2. WordPress


All hail the king, Many claim the WordPress market share of whooping 41% of all the websites is crumbling down, and Hocalwire is also heading towards capturing some share in the huge space. It is beyond doubt that WordPress is a king in the CMS market that has revolutionized the way the Internet and its content have been managed. The success of WordPress has to be credited to multiple factors, including being OpenSource, Easy to Deploy and maintain and a humongous party library with premium templates and plugins. There is a WordPress plugin for every use case, and News Room publishing is no exception.


3. Joomla


Joomla has the edge over WordPress due to its salient feature of supporting multiple languages. For a news publisher, it is very important to bring content with localization features where the audience will be able to engage with their regional language. Joomla can perform this with ease while still being a bit more complex when setting up and adopting the system for running a huge news website with multiple authors and categories. The trade that Joomla offers for being complex is heavily customizable; you can profile, global templates, methods to declare URLs, modify outputs as per request, publish by name, author and many other features. We do have the same in our Hocalwire CMS too!!!


4. Drupal


Being another open-source CMS and trying to fix the gaps left by WordPress, Drupal still powers many websites on the Internet. Though highly known for its feature-rich media creation and publishing capacity. There is a feature that puts Drupal in journalists and Editors. The ability to enter content lively after it has been published without encountering the administration console. Let's add spice to this; you will be able to do this on a mobile phone. With a vast number of Drupal users having content images, videos and audio in nature, the literary text and inline editing have taken a step back with Drupal.
