    If you want custom big budget -Drupal is the way to go. If you want easy - choose Wordpress if your budget is limited. Both of them can be customized depends what you are looking for. Hope that helps

    WP is easy to use and configure whilst Drupal is for geeks as min. customization in drupal needs some ability to write code.Built in security is better than wp.

    I use wp.

    Seems like OP is paid to post these threads. Look at how many useless "this vs that" kinda threads and posts he has posted in the last 24 hrs.

    I'd use Drupal. Maybe because I'm more familiar with it.

    It totally depends on what you want to do. If there is a theme and plugins that you can use with wordpress, do that. But if not, Drupal is much more powerful in terms of what you can do.

    Hi, as already pointed out it really depends on your skill level and objectives.
    I guess you're building a content site otherwise you wouldn't be considering a CMS.
    If you have no coding knowledge it Wordpress, Wordpress, Wordpress. It much more ready out of the box, great themes and can get you all the way to a full running site in no time. Most of plugin get their job done without having to dig deeper in configuration/coding.
    Drupal on the other hand has more potential if you're going custom but not re-inventing the wheel. At the moment it is really in between a CMS and a Framework. Extensive API and a lot of modules that offer APIs and hooks more than a polished and refined end user interface. It's great if you have programming skill though the learning curve is generally agreed to be somewhat steep.
    You can do a lot of customization on wp too but in my experience you can go only up to a point without wasting time. On a different level the same applies to dp. You can customize anything you want but then, why not write the whole thing yourself?

    I also have the impression that the Theme market is generally wider in the Wordpress world but i've never been to much into buying themes so it might not be that true. (and a lot of themes have both wp and dp versions)

    You should try to find some examples similar to what you're planning, read some case histories and do some research.

    cheers

    3. The theme selection is as good as it gets
    4. WordPress is easy to monetize
    5. There are some superb plug-ins
    6. Updates just keep coming

    Unless you are a pure geek then go Wordpress.
    At least you will be treated with a 'little bit' of respect on the support forums if you need to ask something.

    The Drupal forums are full of arses.

    Wordpress is the best answer because it is simply awesome. Remember to use self-hosted Wordpress whereby you will have absolute control of your Wordpress website.
