I tried Joomla for a magazine layout sometime back. It is so hard when compared to WordPress, but we can do a lot more than in WordPress. I am confused now. Some WordPress magazine themes have widgets for popular, latest, trending etc. This is almost in-built in Joomla. 😕
Forget Joomla or spend 6 months to learn. That is the best advice I can give.
Joomla 4.0 beta is now available.
I want to try it when it becomes stable. I don't whether they will make things a lot easier than how it is now. If they could cut the learning curve, I am sure there will be a huge no. of people who would like to switch.
