The CiviCRM download page shows that it is available for Drupal, WP & Joomla I came across CiviCRM via the Joomla Extensions directory, but it seems not everything is equal among the CiviCRM installs; in particular no sample data for Joomla. I also had problems with the 4.7.6 build and not until I tried the 4.7.7 did I get anything up and running under Joomla - but the dashboard doesnt load (I'm using WAMP for a dev environment).

What is the most supported CMS from the 3x available as far as CiviCRM is concerned.

We use Drupal exclusively for all our projects. Many advantages such as drush; views integration; webform_civicrm module!

CiviCRM is CMS agnostic - and the community will support all three CMS-es. Most are on Drupal and Wordpress though so to get help - that's your best bet.

  • also Drupal has CiviCRM Entity, drupal.org/project/civicrm_entity . This makes CiviCRM api entities, Drupal entities,and allows integration with Entity Reference Field, Rules, and many other Drupal modules that integrate with Drupal Entities Commented Jan 28, 2017 at 17:29

Agree with KarinG. I think Drupal is the best supported and most integrated of the three CMS's at the moment. Wordpress is growing rapidly.
