10 Reasons to Love Joomla 3

Joomla 3 becomes mobile, but there are also other improvements for ordinary users and developers.

Here are 10 reasons that could make Joomla 3 appealing to you.

1) The first major mobile CMS
This is the 3.0 version, which will allow Joomla to keep up with the mobile revolution, which captures the web. According to predictions, next year users will increasingly use a mobile phone instead of a desktop computer to connect to the Internet. So mobile version of the site will soon become more important than the simple version.

Joomla 3 uses new generation framework of Bootstrap so that administrative and public parts are friendly to mobile devices. Joomla will become the first major CMS, which by default will be friendly to mobile devices.

2) 10 second installation
Joomla 3 installation process is now much faster and has a significantly better design. This process now takes just three steps.

3) Improved administrative part
When you go to your new Joomla site, you’ll notice a new dark-blue color scheme. Log in and you will see that the home page of admin panel has been completely redone. The control panel is now entirely composed of modules, so you can adjust it for yourself. Here are six main areas of Joomla 3 admin panel: menu bar, extra links, submenu, modules of admin panel, quick icons, links at the footer.

4) Admin panel that is friendly to mobile devices

Admin part of Joomla 3 is now completely friendly to mobile devices.

5) The altered part of the material
One of the main complaints of Joomla 2.5 is the fact that the space for writing an article is too small. The page contains too many options with a tiny editor window. Whereas in Joomla 3 almost a full width of the page is provided.

The area of the material also allows us to see more improvements in the usability of Joomla 3.

First of all these improvements refer to tabs. In Joomla 2.5 extra options were scattered all over the screen. Now almost all the extra options are grouped into tabs at the top of the field.

The right column has also undergone changes. It is no longer loaded with thousands of options, and only the most important ones were placed on the right column.

6) Drag-and-Drop
Drag-and-drop sorting can be run about anywhere. First, select the sorting Ordering. Then you can use drag-and-drop for all items on the page.

7) Unified configuration
In Joomla 2.5 it was hard to update configuration options of the site. For individual customization you had to visit every part of the site separately. Now in Joomla 3 everything is included into a common configuration area.

8) Faster choice
The work on this improvement is still underway, but the plan is to allow users to search for and select much faster. If you type the name of the menu item, Joomla 3 will automatically show you the corresponding results.

9) Public section template
In Joomla 3 the new template of public section is called Protostar. Its design is fully responsive. Moreover, modules are logically positioned. In Joomla 2.5 names were in one pile and it was very inconvenient to find the desired position. Now you will see the following designations:

Navigation [position-1]
Top center [position-3]
Right [position-7]

10) Your choice of updates
Joomla 3 will be available as an update in a single click from Joomla 2.5, but so far this opportunity will not go by default.
No upgrade for Joomla 3 will be offered until next year, when the stable version of Joomla 3.5 is released. And even then, users will have a choice – to update or not.
