CMS Drupal

Drupal agency with vision

Specialized Drupal developers for your software project

Drupal is an Open Source CMS (Content Management System) based on the PHP language and the Symfony framework. The CMS is particularly suitable for enterprise projects with a focus on content, e.g. portals, community websites and corporate websites with many users. The special feature of Drupal is that the content can be ordered by so-called taxonomies. Taxonomies are comparable with keywords or tags. They can be used to filter content and thus, detached from the classic hierarchy, displayed flexibly in the frontend. So on you can easily avoid content that occurs more than once by using content in different contexts.

Drupal itself is a mature system with a long history, it was released in 2001 and is used by many well-known websites. For example newspaper publishers, the White House, and the Harvard University.

We, the Webrunners, as a Drupal agency, implemented the first major projects already in 2008 and have used it in the past uch frequented websites and web applications. Because of the system’s good scaling capabilities we never had to struggle with performance problems.

Strengths Drupal

  • From our experience, Drupal, originally intended as a blog system, shows its strengths in user interaction. So if you want many site visitors to have their own access, interact with each other, contribute content or comment on other content, Drupal is certainly not a bad choice. Community is very important here.
  • Another argument to choose Drupal might be a lot of content that should be organized as a "loose-leaf collection" instead of organizing it hierarchically. By tagging them with keywords, they remain easy to find. The keywording of content can also be perfectly used in search engine optimization (SEO) and can be further enhanced by additional modules.
  • Drupal can also score pointsfi the backend h,.e. the administrative area of the application, , has special demands. The backend can be individually adapted to different needs.
  • The modular structure of the system has led to an enormous number of freely available modules being developed for the originally very lean core system. The solution for many requirements or problems can usually already be found in this pool of over 44,000 modules. In addition to the modules, there are also a large number of templates that can be used freely or purchased, unless you want to implement your own layout.

Weaknesses Drupal

  • minus Software must be updated continuously. This is not only true for Drupal, but the Drupal developers and community react especially fast to detected security holes and offer fixes quickly. Shortly afterwards the reason for the fix is published, so everyone can see what the vulnerability was. As it motivates the manufacturers and system operators to plug security holes promptly and keep the installations up to date, this procedure is generally accepted among security experts for other systems as well. However, since the security holes are publicly presented and therefore generally known, this leads to systems being more vulnerable unless security updates have been installed in a timely manner.
