How I moved from Joomla to Drupal 6.

Thoughts on whether worth the move from Joomla to Drupal.

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

Notes from my early experiences in using Drupal.

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
