Why Choose Drupal over other CMS and Web Development Tools?

By Jackob Willson Subscribe to RSS | March 21st 2012 | Views:

If in case you are still confused about whether or not hiring a Drupal web development company is the best option for web development and CMS needs, let us go through some of the other popular tools vis-à-vis Drupal and try making a much more informed decision.

Joomla versus Drupal

Joomla is commonly assumed to be a better platform because of the easier looking buttons. Yet, most experienced developers will tell you that Joomla is typically more rigid and difficult to work on. Many plug-ins do not interact very well on this platform and does not offer an equally good hook system for cleaner URLs like Drupal.

Though Joomla is no doubt a good CMS, one cannot deny the obvious benefits offered by the later.

WordPress versus Drupal

Even though WordPress isn’t really considered to be a CMS system, the functionality of both these platforms justifies the comparison. While the former is one of the internet’s leading blogging tools, the later is an extremely flexible CMS platform. Both have their pros and cons. While Drupal can offer a blogging platform, WordPress is still considered the king of blogging systems on the web.

PHP -Nuke versus Drupal

While PHP-Nuke is relatively easy to setup, it does not offer the flexibility or expansion. Drupal allows you to add modules and is known to have much more secure systems in comparison.

Should I Build a CMS framework from Scratch?

It is believable that the first time one works on the Drupal framework, one can find it rather intimidating. At the same time, once you have familiarized yourself with the nodes, hooks and theme systems, you will be able to create your website almost 50 to 60 % faster than building one from scratch.

Using the services of a Drupal Web Development Company means that you will additionally gain access to over 2000 modules that help enhance the functionality of your website as well as the entire development process.

Benefits of Drupal:-

From a developer’s perspective, here are some of the benefits of implementing this CMS system for your development needs –

1. This platform offers great tools for effective categorization of content. Not only is It very sophisticated but its flexibility enables cross categorization and a rare option of free tagging.

2. The clear URLs and standard compliant HTML ensures that websites developed on this platform are search engine friendly and easy to optimize.

3. The plug-in systems are easily implementable due to tools such as Drupal Core via the ‘hook’ system that it offers. Since this framework is easily expandable it offers an added advantage over other popular CMS frameworks. The expansion can be easily facilitated through the 2000 plus modules such as the admin menus, image resizing functionality, performance improvement and easy content display.

4. The node system facilitates the easy content uploading and has proven to play a crucial role in the entire development exercise.

Once you familiarize yourself with the features and functions of this CMS framework you can leverage its tools for the benefit of creating an excellent website.
