Why I ditched Joomla!

Joomla! LogoYes, Joomla! remains in the header.


Because I have over 3,200 posts in the Joomla! Forum and I still help out from time to time.

Do I still use it?

Not any longer.


Because I can’t figure out where they are going with it.

Ever since Joomla! split into the two paths back in 2010  sometime is when I got totally confused. Which one should I work with – the 2 point whatever versions or the 3 point whatever version?

Then along came WordPress 3.0.

What a relief.

There was no going back from that point.

One single path.

With the subsequent iterations of WordPress and the various plugins, themes and frameworks (notably Genesis + Dynamik Website Builder), there will have to be a very compelling reason to get me to do another site in Joomla!


I will still attempt to help out those who are still bound to Joomla!, but at the same time, I will also attempt to proselytize them to WordPress 🙂
