We specialize primarily in WordPress and Drupal sites. Often we find ourselves converting sites from one platform to another. For example, Drupal excels with handling user accounts and granular permissions, whereas WordPress offers a much simpler admin interface and writing experience.

The following is a table of common site features and their Drupal and WordPress counterparts in case you find yourself needing to go between platforms. All the Drupal modules and WordPress plugins can be found on http://www.drupal.org and http://www.wordpress.org respectively. This list does not include any “premium” or paid plugins that can be found elsewhere.
