click "export" and save the database to your local harddisk. Leave default options enabled. You will receive a file similar to "name_drpl1.sql".
    This is your mysql database
  8. If your old site is public (on the web), consider setting your site on line: Administer → Site maintenance, choose "On line". Of course, all the modifications made on the old server from now on (readers' comments, forums posts, etc.) will be lost. Therefore, if you set back your old website on line and if it's public (on the web), consider blocking new comments to avoid users frustrations: Administer → Permissions.
  9. Copy the whole Drupal code – core, modules, themes, and download them if necessary or, better, transfer them directly to the new server. You could choose to use new copies instead on the new site.
  10. Copy the files directory and any similar directories (such as image galleries) and download them if necessary, or, better, transfer them directly to the new server.
