FAQs

Drupal is a proven and secure open-source CRM platform that offers a staggering level of customization to virtually any company. While other CRM systems may provide more extensive built-in toolsets, Drupal CRM offers solid core functionality and easy integration with countless other applications, extensions, and third-party tools for a truly customizable CRM experience.

Drupal is an entirely free, open-source content management system. Savvy developers can easily tailor the Drupal 8 platform to their exact specifications, working in third-party applications and other resources to build an integrated, multifunctional, and secure content management system. The Drupal community also provides extensive robust support for the platform, offering countless free updates, additional modules, and special themes to help your brand showcase your personality and attract ideal clients. Drupal 8, the latest version of the Drupal content management system, is the most accessible and most powerful version of the system to date, with multilingual support as well as the flexibility required to build your own web applications from your own computer. Drupal conforms to your needs, sets up within minutes, and allows virtually limitless flexibility in designing a content management system that works for your brand.

Countless enterprises rely on the robust Drupal 8 content management system, and Drupal 9 is an updated and upgraded version of Drupal that builds upon the successful elements of Drupal 8. Drupal 9 is essentially a cleaned-up version of Drupal 8. The development team behind Drupal 9 are dropping out deprecated code while updating third-party dependencies. Drupal 9 was built almost entirely in Drupal 8 using optional updated dependency support as well as deprecated code sections. The streamlined Drupal 9 will feature all the functionality Drupal 8 users are accustomed to enjoying without deprecations for a more compact and robust content management system. The current release timeframe is June 3, 2020, and Drupal 9 will launch alongside a minor release of Drupal 8 with long-term support.

Drupal 9 will release with almost identical features to the final minor release of Drupal 8, which will launch with long-term support. Just like Drupal 8, Drupal 9 will release new features every six months following the launch of Drupal 9.0. Users can expect the same level of additional functionality as they enjoyed with Drupal 8 updates with Drupal 9.1, 9.2, and so on. The most important benefit of Drupal 9 over Drupal 8 is the additional security fixes supported by the Drupal 9 platform after November of 2021. Another key benefit of upgrading to Drupal 9 is the ease with which upgrading is possible. From Drupal 9.1 and beyond, users will enjoy an even wider range of additional features and functionalities.

Drupal modules are collections of files written in PHP code that execute within the Drupal platform. Drupal modules use the same code as the core system, allowing them to use all of the variables, functions, and structures of the Drupal core. The benefit of using Drupal modules is that it is possible to individually create these PHP files and test them to drive multiple functionalities.

Hosting is a major concern for any web developer. It’s essential to find a hosting platform that offers support for all the different applications used to run a website. Finding a Drupal hosting website is relatively simple. Drupal only requires PHP and Mysql to run efficiently, and most leading web hosting providers offer this compatibility. However, Drupal-specific hosting services generally offer a much better level of service for Drupal websites. Special Drupal hosting platforms typically provide faster speeds, better server infrastructure, more robust Drupal support, preinstalled Drupal tools, and safer hosting. Drupal is flexible enough to work with virtually any leading hosting platform, but Drupal developers should strive to connect with Drupal-specific hosting partners.

SPINX has extensive experience with Drupal development and can help you capitalize on the strengths of this incredibly versatile and flexible CRM platform. We develop comprehensive individualized solutions for every client we serve. We also believe in intimate communication and take time to get to know your brand, your market, and your competition to deliver a fully custom-tailored CRM solution.

While other web development firms may offer expert services with some of the mainstay web development options, SPINX has experience with customized solutions for enterprises of all sizes in virtually all industries. We understand that a one-size-fits-all solution doesn’t work for modern businesses, so that is not the approach we take when it comes to serving our clients.

Other CRM platforms may seem like they offer more robust capabilities, but this is only surface-level functionality. Few other CRM platforms can match the versatility, flexibility, or compatibility with third-party tools that Drupal offers. The Drupal core systems create the foundation for a flexible and responsive CRM environment. SPINX can help you configure additional applications and third-party tools to your exact specifications.

Yes, we can! Migrating to any new CRM system can be stressful. Still, the Drupal platform makes it easy with seamless integration options, extensive compatibility with leading third-party tools and applications, and countless customization options. Many businesses use WordPress for its affordability and range of options, but the Drupal platform offers more versatility.

One of the best aspects of Drupal is the fantastic open source community behind it, which helps to enforce and uphold the code conventions of the Drupal platform. The Drupal community’s Drupal Coding Standards apply within Drupal and every related module. If your development team wants to contribute to the Drupal community or develop Drupal modules for your enterprise, they will need to follow the Drupal Coding Standards for any submission.

You may feel tempted to hack into Drupal’s core files, but the Drupal community strongly recommends that you do not attempt to alter any of Drupal’s core files to adjust your site. The team at SPINX heeds this warning, and we will not modify any of the Drupal core files for your website. Instead, we’ll leverage the flexibility of the Drupal platform to develop a customized CRM solution for your enterprise.

Drupal offers one of the best multilingual experiences available from a CRM platform. SPINX can help you choose the best base language for the platform; most use English, but if you want your site to run in multiple languages, you’ll need to select a different base language and adjust accordingly. SPINX will help you configure language support to your enterprise’s needs.

The Drupal platform is flexible thanks to its secure foundational construction of four central Cores. While the core Drupal system may not have as many features as other leading CRM solutions, the advantage lies in the vast assortment of compatible extensions, applications, and third-party tools you can integrate with Drupal.

If you want to leverage the power of the Drupal platform for your enterprise, contact SPINX today to schedule a consultation. Drupal offers an incredible degree of customization, and SPINX can help you leverage this versatility to maximum effect.

Templates are a big part of Drupal development, and many Drupal developers want something more than the standard PHPTemplate. In Drupal 8, Twig replaces PHPTemplate and becomes the new default templating engine. Twig is part of the Symfony2 framework and a PHP template engine, changing the theme_* functions and PHP based  *.tpl.php files with Twig’s *.html.twig templating files. Drupal 8 currently uses Twig 1.x, but Drupal versions 8.7 and later are compatible with Twig 2.x. If a user wishes to focus on future-compatible themes, it’s vital to refrain from using deprecated Twig 1.x assets and focus on Twig 2.x assets instead. The Twig templating engine also comes with an intuitive debug tool that allows for quick identification of templates generating markups.
