Drupal is a highly scalable and flexible open source content management system (CMS) for creating and maintaining everything from small and simple blogs to large and complex websites. With thousands of premium and free modules and themes, Drupal can be customised to meet the needs of a variety of different websites.
Drupal is used by hundreds of thousands of individuals, businesses, and organisation, and it has a large and active community of users. A lot of users may find Drupal has a steeper learning curve than WordPress or Joomla, which means it's not the ideal content management system for people without technical knowledge who want to quickly create a brochure site or blog. However, a lot of Drupal's fans are people with extensive coding experience who are able to take full advantage of its flexibility and power, making it a great application for serious developers.
If you need some help using Drupal, their extensive documentation, community chat, online and local groups, and official forum are all excellent resources for inexperienced and advanced users. Are you still not sure if Drupal is the right content management system for your needs? Then check out some live sites powered by Drupal, including social networks, intranets, news organisations, and lots of other different types of websites.
At one time, it was nearly impossible to find a decent Drupal theme, so it still has a bit of a reputation for producing unattractive, but highly functional, sites. However, it's now nowhere near as difficult to find an attractive theme as it once was, which means there are lots of great free and premium Drupal themes to choose from. Drupal's official site is an excellent place to find free Drupal themes, and RocketTheme and ThemeForest offer loads of premium templates in a range of colours and styles.
In addition to templates, Drupal's official site is an excellent place to find free modules designed to help users add more functionality to their sites. These free modules can be used for statistics and analytics, security and access control, advertising and ecommerce, ratings and evaluations, and loads more!
