It can be a difficult task if you don’t have the correct tool in place for building a website. People using static web pages will encounter quite a bit of problems when the content increases as it is not so easy to update nor are there any search functionalities in place. Maneuvering around static websites is cumbersome and often the user has to manually create buttons for this purpose. This is why Joomla’s Content Management System (CMS) has become quite popular as it eliminates these problems.
There are other CMS systems available like Drupal and WordPress however Joomla outranks them in that is fully functional for end users, designers and developers. It is certainly is a powerful system that works and what makes it really nice is that it is freely available to the public. All software systems are never perfect and Joomla fully acknowledges its systems downfalls. However they are constantly improving themselves with new updates that keeping getting better. They have a huge community of users and a support system that helps one overcome many hurdles.
Users within the Joomla world are always on the lookout for a community builder extension that will make their working environment more efficient. There are many community builder plugins that are available from the Community Builder teams or third party companies that makes this possible. For instance the Community Builder (CB) suite has added a host of features that include more fields, improved workflows and image uploads, profiled galleries, blogs, guestbooks and walls to name but a few. For a more comprehensive list you can always visit Joomla’s website.
Sadly if one reads through forums they will find many Joomla users are struggling to get the extensions to work and a lot of amendments need to be carried out. In some cases it all extension amendments make no difference and it still fails. Frustration comes in many forms which include: one getting kicked out from editing mode, titles not changing in fields, hidden characters and problems reworking code are just some of the many.
Joomla supporters will be pleased to hear about the Community Builder Advanced Search that extends the CMS system by enhancing it with a much needed function. Community builder search allows a user to do a front end control search within the Joomla component and gives and offers the flexibility to create automatic search parameters.
