This latest version offers over 200 new features and improvements, so decision makers will want to do their research before making the choice to upgrade.

Boss standing with a Drupal dropDrupal development, unlike Drupal site building, is code and language intensive. The Drupal framework is controlled and run by technologies with steep learning curves (and intimidating names) like PHP and Structured Query Languages, which your organization’s executives may not be familiar with.

Drupal Modules GuideDrupal websites are built with, and powered by, Drupal modules. There are two different types of Drupal modules - core, which are included with your original Drupal download, and contributed, which must be downloaded independently and added to your website. Modules are the easiest way to add new and useful features to your Drupal website without directly touching the codebase.

We have been using Drupal as our Content Management System (CMS) of choice for more than five years and we continue to be impressed by the software’s features and what can be built with it. If a client needs a robust content driven website with strict permission settings or a dynamic system of calls to manage appointments and reservations Drupal has been able to handle the job.

Drupal is free to use, meaning anyone with internet access can download the software and begin building a website with it. This enables anyone with an interest in the framework to download the directory and begin utilizing it for any of their web development, or web learning, projects. This ease of access is the reason why the open source software is one of the most popular content management systems (CMS) in the world.

Drupal’s content management system (CMS) is used by millions of websites today and the framework handles billions of calls everyday. It manages more than 130 government websites including whitehouse.gov and it is relied upon by numerous respected higher education institutions including Harvard, Princeton, and Stanford Universities.
