WordPress or Drupal

asked Sep 12, 2013 in Website Builder by mark (220 points)
Hello all..
I have some products that I plan to sell online and for that I would need a website. I have never used CMS before and I want to learn as I build my website. I want a simple website, for displaying my products and selling them. Nothing too fancy at least initially. Now I was wondering what CMS should I go with. I am considering either WordPress or Drupal. Which one do you guys think is better for me?
Appreciate your responses.

I would recommend WordPress. It’s easier than Drupal and has an excellent support community as well as tons of available plugins for almost anything you need to do on your site.

Drupal is probably more  powerful, and it is good for building complex and large CMS sites. However it’s a bit complicated and not easy to get. WordPress is more suitable for beginners and for simple and small sites. It’s easier to add new features in WordPress sites.

It is actually very hard and tricky to choose one between these two giants. Although, it also depends on what kind of project you are going to build on these platforms. Both Drupal and WordPress have certain pros and cons like any other thing.  I think you should check out http://getnulledscripts.com/create-website-wordpress/ which will clarify all your doubts regarding the selection of any particular platform.

I think, it’s a never ending debate, as followers of both the platforms thinks that the one they use is supreme. However, both are apex platforms and have specific applications. The selection of any particular one really depends on the kind of project that we are going to build. However, visiting http://dailynulled.com/comparison-different-cms-wordpress-vs-joomla-vs-drupal/ would certainly give you a clear idea about them.
