CMS Showcase: 31 Remarkable Drupal Powered Websites

leadin_drupal.jpgFor those scratching their heads wondering what Drupal is, it’s an open-source (i.e. free) content management system that’s flexible and feature-packed. Over the last couple of years or so, it’s taken off as the go-to platform to run websites that require a lot of community and content management features. From personal blogs and brochure sites, to fully-featured social networking sites, portals, news sites, and e-commerce websites, Drupal has proven itself as the most robust platform currently available in the content management system market.

This article showcases 31 websites that run on Drupal.

A quick plug for the awesome Drupal community

I’d like to let everyone know of Drupalcon 2008 which will be in Boston between March 3-6, 2008 at the Boston Convention & Expo Center. Vote for the best design in the Showcase Contest Entries.

This was published on Feb 24, 2008


Thanks for the great information. Amazing work right there showing just how powerful a free CMS can be.

ivan from adsoftheworld Feb 24 2008

May I add mine? Not for it’s design, but for it’s relatively unique layout. Also, running on Drupal 5:

Kieran Feb 24 2008

Great list. We will be having a showcase and case study contest at, next week.

Elvis McNeely Feb 24 2008

Thanks for the showcase.

My only question to you is… Why aren’t you running on Drupal too?


Oliver Siodmak Feb 25 2008

DC Comics launched Zuda Comics ( on October 30th last year which is based on Drupal. The site hosts some really cool free web comics. Check it out. Feb 25 2008

Really nice colection.

Jacob Gube Feb 25 2008


Good question! I had originally wanted to run Six Revisions on Drupal since (1) I had more experience setting up and theming Drupal, (2) I’m a Drupal fan, (3) Drupal has a lot more community (integrated forums, user profile pages, etc.) and content management features (custom content types specifically) than WordPress.

In the end, I chose WordPress because it’s easier to custom theme and using Drupal for a blog such as Six Revisions is just overkill. I’ve contemplated on making Six Revisions a fully-featured community site for web developers and designers, a place where we can all hang out and share information, and if that ever happens I’ll be migrating to Drupal.

Kevin Quillen Feb 25 2008

Aren’t these just here for their visual merits? Any CMS application can get this job done, free or not.

Sameer Padania Feb 25 2008

I work for the human rights organization WITNESS, and we’ve also chosen Drupal for our latest project, the Hub, for human rights, video and action – – and we’re very happy with the results so far.

And our developers, Civic Actions, will be at Drupalcon and will use the Hub to showcase some of the work they’ve been doing – if you’re there, please say hello to them!

Derrick Feb 25 2008

Maybe I should migrate over from Joomla. Didn’t know so many website actually use Drupal.

Geoserv Feb 26 2008

Those are some fantastic looking websites. I just recently installed Drupal, but haven’t started designing anything yet.


Thank you for the compliment of featuring two of our Drupal designs (Favorite Things and FreshBrain). Especially considering the other heavy hitters featured such as Spread Firefox, Ubuntu and 43folders. Posts like this area really helpful marketing for Drupal as it hasn’t been known for being designer friendly. I see a lot of evidence here that says otherwise!


Andy Rechenberg Feb 26 2008


Thanks for featuring Music Integrated Clothing. This is my first full-fledged Drupal site with a theme that was designed from the ground up. Our friend who is a web designer mocked up the site in Photoshop and then I converted the miockup to a Drupal theme.

Considering I’m not a web developer or PHP coder by trade, it’s an honor to have our site here with these other great sites. I think that really shows how Drupal can be both easy and powerful with which to work.

Thanks again,
Andy Rechenberg

I’ve been really pleased since I moved my site to Drupal. I’ve started to contribute back to the project with my first plugin called Comment Luv – a Drupal version of the popular WordPress plugin.

The german confession equivalent to grouphug would be – which is also based on drupal.

Wow. Those sites have very, very fine designs indeed. But those gotta cost quite a lot huh.

Thank’s for your great information it’s useful to me

Raseel Nov 18 2008

Wow !! I dont belive I actually passed Drupal earlier for Joomla. My Bad.

Gadget Techie Nov 21 2008

well i tried using drupal before as well.. but i ended up with joomla because i think it is easier to control

john morgon Dec 10 2008

Joomla and Drupal are equally good to use, thanks for the info on here

I considered using Drupal way back when, and just didn’t get it and then tried Joomla, which admittedly did most things straight out of the box.

But I just didn’t like the way you had to create content, and the way it displayed it back.

After two or three websites I went back to drupal and built a number of increasingly complicated websites, figured out views and cck and that was it then.

Joomla isn’t a patch on Drupal, once you’ve got it. So if your thinking of switching look for screencasts on cck and views.

Any way – I’d like to put forward my drupal website for the showcase. It’s a English football team news and community portal for a newspapers Stoke City Football Club news “Why Delilah”

Eric Carter Mar 03 2009

Wow tons of great ideas here, thanks for sharing.

Topmen Mar 16 2009

Thanks for the helpful information!

Brad West Apr 02 2009

I said yesterday I really didn’t need another site. This is one great collection. The third time it had come up in my searches I had to comment.
Thanks for the tease.

Talk About Debt May 16 2009

Drupal has been the perfect CMS for use. Talk About Debt was the 4th site we put on drupal and what’s impressed me is the number of modules available and the ease of which we developed on top to create our ‘best advice’ calculator which has some complicated bespoke logic.

gaus surahman May 19 2009

Ah, I can understand that you missed my site. That’s okay :) I wasn’t even there when you posted this. Thanks for sorting.

Andrew May 28 2009

I have been doing some research on Drupal products as I have become a great fan. Thanks for sharing this information-look forward to hearing more soon.

Jamie T Aug 11 2009

Some of these sites are amazing! Another site I’ll recommend for the list is It has a very nice, clean, and organized look. The site teaches about Content Management Systems too. But thanks for this list. I love Drupal!

Craig Aug 11 2009

good stuff guys Oct 09 2009

Your post is very nice and interesting, thanks !

Sullivan Oct 21 2009

WOW! So much for Drupal being a programmers paradise and a designers nightmare. Those are some good looking sites!

I personally use Joomla, but now that I know Drupal sites can look like that I’m going to have to branch out.

I’ve recently had the pleasure of working on a commercial Drupal project, and it’s simply brilliant.

accommodation kensington london Nov 05 2009

I should try Drupal it looks neet.

Jamie Nov 09 2009

Awesome list! Thanks

But I think you need to remove as it is being directed to pornographic references.

identum Nov 16 2009

Nice list – it really shows perfect examples, what you can do with drupal. We just launched a drupal 6 based online community for Austrian modern daddies

Carlos Carvalhar Nov 28 2009

Juegos Jan 28 2010

I have my personal blog with Drupal. It works great!

Wow… I never thought those websites would look so great with Drupal… I had tried to set up Drupal on my website but found it a bit lot of work so insteads, I obviously took the easy path of WordPress. Thanks for opening my eyes and I will make go for another try with Drupal soon!

CSS Freak Feb 02 2010

nice list, folders is the best of this collection! WordPress ruleZZ!^^

Andrea Vee Mar 08 2010

Love this post, although i am beginning to think that Drupal, WordPress, and Joomla are beginning to cramp our style (ok, maybe not in the case of these unique sites) I think web designers need to start thinking creatively, and with their customers’ best interests in mind. Using css galleries and website portfolios to generate ideas (and steal concepts) is just lessening the impact truly amazing web design could have. We all need to be unique, insightful, and most of all CREATIVE!

I use Joomla and WordPress to build my sites, but recently I’ve been looking more and more towards Drupal. I think it will take longer to accomodate to it’s requirements but I’ve heard it’ll be worth it.

Kettles and Toasters Apr 15 2010

Spread Firefox looks really impressive! Looks better than many of the best WP blog designs that I have seen.

brent Apr 28 2010

Very imformative post. These are all great designes. Which is easier to implement into a site built in photoshop and then transferred to dreamweaver. Drupal or Joomla?

Paddy May 21 2010

Hi guys, ive learned to design through dreamweaver and php, what can drupal do in comparison to dreamweaver or dose it work with dreamweaver? excuse my ignorance never used cms b4

plywood May 21 2010

Designzillas Jun 21 2010

Great list, these websites are fantastic!

We are an Web design agency based out of Orlando that just relaunched our website in Drupal:

We’re obsessed with everything Drupal and would be open to your thoughts on our design as well. Thanks again, and it’s nice to be *officially* a part of the Drupal community :)

Chris Jul 01 2010

Some great looking sites here – Drupal has gone up in my opinion!

Emmanuel Peterson Jul 24 2010

Those are truly cool websites. I am going to learn how to put up one of those. Thanks for the showcase.

Ravaka Aug 24 2010

Hey, do not forget that the White house website is built with Drupal…

Craig Aug 25 2010

Great list with some of the big players using it.

Some more great Drupal sites at the blog of its founder, Dries Buytaert:

Rencontre Sep 01 2010

My signature was also made with Drupal, also, to name a few french sites.
My two cents. Sep 03 2010

That’s a great collection! Wow. Nice job!

Wonder why Drupal is not the #1 favorite. I am using it for my website…but most of them prefer WordPress though I am not a great fan of it!

VladoMire Sep 12 2010

Nice collection of Drupal sites. It will help many who are looking for a suitable CMS and doubt, decide in favor of Drupal. I love Drupal very much. My Website is too Drupal site.

Mark Tinger Sep 19 2010

There are lots of reputation companies about. Only one sticks out with results and people behind them. I have used them twice and the results are just fine. No problems, would recommend anytime.

Michael Oct 12 2010

Awesome list! Really shows the great things that can be accomplished with Drupal.

ronny Oct 17 2010

can anyone suggest a good looking modern template for a football related website using drupal and if possible a link to that site.

I need live football feeds as well so that needs to be taken inot account.

thanks ron

Stefan Oct 28 2010

I like Drupal as well, it´s a powerful and flexible CMS

andy eaton Nov 08 2010

Darn you!!!

Here I am a die-hard WordPress fan and I run across this post.

Now I’m going to need to buy a new domain name and give Drupal a try.

The sites you highlighted are spectacular, several of which I visit regularly.

I had no idea they were powered by Drupal.

Thank you for teaching this old dog a new lesson.

John Doe Jan 19 2011

I admire the valuable information you offer in your articles. I will bookmark your blog. I am quite sure they will learn lots of new stuff here than anybody else!

Some really cool sites you’ve got listed. I would have never found them.

Nathan Feb 09 2011

how about
It looks pretty cool and I think it’s a first-ever web application platform site for Drupal.

Great post. Drupal looks like a great alternative from the wordpress format. I’ve got to take a closer look at using it when putting up my next blog site. Thanks for the information

betclic Feb 28 2011

Luke Bull Mar 04 2011

So true drupal really has taken off. Whilst it took me a bit to get the hang of itafter a bit of usage it becomes second nature. Some of these sites are amazing though !

Aleksandar Nikolic Mar 23 2011

Very interesting post. It gives new ideas!

Cameron Mar 25 2011

Great showcase Six. With Drupal 7 they’ve made a great step towards the WordPress generation of developers, but the reality is, until Drupal connects with the designers who can code they’ll always be playing catch-up.

Come on Drupal connect the dots…

Netpaths Mar 28 2011

These article showcases are great work for Drupal sites.

Thanks for this cool article about drupal.

Great collection of Drupal sites. Shows the power and flexibility Drupal can provide for a whole range of different types of sites.

Ill definitely check drupal out! Do you know of any web design orlando that specialize in drupal?

Bamboo Aug 04 2011

kathryn Oct 17 2011

I don’t know if it’s just me or if everyone else experiencing problems
with your website. It looks like some of the
written text on your posts are running off the screen.
Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well?
This might be a issue with my internet browser because I’ve had this happen before. Thanks
