@jasonwiser Hey everybody, it’s always a great thing to be the first one disagreeing. So here I go. I think WP is not comparable to Drupal, because they are not meant to be used for the exact same thing. WP is an easy out-of-the-box blog CMS. It is built to maintain a simple news based workflow. You don’t need to have any programming knowledge to set up a site. WP is simply the best for blog based sites.
Drupal, however, is, in my opinion, much better for bigger, more holistic, websites. Yes, Drupal needs much more customization. You need to decide about a wysiwyg-editor, you need to add fundamental modules, and you definetely need knowledge, in hmtl, php and css. But once you get there, Drupal offers the best workflow for maintaining large user groups with different access levels to content and backend, for maintaining a huge sitemap with different levels (WP is not built for multi level menus), for customizing your content in different regions on your site (WP does a sidebar, yes, but Drupal and Joomla have multi level regions built in). And – this goes at least for Switzerland, having four official languages – Drupal is much, much better in integrating a logic and consistent multilingual environment.
For my web projects I choose WP for a news/blog-site, Joomla for small websites and Drupal for large projects.
That being said, I herewith declare myself ready for bearing the blame
