WordPress FTW!

2019-02-12

Pros

WordPress is efficient, and it has evolved dramatically over the past few years allowing developers to build and scale better than ever before. Companies and organizations love WordPress as it allows for so many customizations, but still an intuitive UI that they can navigate through.

Cons

Sometimes WordPress performance is slower than desired when compared to Drupal.

Powerful Tool To Get Websites Up And Running

2018-12-14

Pros

Wordpress allows you to get a site setup quickly. There is plenty of documentation on the web and on Wordpress' site to get you started. There is a lot of functionality that comes right out of the box with Wordpress that cuts down on development time significantly.

Cons

Wordpress doe not scale very well for large traffic sites as well as Drupal.

Love using WordPress for web design

2018-12-09

Great experience. I took a few classes to get the basics and everything else is pretty intuitive to learn.

Pros

I like that WordPress is a content management software, which means all my content is dynamic and can be used in many different places, as compared to designing in static HTML. It’s easy to use and organize pages, posts, and products.

Cons

This is my first CMS so I don’t have much to compare with drupal or Joomla or Drupal.

Create websites in minutes.

2018-12-17

It's really much better than the available alternatives i.e. Drupal and Joomla.

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.

The best CMS solution

2018-08-28

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

I wish the fields API was more of a first class citizen like Drupal.

I love how user-friendly and easy WordPress is, but it sometimes almost too simplified

2018-05-24

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

Pros

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.

Single Platform for all Business Portals

2018-08-28

I have used Joomla CMS for new portal, Pligg, Drupal but eventually WordPress was the one which had great community support and hence remained my first choice.

Pros

Support and Huge user-base is the most awesome thing about WordPress. Started using it as blogging platform some 11 years ago but now I use it extensively as a platform for web magazine, Shopping cart (thanks for WooCommerce) and Product website. I am no developer but still able to deploy and use it without any hassle. Even slight modifications can be implemented with ease thanks to responsive community support.

Cons

I cannot even think of any. WordPress has come a long way becoming the most powerful CMS I've ever known.

WordPress is THE platform for websites.

2018-12-04

We've built dozens of websites for clients on WordPress, Drupal, Wix, html and Squarespace...

Pros

The level of customization coupled with ease of use for non-developers puts WordPress above other template based platforms or more development friendly platforms. Easy to use for all levels of editors.

Cons

Occasionally a plugin will become outdated or break a site... pretty easy to revert back to before the break and fix but that's my only con.

WordPress for me

2018-10-31

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

Better than Previous CMS

2018-02-20

Free and less stressful compared to the previous CMS

Pros

It is easy to use compared to the previous CMS - Drupal. There should be more functionalities that I have not tested out because the development is done by our website agency.

Cons

We use Ninja Form for the web form but the countries are spelled out too long. For example, Britain is United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. While it must be an official name, they should list it in a common way.

High # of leads

Pros

I wp ups never go back to the good old drupal.

Cons

Wordpress has continuous updates that must be kept up with. You have to manually do it and then go through a manual update of your theme and plugins so that it doesn't brake anything on the site.

The best content managing system out there

2018-08-28

Its so much better than Joomla or Drupal. Wordpress sites are alot more secure with its regular updates.

Pros

It has everything you need for a website that works for you. So easy to create blog posts or new pages and add images/videos to them. There are loads of themes and plugins to choose from so you can alter the design or functionally to suite your needs.

Cons

There is so many themes, plugins, features it can be a bit overwhelming for normal users and they wouldn't know where to start.

Best CMS for a content heavy site

2018-09-06

Wordpress has enabled my company to utilize our content better than Drupal ever let us.

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.

Most user-friendly and robust CMS out there

2019-04-07

My agency uses Wordpress exclusively and we've only heard clients rave about it, particularly when compared to their prior CMS system. I've used it myself at two jobs and the experience is unparalleled.

Pros

It is far more user-friendly than Drupal and the flexibility it offers for custom fields and plugins beats most any other CMS out there.

Cons

I have very few complaints, beyond some issues I've had with plugins, which are usually developed outside of Wordpress and can be hit or miss.

A Simple Friendly Website Builder

2019-03-27

I have used many other platforms, Joomla, Drupal and Magento.

Pros

Wordpress is a great way to start a simple site. It allows you to easily add pages and choose themes or templates that are free or you can use premium themes to jazz up your store. You can find any theme that fit your personal or business image. You can add images, videos, and use plugins to give you more flexibility. Wordpress allows me to create a blog. The blog allows me to keep daily, weekly or post monthly entries about the latest promotions to my store. I even built a customizable ecommerce beauty shopping store. I have been using Wordpress for about seven years and I love it!

Cons

Wordpress is an open source platform. Open source means it is free to use. However, because the platform is free. There is limited phone support. Typically you will have to rely on the support of the community to help get your questions answered. I think if there was more support many people would use it.

Still the best CMS on the market

2018-05-23

It is unbeatable in comparison with its competitors (Joomla, Drupal). I would even suggest that it is better than some of its paid competitors, such as Squarespace and Wix.

Pros

The most useful feature of Wordpress still -in my humble opinion- is its versatility. You could install a template theme and build a simple website in seconds, or create an IMS or a digital ecosystem without any hustles (or maybe some triggers to help you coordinate third-party software)

Cons

It has not any features yet to customize the CSS file without having to code. That would make it easier for non-coder users. Also, Wordpress has been under the fire lately for not having better security features and being susceptible to attacks.

Great Product for Almost Any Website

2019-01-08

After using both Drupal and Wordpress, Wordpress is hands-down a better platform for everything I've tried to use it for.

Pros

The sheer volume of plugins makes it an extremely flexible platform. The ability to enable, disable, and update these easily also makes it a very robust product. The abundance of Wordpress themes also means that your ability to customize the interface is limitless.

Cons

If you're going to use a hosting provider, it's probably very easy to setup. For a self-hosted environment, it's a little more complicated. Having said that, if you're going to self-host you should expect it to be somewhat involved.

Used wordpress for years and switched to another platform because wordpress is unstable

2018-11-15

Used it for a long time and after losing many of my sites and clients sites, I switched to developing on drupal and will never go back to using wordpress.

Pros

I liked that it took very little time to make a nice looking site that was fairly decent for SEO.

Cons

Because of the way wordpress is built, you never know when your site is going to self destruct. Not running updates left you open to massive security vulnerabilities, while running updates was a 50/50 chance of destroying your site.

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

2017-02-25

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)

My favorite CMS

2018-08-09

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.

Not of much use for freelancers and small businesses

2018-06-19

While appreciating the sophistication of this CMS, Drupal was of no use as I could get better and faster result working with WordPress. Security breach is never a big issue for me to be honest.

Pros

I understand this software comes with the best security features, so important for projects that are sensitive to be hacked while working in groups or communities.

Cons

For freelancers and small businesses, why not use WordPress (or even Joomla) that is so easy to use and yet get the same or even better result!

My preferred website builder

2018-09-25

We built our second iteration of our website with Drupal, after being on Wordpress. I've since worked with the latest Wordpress again and I really prefer Drupal.

Pros

THe flexibility of Drupal while it is still user-friendly wins every time. Other sitebuilders like WP and Webflow are extremely feature rich, but harder to use day-to-day. Simpler builders like Wix and Squarespace are great for newbies, but not as flexible. Drupal floats that line so anyone can use it but experts can make so much more of it. And it's free!

Cons

Image sizing did kind of limit us with our blogs - there were strict requirements on aspect ratio that I didn't find very helpful. However, that may have since been resolved or a limitation we placed on ourselves for consistency.

Another Open Source CMS

2018-05-29

Pros

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.

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.

Please dont use this anymore

2019-02-19

This is not great for website creations anymore

Pros

It is a better version of Wordpress, and helps you develop websites faster than starting from scratch and needing to learn a lot of code.

Cons

This is old! No one uses this anymore. Also php is dead! Everyone should move on

The standard that needs an update

2017-12-09

Pros

It is a standard layout, similar to wordpress, that makes Drupal intuitive.

Cons

The process to do certain things is very unintuitive and there are no tooltips to help you along the way. Often I get stuck trying to d a basic thing and have to ask someone for help-only for them to explain that I've completely misunderstood how this other type of content or section functions. Why can't they all function the same way?

Flexible but tough for beginners platform

2018-12-30

Pros

I like Drupal because it offers a huge number of additional functions, including content management, a visually appealing interface, easy navigation, and search engine optimization.

Cons

In comparison with WordPress, a smaller number of plug-ins has been developed for this engine.

Free Open Source CMS, Powerful and complex

2018-08-08

Pros

Drupal allows you to relate pages and custom objects together to create very dynamic pages. It's the kind of CMS you want if you manage a lot of different pages that link together. It had great multilingual support and is very stable. It's clean and after some training it's not too difficult to use.

Cons

Overall I think the learning curve for Drupal is much steeper than something more simple like Wordpress, but of course you tend to get more advanced functionality with that added complexity.

Difficult to set up, go with Wordpress instead

2018-11-13

Pros

At the time I remember it being more difficult to use than Wordpress, but more user friendly than Joomla.

Cons

Difficult to set up. Not a large user base, but larger than Joomla I believe (going off of how easy it was to get questions answered when I ran into issues).

Extremely powerful open source CMS

2019-04-22

If you need powerful roles and permissions this is the only choice. This is coming from a .NET developer.

Pros

Once I got comfortable using Drupal I'm very impressed. The security and flexibility are second to none. I haven't made the switch to Drupal 8 (and I hear it's very different) but I look forward to learning it.

Cons

But same can be said for WordPress. The learning curve was a bit steep as well.

Powerful CMS with excellent customer support

2018-12-06

Pros

The Drupal platform has a clear interface in which we initially just had to navigate. Differs in high stability. The support service actively helps to cope with the difficulties encountered.

Cons

For CMS Drupal, it is an order of magnitude harder to find quality themes than for Joomla or Wordpress. It takes a lot of time and effort to bring the appearance to a normal state.

Very powerful, with an involved development process

2017-10-17

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.

I work for a Drupal web development shop

2018-04-24

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

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.
