Open source Content Management System
Drupal is a very popular open source content management system (CMS) used by millions of website owners throughout the UK and the world. Install Drupal on Webfusion hosting and you can easily publish and manage the content on your website. No matter the type of website you run - whether it's a forum, a corporate or ecommerce website, or a regular blog - using Drupal will save you valuable time that you can invest in content strategy and creation.
Drupal is easy to install and administrate but beginners might need some help using it because of the complex programming interface. However, if you're determined to learn how to use it, don't hesitate to join the active community of Drupal supporters and contributors to get further instructions.
With Drupal you can:
Manage your website
You can manage the content, the appearance, the structure and the functionality of your website from the admin panel. Take advantage of the numerous free themes available in the Drupal library to give your site the look you want. If you are looking for an original theme, you can always get the help of a web designer to customise an existing theme to your specific requirements.
With Drupal, working with a team is easy. If you run several sites, you can share administrative rights with a collaborator that can take some of your tasks, like reviewing or editing articles, moderating comments. As the main administrator, you have complete control over the content that is being published on the website.
The assigned administrator as well as the editors can be given limited or extended rights to the site. An editor can publish an article freely or can submit it for review by an administrator who decides if to make it public or not. Changing the status of the content from private to public can be done using the Workflow module.
Use Drupal to configure and customise the functionality of your website even if programming is not your strongest point. Drupal core, the standard release of Drupal, comes with a series of modules that can enable you to customise the appearance and functionality of your site easily. If you own several sites, you have the possibility to manage all of them using the Multi-site feature and you only need to install Drupal on Webfusion hosting once.
Reach your audience
Promote your website on the web not just in the UK but all over the world and reach your audience easier using specific modules. Use Facebook Connect module, Twitter module and ShareThis module to integrate social networks to your site and get in touch with clients and potential clients in their favourite virtual environment. The XML sitemap module will help optimise the content on your website while the Aggregation module allows you to publish your site via RSS feeds.
Create, organise and publish content
With the right modules, any user can publish content, add images or video podcasts to a Drupal site even with little programming skills. For instance, the WYSIWYG module makes it easy for any user to create rich text content.
