Why OVLG has adopted Drupal architecture and discarded WordPress

Almost 50% of the website has migrated to Drupal as it offers a wide array of features and a richer admin experience than WordPress. Read below to understand the differences.


WordPress: This architecture is vulnerable to hackers. They can access plugin and remove thousands of websites. Usually, most security problems occur at the server level.

Drupal: It offers enterprise level security and perhaps this is why various government websites have embraced Drupal architecture. The most notable example is whitehouse.gov.

Responsive architecture

Drupal: Users can access OVLG from their computers and cell phones. This means there are 2 versions of OVLG - (i) For desktop (ii) For mobile. This calls for responsive design and development, which can be better managed through Drupal architecture.

In a responsive design, images don't scale properly to every break point. Drupal architecture allows you to set image sizes with the Image Style module. You can do this through admin only. It may take a little bit of time, but at least you can complete the work inside of the admin. You won't require php files.

WordPress:Here image sizes for every break point is available in the functions.php file.

Mobile theme

WordPress: You can get mobile starter themes in this architecture. You may also use a native mobile application.

Drupal:This architecture offers extra content fields for every page that will appear in mobile devices. Besides, they're better run off a sub domain.

Future proofing

WordPress: Both the code and the database need upgrade. The new or upgraded version is available in every 3-4 months.

Drupal: The code is not upgradable. However you can upgrade the database.

Last but not the least, WordPress is good for small blogs and small websites. On the other hand, Drupal architecture is suitable for a big website like OVLG. It offers better admin experience for content editors. Besides, it has some strong features to handle complicated projects.

Clients always come first for OVLG. So, we are determined to take all the steps to make our clients happy and satisfied. Drupal architecture is new. As such, there might be a few problems in the first few days. We'll solve them soon so that our clients can use our services and enter into the debt free life quickly.
