What is Joomla?

Joomla is an open-source, free content management system (CMS). It was first released in 2005, and has been continuously developed ever since.

Joomla has a raft of native features that allow it to do things out of the box that other CMS solutions such as WordPress need multiple extensions and plugins to achieve.

For businesses, charities, organisations, schools and more, Joomla offers a secure and easy to use platform to create a wide range of website types, whether you want a small informational website or a large e-commerce platform.

Dissolve pairs the core features of Joomla with core website design tools, and provides you with over 20 years of website design experience of its founder. Our video training, support forum, regular guest experts and scheduled live masterclasses are here to help you make the most of the Joomla platform and the design tool core features that will leave the control of your website in your hands. Forever.

SECURE
AND PROTECTED

The Joomla Security Strike Team monitor and maintain the CMS software, releasing updates and security patches often before any discovered exploits are used in the wild. Joomla updates are quick and easy to apply with the click of a button.

Add in native support for two-factor authentication, forced SSL encryption, Google ReCAPTCHA provision and flexible, customisable user access controls to be sure you know who can access what areas of your website and admin panel, Joomla has the built-in security features to keep your website safe.

FAST SITE LOADING
FEATURES ALL BUILT-IN

As with the SEO features, Joomla also comes with built-in support for features which help keep your website loading fast. From the native page caching tools, which also let you configure elements to not cache (such as dynamic forms and other similar content), Joomla also supports GZIP compression to deliver your content efficiently.

When you add Helix Ultimate, you're covered for CSS and JavaScript compression to provide the finishing touches. SP PageBuilder Pro lets you lazy-load images, and production mode removes style rendering which is no longer needed once the website is built.
