Using Joomla as a platform

As you would no doubt be aware, Joomla is a very flexible platform that allows you to build websites, Intranets and web based applications. Since the code uses object oriented programming, it's all extendable, and you can even override the core output and customise to suit whatever your needs are.

Joomla has over 7,500 extensions that can be installed to add extra functionality, and they are all licensed under the GNU GPL, so include all source code which you can modify to suit your needs.
