Pros

Easy to install, the WYSIWYG editor is good for starters and professionals. Joomla is open Source, popular and supported.

Siraj W.

The ease of deployment is one of the best benefits. You can even auto-install it in most servers.

Yaco L.

Joomla is a stable solution that has been around for many years and continues to get better and developed by the strong Joomla community.

Pros

I love how Weebly can so easily help you create a beautiful website that looks both professional and polished. It's relatively easy to use and pretty customizable.

CL

Cory L.

Ease of use is the most important quality for me. But not only is it easy to use, it’s easy to get good quality results without a lot of know how.

TD

Tim D.

Very Good; to be honest it has everything to do with the loading time that I can't say Excellent.

Cons

This tool was a threat to our profits because of those technical variants. There are so many conflicting help files and out of date tutorials, the tool has become a victim of it's own complexity.

JL

James L.

I dislike that the PayPal plugin for it fails too frequently. I dislike that there's a color change line in the body of the web page for no good reason (light blue to a slightly darker blue).

GT

Gail T.

Compatibility with certain software packages and hardware due to highly possible dishonest and cowardly development protocols from OTHER COMPANIES.

Chad E.

Cons

I found it hard to go deeper when I was trying to optimise Weebly sites for SEO as you can't access some parts easily. Also, I struggled with the drag and drop, and undoing accidental movements.

RC

Ruth C.

Recent big frustration as we were considering upgrading and before anyone responded to our support inquiry, we were auto charged (ahead of the renewal date) for the existing plan.

BS

Barb S.

Sometimes when I drag and drop a widget, it ends up halfway down the page in the wrong position, like the mouse is not calibrated or something, and this can only be fixed by doing a hard refresh.

Not appealing

Reviewed 2 years ago

I'm rating Joomla just as a website builder.

Pros

Very old structure and site features. very limited options to design your website. People interested in whatever niche wants to see a well-designed and attractive site like strikingly or Weebly

Cons

Easy to use. Easy to build your own site with actually no time

Joomla

CMS that is fully customizable

Reviewed 3 years ago

Joomla! CMS is one of the first out there, and it keeps improving. Support is easy to find via their active Open source community. The setup requires a little reading up, but once you get past this initial hurdle, everything else is easy to use, intuitive, and super flexible to suit everyone's need. Joomla! is also a good choice in teaching young IT and Web enthusiasts since it is open source and fully extensible and customizable. It will run on older hardware, and minimum requirement will not be a problem.

Pros

Joomla! has been around for decades, and the reason for such popularity and continued use is that it is easy-to-use and manage, it is open source and has a huge and active community that maintains it. The community provides extensive documentation, FAQs, and support for almost any question or issue you may encounter. Joomla! can be set up locally and easy to deploy to the Internet publicly. The security features have significantly improved through the years. This CMS comes with an intuitive dashboard. And there are many third-party integrations available for setup. Since this is open source, the elements are customizable to suit your needs.

Cons

Setting up may require an initial (steep) learning curve. May be not as easy to set up as Wix or Weebly. Hence may require the admin to be more-or-less tech savvy (and not just a beginner).

Joomla

A Content Management System for building websites

Reviewed 2 years ago

I used Joomla to build my website. It was relatively easy to get started with. Joomla works with extensions and templates which allows them to be easily customisable. Joomla saved me the cost of having to outsource my website design to a website developer.

Pros

Joomla is a Content Management System (CMS) that can be used to build websites. The things I like about Joomla are: 1. Ability to build a website with no technical knowledge required: The first time I worked on Joomla, I didn't know how to write the programming languages on which Joomla was built, but I was still able to build a website with it using available Joomla templates and extensions. 2....

Cons

Joomla is an awesome CMS, but that is not without its cons. The cons of Joomla are: 1. Despite the fact that Joomla is easy to learn, it's learning curve is more complex than that of other CMSs like WordPress, Wix, and Weebly. 2. Poor layout: For me, the outlook of a website designed with Joomla seems to be less elegant than that designed with other CMSs like WordPress and Wix. These are the two cons I can point out with Joomla.

Weebly

Best solution for a DIY website

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

Ease of use: This definitely has to be the easiest website builder platform online. Drag and drop functionality without any need for technical or programming experience. Price Plans: I like that their plans incorporate an all-inclusive package where you can have your hosting, template, support, all covered under one of the premium options (which is very affordable considering the alternatives).

Cons

Flexibility: As a developer, there are aspects of the website that you'd like to tweak and modify. While Weebly allows for some basic modifications to be made, it is very restrictive as compared to a CMS like WordPress or Joomla. In this aspect, I would opt for WordPress simply because it allows me more freedom to modify website themes and plugins.
