#SLAchat: Q & A with Ruth Kneale: Drupal vs. Wordpress
#SLAchat is a discussion series we hope you participate in by talking with your colleagues about topics that interest you. Send me an e-mail if you have a topic-idea for an upcoming SLAchat. We're kicking the first one off with a Q & A with our own Ruth Kneale:
Q: Which one feature, gadget, or plug-in does your preferred tool have that the other does not?
Ruth: The Drupal community is amazing. When I was comparing the two, WordPress definitely won the "easy to install" category, but the support for Drupal users to do more than a simple turnkey site is fantastic, and a large part of why I love it. I also find content addition and editing to be easier in Drupal than in Wordpress – the user interface is cleaner and generates a lot fewer questions by my content managers.
Q: In 2 sentences, a picture, or link, describe your experience with Drupal and/or Wordpress.
Ruth: I chose and implemented Drupal at my place of work, http://atst.nso.edu, and it went so well we're now rolling it out across all the NSO websites. I (of course) use Wordpress for the SLA websites (http://pam.sla.org, for example). They both have pros and cons – it all depends on your end-result needs.
Q: Do you have a crystal ball?
Ruth: I do, actually! (It's purple)
Q: Predict which tool will be around in 5 years, and which one will not? Why?
Ruth: I believe both will still be around and in use in 5 years, although not in the forms they are now.
Consider Ruth weighed-in. Now, what do you think?
note: more discussion questions will be asked next week, and we plan to cover a variety.
