Both WordPress and Joomla are what is known as CMS’s. Joomla started out in 2005 meant to serve portal-like websites, whilst WordPress launched 2 years prior in 2003 and was originally a blog-focused platform. Presently, both WordPress and Joomla have evolved into systems that are fully capable to run any type of website.
We are (truly) sorry to hear if this has happened to you. It’s greatly concerning to us how often this happens. We know, because half of our recent projects were clients who came referred to us due to websites left unfinished by rogue freelancers or bad agencies.
If you’ve ever been out house hunting, you would understand the appeal of a well-maintained front view: it immediately invites you to want to see beyond the front door. Similarly, you’d probably drive straight past a property that looked unkempt and run-down.
Did you know: If your website’s homepage falls within the latter category, people will abandon it in less than 3 seconds?
So, if your goal is to wow people with your website, you’d do good to plot out a proper map for the journey because it doesn’t happen without some sweat, gritting of teeth and tears. We should know – we build a lot of wow websites, and we’ve also seen many of the woeful kind.
The debate concerning which browser is superior seems endless, and subjective at best. For die-hard Internet Explorer (yes, IE still exists) and Firefox users, Google Chrome may seem challenging to navigate AT FIRST, but once you convert to the Chrome side, we can almost guarantee that there will be no turning back.
It’s probably not hard to guess that we prefer Google Chrome. Reasons include fast performance, infinite expandability, stability, and responsiveness, to name but a few. The feature that we, however, cannot (okay, do not want to) live without is undoubtedly Chrome Extensions (small software programs that customise your web browsing experience to your individual preferences and requirements).
