Drupal is a flexible CMS (Content Management System) that allows you to create a wide variety of websites, some of which are summarized below :
Create a website with Static Content
Drupal is a great tool for creating traditional websites that have a relatively static set of content. The
core release of Drupal allows you to create as many unique pages as you like. Drupal also gives you the
opportunity to set any particular page you create as the home page.
Create a website with Dynamic Contents
In addition to static pages, the core Drupal release allows you to create a blog, upload file attachments
and aggregate content from other sites. It’s easy to add a blog or news updates to your static content.
You could upload and share press releases or other company documents. You can pull in news that
relates to your site from an RSS feed by using the aggregator module. People can subscribe to your
dynamic content by utilizing one of the many RSS feeds made available by the system.
