Drupal

At Novisi, we play favorites, and our favorite CMS is Drupal. That is not to say we don't work with other content management systems, however with each successive release of Drupal, the chances shrink of us finding a need to use something else.

Drupal has quickly become a top open-source content management system (CMS) and content management framework (CMF). It is used as a platform for thousands of sites from whitehouse.gov to Soap Opera Digest.

The standard release of Drupal, contains a broad feature set including:

  • user account registration
  • user management tools
  • advanced permissions system
  • menu management
  • RSS-feed
  • page layout customization
  • system administration
  • user commenting
  • forums
  • blogs
  • multiple taxonomies
  • unlimited customizable content types

In addition to the core features, there are more than 11,000 community-contributed addons, known as contrib modules, available to alter and extend Drupal's core capabilities and add new features or customize Drupal's behavior and appearance.

When we find a feature missing which a client needs, Drupal's naturally extensible architecture provides us an excellent platform on which to build a custom module to meet any need.
