Without a doubt, two of the most popular PHP-based projects out there are WordPress and Joomla. In this new post from SitePoint they compare the two on the basis of both their support and community (part 4 of a 5 part series).
Let's face it, an open-source content management system without a thorough user base, support system and community is destined for failure. We are comparing two giants in the CMS game here, so we already know they must be doing many things right in these departments. In this part of our series, we're going to be covering exactly what Joomla and WordPress have to offer when it comes to the support community.
Their comparison includes things like: WordPress.org vs Joomla.org, their respective support forums, other initiatives surrounding them and places you can find others to help you in your WordPress or Joomla work.
