DNN Comparison

DNN vs. WordPress

Clarity compares WordPress with DNN (DotNetNuke). When we compare DNN to WordPress, they usually discover DNN is more powerful, and in most cases, more comfortable to use. Historically, WordPress is easy to install, but this is not true after the implementation of the DNN Evoq, particularly the Cloud Edition. Both DNN and WordPress show to proof incredible speed. WordPress uses MYSQL and PHP, which gives it high speed, while DNN uses DotNET and SQL (MS-SQL, Postgres, SQL Express,  etc.).

WordPress is majorly used for blogging and small to mid-level marketing websites. Some people think it a blogging platform with web page extensions more than an original CMS. It has various themes at very cheap costs (skins, templates, whatever your favorite term), and most of them are now active and very strong. My site to purchase and review themes is Themeforest.net.updating plugins, Theme switching,  and building menus are more comfortable in WordPress. For smaller marketing websites, this can be good to help you keep your site design fresh, as it's cheap and straightforward to preview all themes. You do, yet, require to be careful of wildly accepting all plugin updates, as it can crash the site. If you can manage it, we suggest having a platform site, where you can "preflight" anything you require to shift to production.

Some believe that WordPress is organized more neatly compared to DNN. At Clarity, we don't agree because WordPress hasn't upgraded enough in many years, causing you to shift back and forth between the site and dashboard.

While DNN makes vast strides with every version and is natively integrated into the actual page, you're editing (built-in toolbar across the top of the page with the view, edit and layout modes, full and partial page cloning built-in, and many more). DNN is based on .NET, whereas WordPress on PHP. DOTNET is a first-tier developer's platform, implying that every college CS program can customize and develop the site. While both platforms have various modules/plugins available, DNN is more comfortable to create for integrations and customizations.

DNN vs. Joomla

. It's a little more challenging to decide between DNN and Joomla, as Joomla is created more for developers than marketers. Joomla proceeds to develop as a CMS, but just as Joomla was earning momentum, Magento intervened and stole most of its boom. They even finished offering professional assistance. As of the previous year, still, they had higher than 50 million downloads and controlled 3% of the CMS install base, another only to WordPress.

A secondary weak point is Joomla’s failure to work correctly with Windows, primarily because a majority of global organizations use the Windows operating system. Like WordPress, Joomla is created with PHP and also uses MySQL. It exceeds by operating in congruence with Linux. Joomla management functions can be hard to use, but are very robust, with many of the items you'd need a plugin for, built into the system. The security group settings are more unstable compared to DNN or WordPress. Still, some 3rd party modules will support you with this little problem. Joomla is an entirely adequate tool that is comparable to DNN. It just depends on which system you're using and whether you choose a machine whose community is overgrowing (DNN) versus one that has been decreasing. Joomla yet has a pretty much following, and that community has several more extra developers in it than WordPress' community, so your answer serves to be more accurate and technical. The best feature of Joomla is the capacity to add any link to any navigation menu. 

DNN vs. Drupal

Drupal is another PHP-based CMS. It's received more than 1 million sites used it, although their choice has been on a constant drop since 2015. When people relate DNN and Drupal, they often find DNN operates more efficiently with Internet Explorer, which is common among manufacturing and government. Drupal manages to run a little bit properly in Firefox. Drupal and DNN are alike in that they are both open-sourced and free. Drupal is also written in PHP and shared by GNU. According to w3techs.com, "Drupal is only practiced by 2.0% percent of the websites in the world." Drupal is generally utilized for a lot of government websites and personal blogs, similar to WordPress's community.

A group of Drupal users uses the Drupal core, which has all the essential features of a CMS system. Even Drupal is one of Clarity's supported development CMS platforms; we see fewer than 1% of our customer base using Drupal.
