The speed of the site for administrator or developer is slow and also the user interface is not friendly for admin. It uses multiple development languages code modification I need a lot of knowledge. It also uses a lot of memory space. Clearing cache frequently and slow loading of application after that is very annoying while being in development mode. Adding and removing a class or div at some HTML structures or templates has some restrictions, which also restrict UI for application.

Drupal helps me a great deal since it is a CMS package for Web content management of many kinds. I use it to post research findings and for open public network collaboration purposes. The basic installation includes, among other things, blog tools, email forms, search engines and site maps. It has hundreds of plugins or complements with different functions to meet our requirements. It gives us the ability to build custom modules that you can use. We can do a lot of personalization to meet your needs. It has an excellent administration of user profiles.
Drupal has helped me develop a website for our company with very little knowledge of HTML and web scripts programming languages. The user interface is easy to use for new users and the platform is strong and stable. It can create beautiful websites.
It is not supported as it used to be a long while back. The support can take days to respond to your emails.
Drupal has helped me learn how to design a website without major web programming skills.
I wanted to create a website for the company since we did not have a budget for a website so I took up the challenge and thanks to Drupal I was able to design a website.
It's a good CMS for Web content management. The most we like about is that Drupal is Open source thus it has big community that wecan ask if we have any question(and we had many). It's easy to work with. Don't need great skills to achieve the job. The latest version also fix many issues that were related with the styling.
If you want to build something more complex you would need some technical skills. This is also good because it gives you the flexibility to create customized structure.
Recommending it for collaborative work in corporate media. The best part about Drupal is that you can do anything. All the build-in templates come with the feature of responsive site.
Drupal is giving us flexible modules that are separating by layers the website and thus being more organized. Give us portable code that can be transfered. Biggest benefit is that we don't need technical skills to build content.
Drupal is a really robust web development platform with lots of tools. I like that Drupal propose a lot of different modules like video, membership, commerce. Thanks to them you may add new features to your website. What is important, each module has submodules, which help to add only those blocks which you need. The best thing is that you may combine different functions from different modules.
I don't quite like that the Drupal admin panel has an older looking design. Everything is too sharp and without much color. When we started using it, Drupal did not seem to be very intuitive, but I got used to it quickly. I also dislike that there are no simple visual builders. It still takes a bit of time to create a new layout.
I would recommend Drupal to those that are willing to do some learning and having an interest in web design beyond simple DIY tools. It is a reliable and flexible platform. The level of security is pretty high. The most important thing is that Drupal will help you to create a professional website without overly complicated steps, unless you want to introduce more advanced custom features.
The Drupal platform has given me a good balance between a complex and simple web development platform. Though there are many modules and features that allow me to create robust and well-structured websites simply, it also leaves much room for coding and more advanced development and rich website design and functionality. The available templates also make starting on designs much easier.
For some things, Drupal is incredibly fast and simple to use. I can post an event to our website, or make an edit in minutes. The resulting website is also incredibly polished and professional looking. It is also useful as a very large institution incorporate multiple independent entities that are quite large in and of themselves, to be able to display a simultaneously unified and diversified appearance between their individual sites, but also to share a common system with common features, to allow for instances of collaboration.
If you come in to a website that has been created by someone else, or worse by several individuals over the course of years, it can be next to impossible to find some things. There are multiple ways to create a page, and depending upon which method they used, that particular section of text that you want to edit could be buried in any number of locations. Some of these locations are in and of themselves buried within a labyrinthine interface. Some pieces of content actually exist and must be edited in multiple locations. We struggle in particular with a lack of archiving ability on certain features, so we must leave it on the site indefinitely or delete it and lose the record. Drupal's interface, and text editor in particular, is also limited in terms of content styling - I had to use html just to change the font color of a phrase. We actually needed to employ third party development assistance just to add an additional social media icon - this was not something our communications team was able to use the admin interface alone to add. Finally, Drupal struggles with a lot of different file formats, as far as uploading is concerned.
We rely on our website to get our work out to new audiences, and keep our current audiences engaged in what we do. Drupal makes the pathway for your most regularly posted pieces of content, like events and stories, readily accessible to allow for a constant and steady stream of updates, ensuring the full range of our activity is highly visible and our site is always current and up to the minute.
Drupal is a reliable Content Management System, as it powers a long list of popular websites. The software provides a wide range of features and functionality:
- Search Engine Optimisation is of utmost importance for the health of your site. If your website doesn't achieve well in terms of page rankings and search results, your online presence will suffer badly. Speaking from personal experience, Drupal does perfectly as long as you follow SEO Norms. Moreover, you are offered SEO tools.
- Security is vital for anything on the Internet. Drupal has over the years earn a reputation for its secure and powerful performance while it has had its own share of issues like numerous SQL injection vulnerabilities. The community has been quick to respond to the problems, and for most of the time, Drupal has fared well in terms of security.
- Drupal provides a large number of modules, themes and plugins that you can use to extend the functionality of your website. The software enables you to customize your site and make it meet your needs.
The learning curve is steep, and it requires some efforts to understand, how the program works. Also, customization isn't the most straightforward process. Installation of an additional number of plugins can cause Drupal to slow down.
Drupal is excellent for large or complex websites, but if you haven't used Content Management Systems before and know only the basics of web development, you won't manage the tool.
The software enabled me to build large and complex web pages from "Lego Bricks" instead of writing lines of code. The modules allowed me to save a lot of the time.
The ability to build custom modules that are usable by the whole team, regardless of dev experience. Drupal also has a very large array of pre-built modules for all purposes and is constantly expanding.
It is very difficult for content editors to also edit HTML or code. That is very much limited to developer roles, and it's hard to have any crossover.
Consider the needs and resources of your business. Effective implementation of Drupal requires full-time, or at least always-available dev support even for small businesses. Larger sites (50+ pages) may want multiple developers available to keep up to speed with updates, security and changes to your website. Permissions for large teams also take a fully dedicated web admin.
In summary, it's not as agile as newer, marketing-focused solutions such as Hubspot CMS, but it is very powerful and has a strong history.
An easily editable, maintainable website with a high number of pages and users.
I like that Drupal gives me control over many of the design and layout aspects of my website. There are many themes from the Drupal community I can use to get websites or landing pages up and running, or at least started, very quickly. The control panel has options to let me update content dynamically, which can then appear on all relevant pages and sections in real time. I like being able to update nodes once rather then manually updating content across many pages. There are many tutorials and community discussions to help guide me through many of the common steps and problems that may occur.
Compared to other CMS platforms like WordPress, I find Drupal to be much more complex and harder to understand. I think it takes a decent amount of technical knowledge to be able to implement and modify a Drupal install successfully. Some of the common themes are rather poorly designed and virtually useless for professional business purposes.
I would definitely recommend Drupal as CMS platform that can give you a good amount of control over the design of your web assets. If you don't have much time to committ to learning about the system, you should start with a theme and go from there.
Drupal gives me a high amount of control over the web assets I design with it. It allows me to update content and page styles dynamically so I can get a fresh version up and running with limited delay. The cost of running Drupal is generally very low, which is great for our overall marketing budget. The Drupal community gives us creative ideas on how to leverage the platform for various business purposes we didn't consider before.
