Drupal is a very powerful content management system (CMS) and you can build almost every kind of website using it. Unlike WordPress, Drupal is very complex in its structure and has a steep learning curve. It has got a large community base of developers and users but one thing that drupal lacks is the availability of good themes, especially the free ones. Today where responsive themes are the necessity of a good website, Drupal has only few themes that are responsive in functionality. On the other hand WordPress has got tons of free responsive themes to choose from.
A Responsive theme is a type of theme that can adjust itself accordingly to the type device, it is viewed on. The content of the website is stacked up vertically, so that the user doesn’t have to scroll sideways on the device.
