As a person that is not incredibly tech savvy, this platform makes it easy to implement quick changes to our website content. The integration with other systems we use is seamless. I would like the ability to at least see the back end code so when bugs occur we can identify the problem without hiring outside IT.
Joomla is a very flexible tool for not technical users and experts web designers. Once you get the hang of how the different features, modules, components, plugins, and content are structured, it becomes very easy to maintain an active website with lots of updates. Also it is possible to find a lot of components, and modules for free, you can integrate another applications, create your own code, it is easy to setup, and very fast to generate a change in a website, just in seconds, but the best is that is free.
Excellent CMS application that is easy to use and easy to manage. Great investment that has saved me a ton of hours and expenses.
