Web development is the process of adding, modifying or improving the functionality of a web site. Drupal boasts a collection of over 10,000 'add-on' modules extending functionality. Likewise, WordPress offers a wide assortment of plugins and widgets customizing your web site.
Drupal modules and WordPress plugins, freely available, significantly reduce time and labor of web development. The task of web development is narrowed down to finding the best 'add-on' for the particular type of functionality you desire. Such is the beauty of content management systems.
Whether it's eCommerce or just blogging, themes are defined and categorized by functionality. Each comes prepackaged with the 'add ons' giving the theme it's specific purpose. The advantages of the 'add on' concept is a theme's purpose can expand into other categories. A particular theme can work well for a school or a corporation depending on what combinations of 'add ons' are used. Understanding this concept is important.
When shopping for a theme, you may favor a design but question if the defined functionality will suit your needs. Functionality can be changed by adding or removing plugins and modules.
Occasionally, Drupal modules or WordPress plugins need modification to suit a specific need. Or, changes such as updates can offset the necessity to modify another module or plugin. Open Source projects such as Drupal or WordPress are made up of vibrant communities working together to modify and improve web development. Cyber Teknic works with the Open Source coummunities to resolve such issues.
On a rare occasion, a module or plugin needs coding from scratch. Third party vendors are available at a lower cost of labor for coding such a project.
