Drupal Open Source CMS

What is Drupal?

Drupal is an open source content management system (CMS) framework written in PHP and supported worldwide by a committed developer community. The PHP source code for Drupal is available free from licensing costs, saving both time and money on almost any website requiring a CMS. Metal Toad's Drupal experts have implemented hundreds of Drupal development projects and are ready to help your organization to get a Drupal-powered website.

Right out of the box, a Drupal site includes:

  • Blogs
  • Forums
  • RSS Feeds
  • Site Search
  • User Sign In
  • Image Upload
  • Full control of site content
  • Full control of site navigation

Drupal, as powerful as it is, is not optimal for every CMS solution. The vast array of tools out there offer users different designs, functionality, and security features and can confuse even a savvy veteran of the CMS world.
