Hello Johnston, Thanks for the question about upgrading the site to Joomla 3.x or migrating it to WordPress. These issues and also finding group/individual to make the transition (if it's not you) would typically require the services of a developer/development team or a Web design team, such as the one we have here at InMotion. In general, upgrades to newer versions of the software should be made - primarily because of security. There are always many security updates to software as it ages. Additionally, with softwares such as Joomla and WordPress, there are many improvements in functionality. So, you should always keep upgrading in order to keep your website secure, and also enjoy improvements that have been made to functionality. About the only reason you would NOT have the site upgraded would be because there is something critical like a plugin or theme that is necessary for business purposes. Otherwise, you will need find an individual or a team that can take on the project of upgrading or re-designing your website. We do have the InMotion Web Design Team that you can reach by phone/chat/email. Their contact information can be found here. Deciding between Joomla and WordPress may be something you need to review closely as it may require that you evaluate proposed solutions to make sure that your website needs/business needs (if your website is business related) are met. I hope this helps to answer your question. This kind of thing will require that you speak with the individuals who may take on the project. You should be ready with a summary of your website or business needs. If you have any further questions or comments, please let us know. Regards, Arnel C.
