Picking a content management system, or CMS, for your next website is often one of the hardest tasks possible. While there may be thousands more programmers and designers who know the ins and outs of these two platforms, you can’t forget to at least look at other content management systems that could spearhead your way to success. Drupal is one of those platforms that’s extremely popular, but often gets left in the dust due to popularity issues. Drupal, like most content management systems is an open source platform that has more than 600,000 users constantly developing and refining the interface. The program is free to download and install for whatever your needs may be. It supports all of the latest programming technologies such as CSS and HTML5, and should never be considered a platform that is behind the time.
Additionally, the Drupal community support forum is one of the easiest ones to navigate. Not only are problem spots always being posted, but they’ve created a community that allows you to easily browse other issues, while finding known issues on their own. The Drupal community often appears to have a tight bond, and encourages everyone to get involved when building out their site.
Drupal's Updates are Common:
The latest release has brought this content management system to the forefront of security. With tighter security implemented for scheduled tasks and more intense log in system, you’ll be happy to know that even the most sensitive information is highly guarded in one of the most tightly knit platforms that are available today.
Additionally, the user interface, or backend almost seems like it’s gotten a complete overhaul, while still appearing familiar to users of previous versions. You’ll find easy access to managing your products and blogs, and all modules within Drupal can be updated through any internet connection. This module updating puts Drupal right in line with that of Wordpress, which often was the main culprit behind leaving Drupal in the dust.
