    Have two projects needing immediate work. Skills required are the ability to integrate any design with Joomla as a CMS. Must be highly proficient with CSS, JS, PHP as well as the ability to create production graphics. Must also be able to integrate YooTools.

    The ability to make a Joomla site look exactly like the PSD is an absolute must. This is not modifying of a Joomla template but rather taking a custom layout design and functionality requirements and integrating that with Joomla's CMS functionality.

    Have work needing to be done right now and more work in perpetuity.

    IM me for immediate responses.

    I could dig a hole next to a toilet, shit in the hole, then cover it up with dirt. But why would I do that when I can take a comfortable shit on the toilet?

    Anyone can slew garbage together, create something, and make it work. It doesn't mean it's the best alternative.

    Being a developer that has worked on both Joomla (And Mambo) and Drupal CMS, I can tell you these:

    1. Documentation for Drupal is far better than Joomla
    2. Drupal supports cross-categorization, Joomla does not (Joomla only supports categories up to two levels deep. lol)
    3. Drupal supports internationalization or multilingual sites, Joomla does not.
    4. Joomla does not support multiple sites utilizing the same system. You need multiple implementations of Joomla for multiple sites, whereas you only need one instance of Drupal to function across an array of sites.
    5. Joomla's code isn't standards compliant.
    6. Drupal is faster and performs better. Generally because of well written code and database normalization.
    7. Joomla's a pain in the ass to configure.
    8. Drupal has an overall better framework and their API is much easier and more powerful.
    9. Joomla is horribly optimized for search engines. Joomla's SEO out of the box is lol. If you're looking to largely optimize your site around SEO you're not even looking in the right direction.
    10. Drupal is highly more customizable. You can hook directly into ANY part of the system. Where as Joomla system is static and cannot change through the users needs. You can plug modules and plug-ins into it though. :hsugh:
    11. You have to pay for Joomla modules. :hsugh:

    Ultimately, Drupal has a much, much more functional and powerful back-end.

    Minus a few minute features here and there, I'd say the only thing Joomla has on Drupal is that it's easier to use. Drupal is somewhat complicated and cumbersome for a beginner. There are many key components in the system and there's a lot to comprehend. There's also a fairly large learning curve behind Drupal. But it's all worth the effort in the end.

    I've always hated working with Joomla. Learning Drupal was a godsend. It's such a better system.

    Here's why you should use Drupal. :mamoru:

    Holy shit, that is the first positive post I think I've ever seen you make. Even with your embeded sarcasm. Very nice.

    We'll look in to it. We are committed to Joomla for a couple projects, but I'd consider Drupal if it truly is better and we can find someone who can implement it correctly and integrate it with the design.

    Hey, I have all kinds of positive posts in here. :wtc:

    Also, Drupal created their own templating engine for their CMS, and it's actually really easy to integrate any design into it.
