Open Source CMS Comparison: Database Tables (Video)

Written by 

I put this video together to discuss some of the similarities and differences between Joomla, Wordpress, and Drupal.  In particular, I set up some sample content in a "plain vanilla" installation of each platform, and examine the underlying database structure.  Too frequently, I find myself reading peoples' opinions about which of these platforms is better than the other, and I can't help but think to myself, "You're just saying that because you learned (insert platform name here) first." 

If you already have a site built using one of these platforms and want to hire me, I'm happy to play the role of consultant.  If you don't have a site and want to engage me to design & build it, I can do that, too.  (I generally don't find the database structure by itself to be enough of a reason to switch from one platform to the other, but that's also an option if sufficient reasons exist.)  Get in touch today!

Disclaimer:  As usual, my videos are unrehearsed, unscripted, and unedited.  I know that I already messed up once in terms of word choice.  If you spot and point it out in the comments, you could win a prize!

    I hadn't caught that one! The mistake I have in mind is where I say Wordpress instead of Drupal, or something along those lines. Thanks, now I have two mistakes on my conscience :-)
