Our CMS of choice

Over the years WordPress has become our CMS (content management system) of choice for more and more of the website design projects we work on here at O’Brien Media. As various businesses use WordPress, the variety of WordPress sites grows. Large enterprise businesses all the way down to small local businesses: we’ve used WordPress to power their sites.

From Drupal to WordPress at O’Brien Media

A few years ago, when Drupal 8 was announced and it became obvious that support for Drupal 7 would end soon we started to switch a lot of our customers’ websites from Drupal to WordPress, which has given a greater amount of control over their websites to our customers.
