WordPress vs Joomla

I am going to redo the site and have been thinking about replacing the Article Manager CMS that is powering the site now. While Article Manager has met my needs for the past several years it simply doesn’t have some of the functionality I want to include in the redesign.

I had almost decided to do it in WordPress when I reinvestigated Joomla. I even had a nice Premium Theme I purchased that looked like it would do the job. However, I really like some of the extensibility in Joomla and now I am not so sure.

Currently has about 650 pages and about 2,000 photos that I will have to migrate so I want to make sure I get it right the first time.

I have done a bunch of WordPress sites and pretty much know what it is about but my experience with Joomla is limited with most of the investigations I did of it a year or more ago.

If anyone has comments on pros and cons of using one over the other, I’d love to hear your thoughts.
