Confluence provides expert assistance in the creation of websites using the open source Content Management System, Drupal. From our perspective, the decision of whether to use Joomla! or Drupal depends on a variety of factors, such as:
- Expertise of the implementation partner
- Existing familiarity with one system or another
- Specific functional requirements
- Other systems that the CMS needs to integrate with
- Whether the website is already implemented in Drupal or not -- it rarely makes sense to move from one system to another if a big investment has already been made in one
For an extra-low-cost website project, we can help you choose a Drupal theme and customize it to be consistent with your mission, branding and preferences. Or, we can create a brand new Drupal theme from scratch.

For WateReuse Association, we upgraded the aging CiviCRM and Drupal environment to current versions, including significant new extensions and added functionality.
Missouri Credit Union Association
For the Missouri Credit Union Association, we migrated their website to Drupal 7 and replaced their CRM (Computility) to CiviCRM to provide a better web access to manage their members and increase the efficiency of business processing. In addition we also implemented a single-sign-on for Drupal and Infosight.
National Women's Health Network
The National Women's Health Network (NWHN) was not satisfied with the design of their Drupal-powered website, so they asked Confluence to help them perform a face-lift of the design within a tight budget. Using the freely available Jackson theme for Drupal, Confluence made a number of changes to the overall design of the theme and implemented them along with several changes to the functionality of the site. NWHN now enjoys the ability to easily manage their homepage content--particularly the slideshow--and they are now able to more effectively keep their entire site up-to-date.
MD & DC Credit Union Association
For the MD & DC Credit Union Association, we upgraded the aging CiviCRM installation, replacing the existing Expression Engine CMS with Drupal for trouble-free single-sign on, recommending, designing and implementing enhancements to increase the efficiency of business processing.
Enterprise Wireless Alliance
Confluence was responsible for migration of legacy membership management system to CiviCRM and is currently assisting with maintenance and support for the new Drupal website along with CiviCRM.
For Peace Action, we implemented a custom design as a Drupal theme and built in numerous dynamic functionalities, including custom-tailored landing pages which retrieve feeds from other areas of the website as well as external sources. The design has also been modified to work as a Salsa web template, which allows users to switch between Drupal and Salsa pages without ever knowing the difference.
