CMS - Content Management Systems
Saturday, 15 December 2007 01:31

I mean I am testing all the major CMS systems including Joomla, Drupal, Wordpress, E107, Geeklog and still haven’t decided which is the best. Each of them has its own flaws but still Druapal seems to piss me off the most.

 

Drupal Is Dead
Drupal - Is it time to shut it down??

 

Here Is Why Drupal Sucks Big TIme:


• Their Forum is super slow, I mean even the snail moves faster. It is not because of the server, but because of the internal code of Drupal.

• It does not send you email when somebody respond to your topic in Drupal forum - Hello it is 21st Century and still we have to live with mistakes like that. I mean almost every freaking forum sends you automatic notifications when you get a reply to your forum topic, almost every forum. But not freaking drupal. Drupal sleeps comfortably in its bed, smokes some weed and thinks of you people. I do not care. Why is there such a promotion of Drupal, such hype, seminars, the core team is blabbering all over the internet that Drupal is the best CMS there is. Well I tell you it is not and it will never be.

• Even though if part of the MTV uses Drupal it still sucks big time. Probably those guys are considering each minute to switch to another system.

• Each blog post does not have an intro. You have to add a special code to create a teaser. Every freaking blog, cms has that option, but Drupal again lies in bed, drinking beer and smoking some weed and says Fuck you all. Why is it so hard to add a small button to put an article separator like Wordpress and Joomla have. Does Drupal really like to piss people off. I mean it is probably an easy task but the core team Drupal morons don’t think that that is necessary. So they added a simple option to trim each of the article and to set the trim for custom number of words. This is barbaric!!!!! How dare you. Usually people have static content not only blog posts that require the whole article to be displayed not only the intro. And if you set a teaser to kick in after custom number of character, you will get a trimmed front page article and it will look silly.

• Another think in Drupal that is bothering me is that there is a link at the bottom of each blog post that is linking to www.domain.com/blog/1 and has the same content as www.domain.com/blog . Even penguins in north pole are talking about duplicate content and still Drupal morons put a link to a duplicate page under each of the blog posts.

My conclusion. I am almost done with drupal. There is no way we will see and reasonable work by these guys, They are stubborn, lazy, stupid and have no fucking idea about SEO and proper website optimization for search engines.

Why, o why isn’t there a perfect CMS in the world. Each of them has flaws. Wordpress is really good, but at the same time too simple, Joomla is getting there but still is not perfect. And Drupal, well I am looking for my shovel to bury that crappy CMS in the deepest hole on the earth. Drupal you have disappointed me big time.

SMALL UPDATE

I WAS FRUSTRATED EVEN MORE WITH JOOMLA, AND I LOVE THE DRUPAL THE BEST. i CHANGED MY MIND, THERE WAS A TIME WHEN I WAS REALLY FRUSTRATED WITH DRUPAL AND NOW THE DEVS FIXED IT TOTALLY. iT IS MAINTAINED REALLY GOOD. IT IS ALMOST HACK FREE, NOT LIKE JOOMLA, WHERE THE ALBANIAN HACKERS PUT MY JOOMLA SITE ON YOUTUBE AND SHOW OTHER PEOPLE HOW EASY IT IS TO HACK.

DRUPAL IS REALLY GOOD, THE BEST CMS OUTTHERE. IT WILL TAKE YOU A WHILE TO GET TO MASTER IT. BUT THE SUPPORT IS REALLY AMAZING, EACH MODULE DEVELOPER HAS A SUPPORT PAGE ON DRUPAL AND ALMOST 95 % OF QUESITIONS ARE ANSWERED.

AND THERE ARE NOT PAID DRUPAL MODULES INFESTING THE DRUPAL.COM. I CAN'T SAY THAT FOR JOOMLA, WHERE MOST OF THE PLUGINS ARE COMMERCIAL AND FULL OF BUGS.

BUT SOME OF THE MODS ARE BAD PEOPLE. They try to maintain some kind of faschist regime on the forum, banning everybody who does criticize Drupal. I admit it sucks sometimes. Especially some plugins. And if you criticize the developers, you might get banned. They don't take the criticizm well.

Some individuals ADMINS on forum really suck!!
