Pros

Great solution to build landing pages / small & big websites with low budget - but if you got the money the results will be amazing.
If you are a person who has many thoughts that you would like to publish or perhaps you like fashion and want to show that interest, then WorldPress is your best friend.
WordPress is really an amazing content management system, that allows you to build stunning and amazing websites within few hours.

Pros

I heard about CMS in the early 2000"s and in 2004 about Drupal. It's more powerful than other CMS, beacuse not so fancy but powerful, secure and stable.
The flexibility this provides to continue growing a web site makes it priceless. The community around the project is amazing and has provided excellent modules to get a site up and running easily.
Mostly modern CMS have amazing features with good bootstrapping themes that can easily be fit in. Need a one off editor like a visual studio to allow simple edits.

Cons

We've found ourselves stalled out badly with problems at times because a theme or plugin had terrible support.
The biggest problem with WordPress is the lack of understanding that it is a blog software.
As a result, I'm forced to disapprove and delete spam comments individually, and when you get hundreds of these kind of spam comments each week, you can imagine that it can be frustrating.

Cons

One being no visibility on the road map of the product that makes it difficult to take investment decisions and second is lack of customer support on the go.
Overall, my experience with Drupal was terrible.
Lack of development knowledge to the resources. It lacks in the marketing.

Pros

It is easiest to use. Almost no code is needed. Many templates are available for ready to use website creation. Maintaining posts is also very easy. Wordpress marketplace has so many plugin available from content management to payment gateway integrations. Almost all are just one click install.

Cons

Its not that flexible to use like Drupal. Creating customized hooks is little difficult. Also its purely based on php and security perspective, its not that secure compared to Drupal

Always been good and so much more logical than other CMS (i.e. Joomla & Drupal).

Pros

There is so much you can do with Wordpress - just need to ensure you get your web developer skills up to speed but so many add ons you can purchase if you don't have these skills.

Cons

It is getting better and blocks I think will make it easier for some end users. It can be quite daunting but most of my clients find it very user friendly once they give it the time and energy.

The best CMS solution

Reviewed 4 years ago

I love it. It's easy, development is fast, it's cost effective, and powerful. A joy to work with

Pros

This software is very easy to use, but also robust enough to accomplish bespoke and complex solutions. With the recent developments in WP's Api system and the Gutenberg Content blocks the future is bright. This is the first place I look when developing sites for clients.

Cons

Modeling content is difficult without plugins. I wish the fields API was more of a first class citizen like Drupal.

Ease use for less tech savy folks. Just about anyone can make a change to WordPress content.

User-friendly, I like that you can access the templates, php and css and other files in the CMS interface.

Cons

Having used a lot of other CMS, I found the support much less expansive and helpful as Drupal. I rarely ever run into a problem with Drupal that I can't find the answer to. Wordpress is a very story. I find the community & support system to be very different and a lot less helpful.

Create websites in minutes.

Reviewed 4 years ago

It's really much better than the available alternatives i.e. Drupal and Joomla. Plus we're also lil uncertain about the WP 5.2 version.

Pros

It's damn simple and easy create and launch your website. As we're business plan users so we also got free domain and SSL Cert. Secondly, as everything is cloud based so you need to waste money in hosting and creating backups.

Cons

With every update from Plugin or Theme there's a new conflict which is really disheartning for us. As there's no option with us except disabling all the plugins to check the issue or change the theme. Secondly, there's very limited scope of help being provided by the WP Support team.

Overall. WordPress is my choice for sites i am working with on a development or editing basis. I have also dabbled with drupal but not as much

Pros

I enjoy working with Wordpress. When i needed to spin up a web site quickly, i found that i was able to scan through many free Wordpress templates and modify one quickly. The are also many plug ins for word press to do just about anything.

Cons

Word Press is not as drag and drop as other web site editors. I think part of that is that it is built for the true design professional not the buisiness owner who is trying to quickly spin up a web site

Best CMS for a content heavy site

Reviewed 4 years ago

Wordpress has enabled my company to utilize our content better than Drupal ever let us. We have seen an increase in organic traffic and have been able to increase the number of conversions generated by mobile traffic.

Pros

As a digital marketer and web developing professional, I have found that Wordpress is the easiest yet flexible CMS I've used. I'm able to create a website, with either a custom or templatized looked, within a few hours. It is the ideal CMS to use when you're building a site for non-developer individuals as it can be built to have a block-like look on the backend and publishing a blog can take literally 5 minutes. The number of plugins available has grown tremendously over the past 5 years, enabling site owners to connect various 3rd party tools and change the look of their site without need to adapt the code.

Cons

While plugins offer a 'simple' way of changing the look of your site, you are much more limited in the design aspect than if you were to use a different CMS, like Drupal or Sitecore. If you're not contracting a web developer to build a custom template for you, you're also limited to the templates they offer ( or buying a template) and creating a website similar to other. While they are beefed up security within the last 2 years, it still have a while to go to meet the standards of other CMS platforms.

Wordpress is an easy to use CMS with a wide array of themes and plugins. Updates are easy and simple and a new user can be trained on basic task relatively easily.

Pros

Wordpress is easy to install and use. The dashboard makes navigating features easy. The plugin installer allows easy search and installation of new plugins to expand site features and functionality.

Cons

The biggest con is unlike Drupal where plugins are free many more advanced plugins cost money. However, because of this plugins work with updates easier and have more features and secure fixes.

Pros

Drupal is a good alternative to WordPress if you don't want to be one of the typical WordPress users. They offer quite a bit of variety and more custom code than WordPress as well.

Cons

Drupal is NOT user-friendly. Finding pages and stuffing content takes so much longer than necessary. There are also odd requirements on different modules that really don't seem necessary and only make is a longer process than it should be. Simple things like saving a page or going back to your previous page are borderline impossible. Overall, I would always choose WordPress if you are building it for a less than genius user.

A frustrating alternative to WordPress

Pros

As with WordPress, you can't beat the price - FREE. And, also as with WordPress, there's a devoted community of Drupal developers who work hard to keep it relevant.

Cons

Like WordPress, Drupal requires some coding skills. Unlike WordPress, if you lack said skills, you'll be quickly frustrated. Compared to WordPress, where there's massive 3rd party support with plugins and premium themes that make coding knowledge virtually unnecessary, Drupal is brutal to learn and difficult to use.

Great CMS platform, tons of modules, themes and experts to deploy it

Reviewed 6 years ago

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.

Pros

Very flexible Tons of themes and modules Available on managed cloud sites

Cons

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

Not necessarily for beginners but a good web platform once you learn it

Reviewed a year ago

I've been using it for several years and I like the platform. It just takes some time to learn it and you will want a smart developer available to help with deeper edits. This is probably the same for Wordpress though. Drupal seems to be a more serious platform if you have deeper business dev needs.

Pros

It's powerful and can do whatever you want. It just requires you to have a good developer. Fortunately, there are many out there.

Cons

It's not as simple as Wordpress. I am not sure if they plan to keep improving the backend editor, but I think Wordpress and the Visual Editors are a bit easier for web dev newbies.

Drupal the professional CMS for everybody

Reviewed 2 years ago

I made my first website in pure HTML in 1998. I heard about CMS in the early 2000"s and in 2004 about Drupal. It's more powerful than other CMS, beacuse not so fancy but powerful, secure and stable.

Pros

Drupal is a powerful, secure CMS for fast and secure websites. It is simple and easy to use - if you have a basic knowledge about HTML, SQL, etc.

Cons

Drupal is not as popular than WordPress, so there are less themes and features.

Drupal has a steep learning curve for sure but if you take the time to learn, the possibilities are endless. This is not for beginners.

Pros

It`s very versatile and powerful if you know what you`re doing.

Cons

There aren't nearly as many plugins, themes and resources as for other CMS such as WordPress.

The rival to Wordpress that does not want to win the fight

Reviewed 3 years ago

Drupal is very different. It tries and tries to be better than WP but nevertheless it is still the tool for the specific people who are fed up with WordPress and want to try anything but doing "another wordpress website"

Pros

I like the functionality Drupal offers and the different approach to things. It is a nice try and the features such as security and performance that come with drupal as well as the tool for multisites are amazing and they work very nicely.

Cons

Drupal is nowhere near being a beautiful tool. It is pretty hard to learn and not easy to customize. Partially because the shortage of new integrations and new developers joining the community. It's hard to fight wp, but I really like that drupal tries and I believe it will always will but will never get there due to its audience limitations.

My favorite CMS

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

Once I got to know this CMS and how it works, I loved it! I'm not web developer and Drupal has given the power to create more dynamic and robust websites. I have only once ran into a problem that couldn't find the answer in Drupal extensive support forum! It's amazing how everyone helps each other out with CMS. I have not seen any other CMS that has such a robust community of developers and support in the forums.

Cons

It works very differently from other CMSes and is more difficult to get familiarized with than Wordpress. If you need a very simple website, I would recommend WordPress. But if you need a more feature rich website, Drupal is well worth the time investment to learn it.
