Pros: Drupal as a CMS like most others has a higher build in security than others, to me I can say is the best PHP CMS that provides optimum security

Cons: when it comes to installation on wampp, xampp, or lampp, it usually exceeds 30s required for a php script to be completely get installed, thus causing install failure.

Overall: I am very happy about the security of Drupal

Pros: When it comes to a website we blindly go with drupal, that's the trust we have with drupal. This is a limitless content management system, we can mold it the way we want be it a small website or an enterprise website with loads of content, everything can be managed easily with an ease.

Cons: I am not entitled to fingerprint this beautiful piece of script, which is here from decades, powering millions of websites and blogs.

Pros: What I like most about Drupal is that it is free, you can make a complete implementation without investing money in software, we have chosen to implement only free software, so we have done it without cost, I like the possibility of being beyond the simple The content of the administrator has options for future developments, it is easy to install and its use is quite practical, I liked the fact that it has a nice and worked administration interface that makes it easier to explain to users how they perform their tasks. Daily within the application, the English-speaking community is numerous, which helps with some problems that may arise along the way. I think the system of blocks that has at the moment of structure the content within the page makes it relatively pleasant, we have taken a project to its final phase with Drupal I can say that we have done well.

Cons: The first thing that comes to my mind about what I do not like about Drupal is the cache system that has sometimes driven me crazy, it serves obsolete content and there are many conflicts when different users need to edit the same article, another problem is that there is failures in some buttons of the administration, sometimes the buttons do not perform any action, I had problems because sometimes the functionality of uploading an image or a pdf file fails when they are large, I think Drupal is designed for programmers and not for people without experience In the area of information technology, this could improve, the Spanish-speaking community has fallen short, it is difficult to find documentation and quality help in my mother tongue, I feel that Drupal is staying a bit behind in terms of extensions If there were more, it would be more attractive for more people.

Overall: In my work I managed to complete the development of a project with this software, our team was congratulated by our bosses and the board of directors is very happy with the results, we are currently in the quality testing phase, I hope that soon Drupal can be launched in the production environment On a personal level, I see it as an option to do independent work, so I can obtain many benefits.

Pros: It is a highly recommended CMS to create websites quickly, has many tools that help us administer the site, can program new modules if you have the necessary knowledge and has an API that makes life easier when creating new things.

Cons: Maybe it is not as easy to use as other CMS, but it is quite complete to create a website, and I think that the Back-end is missing some improvements.

Overall: It helps to create web pages quickly with quality and good functionalities.

Pros: Drupal is another Open Source CMS. It does about the same job of organizing content as WordPress. A lot of the features are the same as other open source CMS available. Drupal used to be more robust than WordPress and still handles projects with large amounts of content better. It has a lot of modules available but less themes. The community is a little smaller that supports it but it is still large enough that it will not be going anywhere in the near future. Even though Drupal is built on PHP it is supposed to be more secure than WordPress making it a better platform is security is important to you.

Cons: It has less templates, modules (Plugins) and a smaller community than WordPress. If you are going to use the platform having some development skills is important.

this CMS is very flexible, and the inclusion of modules you can do different things in the portals

Pros:
1.) It is a very complete CMS since it includes many features by default, so you do not need to install extensions or modules to create any type of web (blog, store, discussion forum, corporate, etc.) in very few Steps.

2.) While other CMS are very oriented to a type of web, for example Magento is a specialist in large online stores, or WordPress is optimized for blogs, Drupal offers the possibility of adapting to many formats in a simple way.

3.) Great capacity of user administration. From the control panel you can edit in a very efficient way the permissions of each user, create user groups and manage all the access points.

4.) Simple graphic editing. Within its multiple functions allows you to make simple graphic editions of the template or the landing without having to leave the editor.

5.) All the content is structured which allows us to re-use it in different landings.

Cons:
1.) Although its functionalities are multiple, its installation requires a little extra knowledge, especially when compared to its competitors WordPress or Joomla !.

2) It is a very modern CMS, so if you are from the old school, it may be difficult for you to adapt a bit to your structure.

3.) It is not prepared for the management of big data. In the event that our website has a lot of content or is a great blog, or an online store with hundreds of Drupal articles will leave us a little thrown, because it generates too many requests to database and does not manage the information in an effective way.

4.) It also does not support much traffic. If your website starts to have many visits be careful, since you can suffer constant drops from the server.

Pros: In my opinion Drupal is a great CMS, with an infinite number of options to develop. You could say that whatever you want to add to your site is available and if you can not, you can develop it with the advice of the community.

Cons: Although in Drupal there are a large number of templates and modules with which to develop, a basic knowledge of styles is required in order to obtain the expected result. It is advisable to document to use Drupal.

Overall: It is one of the CMS that I use the most in my work. It is simply great.

Pros: We were able to give everyone access to Drupal, and were able to add the correct admin levels. It make it easy for the content editors to add content, the reviewers to review, and then publish right away.

Cons: We ran into some bugs and issues when using Drupal that required us to reach out to get help. Without these issues we would have had a great experience overall.

Pros: What I like most about Drupal is that it's free, and that it's improved over the years so it's consistently being managed and developed. There are also a lot of necessary features included.

Cons: Learning curve takes a lot of time, and the online documentation is very heavy to get through. It's really better for someone that's already familiar with it and has developed custom themes to work with, rather than using the free themes (they're very generic). There are a lot of moving parts in this CMS that are probably unnecessary for half of the sites that use it. Also, it's very hackable.

Pros: With a world-wide collective of active developers, Drupal is the developer's dream. There are a variety of installation profiles to give you a head start. Unlike Wordpress 99% of amazing modules are FREE. Companies like Sony and the White House use Drupal. If you can dream it you can do it in Drupal. The open-source community is helpful and always contributing new models. Because it is database driven you can create complex data sets that can connect with your current tools. When we build sites that need to scale we use Drupal. Great CDN module that works with Amazon AWS for super fast load time.
Drupal allows you to build Enterprise level sites without custom code.

Cons: The only con to Drupal is the steep learning curve. It takes some time to become an expert. It is also helpful to find a host that understands Drupal or get some help. A server tweaked for Drupal is the best way to go and not always easy to find. If you know what you are doing you will have no issues.

Overall: I always recommend those that are serious about creating websites that scale build on Drupal.

Pros: Drupal is very extensible, scales well if you understand the architecture, is relatively easy to code for, and deals with a whole lot of "dumb webserver tricks" by default (or with an easy UI).

A common framework for "approved" community projects provides baseline quality to contributed code, and makes it simple to do things others have needed to do. Also easy to join and contribute to those teams.

Content editors can get access to do things like redirects and custom error pages without access to web server configs or custom coding. Re-usable components, strict API and framework, and it's possible to assemble a fancy site with less pain than many enterprise solutions.

Cons: The strength is also the weakness-- easy extensibility via PHP means all of the problems of that language-- namely the common namespace, poor error handling, potentially sloppy memory usage, and the ability for a single bad bit of contributed code to bring the whole site to a crashing halt.

The product needs some solid system architecture to scale it up. Out of the box, it's not ready to go live.

The documentation / web forums are hit-or-miss, with a lot of outdated information, repetitive "go use drush" answers, and limited access to the assistance from the core development team.

The recent moves from Drupal7 to Drupal8 resulted in a lot of "hey that's cool changes", throwing out past development effort, adding extra layers of abstraction, and making usage more challenging for little (or no) gain in function. A number of serious issues remained for months to years after D8 was declared production-ready, while a lot of gee-whiz new features were added. Not a good look...

The product remains competent, but the lack of interest in production-quality for D8 may hint at a long term decline in this project's viability.

Pros: With relevant experience, prototyping in drupal can be very rapid and a hustle-free activity. The scaling of a project is also excellent.

Cons: Drupal con sometimes be very slow due to it's high consumption of resources especially for beginners who have not set it up properly yet.

Overall: Drupal has been very useful to especially on my client side projects since i can use it as an API as well.

Pros: CMS Drupal is good because it is suitable for both simple and more complex projects. The administrative panel in this CMS is powerful and at the same time intuitive, if necessary you can create a multilingual project, and for those who want to save on the Internet, there are a lot of free templates and themes for the engine. In general, I am very pleased with this CMS and can recommend it to use.

Cons: If you encounter Drupal for the first time, training will take quite a lot of time. But in 3-5 days you will understand that even a serious web project is created and configured extremely easily.

Pros: Drupal is an open-source CMS that works well when set up correctly. I've seen a lot of websites that have been built by developers that have never worked with Drupal before, and then the end result can sometimes be a nonsensical nightmare, especially for the content administrators. Drupal has the ability to create custom built websites with powerful integrations to countless other platforms, and it can really shine when Drupal experts handle the builds.

Cons: Drupal still has quite a learning curve, even with a customized back-end. People who are used to Wordpress or Squarespace don't find it as intuitive, and without proper training, creating and publishing content properly is difficult.

Cons: Administration, maintenance and security updates are time-consuming and difficult. The admin interface "out of the box" is confusing.

Pros: There is almost no limit to what you can create with Drupal. And the themes are really quite fantastic! It's an open source platform so the cost is right on point. And it's a fast CMS that rivals WordPress easily.

Cons: Setting it up and learning the commands can be a bit of a headache and I had to get help setting up the servers and email clients. Some of Drupal is not very user-friendly. Definitely a CMS for those at skill levels intermediate and up.

Overall: I learned a lot of what not to do, and a little bit about server set up and code writing. Ultimately, I am happy having a good CMS like this that I can use as an option with our clients.

Comments: I have been programming and designing websites for well over 20 years. I have built sites in Drupal and of all the Content Management Systems out there, this is the least recommended by our company. The idea behind a Content Management System is to help the client/user manage their own site and keep costs down. With that in mind the interface is sloppy and difficult for the user in comparison to other CMS systems which are superior to Drupal in every way. In addition, the cost to build a Drupal site versus a Joomla or Wordpress site is nearly 3 times the cost and I attribute alot of that to the interface. You can build just about anything you need using Joomla and I would highly recommend you don't consider Drupal unless you want to spend a great deal of money.

Pros: Wide range of program capabilities As a Senior Developer, I cannot really recommend this software because of the difficulty involved for the client/user

Cons: Very difficult to teach the client/user to manage on their own Very expensive for the client/user in terms of cost to the developer and software Sloppy interface for the user

Pros: Drupal is an old school CMS, which has been in use for a long time. It is pretty flexible and allows you to choose from some templates to build you website around

Cons: Though it is widely used, it is really hard for beginner to use it. Besides, I wish free templates looked nicer and there were better tutorials to help you with your first website.

Pros: Well, when you have the white house website being designed with Drupal, that tells you something. If it is good enough for Trump, it is good enough for the rest of us! High functionality and ability to customize everything. And the price is perfect!

Cons: A bit more confusing that other products in the same space. There is a reason why everyone uses word press and not drupal. But that doesn't mean that it isn't a solid product. Just a higher learning curve.

Pros: It's open source! You can build just about anything with it, and you can do most things right within the user interface. Many things you can do in the UI such as building complex views are quite simple once you know the process, and would require writing complex code or database queries in most other systems. The community is excellent and there are thousands of free contributions. Drupal is great about security releases and about reviewing the security of Drupal core as well as the contributed space. Powerful theming layer using Twig templates in Drupal 8+. Drupal Commerce allows for a powerful e-commerce system.

Cons: The admin interface is not always intuitive for non-technical users. There's a learning curve involved with Drupal and many of its major contributed modules. Requires contributed modules for, or just entirely lacks, some features which users unfamiliar with the technical aspects of Drupal might expect. Drupal can be slow compared to some other systems, but its great caching layer mitigates this.

Pros: I like that it is easy to edit the content on my website, so I no longer need to hire a web developer to change one misspelling or to add another blog post. The user interface for modification is friendly and not intimidating to non-web developers. From my experience it isn't easy to screw up and take down the whole site while in editing the content.

Cons: I don't like that you need a web developer if you want to add another module or update the site. Also, some marketing firms won't work with Drupal sites and only work with competing CMS platforms.

Pros: Drupal is probably one of the most powerful CMS systems and stands up against the likes of Wordpress and Joomla. I like the community support that comes with Drupal and have used it to solve any query I've had. It's also hosted by many hosting companies which makes it easy to get up and running.

Cons: It's not a CMS that I would recommend for a beginner. I think to get the most out of it you'd need some moderate experience and skills in HTML, PHP and Javascript. I find the back end quite hard to use and navigate around.

Pros: Drupal is a powerful website development and CMS tool. It allows you to build a beautiful and custom website and customize the backend for the admins so that it is easy for managers to update.

Cons: If you do not use best practices in building the structure of the admin of the website it can be frustrating for the content management team to use if the content is not properly exposed in the admin.

Pros: Druapl is a CMS that allows the developer to do anything they could want, provided they have the know-how and the time to build it. Plugins are often open-ended enough to allow for developers to plugin into them and continue building until the feature they are looking for is completed. There is incredible value here - while it is free, more premium plugins cost money. The user-base also serves as technical support - plugins are built by users and so they are also maintained and supported by those users. This means that there is a wide range of plugins and people to provide support if you run into an issue.

Despite any shortcomings, I do love the product a lot. It's optimistic in the way its' built - very few software let you just have the ability to do anything with it these days. This is still one of those products, and so it should be commended for it.

Cons: This is NOT for somebody who wants to build their first website. This is a developer's platform, and some of the ways things are done in Drupal makes it very difficult to just get off the group and build out a website. I mention above the word "Developer" a lot, and that's who this product is really for. If I am aiming this review towards the general public, I would take the ease of use down to 2 or even 1 star for them - it's just not something you should do if you don't have experience building in it. Hire somebody.

The other side of the coin in having a wide range of plugins means that there are a lot that are not very good, or are not maintained. They become a security liability. The fact that these plugins are maintained by users also means that there is nobody making sure that the maintainer keeps the plugin working, which can really wreck how a site functions.

Comments: If you want a higher tech and more capable website, this is great. For something simple, I'd stick to Squarespace.

Pros: It's highly organized, has a lot of capabilities, has higher end features for loading that give it a unique spin beyond what Wordpress or Squarespace can do.

Cons: Not intuitive whatsoever. A lot of configuration and placement have to be done manually versus a drag and drop feature.

Comments: It can be anything you need, from a intranet project to keep a log of what it´s done and need to be done, to complete websites with integrated galleries and so on. We run it for many purposes and recommend it to everyone.

Pros: The main advantage of Drupal is it´s flexibility and easy integration with other platforms. It can be used just as a blogger platform, as it can also scale to a full blown website, integrated with customer support, or it can be a Hotspot page where your clients can sign up to gain access to the internet.

Cons: Not so easy to configure. I don´t mean installation, as it´s easy to install, but you need to configure it well after so you don´t run risks (just as any other platform would be).

Pros: Drupal is a new tool for me. I have been working with other similar CMS and I have been able to realize that what I like most about this is that it serves better to work the user roles. This has facilitated many things in the projects we have done with this tool lately.

Cons: There is a difference that I have noticed and is that when uploading content with this tool there are many variables that can be changed, I think there are some that are not so necessary and that can confuse the editors, it is possible that they remain alone for the administrators.

Overall: The best benefits we have obtained with the tool is that it is very easy to use and facilitates the management of user roles, which for other CMS is not so good.

Pros: Drupal is not the solution you go to if you want to quickly put out a simple website. It IS the solution you want if you need a website that will scale, if you need robust features, if you care about security, and if you don't really mind getting your hands a little dirty. A lot of things are really more complicated than they need to be compared to Wordpress, but unlike Wordpress, you can accomplish so much more with Drupal with the right modules and a little customization know-how.

Cons: Complexity. If you're just starting out with Drupal, you can easily find yourself using 5 modules to do something one module can do, which leads to a more bloated install as you add more features to your site. Knowing how to keep the site lean has performance and security advantages because you don't have to have so many modules to keep in line and updated.

Overall: We rely on drupal to run our websites.

Pros: I like that there is a strong community support system of developers and programmers for this content management system. When looking for a module to use for whatever function you need, it's best to use that developer community and check out the reviews. The other thing to watch for is when it was last updated or modified. If it's a frequently updated or modified module, that should mean that people are using it and it is well maintained.

Pros: Drupal is super flexible and can be adapted to so many CMS needs. I love that it's open-source, and of course I love the price. I haven't tested its robustness because my needs are small compared to some other users, but I take comfort in knowing it's robust enough for enterprise and government use.

Cons: Takes some commitment to get off the ground. There is decent support to be found online, but the downside of so much flexibility is figuring out how to configure/design things best for your needs. The learning curve also has also made it harder to collaborate with colleagues who aren't willing or able to figure it out.

Pros: The community (which I marked as Customer Support) is very active and large. Open-source can (potentially) lower TCO for small and medium companies with smaller digital footprint. Easy to extend platform with a rich and often mature library of community modules.

Cons: While it is getting better and some modules offer improvements, Drupal continues to be one of the most difficult CMS systems to get setup and configured for scalable, multi-site needs. Being open-source can provide smaller organizations with a much lower TCO, but larger enterprises should carefully evaluate the long-term TCO especially in configurations that need to scale. Recommended to look into some PAAS players like Acquia and Pantheon for more enterprise needs.

Overall: Drupal was ultimately not a good fit for us.

Pros: Being a developer its hard not to love Drupal -- with their recent update to Drupal 8 and moving to a Symfony2 backend and Twig templating system, its become bulletproof. Also, Composer is now built in to manage dependencies. The developer community is incredible and all modules are peer-reviewed by the community. This way you know the code you are getting is safe and sound unlike competitors...*cough*wordpress*cough*

Cons: The migration from Drupal 7 to Drupal 8 may be hard for some developers to swallow. A lot has changed, but almost all for the better. Drupal 8 modules are still a bit slow to be ported from Drupal 7.

Pros: Drupal is a powerful web developing platform with a large, global community of people and companies using it, developing for it and improving it. It's used to build websites that you probably consult every day. It's flexible and scalable.

Cons: The negative flipside of Drupal's power and flexibility is that it is still many steps behind Wordpress in terms of ease of use and value for money. My nonprofit sunk thousands of dollars into a Drupal site that didn't do everything we wanted it to do and which we ultimately could no longer afford to maintain given the high fees charged by Drupal developers who are in great demand. That's not to say that Drupal won't meet your needs. My advice is simply that you do your homework before going the Drupal route including an assessment of the staff and financial resources you have to maintain/upgrade the site once it has been built.

Pros: The best part about Drupal is that you can do anything and the best functionality is either in Drupal core or a free module at Drupal.org. There is a misconception that the learning curve is difficult. In comparison, achieving the basic needs of a brochure website are the same in all of the top CMS solutions. Aside from comparisons, the best tool within Drupal is Views. You can create lists and grids of data that can then be sorted, filtered, and altered in so many ways without adding any additional modules. Of course you can extend views and provide even better data lists or different view types but the ability to display and work with items that reside in the system is unlike any other system.

Cons: With so many options available to you, the learning curve comes with learning how to best use the best module for the job. There may be 5-10 modules that achieve a result, but in the end, there may only be one module that does it exactly how you want it. So the complexity is in the trial and error of having multiple options. So you may waste time working through the complexities of a module and realize that was not the main intent of the module or it doesn't quite do everything you wanted. This is worth it to me though as I will then be able to understand how different modules can be used in different ways to perform different functions.

Pros: Open Source GPL v2.0 or later = no license fees, ever. That's hard to beat, but the fact is that it's the better solution (even if it wasn't free). I've used it before, constantly revisiting; hoping it could be what 8.4.x is now.

Know that "Enterprise Level Security" doesn't make it bulletproof, but that there are scores of highly skilled folks constantly pouring over every aspect of this software, with each component required to complete stringent testing before it gets a pass -- using experimental modules 'n such can reduce these benefits, soOo... do your homework.

Biggest Pro? It isn't Wordpress.

If properly installed and maintained, it's one of the best possible solutions. That's why so many government agencies, or even governments themselves, have built upon Drupal.

I have 500+ active domains, and have used Drupal 100+ times or more. It's been our best choice, in most cases.

Cons: Documentation is sorta thin, which is often the case with major releases of open source software solutions, but it isn't that difficult to find answers: People often answer others that have encountered similar problems.

The 'steep learning curve' isn't such a hard climb, since there are countless videos and tutorials out there... it's easily worth the trouble, even if you have no background in programming of web development.

Installation could be made far simpler (e.g. the 'trusted host configuration' should be set up by the installer itself). But, it is hard to complain when -- sorta ashamed that I haven't put in the hours it takes to affect these changes I'd like to see.

Manual (and frequent) updates are a bit of a pain, but it sure beats software that isn't being so actively developed as to require updates. Or, worse still, have nobody watching what the others offer as plug-in.

Again: It's hard to complain without having put in nearly the time that countless others have (we all oughta give back, when/where we can ~;-)

Overall: Peace of mind, in regard to security.

With a bit of customization, it makes managing web development projects much simpler and more productive.

Releases like Thunder and Lightning hold the potential to become ever-better 'jump starts' toward the ideal CMS for publishing collaboratively.

Pros: You can build almost anything with Drupal. The flexibility and scalability of it outperforms other well known CMS solutions such as WordPress. The quality control in place for submitted modules (aka plug-ins in WP) and themes means that you don't have worry about hidden malicious code. The Drupal community give so much and ask for so little in return.

Cons: The out-of-the-box UI isn't as user friendly as WordPress and it isn't as quick and easy to setup as WP. There isn't as much variety of modules and themes available for Drupal as compared to WP. Becoming a Drupal developer means you will have a larger learning curve BUT you'll also have a far more powerful "tool-belt" at the end of the day.

Overall: I've been building website with Drupal for about 8 years and it allowed me to deliver websites that I would not have been able to code from scratch.

Pros: Once understood, Drupal is a very powerful and capable content management system. There are plenty of existing modules and themes to assist you with your website build making customisation easy.

Cons: Drupal is not as user-friendly to setup and develop in as a content management system like WordPress. There is a steeper learning curve before you can really get the most out of this platform.

Pros: It's very flexible and customizable. In web development, you want to be able to customize and create according to your (or your client's) needs, and Drupal will help you do that, but you have to know what you're doing. It's system of modules allows you to add functions and customize accordingly.

Cons: It's complicated. Like most web development software meant for someone who actually knows code, Drupal is a complex system and requires lots of code knowledge. And every few years, your Drupal update will require quite a bit of work to update.

Overall: Again, the customization is king. Drupal helps developers create exactly what they want rather than trying to build from a template.

Pros: Drupal has seven main Pros: 1) It's uses a very flexible system of modules. You can use Drupal modules to add new features to your site. For example, the Membership module lets you add member based services, the Video modules lets you host video clips, while the Commerce module lets you add shopping features. Each modules is made up of smaller modules, which ensures you only activate the bits you need for your project. Best of all, you can mix and match the modules to create things the original module designers might have never considered. For example, combine the Commerce, Membership and Video modules to create a paid for membership site of training videos. 2) It's very layered. In Drupal, system code lives in one layer, code to do with appearance (e.g. CSS, HTML) lives in another separate layer and custom modifications live in another separate layer. This makes it very easy to change things. For example, you can change the entire layout of your site without having to modify the original content to adapt to it. 3) It's free Remarkably, the core technology and all these modules are available for free. There are some themes that you have to pay for if you want to change the look of your site, but you can make your own themes and there are number of free themes as well. 4) Great user support Drupal has a good support network of dedicated and helpful users who are willing to provide plenty of free help. There's also free training videos on YouTube. 5) Plenty of updates Drupal releases minor updates on a monthly basis which address any of bugs or security concerns that crop up. There are also major updates every 2-3 years, which radically change the functionality of the core system. 6) Portable code Most code can easily be transferred between sites. Hence, if you create a function on one site, you can move it to another without having to re-do it all from scratch. 7) Don¿t need strong coding skills Drupal's module system means you can easily achieve a lot without needing to know how to code. It might not look and function exactly as you want, but it will be a decent effort.

Cons: Drupal has 2 main set backs: 1) It can get very complicated The down side of all the flexibility, is that there are often 10 ways to do one thing in Drupal and it's not always clear which method is best. Often the only way you can find out is through experience. Which means your early Drupal projects might not be as good as they could be, as you cut your teeth on learning which methods are best for you. 2) Your code won¿t last forever. Every 2-3 years, Drupal releases a new major update which radically changes the functionality of the site. The plus side of this is that it makes Drupal better. The downside is that you will often have to completely re-write your custom code. Because these major updates change everything, you will often need to install new modules to replace old ones. Essentially you have to rebuild your site (thankfully all the content can be transferred over). Upgrading isn't a requirement. But after a couple of years, the older versions of Drupal are no longer supported. So if building a Drupal site, expect to redo it from scratch it in 3-5 years. Hence, it's not really good for projects which only have a budget for minor changes each year.

Pros: Drupal provides a lot of advanced functions for users to build their own website with full control. Since it is open-source based, users can look for support worldwide without being forced to ask for support from a specific vendor.

Cons: Drupal should provide certification for experienced developers. So that site owners can easily find qualified developers to develop or maintain their site if needed.

Pros: Site is tight and secure and functions fabulously. Have had very minimal problems in 1.5 years the site has been live. I would recommend this product but expect a steep learning curve if you are not experienced. I hear Drupal 8 is much more user friendly for developing.

Cons: Steep learning curve for someone without experience. As a graphic designer I had a challenging time learning how to get the site set up.

Overall: Low cost. Very secure. Open source so problems get solved.

Overall: I have been using Drupal for websites I have been working with for years, since version 4.

Drupal is a very flexible and powerful CMS, with tons of module for everything (from credit card management to spam detection), also with a big marketplace of themes to quick launch nice websites.

The community of developers is huge, so it is easy to have a Drupal expert nearby to help you with a new website or the development of a module if that is not already existing on the marketplace.

Recommendations to other buyers: Rely on the community of developers, they're passionate and highly skilled
