Drupal is a Content Management System (CMS) that uses modules to allow the site administrator to organize and display content, customize appearance and manage routine tasks. It is also known as a content management framework (CMF) as it is geared more towards configurability and customization. If the website being developed has to be search engine friendly and scalable, a content management system has to be used. In general what a CMS does is stores the content in a database, keeps design and content separately and making changes on all pages just requires to be updated in one place.

Below are few reasons why you should consider it.

User Management: – Drupal has strong user role and access control functionality. Custom user roles and custom access levels can be created as and when needed.

Advanced URL Control: – Drupal gives the user complete control over URL structure. Each item of content in Drupal can be given a custom URL also known as aliases. Users can automate custom URL structures for each different content type with the ‘Pathauto’ Module.

Custom Content Types and Views: – The Content Construction Kit (CCK) and view modules can be used to create new content types and create advanced custom views. Content types could contain news stories, tutorials, blog posts and so on.
