WordPress and Drupal are content management systems (CMSs), each with its own strengths and weaknesses. Here are some general comparisons between WordPress and Drupal:
Of the two, WordPress is the easiest to use. It comes with a user-friendly interface that simplifies point-and-click customisation using plugins and themes. While the same can be achieved with Drupal, it often requires some technical expertise.
With Drupal being more developer focused, there are more customisation options available out of the box. The same can be achieved with WordPress but may require the use of plugins and / or custom code.
Drupal is often seen as the more secure CMS out of the box. While WordPress core is secure, the popularity of the CMS has painted it as a bigger target. As such, more scrutiny is required when making decisions to modify the CMS with plugins and themes.
WordPress has the largest and most active community with a wide range of forums, tutorials, and documentation available for users. Drupal also has a large and active community, although it may be more oriented towards developers and technical users.
Both WordPress and Drupal are free and open-source. However, add-on software like plugins and themes may require purchasing.
