WordPress themes are quick to install and featured to change from old to new theme – 3 clicks and you’re done. You will find GenesisStudio Press, Themify, or ThemeLab premium themes for WordPress with SEO support and winning features, I love Genesis from StudioPress.
WordPress have more than 2000 free themes and 2500 plugins.
Joomla free theme collection is less as compared to WordPress. It has templates and extensions like WordPress themes and plugins but not as much as WordPress. The Installation process of templates and extension is slightly complex for beginners.
Joomla has around 1000 free themes.
Similarly Drupal is not leader in the availability of themes and modules. To install the theme you have to leave the site, then search for the module and theme you want to add, further locate the project’s zip file URL and finally enter the URL in the Modules or Themes page to complete the installation.
Drupal has around 1000 free themes.
WordPress – Widely used, have giant collection of themes and plugins, simple installation, free support, latest updates, rich with forums and free lancers community.
