The Drupal Content Management System (CMS)

Over the last three years I've worked a lot with the Drupal Content Management System, or Drupal CMS. Drupal powers some of the biggest websites on the internet, including websites like WhiteHouse.gov, and I've used it exclusively for all of my websites since 2008. I've found that while Wordpress is an excellent solution for blogs and many "mom and pop" websites, Drupal has the horsepower and framework to be used for much larger websites.

Frankly, Drupal is so powerful I don't know what you can't do with it. Some things you can do are:

  • Create a blog
  • Online store
  • Power whitehouse.gov
  • Publish a book
  • Create photo galleries
  • Create forums
  • Create job postings and resume websites
  • Much, much more

Because Drupal offers a powerful, mature programming API, programmers like myself can create all sorts of custom web applications, while Drupal provides a nice framework that provides a real multi-user (social) platform, user roles and management, a programming community that is concerned about security, and hundreds (possibly thousands) of modules and themes which you can easily add on to make Drupal do, well, just about anything.

If you're thinking about creating a multi-user (social) website of any type, I encourage you to take a good look at Drupal. In fact, just contact me, and I'll be glad to provide a free demo. I think you'll like what you see.
