DocMartin Joomla info

As the title of this article indicates, I have similar reservations about claims on joomla.org frontpage, to effect that "Joomla is easy to install, simple to manage".

Here's info on Joomla to 1.0.13 and SEF URLs:

I began using Gallery 1.5 with Mambo; since moved two sites to Joomla!, and installed Gallery 2 together with the Gallery 2 bridge component. Unknown Object

Also since migrated sites to Drupal, which doesn't work with Gallery just now, though still have separate installs of Gallery (versions 2 and 3), on three sites. Info here is from days when I used Joomla w Gallery.

When it comes to making sites search engine friendly - ie Search Engine Optimization (SEO), so they are readily navigated and index by search engine spiders, and pages rank well in, say, Google, Yahoo and MSN Search, Joomla! has a few quirks that are maybe worth a little explanation: to me, rather suggest some of key folks behind Joomla are not really interested in creating websites.Unknown Object
