Drupal is a powerful web interface that can be used to build any type of web application. It will help you to structure, organize and manage unlimited content. Here are some reasons to choose Drupal as your CMS:
I'll fully admit Drupal has one crappy user administration interface. And, since I get quite a few of the "can you find info about this user?" requests, which take so little time I can't bill for them :), I've expanded on the Drupal Post installation support question:
Search for username in Users list?
and created a custom view to help out my customers.
In the better late than never, I've finally gotten around to publishing it . . .
Programming requires ingenuity and talent. And even more importantly, successful bug-free code requires detail-oriented coders and brilliant peers for testing, innovating, and refinement. Drupal is a content management system (CMS) designed specifically for collaboration and creativity. A core batch of modules and themes can be downloaded free to get first-time designers started. A community of volunteer developers are constantly contributing more code and content to Drupal.
What is Drupal?
Drupal - a free content management system and open source code. Under the management of Drupal, millions of websites operate worldwide. Drupal has a wide range of applications, from creating personal microblogging, to creating corporate multi-dimensional websites. Thousands of expansion modules and the themes for Drupal allows you to create any site you can imagine.
Has your business used a Content Management System (CMS) like Wordpress or Joomla? Have you wondered if there is a way to improve? Luckily, a standout in the CMS field exists, one of the most adaptable and utilitarian CMSs, it is Drupal! It has a capable blend of existing business functions and broad expandability.
You want to build a website and you done enough research on the various CMSes available to have decided on Drupal. You've also done a write up of your site's needs, but you're not sure of the Drupal way or where you should start? The hundreds of upfront hours for reading and learning Drupal just to known which modules and feature sets are most appropriate for your specific use case causing you anxiety? Want to shortcut some of that headache?
Partnership going bad?, domain being held hostage?, your hosting company an unspeakable word?, no matter what your reason, I'll make an emergency backup of your Drupal site and copy the tarballs to wherever you want .
To be able to do this, I will need one of these accesses (in order of easiest to hardest):
I have a barebones testing VPS, which, as they are insanely cheap, I think everyone should have one. True, these aren't really usable by retail website owners, but if you're in IT and take QA seriously they're wonderful.
The one big issue with these are having to rebuild them from scratch when you want to try a different set of software packages that will emulate a clean production build and configuration. The solution was relatively easy, but the journey was a pita.
SolusVM's Central Backup seemed to be the ideal solution, but, it's not:
Clients!? Clients are wonderful things. They pay the bills. But they definitely ask you for some odd things.
I have a client who needed 10s of thousands of images, from different sources, to be displayed by the date they were taken. As he didn't want to spend hours in his favorite image editor, checking the properties of each file one by one, he punted the whole thing to me with a: "Hey, take these images, and add them to the gallery and make sure they display by date."
As it's my business to make clients happy, my reply, "Sure. I'll have that for you in a few days."
