Hello guys,

If your site is purely e-commerce then I'd use a platform aimed at just selling online. Check out Prestashop or Magento for starters. IMO using a CMS is less effective than a dedicated e-comm setup.

Hi . I used both of them , and I like WordPress much then Joomla , because it's easy and user friendly , so if you need simple website I think WordPress is good choice .

My preferred choice between these two will always be Wordpress because its very user friendly . So if you are looking to build a simple website i would strongly recommend Wordpress for you.

Definitely Wordpress. The installation process is easier than Joomla. It takes only 5 minutes to upload and install WordPress.

As for templates, WordPress has the largest themes available online. There's a theme for almost anything someone can imagine.

And WordPress is more like an app where joomla is a CMS.

Of course, Wordpress. It has more templates to offer and bigger in size. Moreover, it takes little time to install as well.

If you want an eCommerce Website, the best is OpenCart. Very easy to install, very easy to use.

If your site is e-commerce then you can use Virtumart for your Joomla based website and Woocommerce for your WP based site. I highly recommend Wordpress, easier to use and so many more options. One negative point, be careful with hackers installing malware on your website
There are some resources helping you have a right choice when choosing your needed CMS.See the comparison chart of WordPress, Joomla and Drupal on
http://www.threehosts.com/ratings/wordpress-vs-joomla-vs-drupal.html.There is also a useful article at
