What is Joomla?

Joomla is an award-winning content management system (CMS), which enables you to build Websites and powerful online applications.
Many aspects, including its ease-of-use and extensibility, have made Joomla the most popular Website software available. Best of all, Joomla is an open source solution that is freely available to everyone.

What's a content management system (CMS)?

A content management system is software that keeps track of every piece of content on your Web site, much like your local public library keeps track of books and stores them. Content can be simple text, photos, music, video, documents, or just about anything you can think of. A major advantage of using a CMS is that it requires almost no technical skill or knowledge to manage. Since the CMS manages all your content, you don't have to.
