Here is a quick listing of attributes of both WordPress and Drupal which will take you to a position where you will be able to choose the most appropriate one for your requirements:
Wordpress, which is somewhere being considered a blogging platform more than a CMS hence many people, are still confused about its existence as a content management system. But the platform is quite a lot popular and has a number of non-blogging websites, thus prove to be an effective content management system as well.
The best feature of WordPress is its simplicity and style, which provides stunning themes along with free and paid plug-ins. Feature which developers likes the most is it’s easy to understand dashboard which clearly reveal the task to perform, hence makes it very easy for a developer to manage the content. The pitfall associated with it is its vulnerability for attack and lack of security. The core code and overall page management is very poor which hesitates the developers while using it.
On the other hand, Drupal has an edge over WordPress in form of high security. It’s less prone to security threats due to having clean core code and robust community support. Along with that, the platform arrives with more than 6.000 modules hence provides quite many excellent features. The only drawback associated with Drupal is its costing. It’s far more expensive than WordPress hence most of the developers avoid using it for their basic requirements.
After going through the comparison, it’s clear both the systems are ideal at their places, having their respective pros and cons. It’s all about the priorities and requirements. If you want to design a website which is easy to manage, WordPress is for you. Or if you want to design a secure website and willing to spend some dollars for the same, Drupal will be a better choice for you.
