Joomla structure confusing

All popular CMS have a clear structure. You know what is a module or block. But Joomla 1.5 has components, modules, mambots and extensions. Joomla-blocks / boxes called modules and I still dont know the difference between components and extensions. I think this is a reason why many profis prefer Drupal or Typo3 etc.

How to change 'Welcome to the Frontpage', index-title of Joomla 1.5

Joomla title annoying, because you must search long time to change 'Welcome to the Frontpage'. Normally you think you find it under global configuration but not. Second place to search is Frontpage-Manager but it is not there. To change it:

  • Go administrator
  • Click on Menus >> Main Manu
  • Select "Home" and edit
  • Click on System-Parameters
  • Change it and save!

CMS experiences with Drupal, Typo3, Joomla and Plone needed

Please add your experinces with these popular CMS/Frameworks. I am just a beginner and have some experiences with Joomla 1.5 and Drupal 6 series. I find Joomla's all-inclusive installation and Drupals flexibility awesome. I have just installed Typoe3 to test but it seems to take long time with many clicks to create and edit content. Therefore I didnt try it much.
