What is Drupal? 

Drupal is a free, open source content management system (CMS) to build and maintain websites, online directories, e-commerce stores, intranets and other types of digital content. It can be used by individuals or groups of users and is a useful CMS for developers, marketers and agencies. Basically, anyone looking to structure and manage their digital content can benefit from Drupal's tools and workflows.

Drupal is suitable for developing both simple websites and complex web applications. It includes thousands of modules and themes to attract web audiences, grow brand awareness and build a community. The CMS provides an intuitive, fairly straightforward user interface (UI) to easily create and publish digital content. It accommodates unlimited content types and simple tools to create, edit, retrieve and present this content to end users. In addition, Drupal features a sophisticated user role classification and permissions system to control access to its features and content.

Key features of Drupal

Drupal is known for its "what you see is what you get," or WYSIWYG, content creation and editing tools.

In addition, Drupal's no-code layout builder includes built-in templates, layouts and a drag-and-drop interface to build pages.

Drupal's media library enables users to add media to a site. They can also update the library with items, including audio, video, images, files and remote content from sites like YouTube or Twitter. Its form builder helps users create simple forms, e.g., contact forms, and complex forms, e.g., multistep application forms.
