For the Technically Curious

Joomla is arguably  the world's most popular full-featured Content Management System (CMS).  This open-source software is aimed at both beginners and advanced users, but is reported to be more complex to use than WordPress. Unlike WordPress, Joomla was designed from the start as a CMS, instead of a blog, with comprehensive CMS functionalities included without requiring basic extensions to gain CMS functionality.  With 2.5 million installations worldwide, Joomla is the second biggest agent in the CMS market,  powering approximately 2.7% of the 1,000,000 largest websites in the world. These websites are in a variety of fields, such as education, arts, media, sports, business, science, technology, health, etc.

Version 3.x delivered, for the first time, what is called fluid or responsive template capability. This type of template provides the ability for browser viewers to dynamically resize their browser page size (within limits). This contrasts significantly to fixed type page templates which cannot be resized at all. Additionally, fluid/responsive pages are more conducive to display on mobile devices vs almost impossible to effectively view fixed page displays.

The template used for our site is a responsive custom design which means it is scalable in browsers and reasonably friendly to cell phone and tablet display. While many templates can be found free of charge, most are a horrid fixed size type that deliver significant waste of user screen real-estate with excessive and useless borders along with typically annoying static background images. Most of the really good templates are not free.
