Drupal is unquestionably one of the most widely preferred CMS, thanks to its multiple capabilities and compatibility across different browsers and operating systems. However, it has its set of challenges which has also led it to be detested by many. The complexity levels and vulnerability are among such factors and this is where the Yii framework Development proves to be a better choice. Letâs see in detail why you should switch from Drupal to Yii:
- When you are creating a website from the root level, Drupal can prove to be a great ally. That said, however, with latest changes in PHP 5 which have made their way to Yii, you have a framework at your disposal that would have pre-loaded functions, which minuses the need of writing PHP codes for them. The pre-loaded functions are more dynamic and resourceful than those offered by Drupal. There is a great deal of automation in the modules of Yii framework and it helps.
- Drupal kills a lot of time and resources when being implemented on a site that garners huge traffic. It is probably perfect for site that are not content rich, and have a small dedicated bunch of followers. But as traffic keeps growing, so do the challenges encountered. When you need multi-functional modules on the site, and there are forms to be built, Drupal wonât serve as an ideal choice. Yii framework would save a lot of time for working on the same deliverables and equipping your site with greater functionalities. The coding for Yii is pretty much without any fuss and thus saves a lot of development time.
- Some of the modules Drupal offers are encumbered by features you hardly need. When you are bargaining for two Drupal modules, it will bequeath you with ten, most of being of no use to you. Each functionality on offer has multiple php files associated with it. Moreover, you have to call objects from the database that come in bunches, the larger part of which does not mean anything to you. Hence, if and ever you face certain discrepancies, solving them takes an eternity. The RewriteRule of Yii enables you to modify images as per your requirements, without calling the index.php file. Thus, you make a lot of savings on time while scaling the images using tools offered by Yii.
- The Content Construction Kit of Drupal 7 really convolutes up the things. The CCK tables make sorting the database an arduous task, owing to the multifarious queries that are going in all directions. Yii creates only that number of exclusive spaces in the database as you need.
