Joomla!

Joomla! is a free open source website development and content management (CMS) platform.

Like other content management systems, Joomla! removes much of the technical aspect of setting up and running a website.

Some significant features:

  • Provides plugs ins and site modules to enhance websites and content.

  • Over 6000 extensions available.

  • Responsive templates adapt websites for various platforms, including mobile devices.

  • Permission levels restrict site user file access while giving site workers access to the files they need to do their particular jobs.

  • Support for different languages for different sites or site sections.

  • Supports polls, search and web link management and analysis.
