What is Joomla!?

Joomla! is a popular content management system (CMS) that allows you to easily create great-looking websites and online applications. Like many open-source applications, Joomla! is completely free to use.

The core platform offers a host of fabulous publishing features and is fully extensible, meaning that third-party developers can create plugins (or extensions, as they’re known in the Joomla! world) that equip the software with new functionality.
