Editors' Review

+

With the open-source Joomla for Mac you can create and update a website, blog, store, or portfolio, using MySQL and PHP to run your website. Much like modern Web browsers, the software supports extensions that add new capabilities and enhance existing ones. On the downside, additional software is needed to actually install this application, and the learning curve for using these tools is steep.

Pros

Thousands of extensions: You can enhance your work with more than 9,300 add-ons that can do virtually everything, from adding forum modules to integrating image galleries to providing you with powerful text editors and media managers. There are even extensions that allow direct manipulation of website content in a what-you-see-is-what-you-get manner.

Full control: Once you get Joomla up and running, you will be able to log in to the back-end, where you will have full control over your website: You can choose a site template, publish articles, create new administrative accounts, and much more.

Cons

Complicated installation: Once you download Joomla for Mac, you will notice that there isn't a straightforward installation method; you need to use third-party software to get the product running, which can significantly slow down the setup process.

Bottom Line

If you want to build a new website, Joomla for Mac proves to be a powerful and reliable content management system. Despite the messy setup and somewhat steep learning curve, the sheer amount of extensions available for this platform makes it a viable option, especially if you want to build a large website for a company or organization.

"Great tool for developers!"

January 31, 2010  |  By carbine68

 |  Version: Joomla 1.5.15

Pros

Unreal, I can build a full featured website in a day now compared to weeks. Plus its the coding is simple and well organized and I can find any body with coding experience to create components for my clients.

Cons

Deployments is time consuming when going from local to host server.

Summary

Simple tool to use, development is a breeze and its super simple to create templates. PSD to Joomla templates is really easy and you can create amazing websites for free except for the price of hosting and domain name.

""Don't even Bother""

July 17, 2009  |  By BruceNZ

 |  Version: Joomla 1.5.12

Pros

It's free but thats about it....oh hang on support is free too but you need hours and hours as there is millions of pages to read for a simple answer that won't work,

Cons

It's free....and very very hard to use.
Takes hours to setup correctly and sucks up data...and then takes days to learn how to use it...weeks if you install a "add on" or "plug in".

Summary

Don't even Bother trying to install this unless you are a website wiz and have a webhost that will let you install it.
You would have a better chance of finding family history on 5 generations of cousins cousins cousins then you will of getting this thing to work correctly.

Not sure what the developers had in mind but it was not to make it user friendly at all.....come on up to 5 levels of changes to get a banner advert to work...or over 4 levels of movement to edit the frontpage!

SOMEBODDY NEEDS TO INVEST $$$ INTO THIS to bring it up to 2009 standards...

"A great CMS"

January 29, 2008  |  By altoidboy

 |  Version: Joomla 1.5

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
joomla is a great cms (content management system). i used it to build a couple of web sites that i needed to be updateable by non-web-savvy people, and it's great. there are a boatload of extensions for it that can make it do all kinds of things, from e-commerce to user management to group management to file hosting and so on. highly recommended!! (not sure why it's listed in versiontracker, as it's just php and web-based so you access it through any browser)
