Back to Drupal
Just when I thought I'd left Drupal behind, I've got a big CiviCRM / website project, and Drupal seems like the tool for the job again.
Of course, I go back to Drupal excited to try out Drupal 8 now! And sure enough, super popular modules like webform are still not Drupal 8 ready. And CiviCRM doesn't even support Drupal 8 yet. And then I remember one of the reasons I had planned to leave Drupal (the huge headache between major version migrations). Back to Drupal 7 it is I guess...
I'm not sure if I should be excited or terrified. Probably both, which I am.
Yeah, I've been using CiviCRM under WordPress much more often in the past couple years. The integration isn't as complete, there are some more advanced functions that are Drupal only, but all the basics are there. This project just seems to cal for some of the power of Drupal, like the more advanced CMS and CiviCRM features will be important over the long run.
I suppose I just feel stuck between the simplicity of WordPress and the power of Drupal. You hit ceilings with WordPress more quickly, but Drupal takes so much work to get it where you need it to be. Here goes another try on another website though...
WordPress can do all the basic stuff, like display profiles or CiviCRM pages or whatever, but you don't have the same potential to integrate content/permissions in both directions like you can in Drupal.
