Lost in Joomla? A short guide to editing content like a pro

This is a question that sometimes surfaces on social networks. Users who are not familiar with Joomla may have trouble figuring out how to change certain information when there are a lot of pages.

Update your Joomla and Wordpress CMS without stress

An indisputable strong point of Joomla and Wordpress CMS (Content Management System) is the ability to easily update their source code and that of their extensions by simply clicking a button in the backend.

Create your site with Wordpress and a Gantry 5 theme

The following examples will help you design a thoughtful project and present it in a professional manner. It's up to you to use a vector drawing software or simply a sheet of paper at first in order not to restrict your creativity.

Is your Joomla or Wordpress CMS correctly installed and optimized ?

Creating a website with an open source CMS (Content Management System) like Wordpress or Joomla allows you to avoid being trapped in a subscription-based web service, which represents the lowest common denominator of all users needs without the possibility of evolution.

It is also an opportunity to be able to optimize the design, security and performances of his site, which is an advantage in a competitive market where small details can make a difference. Here are some basic rules to get started.
