Web Portal with Open Source
Content Management System
Elegant MicroWeb worked closely with the client in selecting content management
system. Both open source as well as custom-developed content management
systems were offered. With the client having preference for open source content
management system, options were offered to select from various open source
content management systems like Drupal and Joomla, with feasibility of each against
client requirements.
The client picked Drupal as content management system for the portal. Elegant
MicroWeb worked with the client team to design and develop architecture and
framework for the portal. The mutually agreed design and architecture were further
developed into a complete portal.
Drupal is one of the most powerful open source content management system and
provides required basic features. Equipped with a powerful blend of features, Drupal
can support a variety of websites ranging from personal weblogs to large community-
driven websites. Drupal is a free software package that allows an individual or a
community of users to easily publish, manage and organize a wide variety of content
on a website.
The project was divided in three phases: Customized theme design with look-n-feel;
customizing functionalities from Drupal CMS; and developing custom-made
functionalities and modules.
