Joomla is a free and open-source content management system (CMS) for publishing web content.

Joomla is built on a model–view–controller web application framework that can be used independently of the CMS.

What is a content management system (CMS)?

A content management system is software that keeps track of every piece of content on your Web site. Content managed can be simple text, photos, music, video, documents, or just about anything you can think of, from simple text through to complex video etc. A major advantage of using a CMS is that it requires almost no technical skill or knowledge to manage. Since the CMS manages all your content, you don’t have to! :)
