Should I use WordPress, Drupal, or some other CMS?

Web Development Services recommends the Drupal-powered Princeton Site Builder platform for websites for University departments, programs, centers, and events. OpenScholar, a Drupal distribution for academic scholars, is our recommendation for faculty, staff, researcher, or lab sites. We recommend WordPress for student organizations and department-sponsored blog sites.

For personal sites, especially if you plan on maintaining the site after your time at Princeton, GitHub Pages is an excellent solution.

Above all, we recommend that you use the website building system that you and your colleagues are most comfortable with.

OIT has published the Knowledge Base article, “I need a website. What are my options?”
