Joomla 2.5 - The Best CMS is Back and Better

Joomla 2.5 - The Best CMS is Back and Better

While Joomla has come a long way since its inception, Wordpress and Magento platforms seem to have found their way ahead of the long-standing CMS platform. With updates that seem to be ahead of Joomla, it’s been tough for one of the first CMS platforms to keep up with its two main competitors. However, the recent release of Joomla 2.5 has shown that this platform isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, and with these latest updates, users both new and old will find that it features are competitive with that of both Wordpress and Magento.

Easier Updating

Updating of both the Joomla core as well as its extensions is easier than it has been in a long time. Before the latest release of Joomla 2.5, users had to often update extensions with several clicks to get updates fully integrated, which is a method similar to that of Wordpress. Now, Joomla has two quick buttons that allow you to update the core and your installed extensions without having to go into different portions of the CMS interface. There’s also no longer the need to manually replace any files on your server, which was often the most time-consuming part of updating.

Enhanced Site Search

The former search engine that was used by the Joomla platform to allow users to search your site was the slowest feature of the platform. Additionally, search suggest was all but useless because of the laggy times that were often associated with it. Now, users can search your site faster than ever with a fully working auto-completing search. With the addition of a few components on top of your new installation of Joomla 2.5, users are now greeted by an automated indexing of every page on your site, a feature which trumps that of the latest release in Wordpress.

Multiple Databases

Joomla 2.5’s biggest update is that of the ability to support multiple databases and not just MySQL. Additionally, the add-on of multiple drivers expands the web designers choices of building databases within PostgreSQL, Oracle, SQLite, and PDO. This allows you to pull from multiple sources without having to convert information from one database into another, which could save you countless man hours upon installing this latest release of Joomla.

Joomla, like Magento and Wordpress, is supported by the community, with several features developed within the open-source code. Giving Joomla 2.5 a chance for your website could prove beneficial if you’ve been looking for any of these features.
