The Drupal CMS (PHP, GPL) allows you to assemble powerful web sites instead of writing them from scratch. It supports custom inter-related data types, configurable views and summaries of all content, user-generated content, search, user accounts, roles, media handling, and much more. Thousands of contributed modules provide all kinds of functionality.Eventually, though, many sites need custom functionality.
