What's New in April for Open Source CMS

Pantheon

San Francisco-based Pantheon expanded the popular web development platform it created for Drupal to WordPress installs this month.

The company's technology, based on a container-based architecture, helps professional developers and designers build and maintain websites and applications. It offers an array of tools like version control, dev/test environments, team management, backups and workflow. (Click image to enlarge.)

Pantheon CEO and co-founder Zack Rosen said the three-year old company initially focused on Drupal because its development team included a number of former Drupal consultants.

But he noted that WordPress is the world’s most popular content management system (CMS), powering over 76 million websites (19% of the web).

"Owing to its simplicity, WordPress has become the de facto Internet publishing tool for businesses with straightforward content management and design requirements," he wrote in a blog post. "We have a huge amount of respect for what the WordPress community has accomplished. We share the same mission: to build a simpler, easier, more powerful and more democratized World Wide Web."

What's New in March for Open Source CMS

A round of applause for Drupal, please. Drupal is now powering more than one million websites worldwide, reinforcing its ranking as one of the most popular content management systems (CMS) on the planet. 

According to BuiltWith Research, Drupal powers more than 12 percent of the world’s top 100,000 websites as measured by traffic. That's still far behind Wordpress, which runs more than 43 percent of those top 100,000 sites. But it's still a significant feat, according to Holly Ross, executive director of the Drupal Association, the nonprofit organization that supports the Drupal open source project.

Ross is clearly enamored with Drupal. "Every day, we hear stories from all over the world about how Drupal is changing individual lives for the better," she effused in a statement.

Is there is a direct relationship between open source CMS and better lives? We'll let you make your own decision about that. And as you ponder the question, read on for more news from the world of free and open source CMS.

Drupal vs. Joomla: An Engineer's Take

If you're evaluating open source content management solutions (CMS), two in particular -- Drupal and Joomla -- stick out for being widely adopted and lauded by companies and developers.

Both of them are full featured Web CMS platforms. If your business only needs a simple blog or wiki, both will feel bloated and you would be better served with a simpler platform such as Wordpress. If your business requires complex content hierarchy, tagging and authoring, you are now in the realm of these two platforms.
