Title: Difference Between Wordpress, Joomla and Drupal

  • vs
  • Wordpress Joomla

Whats Common ?
  • All three of the webs most popular CMS have a
    lot in common in terms of technology, philosophy,
    and community.
  • WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal are all free
    and open source software licensed under GPL. 
  • All three of them are written primarily in PHP.
  • All three of them use themes and templates for
    visual appearance of sites, andplugins, modules,
    or extensions for extending features.
  • They all support MySQL as their database
    management system. WordPress exclusively supports
    only MySQL, while Joomla and Drupal support other
    database management systems.
  • As open source software, they are all
    community-driven projects.

Ease of use and Beginner Friendliness
  • Wordpress - WordPress comes with a famous five
    minute install. Most WordPress hostingproviders
    also offer one click install of WordPress. This
    makes it fairly easy for a new user start a
    WordPress blog in minutes, not hours.

  • Joomla - Joomla installation may not look as
    quick as WordPress, but it has very similar
    steps. Apart from that many shared hosting
    providers offer one click install packages for
    Joomla as well.

  • Drupal Drupals installation is similar to both
    Joomla and WordPress. Simply download and upload
    the package and run the installation script.

Support Options
  • Wordpress WordPress has a strong community of
    users. You can find WordPress help on official
    support forums, docs, handbooks,
    codex, Slack channels, Stack Exchange, and almost
    every forum on the internet about web design and

  • Joomla - Joomla, just like WordPress has a large
    and very helpful community. There is an extensive
    documentation on the Joomla website which is a
    valuable resource for beginners. For more
    interactive support, users can join forums,
    mailing lists, IRC chatrooms, etc.

  • Drupal - Drupal has a very proactive community of
    fans and users. You will find all the community
    support options for Drupal just like WordPress
    and Joomla. There is extensive documentation,
    support forum, mailing lists, user groups, irc
    chatrooms. All good places to get advice and free

Localization Multi-Lingiual Support
  • Wordpress WordPress does an excellent job at
    offering a good platform to build a multilingual
    site. It does not support multiple languages out
    of the box, but there are some excellent plugins
    that allow you to easily create a WordPress
    multilingual site.

  • Joomla - Joomla comes with out of the box
    capability to handle a multilingual website
    without installing any extension. Simply go to
    language manager, add a content language and
    start creating multilingual content on your

  • Drupal - Drupal comes with built-in support to
    handle non-English or multilingual sites. You
    will need to enable locale and content
    translation modules. After that you can add site
    and admin interface languages from Drupals
    configuration section.

  • Wordpress Being the most popular CMS in the
    world, WordPress based websites are often
    targeted by hackers. However, WordPress is built
    on a very secure code, and it responds to
    security vulnerability very quickly. WordPress
    also has an auto-update mechanism which allows
    WordPress websites to automatically update when
    there is a new security patch.
  • WordPress sites can be further secured with
    automated backups, two factor authentication, and
    other best practices.
  • There is also a built-in mechanism to show
    updates for WordPress themes and plugins. This
    allows themes and plugin developers to rapidly
    respond to any security vulnerability.

  • Joomla - Joomla is very similar to WordPress
    when it comes to security. They actively respond
    to any security vulnerability and are very quick
    to patch it up. However, maintaining a website
    and installing updates is still up to the user.
  • There are extensions available to backup your
    Joomla site. You can also strengthen your Joomla
    sites security by following the same best
    practices as WordPress.
  • Drupal - Drupal takes a very serious approach
    to security. They publish security
    vulnerabilities on their own site as they are
    discovered and patched. There is a perception
    that Drupal is more secure because you dont hear
    about Drupal sites being hacked as often, but
    that could be cause its not as popular Joomla or

  • Drupal, Joomla and WordPress are all fantastic
    content management systems. Drupal and Joomla
    come with many more built-in features than
    WordPress. However, WordPress beats them with its
    ease of use, huge global community, plugins and
    themes. We feel that most non-developer users
    would find it much easier to build with WordPress
    than Joomla or Drupal.
