Simple content management system

Pros

For each coach of our sports club, we create a small website, in fact, a personal page. For this task we use CMS Drupal. The platform offers a large selection of templates for pages. The main advantage of Drupal is the high speed of loading sites.

Cons

One of the main drawbacks of CMS Drupal is the inability to expand the basic functionality of sites with the help of additional plug-ins and modules. Some features require programming knowledge.

Secure platform

Pros

The Drupal platform is well suited for our large sites, allowing us to customize them to fit your needs. The security level significantly exceeds the Wordpress engine.

Cons

A rather large amount of time passes between the release of major updates, which are not easy to install. To install it requires additional knowledge.

Simple CMS for small sites

Pros

We use CMS Drupal when creating small sites: blogs and landing pages. The platform provides the ability to manage access rights for users. You can use the templates for the design of the site. The function of connecting the forum to the site is supported.

Cons

The main drawback of CMS Drupal is a low level of security. Sometimes sites created on the basis of this platform are hacked by intruders. For this reason, you should not create large portals or online stores on this CMS.

Drupal: Free Professional Platform For Websites

Good experience!

Pros

The first thing that strikes me is the "free" aspect of the software, very professional and secured. A Drupal instance, from many opinions is considered many times more secured than a WordPress instance. Basic technical skills are required to use Drupal.

Cons

For some widely-used features, Drupal does require a fee. Drupal support also is less common and more pricey.

Powerful CMS with excellent customer support

Pros

The Drupal platform has a clear interface in which we initially just had to navigate. Differs in high stability. The support service actively helps to cope with the difficulties encountered.

Cons

For CMS Drupal, it is an order of magnitude harder to find quality themes than for Joomla or Wordpress. It takes a lot of time and effort to bring the appearance to a normal state.

Excellent Open Source CMS

Building a corporate website

Pros

Once you know how to use Drupal, the possibilities are endless. Drupal is packed with features and you can really accomplish anything.

Cons

If you're not familiar with Drupal, its an excellent CMS but you'll likely have to contract out the work. I think for a do-it-yourself solution there are better systems out there.

Perspective platform

Pros

A powerful platform that is able to handle a fairly large number of requests quickly and efficiently. For our company, one of the key advantages of Drupal is fairly simple integration with other CMS.

Cons

The calendar function does not work. To complete the installation, you need additional knowledge, unlike WordPress and Joomla, which almost any PC user can deliver.

A powerful tool for creating websites

Pros

This Drupal platform allows us to do whatever we need. With proper programming knowledge, we managed to bring most of even free plug-ins to perfection to suit our needs.

Cons

Many of the presented modules are already not being supported and have significant flaws. Compared with some other systems, Drupal is slower.

Functional but sophisticated tool

Pros

This engine is open source, so the system is constantly checked and updated by professionals. Very pleased with the functionality and mobility of the application. The modularity of the engine allows you to easily add new plug-ins that enhance features.

Cons

A program that is very difficult to learn, is too powerful and multifunctional, it is impossible for beginners to cope with it. Too active use of the database does not allow for the creation of a website cheap hosting, which can be overloaded and work incorrectly.

Convenient solution for web applications

Pros

I use the Drupal content management system as a framework for developing web applications. The service provides a detailed analytics system. There is a batch file upload feature. You can integrate large payment systems.

Cons

For me personally, the main drawback of the Drupal content management system is the minimum number of available plug-ins, with which you can extend the basic functionality of this CMS.

Pros

In our company, we use CMS Drupal to develop small corporate websites and blogs. The platform offers a large selection of templates for website design. There is a graphic theme editor and full integration with payment systems.

Cons

One of the main disadvantages of CMS Drupal is the minimum number of plug-ins to extend the basic functionality. To implement additional features for the platform, you need to write applications manually.

Reliable "framework" for web applications

Pros

I use CMS Drupal as a “framework” when developing web applications. The system provides a large set of useful tools: the ability to work with XML-formats, the creation of email newsletters, built-in file manager with support for the batch file upload function. On the basis of Drupal, you can create a full-fledged online store.

Cons

Among the shortcomings of CMS Drupal, I want to note the demands of the platform on the technical parameters of virtual servers. While working on large projects, it is often necessary to purchase additional capacity.

Cons

The main drawback of CMS Drupal is the lack of free modules for expanding the basic functionality of the site.

A CMS Without a True Niche

As other CMSs shed their original niches and begin to become more general purpose, robust web content platforms, Drupal is quickly losing reasons to exist. At one point it may have been a good choice, but that time may have passed.

Pros

Drupal is a very powerful CMS that can give you really granular control over what your site is going to look like without making you have to dive directly into code.

Cons

Unfortunately, Drupal just isn't as popular as many CMS platforms out there that have tremendous community support with lots of themes, plugins, and answers to be found everywhere.
