    One can easily install and use Drupal. There are tons of videos on the internet and various sites which teach you how to achieve that. You can refer to their documentation too. They have lots of modules which you can use to enhance your website. I have been using Drupal for several years, and it's advancement always amazes me.

    Pros : Easy to use and customize. A lot of modules and services which you can install. Open source community so that you can install modules, write your own modules thus contributing to the Drupal community. Unlike WordPress all the modules are free and you can post issues if you encounter and that would be taken care of. Drupal is extremely flexible and scalable. You can contribute to the community by developing modules or releasing patches thus fixing the bugs in the modules. Drupal has become now responsive. Drupal 8 has a default responsive theme which makes it easy for the admin to make changes if logged in using a phone or a tablet. The new thing about Drupal 8 is that it has a big pipe mechanism where you can cache some of your content and show it to the users who have limited access to the internet. The updated content is then sync onto the users' browser if the internet speed improves.

    Cons : Drupal 8 is the latest which have been released last November. They don't have many modules as such as the community is currently making a transition to adopt new standards. The hook system if not used in the right way could bog down the app. Since each module could implement their own hook, the more modules implement a specific hook, the more time the system will take bootstrapping. Drupal 8 makes use of new features such as a twig, Symphony frameworks which will require intensive learning as those are based on the concepts of PHP 7. Drupal 8 is a new version and requires you to go through the documentation which is posted on their website. You have to add Drupal behaviours to your modules to load the javascript when the module loads unlike loading it at the top of your page because javascript loads onto your browser as soon as the page loads.

    Drupal is an amazing assemblage of open source development that works from scratch to create something unique. The drawback of earlier versions of this software is its reliance on development as a maintenance tool. With the release of version 7.0, it has become a tool that those of us without a background in coding can comprehend. It is much more user-friendly than earlier versions, which makes this a valuable CMS for the world of websites. Drupal is quickly expanding its boundaries and capabilities to fill diverse roles in social networking, eCommerce, multimedia and more.

    Everything feels fast, fun to use and powerful as you navigate through the system. It really is astonishing that a product of this caliber is free and for that, we have to say a big thanks to the MODx team for bolstering the open source community with yet another quality product. Great work guys!

    MODx features a lot of tools that can dig deep into the nuts-and-bolts of a website in order to produce a flawless design. However, knowledge of development for website coding is needed. Installing MODx could be a great way to help yourself learn HTML and other languages if you are new to developing. Experienced coders may find MODx useful if they are looking for a free alternative to Dreamweaver, Visual Studio, and/or other development methods that provide a more robust WYSIWYG editing system. Like all website design tools, a user really needs to spend a few hours figuring out the system before an informed decision can be made about using this editor.
