by Aanchal Kaura Magent Developer at Seasia Infotech

The origin of the word “Joomla” comes from the Swahili word “Jumla”, which means “all together” or “as a whole”.

This statement was justified on September, 2017 as 4 Million people had visited

That’s HUGE!

A fully feature-loaded Content Management System (CMS), Joomla is no dance move.

But yes, it is no less!

Joomla and its striking similarity to the word Jhoom makes it a pretty interesting terminology. One of the most loved open-source CMS, Joomla is of course, making a lot of website developers’ dance to its tunes.

Not so bad ah!

But do you know Joomla by heart?

Joomla holds a unique place in open source community, being the only non-corporate backed community driven CMS platform in the world.

Joomla also implements modern programming standards using Object Oriented Program (OOP) and rapping things up with a strong MVC (Model View Controller) design pattern.

There are extensions available to back up Joomla site

 Joomla extensions conversely are clearly separated by function, purpose and scope:

·         Plugins tend to be simple feature additions for Joomla.

·         Modules are used to add bits of content around the main content area.

·   Components are made to extend the core functionally of Joomla, and a component will generally comprise its own set of modules and/or plugins.

Founded on August 17, 2005 by Alex Kempkens, Andrew Eddie and Andy Miller Joomla is used to build, organize, manage and publish content for small businesses, governments, non-profits and large organizations worldwide.
