Drupal-The best open source CMS of the year

First let me say a big sorry for being absent for more than two months of time. I was having sort of a writers block and didn’t have a mind to write anything. But that doesn’t mean I was idle for the whole lot of time.

In fact, it has been good in regards to my work at Vesess. After last year exams were over, I put all my effort into finishing some works that have been elongating. And I also got the chance to help build our new job portal Plex.lk which opened to public recently and seems promising.

The specialty of Plex is that it is totally based on Drupal, which is the best Open Source CMS in Open Source CMS awards, 2007. The experience is totally exhilarating, when compared to some other CMS such as Expression Engine (I will write about that experience later)

The work I did mostly involved around module customization. Actually I had to create a new module for the site and I’m on my way publishing it to Drupal community. One of the best things about Drupal is that its huge array of modules, which covers almost everything. But when we were going to launch the site we were presented with a requirement to moderate invitations (since the site is still in beta) and we were unable to find a suitable module for that. So I created a new module which use one existing module – Invite and I named the new module ‘Invite Request’. (The new module is in use, you can see it in right hand side bar of Plex.lk)

I guess I will be seeing more of Drupal in future as Plex.lk is still on its way and there’s lot more work to be done. And it’s a good news because I’m enjoying my work with Drupal.

    Hello Cala
    I went through the plex.lk, and it is really impressive.
    Good work.

  2. Have you ever used Mambo or Joomla? If in case you have, could you please tell your comparison among these and which one is post. How about posting about it rather? But pls pass on your comments to me before you spend time on preparing a post on it.

    Drupal beats Joomla in flexibility, multi language sites and the modules are better and free. Drupal was also choosen best CMS in 2008!
