Re: Drupal and Microsoft CMS Options?

Thanks Jamal: Question, are you developing for Drupal, your NonVisualDevelopment site, on your local machine and, if so, is it a Windows OS running something like xampp or a version of the IIS installation procedure? Do you have a duel boot machine or how do you work on your website prior to uploading the html, db stuff or event processors?

Hi Rick,
Here is the web site of an ASP.NET-based CMS:

DotNetNuke - The Leading Open Source Web Content Management Platform for ASP.NET -

Hi Gang: Jim, I don't know just yet. My preference would be to just learn whatever Jamal is doing but I am now thinking of putting up some sites for some blind folks so their sites are kept up to date and work well with screen readers so I am not sure about the scope of my involvement. It might be Drupal based or, more likely if really accessible, something in the Microsoft venu since I am familiar with their DB stuff and coding websites using various ASP Controls and Server Side coding technicals. For development I might use one of the packages Jacques or Katherine mentioned but I can start reading up on them to get some color on what this stuff is all about.
Hay, Jacques, are you French? If so, are you from across the pond?
Later and thanks for the ideas to explore.

 Look at both Umbraco and Mojo Portal.

 Subject: Drupal and Microsoft CMS Options?



Hi: I know very little about CMS. As a result of Jamal using it, I have looked at some of the Drupal docs by googling but am having trouble wrapping my head around exactly how it all works since I am an old Microsoft user. I am trying to figure out a similar option in the Microsoft World. So far I think that Sharepoint and Open Office, both 2010 versionws with accessibility, sound like they are the Microsoft counterpart to Drupal. does this sound about right? Since they support ARIA and the other new Web Standards, or at least some articles say they do, has anyone tried them out? If there is another Microsoft thingy where it looks or works sort of a CMS with DB storage and perhaps Media support could you mention it so I can do a little more digging?

It looks like allot of blind folks are trying to use various CMS Websites and most of them are pretty bad. They also sound almost as complex to create and maintain as a standard Website developed in something like VWD. Anyway, thanks for any input you provide on CMS, Drupal or any Microsoft counterpart products that I can research a little more.

Again, the Microsoft 2010 versions of the Open Office and Sharepoint are suppose to be accessible where the older versions were not very accessible if that helps.
