Pros: My favorite part of Drupal is that it is really built to be more of a platform than just a CMS. To see what I mean, look up e-commerce platforms on WordPress, Joomla, or basically any direct competitor. You will find many options available that do things slightly different than each other. In Drupal, there is really only one option, and a slew of submodules to build out the functionality you need. This results in a much more stable, secure, reliable and consistent platform.
Second is the community. Everyone is on board with the idea of keeping it a platform and working together to make Drupal a great, modular CMS. Support, tutorials, documentation, and basic question/answers are readily available.
Cons: The upgrade paths between major versions is historically challenging. Drupal has promised to correct thing going from Drupal 8 to 9, but it is not yet available to confirm. As with any open source tool, you do have to be sure to keep up with any and all security updates to maximize security.
Overall: Well over half of my agency's digital business id conducted through Drupal websites and applications. We have used it with great success on anything from small, basic websites to full-scale business-critical applications.
Pros: Drupal is somewhat flexible to use in that you can customize the UI based on different cookies.
Cons: In order to update a theme, you have to update 5 different files. This is not intuitive nor does it make much sense.
Pros: I love simple designers like CMS Drupal. I do not need to delve into the subtleties of programming, because I can do most of the work with the help of a visual editor. It is excellent with CMS Drupal, it is convenient to work with it and the layout does not fly off.
Cons: Mastering CMS Drupal is still somewhat more complicated than WordPress. If you have little experience in creating websites, I do not recommend working with this platform. But if you are no longer a novice, then CMS Drupal will suit you perfectly.
Pros: This platform has all the functionality we need. The system has a high level of security, is notable for its considerable flexibility and has established itself in our eyes as stable work.
Cons: A huge number of templates are available in CMS Drupal, but creating them from scratch turned out to be incredibly difficult for our employees. The platform has no built-in search modules and plug-ins, like other systems.
Pros: Drupal is one of the best CMS. It's fully open-source platform that provides all essential features you need from one CMS. It's secure, stable and flexible.
I like the user-friendly interface , simple navigation and how easy is to create professional looking blogs/ websites.
Cons: I can point the huge learning curve as downside.
There are ton of free templates, however starting from scratch is a journey.
Compared to other CMS platforms, Drupal has lack of plugins.
Pros: I have been using WordPress for a long time. In it, I did not like the fact that the engine worked only with MySQL. Fortunately, CMS Drupal has a rich selection. Among the DBMS is Oracle and PostgreSQL.
Cons: No built-in search engine modules. In WordPress, I could add them through the administrative panel, and for this platform they need to be searched manually on drupal.org.
Pros: CMS has a huge number of free themes and templates that I was easy to find on the Internet. The system seamlessly integrates with many other products and allows you to quickly generate new pages.
Cons: It was very difficult to create a site on Drupal, and for this I had to spend a lot of time, much of which took away its study. Its performance depends on the browser used.
Drupal may become an amazing solution to your needs of managing huge content and building a site in a relatively short time. The platform is as simplified as possible so that people with no developing skills could also use it but still, you can find it kind of complicated to use. However, I absolutely recommend you to give it a try.One of my favorite features of Drupal is to choose the content type. Though other platform competitors allow writing some content and build pages, they do not let you choose the type of content with all its different features. Besides, you will be satisfied to find out how flexible and easy customizable the platform is. It doesn’t require special skills to edit your content and manage your website. If you are short of time but you need to quickly build websites or update the content of your website without the professional help of web developers then Drupal is the platforms you are looking for. The platform is well suited for managing a large amount of content. It can be used both for business and personal purposes since it suggests a number of variants of customizing and adjusting it to your needs.

The platform suggests ready themes which you may apply if you want, but to tell the truth, those themes look very simple and not professional. So if you want your website to look attractive and professional you should build your own themes. For using the software at first you need to install it in on your PC. As it turns out it is not an easy task and need the help of a specialist to install it. On the one hand, it is amazing to have so many tools at hand, on the other hand, it may be confusing to choose which tool exactly you need to apply to get the desired result.
Likelihood to recommend: 8/10
Pros: I understood from the very beginning that it would be easy to work with CMS Drupal. To install it, it was necessary to press only one button in your account. It was also easy to work with content, as the administration panel can be customized.
Cons: I would not recommend this CMS to newcomers who have not even worked with WordPress before. Most modules will have to be modified manually, and this requires knowledge and experience.
