Project Description

I'm a Systems Architect with a large web development shop looking to add another developer to out development team. I'm currently re-evaluating our platform of choice - we use Drupal 7 and the debate is whether to move to Wordpress. What I’m trying to wrap my head around is where are the actual limitations (if any) of Wordpress vs Drupal. Then we can decide whether we are better off going for 100% WP, 100% Drupal or a mix.

The project at hand is fairly simple. We want to Convert an existing Drupal theme/site to Wordpress and make a few changes like adding CSS3 and jQuery. The idea was to create a network of affiliated sites from a single Drupal installation and shared database. We used a Drupal mod called Domain Access ([url removed, login to view]). However, it doesn't really work right. Anyway, we think it would be easier to redo the project in wordpress with the multisite feature.

You should have In-depth knowledge of wordpress and experience developing PHP applications (at least 2 yrs). Usability need to be central to your philosophy and not tacked on as an afterthought. You should understand how to get Wordpress to do exactly what is needed in the most efficient way possible. An architect with little knowledge of wordpess may look at the requirements for his system and say "aha, we need a service for querying large amounts of information from an external data store". A more experienced wordpress architect would say "aha, we need to use pods, simple-tags and Table Wizard". The experienced architect knows that contact forms can be done easily via whatever and don't require a custom plugin.

Job starts right away. Good luck!
