    Hi Rahul,

    I wish all these plugins were available on Drupal CMS as well. I believe some of them might be but certainly not all. You see my diet blog is built on Drupal, not on WP so I am missing out on the plethora of plugins available in the WP community.

    I chose Drupal over WP when I started my weight loss blog because at that time the “social” and “community” aspect was stronger in Drupal than in WP, and since I wanted my blog to have a “social” character (i.e dieters talking about their experiences with weight loss programs, sharing coupons for popular diet plans, like Weight Watchers, Medifast and Nutrisystem, etc) I chose Drupal over WP. Mistake… anyway, I am rambling!

    Great list Rahul

    • @Matthew: I don’t get my chance to get enough hands on Drupal so can’t suggest you to choose which one – apologize for this. Well all i have to say you are missing lots of things as WordPress is too good right now.

  • Sidiney Gomes Blog

    • @Sidney Gomes: Well i try my level best to use less plugins. Sorry i can’t help you in this
