Drupal CMS Review

  • July 15, 2021
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
Drupal has so many intricate configurations; it makes it easy to get the exact setup that you want from within the site's admin area.
What do you dislike?
The CMS is complex from an admin perspective. Managing content is relatively easy - but the vast configuration possibilities are not friendly for those who are not Drupal experts.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Drupal's configuration possibilities have allowed us to create a large, complex website suiting many different tiers of content editors.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
If you're looking for something easy to set up and simple for content managers to use, then Drupal isn't for you. But if you're looking for something that has limitless out-of-the-box configurations, then Drupal is exactly the CMS you need.

Easy CMS for Large Orgs

  • July 15, 2021
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
The ease with which you can use Drupal. Though there is absolutely a learning curve, as with everything, Drupal organizes things in a way that make it clear to the user.
What do you dislike?
For larger orgs, customization is always needed and therefore a web agency is needed to ensure that what the client needs can be built out in an intuitive and easy manner.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Content organization as well as ease of updates for the user. This allows users to quickly update content to ensure they are presenting what is needed to their clients.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Is this the right fit for your organization?
Do you have a strong agency to help support your needs?
What issues are you having with your current site and how can these be resolved with Drupal?
What hosting is needed?

Requires a competent developer, but more powerful than expected

  • July 15, 2021
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
There is nothing you can't do in Drupal. It is an excellent entry point into a true headless or decoupled application. Since the framework is built in a very modular fashion, it is effortless to add functionality without affecting other aspects of the system.
What do you dislike?
While the Drupal developer community is great overall, there is an influx of 'boot-camp developers' that understand just enough to get a job done but end up skewing standards and creating almost impossible to maintain systems. Since the system is very flexible, it is open to improper setup and architecture.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
I am building systems that allow a team of content editors and marketers to add pages with pre-built components easily. Editors look for an easy-to-understand interface and do not want to worry about writing code or figuring out new technologies. I have benefitted from changing architecture methodologies without having to rebuild everything from the ground up.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Consider using a seasoned professional to help set up your site

Drupal 7 - 9 Move

  • June 24, 2021
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
I like the security and option to add Arabic language.
What do you dislike?
The move from 7 to 9 is exceptionally costly and timed so poorly right after a pandemic when most organizations do not have the budgets to pay for a rebuild.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
No problems solved but it does get the job done!

Drupal is dynamic, but may be too complex for everyone's needs

  • June 22, 2021
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
Drupal is extendable and very dynamic. Content can be shown and displayed in many ways, just using what comes in the core product.

The open source community that supports the project is wonderful and there are many ways to extend the platform with FREE modules
What do you dislike?
Drupal can be difficult to learn between major versions.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We use Drupal for universities, multi sites, commerce, non-profits.

It allows the end users to enter their data seemlessly

An easy way for creating complex sites

  • April 30, 2021
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
with an easy way to set it up and deploy it, you can have complex web portals like CRM or an eCommerce website, huge community and themes available to use
What do you dislike?
hard to make custom updates need experience in development to be able to do it
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
It was for creating web portals for eCommerce applications and CRM applications. It was an easy way to start developing using it and deliver fast results.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
If the design of the web portal is straightforward with no need for complex changes, go ahead. If it needs heavy changes, please keep out as it is easier to implement it with other technologies than drupal and with much ease changing

Drupal is your go to CMS for complex portals and websites

  • April 29, 2021
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
Drupal is more than just a CMS. It is a true content management platform (emphasis on platform). To me, the difference with Drupal is its ability to manipulate the content and have dynamic content which is different than just a CMS. That is, It is more than just a system to render the data onto a webpage with stylesheets, but a complete platform that allows a developer to manupulate data dynamically and render it dynamically on a webpage. Many people will compare Wordpress with Drupal. To be fair, they both do 80% of the same thing, but the 20% is what makes the difference. Drupal allows a developer to control data input and output at a level that Wordpress does not. It is a lot like the difference between iOS (Apple Phone) and Android phone. They both allow to make calls but how that call is completed is different to a developer.
What do you dislike?
The fact that you can do so much in Drupal is also its downfault. To a non-developer, it is extremely difficult to use. There is a steep learning curve, and it is not very accessible (i.e. user-friendly) to most people. Given this issue though, a developer can make it more user-friendly so that anyone can author in the system. In fact, a Drupal developer can enable such things as a Gutenberg module, which is the same editor in WordPress; thus making authoring accessible to non-developers. However, you will need a developer to enable Gutenberg in the beginning which makes Drupal more challenging to use for the average user.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Drupal allows us to have a dynamic internal portal for communications and information in a large enterprise. Because of the amount of content managed, Drupal is the ideal platform because we can add recommendation engines, targeted content to specific users and dynamic content to the portal's functionality. Through having these functions, we can allow users to find content easier and also surface communications specific to each employee. We reduce the "spam" effect and make direct communications to employees more relevant.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
If you have a very complex site or content, Drupal is the CMS for you. You will need a development team to get the best use of Drupal. However, if you have a simple site that needs to be maintained, try looking at other CMS such as WordPress, etc.

Druapl review

  • April 29, 2021
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Drupal is very extensible, if you can think of it there is a way to make it happen with Drupal. The documentation is very thorough and understandable. Another one of its strengths is the community. There are several large events that happen every year and small groups that meet in almost all cities in America. The community is very open and willing to help everyone, no matter their level of experience.

A huge benefit to using Drupal is there is probably a module for 90% of what you would need for a project. The last 10% percent of the project is custom to the specific project and would have to created no matter what system you are using.
What do you dislike?
The major versions of Drupal take a long time to be developed and released. The upgrade path from an older major version is not easy sometimes. Drupal depends on a lot of community-built modules to accomplish some basic tasks, and those modules can become stale and not maintained.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
I have built numerous websites of varying complexity for non-profits, and being able to copy parts of them to create a new one is extremely helpful. This allows me to be able to charge less and turn work around quickly.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Make sure you can find developers / admins that know how to use Drupal.
