Joomla is a CMS or Content Management System. A Content Management System is a platform for building advanced websites consisting of a collection of tools, components, modules, plugins and scripts. Another way to think about CMS is to think of it as a website tool kit. Within it are all the tools needed to publish website content online. A person does not need to know anything about HTML, ASP, PHP or any other web programming language in order to post web content using Joomla. This goes far beyond a simple template driven system, however. Joomla is modular in design, meaning new components and modules can be installed to increase the function and features of your Joomla website. Thanks to the large open source community backing Joomla, there is almost guaranteed to be a component or module out there to meet your every need. Event Calendars, Member Sign Up, E-Newsletters, Document Management and more are available for additional install into a Joomla website.
