While still in its first release, it is supported by an active and well organized open source development team and community. Joomla! is both easy to use at the entry level for creating basic websites, whilst having the power and flexibility to support complex web applications.
Joomla! implements the core requirements of a full-featured CMS.;It has a powerful and extensible templating system with the ability to upload and manage many different data types. User access control, content approval, rich administrative control, and content display scheduling are all built-in.
New features and extensions are constantly added to the core system, with many more being available and supported by the community.
