Which program is better and designing and creating an online magazine? Joomla or WordPress?

I have had an online magazine for 3 years, and we are looking to spice up the website. We’ve used Joomla, but are now looking for something new. Is WordPress better than Joomla? We will be adding content rich items on the site: videos, etc. Any suggestions?

I don’t have much experience with Joomla (although I’ve dabbled a bit with it), but here is what I have seen with WordPress.

There are lots of WP magazine themes and if you pay you get very beautiful looking themes. There are tons of magazine websites that use WordPress. Adding rich content like videos etc is never a problem with WordPress because there are so many plugins available that if you spend just a little bit of time searching the plugin index (or asking in the forum), you can get a plugin that would serve your exact needs.

Overall, I’ve had fellow developers say WP is easier to maintain compared to Joomla ones. It’s also much easier to maintain.

Hope this helps.
