‘Who’s gonna say that WordPress and Drupal are friends?’ – This must be the question appearing in your mind now. Yes, in the current surroundings, given the great number of addicts for each of the platforms, the competition between them seems a natural thing.
In fact, however, these platforms are hardly fierce competitors, as they’ve got quite different target audience. WordPress caters – first and foremost – for users with little or no technological background. It is very easy to use and functions well right out of the box. It doesn’t mean that seasoned developers don’t use WordPress – it’s far from being true.
With Drupal, the situation is opposite. This CMS (or, being more exact – CMF) platform is most targeted on developers who know their way with code. Out of the box, it requires additional settings to start workinig in the most convenient way. Plus, the learning required to master Drupal is quite significant, so this would hardly look good to users who’re looking to create a simple site. While this is certainly possible, using Drupal for a blog-like website can be an overkill, this platform can do much more.
So as you can see, this is not the matter of brand or popularity, but rather all is about picking the platform that would fully satisfy your needs and help you make it in the most convenient way.
