    I have used Drupal in the past, but much prefer Wordpress. It is a bit of learnin curve to move from one to the other, but has certainly been worth it to me. Wordpress is the way to go

    Wordpress' primary function is to assemble content into a blog structure. There are plugins that do other things, but most of them support that blog structure. Joomla, on the other hand, is primarily a framework for managing content articles AND plugging in components that do a lot of different functions ie: directories, forums, support center etc. while using the Joomla framework for permissions, authors, users, etc. Does more and is more complicated

    I'd choose Joomla any day. It's simply the best. So many modifications available.

    They are both open source CMS systems and are very useful to use on your dedicated server or web hosting provider of choice

    tried both. they are really mature stable apps, and are great. but to quickly put out a blog with many plugins and quick to seo, I vote for wordpress.

    I would not compare WordPress to Joomla. Joomla is much more development friendly CMS and could be used for much more complex project. I like WordPress a lot, but it is a blogging CMS.

    I personally like wordpress out of the 2 as i think Joomla is easier to hack but i stand to be corrected on this one,i had a Joomla site a few years back and that was taken out as luck would have it i did have a backup but i sold it straight away.

    Wordpress - secure, lightweight, tons of plugins, easy to use

    joomla - not very secure, bloated, tons of insecure plugins, difficult to use.

    The joomla community puts security on the back burner, in the back seat, second place,,,, to how many modifications/plug ins they can offer. Its one of the classic quantity over quality examples.
