DRUPAL

Drupal is one of the best Content Management Systems (CMS). It is written in PHP and requires a MySQL database.
Drupal  is a free and open-source content-management framework written in PHP and distributed under the GNU General Public License.
Core
In a Drupal website's default configuration, content can be contributed by either registered or anonymous users (at the discretion of the administrator) and is made accessible to web visitors by a variety of selectable criteria.
Drupal maintains a detailed changelog of core feature updates by version.

Core modules
Drupal core includes optional modules that can be enabled by the administrator to extend the functionality of the core website.

Core themes
Drupal includes core themes, which customize the "look and feel" of Drupal sites.
The Color Module, introduced in Drupal core 5.0, allows administrators to change the color scheme of certain themes via a browser interface.

Auto-update notification:
Drupal can automatically notify the administrator about new versions of modules, themes, or the Drupal core.It's important to update quickly after security updates are released.

Embracing Windows developers:
With Drupal 7's new database abstraction layer and ability to run on the Windows web server IIS, it is now easier for Windows developers to participate in the Drupal community. A group on Drupal.org is dedicated to Windows issues

Accessibility:

With the release of Drupal 7, Web accessibility has been greatly improved by the Drupal community. Drupal is a good framework for building sites accessible to people with disabilities, because many of the best practices have been incorporated into the program code Core.
 There have been many improvements to both the visitor and administrator sides of Drupal, especially:

Drag and drop functionality
Improved color contrast and intensity
Adding skip navigation to Core themes
Adding labels by default for input forms
Fixing CSS display:none with consistent methods for hiding and exposing text onfocus.
The community also added an accessibility gate for Core issues in Drupal 8.[50]

Dynamic Website

Dynamic website

A dynamic website is a site whose content can be dynamically generated, meaning that content is displayed according to the user who accesses or other parameters. Dynamic web sites are created in languages more complex than static websites and include the use of databases, which offer more development opportunities for a static website.

The advantages of a dynamic website

The updates do not require specific IT knowledge and can be performed in house: no risk of dependence vis-à-vis a webmaster.
Dynamic web sites are scalable: they can graft a variety of modules. They allow almost unlimited capabilities in terms of interactivity: newsletters, calendars, online payments, forums, ...
The cost of developing a dynamic site is higher than a static site. However, updates are performed within the company, the savings quickly take precedence over the basic investment.

Why opting for a dynamic website?

A dynamic website is the ideal solution for companies wishing to post the majority of its products and services. The multitude of options and tools available offers unlimited opportunities for development, tailored to the needs of the business. The update in-house allows complete control and instantaneous evolution of the site.

A dynamic website for your business


You want to give your business a dynamic website? Web Solution Way can provide you the solution best suited to your type of business, your product or philosophy. Contact us via our form.
