What we settled to work with…

We still did research on the advantages and disadvantages of using either Drupal or Joomla!. Below are my findings:

Drupal pros: architecture, user management, content management, flexibility and power, development-oriented

Drupal cons: templates, high-learning curve

Joomla! pros: templates, easy to learn, design-oriented (at the least), better backend admin

Joomla! cons: user management, content management, standards compliance.

Disclaimer: The comparison above is the author’s understanding of  the individual site’s evaluation of the two CMS. Drupal and Joomla! are continually evolving CMS and the mentioned advantages and disadvantages may eventually be improved.

At first I’m much inclined to use Joomla! while Ed prefers Drupal. After so much debate (um, was there any?) with Ed as to what CMS to use, we eventually settled with Drupal (Perhaps what made switch to Drupal was Sir Edge’s statement that we are going to instruct the users about using the site. Joomla!, as mentioned, has complex content management.)

Now I’m going to learn Drupal from scratch (as I focused more on Joomla!)…
