Drupal is a form of content management system. Many of the websites and software you use on a daily basis are built with it. Drupal comes with a lot of great standard features, such as simple content authoring, dependable efficiency, and strong protection. But it’s simplicity that sets it apart; modularity is one of its guiding principles.
