Frequently Asked Questions
At initial setup, Drupal has the appearance of a basic website with the standard features you’d expect from a CMS. You’ll need a developer to help customize the design (theming) to fit your brand. There are thousands of free modules available that add capabilities and features, allowing your developer to mold Drupal into exactly what you need in a custom website. Contact us to schedule a free intro call and we’ll walk you through some of Drupal’s features and answer any questions you might have.
We refer to Drupal as a “Swiss army knife” of content management systems. If you’re looking for a custom website that can seamlessly integrate with your business and brand, Drupal will take you further than WordPress. After more than 15 years of building websites, Drupal is still our go-to CMS for clients needing an enterprise-level platform that will stand the test of time. Schedule a free intro call and we can discuss your project and whether Drupal is the right fit.
Drupal provides an admin interface that non-technical users can use to easily manage content tasks like creating new page layouts and managing information architecture. Though it is a bit of a steeper learning curve for new users, our team will customize your admin interface to fit your unique processes and provide in-depth training and reference materials to help you get started. If you're interested in learning more about the Drupal admin interface, set up a free intro call and we'll give you a tour to help get you started.
Drupal is an open source platform, meaning there are no platform licensing costs. However, you will typically require help from a developer depending on the level of customization you need for your website. Learn more about Drupal website costs or contact us to set up a free intro call to get an estimate specific to your needs.
All of your website's content, data, customer accounts, and design can be migrated over to Drupal. How content is migrated will depend on the current website you wish to migrate away from. Sometimes this entails manually migrating page by page, in other cases, a faster migration via a plugin may programmatically move everything over automatically. Learn more about how we approach Drupal migrations or schedule a free intro call and we can discuss the logistics of migrating your website.
There are some things that can’t be migrated directly into Drupal and will need to be reconstructed on your new website, including:
- Your design/theme
- Custom extensions
- Custom features
Drupal remains one of the most secure CMS platforms available today. Open source platforms, such as Drupal, are generally more secure — by allowing everyone to access the code, the number of developers working on a vulnerability will be much wider than on a proprietary platform. Read more about choosing a secure CMS platform or schedule a free intro call and we’ll answer any questions you might have about Drupal.
Minor (feature) releases are scheduled approximately every six months. Smaller security updates may be more frequent. Drupal upgrades are only necessary when there is a critical security update. Otherwise, upgrades can be introduced at times when you are rolling out new features or other development projects for your website. Schedule a free intro call and we can discuss Drupal upgrades in greater detail.
