Member Association Web Sites – WordPress or Joomla? That is The Question

Wordpress is a good platform, especially for blogging. And because it is so ubiquitous, members of associations may find it easier to add content if they are familiar with it already. However, the Joomla platform is better for member associations. There are plugins available for Joomla making it a good blogging tool as well. The advantage of Joomla is it allows each member to have an individual profile and gives them the ability to edit it, but restricts their access to other area of the site. The member profile structure in Joomla creates searchable directories allowing filtering and sorting like any good database system. Worpdress can add filtering and categories for blog posts, but restricting member access is not its strong point. That in a nutshell is the difference.
