WordPress gets some very important things right, and their hold on this market is proof. There are 11.4 million active installations of WordPress software, compared to only hundreds of thousands of Drupal installations. We need to get our act together, raise our standards, and lower the barrier to entry.

Come join me in talking about what this community needs to do to ensure its survival. What should we really be focusing on in Drupal Core for D8? What should you do with your own modules to prevent our CMS from being abandoned in favor of something else?

    BIGGER and MORE does not mean better !!!
    Often a reduced number of e.g. modules which are highly maintained are better than thousands with buggy code. And often x modules do the same stuff.

    I just made a quickt install of WP3 and added some basic functions I am used to have in Drupal. The Backend get´s so crouded and I didn´t see any improvements on the UI since my last used 2.8 version. My future is Drupal but I will always keep an eye on the others like Joomla, Typo3, Wordpress etc.

  • banago Baki Goxhaj, Web Designer and Developer at WPlancer Great presentation. I love WordPress and it's the only CMS I'm using at the moment, but the Drupal7
    UX project seems very promising. Waiting for Drupal 7 to get out of the forge.

  • DougalCampbell Dougal Campbell, Web Developer at The Interwebnets I love how you make the points about the out-of-the-box usability of WordPress, and how it uses more accessible language and terms (categories and tags versus taxonomies, posts and pages versus nodes, etc).

    I've been pointing out to people that WordPress and Drupal are starting to converge to a similar feature set, but have arrived here from different directions. Drupal started with the underlying architecture, with building blocks for creating complex content interactions, and is working towards usability. WordPress started with making an easy-to-use tool for simple content use-cases, and is now working towards more complex content management.

    I'm tempted to make a 'Why WordPress Should Be More Like Drupal' presentation for the WP community. You guys have some fantastic infrastructure and build tools. Plus your underlying architecture lets you create awesome things like the Features module, which would be pretty much impossible to recreate in WordPress, at least to the extent of what it does in Drupal.
