Today is Joomla!’s 5th birthday


Today is Joomla!‘s 5th birthday. On September 1st, 2005 the joomla. org sites were launched. Until that day, the Joomla! name was completely unknown to the world.

It is used by organizations as large as Apple, McDonald’s and the United Nations and by millions of people for their companies, hobbies and charities.

It is translated into 64 languages!

Approximately 2. 5% of the web now runs on Joomla! 

After 10 Millions Downloads, more than 5600 extensions at JED, Joomla! can now be proud of it success!

My download sections has served in the #Joomla! 1.5 era more than 334’681 downloads of my #Joomla! extensions 🙂


For all those that still don’t know the translation of #Joomla!  , it is the English spelling of the Swahili word jumla meaning “all together” or “as a whole.”
