About Joomla

Editor’s note: this article was written when GarfNet first changed from a hand-written HTML site to a CMS driven one. Sadly, Joomla failed us in many ways, not least the fact we went through several soul-destroying upgrades that took longer to sort out than if I had coded the site by hand. Today we use WordPress instead.

Joomla, is an open source Content Management System (CMS). It is actually wonderful piece of server-side software. The people behind it have developed it with a particular passion & flair. Joomla is fast, stable, easy to use, pretty, highly customisable with minimal technical knowledge and it’s scaleable. It runs best on a LAMPP server. There are many add-ons and plugins for it and it has a very active development and support community.
