Do-it-all CMS Drupal

Filed under

I've been on the hunt for a good open source content management system (CMS) – something that is both easy to set up and use, and yet offers good customisation. I don't want my site to look like every other blog in the world.

I'd been hearing the rave reports of Drupal for some time. The Drupal project has a long history, starting life as a bulletin board system by founder Dries Buytaert. Today it finds itself hosting the likes of The Onion, Moby's web site, and Ubuntu's site.

What's particularly interesting about Drupal is its claims to be more than just another blogger CMS. You could in theory roll it out for just about any kind of web site, although CMSs tend to favour content- rather than design-rich websites. I needed a CMS for a news site, and Drupal looked like it would fit the profile perfectly.

Full Story.

The Nexus 6P truly is premium and is a product that both should be tremendously proud of. Both companies should take a bow and we all should stand and applaud this device. With superior software, gorgeous and durable build, a super high resolution display, fantastic camera, a new fingerprint reader, dual-front facing speakers and incredible battery life, the Nexus 6P leaves no detail behind.
