  5. 8. So… how do I start? <ul><li>First of all you prepare your website </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Find the idea </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Create a basic sitemap </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Then you go shopping for: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Modules </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Themes </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Other settings (user accounts,menus, translations) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>And the King: Content </li></ul></ul>
  6. 11. Benefits <ul><li>REALLY powerful tool (if you are a developer or skilled power user) </li></ul><ul><li>Small choice of modules </li></ul><ul><li>Well integrated modules </li></ul><ul><li>Fast </li></ul><ul><li>Browser Compatibility </li></ul><ul><li>The greatest feature: one installation many websites </li></ul>

  9. 14. Is drupal THE CMS for me? <ul><li>Probably but to be honest, it depends. Just like cars. </li></ul><ul><li>If you can afford a Ferrari you better get the Ferrari. </li></ul><ul><li>If you are on a budget or you want to go off-road (and have the skills) then go for the Lada Niva. </li></ul><ul><li>If Ford Focus is THE car for you then Drupal might be THE CMS for you. </li></ul><ul><li>Conclusion: Choosing a CMS depends on your current situation: needs, wants and can afford (not only in money) </li></ul>
