WordPress vs Joomla vs Drupal

Hey Everyone,

I’m doing some research for a piece of content that will go up on Community.Envato soon doing a Wordpress vs Joomla vs Drupal comparison. I’m wanting to know as a buyer which one is best, and what you guys as experts think of each of them - their strengths, their weaknesses etc. I’m very interested in both the Author and Buyer perspective on this, especially why someone would choose one or the other, with the aim of making this discussion as comprehensive as possible.

Please share your thoughts below.


I worked with WordPress and Joomla. As a web developer, I prefer WordPress to Joomla because it is more flexible and community support is awesome. As a buyer, I prefer WordPress again because it is more user friendly, and if I need an additional feature, I can find a plugin for that easily. Also the WordPress theme archive on the internet is huge and this is a big advantage for me especially if I need to find a niche theme.


of course Wordpress :slightly_smiling:

WordPress is used by millions of people and almost every day new people
are joining the WordPress community by creating their first WordPress
powered websites. The reason why people quickly adapt to WordPress is
because it is fairly easy to use.

Hey guys,

I think this is not a poll… You should share your thoughts :wink:

Drupal is definitely more versatile than any other but Wordpress has the market.

I like drupal :slightly_smiling:

We’ve been using all 3 of these CMSs for the last 8 years.
We started out with Joomla 1.5 and then started to develop Joomla Themes on Themeforest.
It quickly became obvious that Wordpress is the CMS of choice for people starting out with a website and as a web development company selling themes on Themeforest it has to be wordpress as this is where the money is.
Joomla is great for large development projects.
I was never keen on Drupal.

Ohhh, Its years back when i started working with joomla maybe 2007 for one of my clients. It’s was not easy at that time then i have worked with WordPress and found WordPress much easier and more friendly for end users and even for administrators

I had to use Joomla back in a few years at a company i worked at, and as far as i can recall, Joomla was a total nightmare for me…

  • installion and migration is pain in the head, requires a couple of hours to get it work
  • the admin interface is really outdated and lacks any logical menu structure
  • updates are really rare (guessing that’s why it looks and behaves outdated)

I meant no harm for Joomla fans, just shared my personal experience with it.

Sooooo… my vote is obviously WORDPRESS :heart:

Wordpress :smiley: for easy, flexible, library, community, market :smiley:

Definitely we see the winner well before even asking, and that’s Wordpress!

Joomla is a total nightmare in all aspects: starting from development to design and usability

Drupal is very good too, but it’s not Wordpress!

I believe Wordpress makes life easy because it has so many free plugins available and we can adopt it for any purpose. However using plugins can compromise security, therefore, we should only pick plugins from reputable authors.

I have high hopes for G&T :smiley:

Drupal is the second most popular content management system available today. It is a fully open source program, which many people prefer, especially those who are more technically minded.

Technically Advanced
Improved Performance

Joomla is often thought of as the compromise between WordPress and Drupal. It is a powerful content management system, which can run smoothly on most web servers without any problems. It doesn’t require the same level of technical experience to run as Drupal, but it still offers many of the extra features. Like Drupal and WordPress, Joomla does have a lot of plug-ins and themes available to choose from, so you can customize your site to look and function in any way you desire.

Social Networking
Commerce Sites
Not too Technical
