      Review ofWordPressWordPress

      Wordpress is extremely easy to learn and implement. Although is it not as sexy for devs to work with it is by far the most cost effective way to get a dynamic website up and running with very little debugging.

      It's great for: * Landing pages * Private Social Networks * Blogs - obviously ;) * News Networks * Member sites * Multilingual content

      Review ofDrupalDrupal

      I am not a developer, however Drupal provided me with almost all the modules that i needed to create complex, responsive and fast websites with front-end and proper admin interfaces.

      Most critical part of Drupal is the compression, caching and other performance details in the core, this makes site perform faster just while we get started.

      I use WordPress to develop easy-to-maintain, dynamic sites for clients and at my job at KHM Travel Group. I also used WordPress to develop personal/project sites while at Bowling Green State University.

      As the app's CMS and CRM.

      It is being used in a headless state and is completely decoupled from the frontend; only serving it's content to the AngularJS framework via a RESTful API.

      Wordpress is used for our blog and some of our content & landing pages, runs on a subdomain. We also use a custom Python proxy to bring in blog content to the primary domain (/blog).
