    I found it to be easy to run. I have never used Drupal.
    I was using Joomla and trying to modify an extension. It was too much of a bother and I shifted to drupal. It's much easier to set up your layout with drupal moving blocks.

    You can also make major changes to types of pages by creating a custom file called [yourcontenttype].tpl.php file

    Joomla is easy to add content. Did you change the template?

    Wordpress can be tricky to mod a template. But, it's the best blogging platform in my opinion.

    I don't know much about Joomla, but obviously it's good for those who are developing projects in this platform. Personally I'd prefer Drupal. Some reasons I can say so you may consider Drupal for your SEO-based Web development projects.

    * Advanced URL Control
    * Custom Content Types and Views
    * Revision Control
    * Taxonomy
    * User Management
    * Page Titles and Meta Tags
    * Excellent Documentation
    * PHP Template
    * Drupal Cookbooks
    * Large and Friendly Community

    The seo tags and 'seo friendly' page names put drupal out in front for me.

    Hi,

    No I did no work on the template it was made by a local web designer from the town. All I did was ad post admin the forum and handle the sales. Learnt all I could about site promotions.

    You sure are right about the WP templates not forgiving at all. But I am learning how to slowly.

    Hmmm...interesting discussion but it still leaves me confused :P

    Well, i've found joomla sites(templates i.e.) to be a bit more attractive. Am not aware of the back-end of either of them though.

    Ahh... that was an old post. I switched back to Joomla.

    I have Wordpress, Joomla, and Drupal sites -- in addition to static sites.

    I think I hate every CMS ever created.

    I switched over to Drupal. It's working better for me on my current project. Wordpress is good. But all the CMS have issues.

    I have tried both Drupal and Joomla. IMHO, the learning curve is too long and the benefits are too few.

    When you have a one-horse consulting company, standardizing on a single CMS platform has benefits. I already have substantial experience with WordPress, so that will remain my choice until I see a larger benefit from something else.
