Hi guys,

I'm a newbie and most of my friend would recommend wordpress but I don't know where to start since there is weebly and joomla.

I need your perspective guys.

Thanks

    Wordpress is the famous one and it is very much user friendly. Also they have a huge database for plugins.

    Hi,
    I started with Weebly and later on moved to Wordpress,
    I recommend that you go with Wordpress it just more options,
    much more themes!! and lots of plugins that can benefits your sites,
    Once you learn how to install it and use it it's more easy to use different
    Themes and plugins for different site niches and categories,

    Hope this helps,
    Avi

    Hi,

    It entirely depends on your needs and on which one you feel the most comfortable with. I know I don't like WordPress at all and won't waste a minute with it, others think just the opposite... I guess if you want to make up your mind, you need to give them all a try.
    Also, I don't know Weebly but don't listen to people telling you WordPress is better than the other CMS because it has more plug-ins and templates... That's just not true, have a look at Joomla's extensions directory and you'll see they both offer a lot of stuff : http://extensions.joomla.org/

    Seb.

    Useless question. Unless everybody knows exactly WHAT KIND of website you are planning... all the advice replies (except Seb) are complete crap.

    Being ready starts with knowing what question to ask...

    Until the OP returns and gives a detailed explanation of what he needs - all the nonsense advice will be deleted. You were warned...

      Hi Istvan,

      I disagree with you, I don't think that a newbie must decide right now
      exactly WHAT KIND of website he is planning! maybe he didn't decide yet!
      and he wants just to practice in bulding sites, why should he waste his time in weebly just to find out that for instance he can't build a classified ads site or A job listing site. So why not advice him to start
      with the most options platform he can get ,everyone with his own opinions.

      Regards,
      Avi

      This ^^


      But if you want opinions then I'll chuck in my preference. I tested Joomla, Drupal, WordPress pretty extensively before deciding on one. Actually I wasted 6 months learning Joomla and Drupal and then tried WordPress and was blown away by the amount of users and good free code.

      Therein lies the problem, Sure Joomla/Drupal/Weebly (I haven't touched Weebs) might be good platforms but I know they only have around half a million users each whereas WordPress has 6+ million.

      This means, stronger developers, better plugins, better shopping carts, better membership sites, better social platforms, better everything....

      Choice is logical.

    Wordpress works really well for me. You can do a lot of things and integrate stuff into it. You can actually setup a webpage in less than an hour with it. Considering you know how to though. But the good news is that its got tutorials so I guess you could start from there.

    After spending significant time with both - Wordpress wins for me. The whole system seems a lot more logical to work with in general.

    When we use it for blogging I will go for WordPress but if we talk about internet marketing, e-commerce I will go for Joomla because it is proven to easy generate money.
