Content management

In my view the simplest and the most popular content management systems are email browsers. Here you can view outline, edit each message, sort by date, from, subject, etc. Typical mail client is in essence a primitive (or not so primitive in case of Lotus Notes) text database.  The only bad thing is that  the headers are not that flexible ( although you can add any X-headers to mark you content they usually cannot be processed in the email browser).

For example you can write a script which create blog entries from emails. In this case you can manage blog using regular email client. You can use some standard attributes like  Date, Target (TO,CC)

Simple content management system does not mean that it is not powerful and always mean that it is flexible. As such they can beat their more complex brothers and sisters in many areas.  One also needs to understand that one size does not fit all: in essence   Blogs, WikiHelpdesks, Bug Tracking Systems are all content management systems with different strong and weak points and different specialization.

Many complex content management systems like infamous Documentum betray Unix principle and create a monster that is counterproductive.

Is Drupal right for you? Probably not :-)
Drupal is a highly configurable, modular content management system. Before you can answer if Drupal is right for you, consider a couple of questions: Which type of Drupal user are you, and what are your needs?

Below is a list of common user types followed by Drupal features. If the features meet your needs and you have the skill-set required to implement them, Drupal might be a perfect system for you. (See the list at the bottom of this page for more on required skills.)

Now is a good time to learn more about Drupal. The Case studies section examines typical types of sites that use Drupal and gives links to real sites of each type. This section includes a listing of hundreds of Drupal sites.

In the Feature overview we survey some of the most important and commonly deployed features of Drupal.
