Are you looking for a platform that can help you manage all content? Many users around the world claim that Drupal is the ideal platform to achieve that!
If you need to manage certain content on Joomla or WordPress, this system will allow you to do that. The most important thing is that you do not have to be a technical user at all to enjoy all the benefits of this content management system.
From now on, you can easily add, change, update, or remove certain content from any website you want.
Build a site of your choice - blogs (with comments), header/footer, pages of any type, and so on.
Many Drupal users often compare it to WordPress, but we will prove to you that this system actually exceeds the possibilities of its "competition", because it can also be used as an application framework.
Now we will explain how Dupal works, and in what ways you can use it. Well, let's start, we have a lot of work to do!
What does Drupal offer and what are the terms you need to adopt to properly handle this content management system?
We have already said that Drupal allows you to create different content for blogs, but we did not introduce you to the fact that this system can help you create navigation structures and menus, as well as completely manage comments and users who leave them on the blog.
In order to achieve all that, it is very good to learn Drupal's well-known "lexicon".
1. Nodes. This is the basic unit in the system. You can use two types of nodes - those for creating pages, and others for blogs. A unique URL is what makes them different from other types of nodes and pages.
2. Different types of content. If you ask users who already know all the secrets of Drupal - what is the most useful feature of this system? Everyone will unanimously tell you that it would definitely be "Content Types". So, there are two types of content here, and those can be basic pages and blogs. It will depend on your personal needs whether you will use Drupal only for titles and body fields (basic pages), or for something more. For example, for a blog, we have a section about the author too (apart from the title and body of the content).
Create, update, delete, modify - now it's all much faster, easier, and clearer with Drupal features. Explore additional modules - in the end, you don't have to be afraid of advanced features because they are also presented and done in the simplest way - use them without the need for technical knowledge.
3. Blocks. The part without the URL makes up static or dynamic content. Do you want certain pieces of content to appear on the entire site? You can easily assign them to some of the global regions. Example? Copyright. An example of a dynamic block? User login section. With Drupal, all of this can be solved in just a few clicks.
4. Menu. Create everything you want and need quickly and easily, and remove menu items at any time. What appears in the navigation of your website can now be changed in the blink of an eye.
What should I use Drupal for?
1. Views. In addition to all the other features we have already listed, we believe that this feature will be of interest to most users and site owners.
This is also the most popular and most used benefit of the Drupal - Views section. The module itself is now integrated into the system, and you are able to create different views of the data on the site - tables and dynamic lists are just some of the examples. State what content you are displaying, what your wishes and goals are, set display dates, and highlight specific pages, and Drupal will do it all for you!
Overall, with Drupal, you are finally able to create a multifunctional page that will bring you many benefits.
Multi-layered navigation structure, better content overview, marketing automation - from now on all that in a single place, achievable with just a few clicks, without technical knowledge!
