    Hi,

    If you know Joomla and has used it before then it would be very because it indexes faster in Search Engine. Or Wordpress is also good.

    Personally I haven't used Joomla but remember seeing some very nice sites designed with it. What features do you need for your site realitybites.in? If it's a blog I'd recommend WordPress because of its simplicity and user-friendliness. However, if you require more advanced features you might need something like Joomla.

    It really depends on what you're more familiar with using. Have you used either of these platforms before? More than likely, if you're very familiar with Joomla, than that will be the better of the choices. However, nothing is wrong with Wordpress either. Wordpress is great site building platform as well. I'm personally much more experienced with wordpress, seeing how I know very very little with Joomla. So when it comes to the decision for me, I'd have to choose wordpress. What do you feel your skills are better at? That should answer you question better than any of us can.

    If you're most familiar with Wordpress it might be best to stick with that. You could also add additional scripts to your site to meet your requirements. For example if you want to include a directory you could use a directory script such as PHPLD.

    Wordpress is catching up to Joomla in functionality, and both are very good pieces of software.

    You have to plan 3 to 5 years in advance of what you are doing for a full fledged site. Does Joomla have what you for see needing as the site grows? Will WordPress have those options that you want later?

    When deciding for a big site a lot should be considered like that. If it is a smaller site you can change later if need be.

    I agree with fergal. In addition, if you want a small site with just a few pages, you can use WordPress as CMS. But if you want to building a Large community site? Get Joomla! (Drupal is also a good choice)...

    It doesnt matter joomla or wordpress, just use the one you know well. Then, you can make it better.
    On the other hand, content is more important, if you can provide best content, your visitor will never care you are uing joomla or wordpress
