I opened up Joomla the other free open source web maker that comes highly rated, and have been looking at the EXTREMELY well written directions! Thus far, it seems light years ahead of Drupal in the way that it is explained and the way that it operates. Everything is so logical and so incredibly well presented. I haven’t finished going through the directions yet and have yet to make my trial web site, but I’m already many days ahead of my pace studying Drupal.
Drupal is “said” to be the most powerful and the most flexible, and where I am at right now I certainly can NOT see this. Joomla’s user manual is so well organized and so clear in its presentation, that it seems to be inspired. The Drupal instructions seem to be so diffuse and disorganized that it makes the entire learning process a slow and laborous process–more than the content warrants.
So, I am sure that I shall be commenting further on the two programs in the future.
The weather here has been sunshine interspersed with rain–mostly rain all day today in fact. The wind is blowing the little paper-like cups that cover the growing tips of the Douglas Fir all over the place. As the twig tips grow, the little brown cups fall off. Many flowers, too numerous to mention now, but soon I would like to post some photos.
