Drupal 6 RC2
Drupal 6 RC2 was released yesterday. And, I must also say that the more familiar I have become with Drupal 6, my previous opinion that building Drupal themes is not as straightforward as building Joomla! templates has mellowed quite a bit.
Why the change of heart, you ask? Read on to find out...
I decided to take my tried and true (but somewhat dated) Joomla! template and create a theme for Drupal 6 that more or less has the same layout. And I was pleasantly surprised to find out that it was not nearly as difficult and time-consuming as I had anticipated. Much more straightforward than Drupal 5.
Disclaimer: This is not saying that Drupal is better than Joomla! or vice versa. I use both of them and think they are both outstanding examples of the goodness that open source brings...as is my old friend Wordpress and many other open source software packages I use or have used in the past
