It’s no secret that WordPress is my go-to for content management system driven web sites. It’s free. It’s mature and it’s got a huge community both in terms of support and in its plugins library. There’s no need to re-invent the wheel most of the time.
That being said, from time to time there are clients who aren’t WordPress fans, or are already invested in another CMS environment. Drupal, while different is probably my second favorite. It’s got more of a learning curve, but has its own advantages, especially when you’ve been able to get deep into it.
In the past though, I’ve always found the ability to extend it lacking compared to WordPress — without having to roll your own solution. Plugins that are default installs for every WordPress-based site we build like Advanced Custom Fields, Yoast SEO, etc. in the past didn’t always have a direct correlation in the Drupal world.
This morning, doing some research for a RFI we received, I stumbled upon the article below, giving a nice writeup of Drupal functionality match-ups to WordPress. It’s a good read and resource.
