Contao Comments

Highly flexible

Positive Comment by DanMan
about Contao and Drupal Aug 2012

This is one of the most flexible, customizable yet manageable CMS I've ever used. You can implement even intricate designs right out of the box, without having to install a plethora of plug-ins first, that you may not even know exist, let alone configure. I usually get away with 3 plug-ins tops. Hows that, Drupal?

The documentation is integrated into the administration area, so you don't have to consult a dedicated manual unless you want to.
