Drupal is without a doubt the leading open source CMS today. With its huge usage and user base as well as the large number of add-ons, it can be adapted to suit the needs of most modern websites. Furthermore, thanks to the nature of the Drupal.org website itself, it is much easier these days to make sound decisions on what add-ons to use that will meet sustainability requirements in the future.
Drupal's highly adaptable nature in managing sites is greatly desired. However, it is quite different than other CMS software as it is also intended to act as a CMF. That initial learning curve when first starting to use Drupal is the challenge that seems to dissuade designers from using it. With Building a Website with Drupal, you will learn everything you need to know about how to build a website using Drupal, beginning with installing a test server, building a prototype and custom theme, all the way through to deployment. Topics such as the usage of views and other common add-ons, downloading editor files and the WYSIWYG module, and integrating the open source Tiny MCE editor are covered.
