Both Wordpress and Joomla! are highly-regarded and each have there unique advantages when you compare them. To answer your questions: in the software architecture between Joomla! and Wordpress Joomla is OOP (object-oriented) and MVC (an object-oriented design pattern). Wordpress is written in Procedural code. Procedural programming specifies the steps ...

I think to truly answer this question, you need to be extensively familiar with both WP and Joomla!. I'm Joomla! heavy and have only used WP a few times, so my answer may not be as full as you might hope. WP is first and foremost, a blogging platform. It's set up for feeds of data. You have to go out of your way to move past the feed default to get a ...

Switching on the template preview mode might help so you can at least see the module positions. This will help you figure where to go (i.e. which module in module manager) to edit particular text. You can enable template preview mode by appending /index.php?tp=1 to your domain name. Joomla 1.5 is quite old now. In newer versions of Joomla (especially the ...

As you are talking about architecture, it does matter when you are building a portal or a complex website i.e. lots of inter-connected entities. Joomla source code is object oriented. Joomla code is very well divided i.e. applications, plugins, components. Most of the design patterns are followed in Joomla, e.g. Factory, Decorator, Dependency Injection, ...

The short answer is "Yes", mostly because technically you can build systems for all of your tasks on top of Joomla. The better question though is should you build these things on Joomla. And my answer to that is "probably not". One of the biggest benefits to working with Joomla (at least in my experience) is the plethora of existing components that you can ...

Unfortunately there is nothing like this for Joomla 4 yet. With all the amount of work that's gone into it, there's not a major amount of documentation yet. You can however use some other resources to help: Potential backward compatibility issues in Joomla 4 Pull Requests for Joomla 4 Joomla 4 Docs That said, as far as I'm aware, I don't believe there are ...

It's not clear to me what you mean by user. Also you do not specify which version or 3rd party extensions you use. The following is true for Joomla 2 and 3: A user registered to your friends website does not have a specific folder for each user. The Mediamanager let every user, including your friend, with access to it see just everything what everybody else ...

Joomla can do all those things, but because it appears to be highly specialized, you will almost certainly have to do some custom coding. There are hundreds of extensions that could do part of what you're doing, so it become a case of determining which Extension comes closest, and what custom code you'd have to add. We use jQuery to create customized UI's ...
