Re: [pxandpints] Does anyone actually use Drupal?

As an almost exclusive Silverstripe developer, I can say that especially with the new 3.0 version it is a framework with a CMS as a module on top of that. The Sapphire framework can be used independently. I have found Drupal myself to require so much clicking around to do simple things and overwhelming for clients.

Drupal is more than a "CMS" as we'd think of systems like WordPress and SilverStripe.

Drupal's creator once called Drupal "community plumbing" which is a term I really like.  I always find that if I need to build out a complex website, Drupal is a great starting point because it has a lot of the architecture work I need already built, or easy to add with plugins.  You could for example - setup a social network in Drupal in a few weeks - and could probably do it without any coding if you needed to.

Is Drupal the right tool for every project? Of course not.

Hi Michael,

Oh I understand it's powerful - I wouldn't disagree! It's really just not a personal favorite of mine. I have hacked my way through a few sites and seen some of what it can do on others.  Always interested to hear what developers think make one system stand out over others - what are some of the advantages to using Drupal?

Cheers,
Christina

Hi Christina,

My name is Robin Eldred and I'm the president of Apis. We're actually Drupal specialists, so perhaps we could be of assistance to your friend. Feel free to put me in touch with them if you like.

Hi collective awesomeness,

I have a friend who works with a non-profit that supports bereaved parents - they are building a new website in Drupal (um, let's just say it's not my personal favorite) and need an extra hand or two on board to make it happen by their timeline.  Not sure if this is a paid helping hand or volunteering helping hand - either way, if you or someone you know might be interested, let me know and I'll get you all connected. 

Thanks & happy long weekend!!

Cheers,
Christina
