When we started to design the ReachHispanic website in 2009, we did a search to find the best OpenSource option to use for the project. The best one we evaluated was WordPress and for that reason we started to look even deeper at its features and options for short, medium and long term use. Since then, Joomla! (which evolved from Mambo) and Drupal appeared with great recommendations and a wide audience that gave its preference options.
Four years later, is still seems that WordPress is mostly used for publishing and news sites while Joomla! and Drupal are best for multi-purpose sites. However, the debates continue, with the development of new technology, applications, mobile devices, new versions of web languages (HTML5, CSS3, jQuery, jQuery Mobile, etc), so it is fitting to ask if these aforementioned CMS’s are still relevant for the implementation at the beginning or migration stage of a web site.
