about Drupal and Contao Aug 2012

In both a good and a bad way. It's good because it's highly customizable. It's bad because it's a nightmare to maintain because of it.

Out of the box, it doesn't really do all that much, and the templating is complex, too. Again, because it's very flexible, which is good when you need it, but gets in the way if you don't.

So what I'm saying here is that you will have to invest quite some time to actually learn how to use this thing and about all the plug-ins you don't know you will need. If you don't have that time, or are not willing to take it, better stay clear of this. It's very easy to mess your installation up to a point where it all falls apart.

The best CMS ever!!!

Positive Comment by DanSantos
about Drupal Jul 2012

Folks, I have been using Drupal since it was born. It is really powerful tool and piece of software. I can tell you that there are big companies using Drupal - it's 100 times better than Joomla, WordPress, and others around. I am a genuine user of Drupal - with Drupal you can integrate eCommerce, videos, blogs, forums, and many of other things. The new version is completly SEO what makes the tool even better if you want to be found in search engines. I like Drupal and it does the work nicely. The only bad point, as any other software, is the modules uploads - these you will need to upload manually still. A good example of Drupal website is ITsiders - an educational site I did for ITIL followers and people interested in IT. Take a look when you have time. Bye for now.

Cool, fun, complex, but too glitchy

about Drupal and WordPress May 2012

I have used many CMS controllers because I own a web site. It was a lot of fun to pick out and add plugins, and it's actually more customizable than wordpress. Problem was, my website soon grew to 100k+ veiws a day, and with that came thousands of members. When I would add some plugins, they would conflict or make glitches. Some even made my database suddenly triple in size over a day. They have more plugins than anyother CMS, but a lot these plugins are made by beginner programmers that don't know what they are doing apparently. I've had to dump my server and start over too many times. Wordpress, never had a single problem.
