I run a Drupal (for the most part) shop, and most of our clients come to us already wanting Drupal, so we don’t often have to make the case for it. But recently, a prospect that I truly think would be better suited with Drupal has asked me to make the case for it (since she’s inclined to otherwise go with WordPress.) So it’s forced me to really think about this topic and do some homework so that I could articulate the difference from the point of view of someone who has to make this pretty important decision without getting lost in the technical intricacies of the debate.
One is not better than the other.
First, let’s dispense with the notion that one is better than the other. They both have their pros and cons. It’s about what is the best fit based on the need. But even then—as I Googled information and graphics about the matter, I got a bunch of charts with features as either supported or not supported in one or the other.
Folks, that’s the wrong way to look at this question.
