5 major facts why word press is preferred over drupal in custom project

  1. 1. 5 Major Facts why WordPress is Preferred over Drupal in Custom Project SynapseIndia
  2. 2. Introduction Drupal and WordPress are two of the most famous content management systems (CMS) currently available. Both of them are widely used and have their own advantages and disadvantages. While Drupal managed to attract around 250,000 new websites in the last quarter, WordPress succeeded in attracting more than 5 million websites during the same time. In this presentation, we will discuss we will discuss why WordPress is ruling the roost and where Drupal is lagging in.
  3. 3. 1st - Number of Design Options WordPress allows its users to play with the design and test various combinations of designs, which is not so easy with Drupal. Due to the default fundamental architecture of the system, most Drupal websites have a common look and feel. The architecture of Drupal is not very flexible.
  4. 4. 2nd - Themes and Visual Appearance Compared to WordPress, developing themes for Drupal is harder. Also, the potential market for WordPress themes is much bigger than the Drupal themes. Therefore, it is beneficial for the designers to build themes for WordPress. If you want to develop a custom theme for your WordPress website or want to personalize an existing theme, you can easily find a theme designer.
  5. 5. 3rd - Availability of Developers Say, you are ready with the extra money that Drupal developers demand, but still you will have a hard time in finding a competent Drupal developer. The long learning curve and scarcity of opportunities are two major reasons that deter novice developers from choosing Drupal as their preferred CMS. As a result, Drupal developers are very hard to find compared to their WordPress counterparts.
  6. 6. 4th - Source Code Readability The source codes of the pages built with WordPress are much cleaner than those of Drupal. For instance, Drupal stores its ‘custom content type’ data in MySQL databases. Though Drupal provides an easier way of including custom content types, WordPress provides the users with lots of customization options.
  7. 7. 5th - Backward Compatibility Another important advantage of WordPress is its excellent backward compatibility. Quite surprisingly, Drupal has always ignored the backward compatibility in its major versions. If you have built a website with Drupal, then you will have to re- work on it when the next major version of the platform releases, which is not the case in WordPress.
  8. 8. Concluding Comments WordPress has grown to such a level that most of the companies have extensions for this platform. Therefore, users will be able to integrate their websites with other services easily. On the other hand, Drupal does not enjoy the facility of having so many plugins from various companies. If you want to integrate your Drupal website to an uncommon service, chances are that you have to build the plugin for this purpose.
