Drupal + Joomla! = Droomla
Introducing, Droomla: The power of Drupal inside Joomla!
Droomla is 'corePHP's' amazing new integration of two of the most popular Content Management Systems in the world: Drupal and Joomla!
We developed Droomla so you could enjoy the power & flexibility of Drupal AND ease-of-use of Joomla! right inside your Joomla! 1.5 installation.
The power of Drupal now integrated into Joomla!
Let's face it, Drupal may be powerful & flexible, but many find it complicated to learn and lacking good, quality 3rd party templates & extensions. Joomla, on the other hand, has thousands of great templates & extensions, is easy to learn, but lacks some key features that many feel are essential in order to build a modern website — such as a powerful blogging engine, nested categories, a built-in download manager/document repository, CCK abilities (easily move content around), and many other features already found in Drupal.
All in one CMS
Don't get us wrong, both systems can manage your content...but each CMS has its own strengths & weaknesses. Individually, Drupal or Joomla may not be able to do everything you want them to do. That's why combining Drupal with Joomla makes perfect sense. We created our Droomla software to give you a true all-in-one CMS solution; the best of both worlds, so to speak.
A true Enterprise CCK for Joomla
There are a handful of powerful CCK's (content construction kits) available for Joomla! such as Zoo and K2. Rethink what you know of Drupal and imagine it as the most powerful CCK available for Joomla! Build and move content items around with ease inside Joomla. Put a module position here; a content item there, etc. Drupal has been in the top 3 of open-source CMS's for years, mostly because of it's incredible content creation abilities. It is constantly being developed further and has a very large user base. Whenever Drupal updates we will update soon after so you will always be up -to-date with Drupal's codebase.
Increase your app library!
Our seamless integration lets you run Drupal and all its native & 3rd party apps/modules right alongside Joomla's apps. You'll never have to worry again about missing out on a cool Drupal feature or a cool Joomla feature. You'll have them all at your fingertips with Droomla! Droomla instantly increases your extension library by over 7,000 apps... and they work out of the box!
Easily Migrate a Drupal site to Joomla!
Whether you are a Drupal fan or not, you have to admit there are opportunities to get new clients if you could migrate a Drupal site into Joomla!. Your customers don't have to learn a new interface for their content and you can use the CMS you know and love. No need to learn how to build Drupal templates either since it completely integrates into your Joomla! template.
Want to get really crazy? Install Wordpress for Joomla! as well and make your site a DroomlaPress site! They all work seamlessly together. That's all three of the top open-source CMS's together in one site! How is that for a feature-rich CMS?
- PHP 5.2.6 or higher
- MySQL 4.1 or higher
- cURL must be enabled
- open_basedir and safe_mode must be disabled.
A much more powerful & robust Blog for your site
Easily build a professional blog that comes standard with features currently missing from Joomla! — such as built-in commenting, tags, sharing & bookmarks. No more need to buy & configure pricey 3rd party social/commenting add-ons for your Joomla Blog. It's already built into Droomla.
A Product Catalog for your store
Easily create and manage a catalog of products and sell them through merchant accounts like PayPal or Google Checkout. Joomla cannot do this very well, but by harnessing the power of Drupal add-ons inside Joomla, creating your own store is a snap.
Unlimited Nested Categories capability
Why is this important? Now you can easily add subcategories to your news, blog posts, directories & product catalogs for better browsing and SEO!
Build a professional news/magazine-structured content site, like People.com, NYTimes.com, washingtontimes.com & more.
Manage downloads or documents
Give your users a way to securely download media, white papers & documents on your site. Joomla cannot do this out of the box, but it sure can with Droomla!
JCE editor inside Droomla
One of the major drawbacks of Drupal is the content editors that are available for it. Since we are use to the power and flexibility of JCE, we added support for it to work inside of Droomla so you won't miss a beat when writing content.
Joomla! Template Integration & Layout Control
We have made sure that Droomla integrates as seamless as possible with your Joomla! template. Since the integration is created using MVC architecture you can create a template override to tweak any part of the output exactly how you would like it. For layout control the CCK area is incredibly powerful inside Droomla. You can create your layouts and such on the fly and all modules harness the core functionality.
