Overall Satisfaction with Drupal

Our college and entire university have been using Drupal to create web pages. It provides an easy web working environment for both web professionals and non-professional users. For the professional users, you can work directly in a code mode and write your own CSS style. For the non-professional users, you can use the default functions and use it as simply as you are using a Word application. Drupal also gives different users different roles. You can assign a less experienced user a lower role, he/she can draft the initial page and wait for an experienced user to approve and publish the page.

Pros

  • Work fine for both code writers and non-experienced web content creators
  • Easy to start with
  • Easy to manage different users

Cons

  • WYSIWYG editor
  • I think it provides an opportunity for more users to create their own web pages.
  • It is also an easy way to manage the ADA compliance issues, somewhat. Now ADA gets more and more complicated, such as the same text must have the same exact URLs.
Drupal is a good content management system for a large organization which has maybe more than a couple of hundreds of pages. It might not worth it if your website has a few pages.
