Hi Randy,Mambo/Joomla has the same convoluted cbasodee and outdated architecture. In fairness, I should say Mambo was a great pioneer in Open Source CMS, hitting the market in under the GPL in 2002 with a relatively mature code base. WordPress 1.5 didn’t arrive until February 2005. Prior versions were not suitable for use as a CMS.Curiously Drupal’s open source CMS history dates back to 2001. Not quite sure why Drupal had such difficulty achieving penetration early on. Probably as you needed to be a programmer to set it up properly. Mambo early on had a very good auto install.But all that’s history now. Mambo/Joomla spent more energy fighting one another in the crucial 2005 to 2007 years than improving the tired architecture. Alas, Randy the code and architecture are outdated and hard to work with.I don’t know who won the Mambo/Joomla civil war in the end. From the outside, it looks like Joomla. Who lost? The users and the platform. History is a relentless mistress.Thanks for stopping by.
