What does Joomla do well?
Joomla saves content quickly and doesn't seem to have any glitches on loosing information. The blog articles I write can be quickly submitted for approval and then they go live very fast. I suppose most other software I have used has this same feature but I am surprised Joomla is so fast. I say that because everything else about the program I despise.
What does Joomla not do well?
Joomla does not have very many options when trying to build a blog. The font choices are very minimal and are not easy to change. The structure is horrible and not at all user friendly.
What do you wish you had known about Joomla before using?
I wish I had known that it doesn't offer very many blog features before agreeing to use it. I feel like my hands are tied behind my back every time I try to use it.
Have you used a competitor to Joomla? If so, how does it compare?
Yes, I have used Wix and Wordpress. Wix is really user friendly but limited on professionalism. Wordpress takes some getting used to but once you understand it, then it is far superior than Joomla.
