Since we’re going through CMS selection vendor demo RFP scoring hell at work, I thought I’d finally install a CMS. After a little research, Joomla looked like the best choice based on the admin functionality, ease of use and support community.
My first test was to see if I could easily change the banner image. I tried to do this with the WordPress template and I only got halfway there. With Joomla, it was just replacing an image.
I was easily able to add a user and set permissions. He got an e-mail notification on cue. So far it looks pretty good, although I’m noticing that when I login as an admin, I don’t necessarily get the Administrator menu in the left nav.
