Q&A: What’s the Difference Between Drupal and Joomla?
A colleague, who needed to decide between using Drupal or Joomla for her company, asked me to explain the differences between the two and why Start Right preferred Drupal. Here’s what I told here:
Modules and Extensions???
Drupal, like Joomla uses “modules” or “extensions/plugins” that have been tested by thousands and approved for use in the Drupal community. The difference with Drupal’s modules and other content management systems is the modularity. Drupal starts out with a very basic frame so that you can add exactly what you need without unnecessary software getting in the way.
- Upset stomach, mild heartburn, diarrhea, constipation.
- Bloating, gas.
- Dizziness with headaches.
- Skin itching or rash.
- Blurred vision or ringing in your ears.
Look at the Community
Drupal shines with more complex websites. It’s a great solution for people who want to build feature-rich websites and it’s a great solution for large enterprises. That’s our sweet spot.
