Goldilocks had to taste all 3 to determine which was just right. As you evolve and mature as a web developer, is it possible that your taste might also change? In this blog we ask you to join us as we revisit this age-old comparison between these 3 CMS's with a few new perspectives. We hope will help you decide if you are drinking from the right soup bowl - - maybe you are ready to drink from two bowls?

The common denominator

With the rise of PHP to the top of the language heap in terms of developer adoption and web usage at-large, it's no surprise that the top three open-source web content management systems in use today are written in PHP, namely-- Joomla, Drupal, and WordPress. While features and functionality are comparable amongst the three, deciding which system to implement can ultimately hinge on several factors that vary across organizations and roles.

Whether you're exploring the whole RGB spectrum or bringing something fresh to black and white, color is one of the most important parts of website design. It's one of the first things users notice when they open up a site, and it instantly says a lot about the client and service or product they offer. Both color extremes are buzzing trends right now, so it's a great time to go ahead and experiment with using bold choices to add drama to your client's site. Here are some tips on when to go with monochrome and when to let your colorful fantasies play out.

There are many things for web industries to look forward to in the spring. Some of the more popular web design trends include mobile first design, deeply focused landing pages, and putting a face with freelance web development. People are building better sites and writing better blogs, and these trends are at the heart of it all.

Mobile First Design

Yeah, yeah, seems like we've been talking about this ad nauseam, but I recommend that you look at some real stats for a change. Have a look at your analytics to see just how many mobile browsers visit your site these days. This trend has been going on for a few years now, but it's only now getting to the point of overtaking desktop clients - - at least for some sites. This makes responsive design increasingly more important. Please share with us what you find.

The current web design trends take a turn to minimalism, with flat design coming out in the lead. When you strip away many visual elements that create a visual impact, you rely heavily on typography to make your design beautiful. 2014 is shaping up to be an exciting year for typography trends, particularly if you are working with responsive or flat designs for Joomla. Keep an eye out for these popular trends, and consider incorporating them into your own designs if they need a typography face lift.

Joomla's basic feature set is powerful, especially with Bootstrap being included in Java's core coding. Bootstrap is a collection of javascript and CSS snippets that are easily added to your website, the template, or modules. It provides a great deal of flexibility to an already great content management system, but sometimes you need features that Joomla and Bootstrap can't cover. The open source nature of this script provides fertile ground for an endless amount of extensions. When you're ready to go beyond Joomla's basic functions, a quick jaunt into the available extensions reveals a way to take your website to the next level.
