Is Drupal the right choice for you?
Choosing the right CMS for your digital project is a big decision. We’ve been working with Drupal for over a decade and have seen what it’s capable of again and again, however with every technology it’s important to make sure you have a balanced view of its strengths and weaknesses.
Here are some of the Drupal features that differentiate it from other platforms:
Efficient Content Management
Drupal’s core system offers extensive tools for creating, organising, and displaying a wide variety of content types. Its taxonomy system is exceptionally powerful, supporting the creation of complex content architectures, which can significantly boost website organisation and searchability.
Advanced User Roles and Permissions
Drupal shines when it comes to user management, offering robust roles and permissions functionalities out of the box. It’s well-suited to sites that need granular access controls for various user groups and contributors, providing comprehensive and detailed control over who can see and do what on your website.
Dedicated Developer Community
Although it may not have the sheer numbers of WordPress, Drupal’s developer community is dedicated and active. This ensures continuous platform improvement and a rich ecosystem of modules (Drupal’s term for plugins) to extend your site’s functionality.
However, there are also solid reasons to consider alternatives to Drupal:
Steep Learning Curve
Drupal has a steeper learning curve than WordPress, and its robust features and flexibility come with complexity that can be overwhelming for beginners or for those who are used to simpler, more intuitive interfaces. Effective use of Drupal often requires greater technical expertise.
Out of the box, Drupal can be resource-intensive and might not perform as efficiently on shared hosting environments, compared to other CMS. To achieve optimal performance, fine-tuning Drupal settings and server setup are often necessary, which may require more advanced technical skills.
Theme and Layout Control
Drupal’s selection of ready-made themes may not be as extensive, and achieving certain layouts might require more custom development. CMS alternatives like Contao or WordPress boast a more flexible layout structure, allowing for custom layouts on a per-page basis, which can make the design process smoother and less technical.
We’re here to provide our clients an unbiased, informed opinion to help them choose the best software for their digital project.

Common questions to us as
a Drupal agency
The Drupal Module Directory is a collection of thousands of modules that can extend the functionality of a Drupal site. These modules offer everything from SEO tools and social media integration to sophisticated content management capabilities, providing extensive customisation options to Drupal users.
Indeed, Drupal is recognised for its commitment to security and has a dedicated security team who continuously work on patches and updates. Nonetheless, as with any CMS, security also depends on how it’s configured and maintained, such as keeping Drupal and its modules updated and following best security practices.
Absolutely! Drupal excels when it comes to larger projects. Its robust features and scalability make it ideal for complex websites with high traffic volumes. Numerous global organisations and large businesses use Drupal for their digital platforms.
While Drupal has a reputation for handling complex and high-traffic websites, it’s also suitable for smaller projects. Drupal’s flexible and scalable nature allows it to power diverse web projects, from blogs and small business sites to e-commerce platforms and large corporate websites. Its adaptability is anchored in its robust core capabilities and wide range of modules.
The cost of a Drupal website can range significantly based on the complexity of the project, the design and functionality required, and of course, the strategy and expertise of the development team. While Drupal itself is free, associated costs can include hosting, domain, modules, custom development, and maintenance.
Drupal may initially seem complex due to its sophisticated features, but it provides a highly customizable and powerful system once familiarised. Its admin area may have a steeper learning curve compared to some other CMS platforms, but its flexibility is an asset. Furthermore, the Drupal community provides an extensive array of online resources and support for new users, making the management of a Drupal website increasingly efficient with time.
