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: Easy tools to create content types and attach field to them, feature rich interface and WYSIWYG, media library and embed tools, new development OOP way in D8, Symfony components inside.

Cons: Sometime bugs in the core can stay for some time, needs to patch some modules for PostGreSQL, still some debug to do in modules in D8

Overall: Easy and scalable websites development faster than ever

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.

Pros: Very flexible

Cons: More difficult to configure than Wordpress (but also way more powerful)

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

Powerful CMS with enormous flexibility but an uncertain future

Comments: I've been using Drupal since version 5, in 2007, and I rely on it for approximately half the sites I manage. It's enormously powerful, can be customized in any conceivable manner, and offers a vast array of modules and themes, most free. This power and flexibility comes at the price of a complex codebase, however, which can be slow to render and subject to database corruption. Drupal also suffers from a fixed release structure with dramatic architectural changes between releases, meaning that updating heavily customized Drupal sites to new major versions is not much less involved than adopting a new CMS framework altogether.

Pros: You can do anything with Drupal. Some things are even easy: setting up a basic blog is trivial, plenty of options are available for turnkey themes, and many third-party modules exist to rapidly turn Drupal into a solid framework for everything from e-commerce to social media aggregation to academic collaboration. When it works, it works well, and caching modules exist for every version to defray some of the CPU overhead generated by its large codebase.

Cons: Drupal's development community has opted for a fixed rather than a rolling release structure, which means admins performing major version updates incur a steep upgrade penalty in terms of changes to add-on options, basic code, and theme engines. From version 6 to the new version 8, Drupal has changed virtually everything, and as a result, many deployed users linger on increasingly insecure older versions, while many module developers and third-party integration teams have abandoned Drupal altogether as a result of the ongoing investment necessary to stay abreast of codebase changes. Finally, Drupal's own documentation is fragmentary and often self-contradictory, which can make educating oneself extremely time-consuming.
