New era of Content Management Systems with Joomla! 3.0

Pin It

A new version of the famous Content Management System has been released earlier this year. Don't worry if you are still using Joomla! 2.5 as Joomla! 3.0 is currently only recommended for developers and early adopters. The current version 2.5 will be supported at least until 2014. So why is the new version such a major step?

 

CMS with mobile compatibility


Trends show that in the near future more mobile devices than desktop computers will access websites. This means when using a Content Management System for your website you should keep up to date. Joomla 3.0 is one step ahead. It is the first big "Mobile-CMS".

Faster installation

Joomla! 3.0 provides a much faster installation process. The installation is now split into 3 major steps so that it is possible to install the basic CMS in no more than 10 seconds.

Improved administration area


Simple, simpler, Joomla! 3.0. The administration area is built in a much easier module system which allows easier customisation and a more flexible approach. Furthermore the mobile-ready platform allows administrators a new way to access and manage their Content Managemen System.

Improved article administration


One of the major problems in older versions of Joomla! was the administration of basic articles. Users were unhappy with the layout especially with the editor's size. It was hardly possible to edit articles and view them the way they would be displayed in the front-end unless you would use a browser that allows resizing textareas such as Firefox. With Joomla! 3.0 users will experience a more accessible article editor. The area has been cleaned and unnecessary objects were removed. Moreover articles can now be ordered via "Drag & Drop". This function replaces the more difficult arrow navigation which took much longer.



Faster configuration


New techniques in Joomla 3.0! allow easier access to the complex configuration area. Users can now access all main configuration settings in one screen. This makes it much easier and faster for administrators to change website settings. In addition to this Joomla! 3.0 also introduces faster access objects to improve the user experience and make working with the Content Management System much easier.

To sum up Joomla! 3.0 is a major step towards mobile compatible Content Management Systems. Mobile-friendly websites become more important and so it is necessary that you as a company offer your users simple access to your website. Make sure you're up to date. Joomla! 3.5, the next major version of the new Content Management System will be released soon.
