    Like WordPress, utilizing Joomla as a CMS and setting up and building a web site depends on the complexity of what you want to build. This Company that specializes in Joomla claims that it is approximately four weeks or more: http://www.hubumedia.com/questions/71-how-long-does-it-take-to-build-a-website

      Just to be clear the company you linked to says that is how long they as a company takes, not how long Joomla takes "Four weeks is the approximate development time that Hubumedia offers our clients."
      I work with both WordPress and Joomla and I could just as easily find a Wordpress developers who say they take that long or longer, which has little to do with Wordpress.

      Thanks for the conversation JD. My expertise is in WordPress. I gave you a possible Joomla resource to be nice, helpful, and help foster a healthy tech community. Development on any CMS depends on the exact features that are being implemented and the skill set of the developer.

    Sounds good Theodore! I have received very positive evaluations and overall feedback about the seminar at UNLV this past Saturday! I have also had others ask about when the next one would be. We are looking for the next one to be in August at UNLV. I will update you when we have chosen an exact date.

    3 hours seems like a long time just to set up a WordPress website. How long would you guess it would take to setup a Joomla website?
