Drupal Association members fund grants that make connections all over the world.
I am developing a website/portal for a large group of Civil Society organisations (CSOs). The portal is aimed eventually accommodation all the NGOs in the country.
I am a joomla addict and would like to use joomla for this project.How my instint tells me drupal is better for this project
Below I list the features expected.
If it was you would you use drupal or Joomla?
If I use Drupal what modules would I need. I have been learning Drupal but cannot say I can kick ass yet
The portal will seek to document;
Tools for CSOs- Eg for monitoring & Evaluation etc
Free emails accounts for stakeholders. (using google apps)
Relevant documents collected from stakeholders. (should be able to download directly)
should be able to post Videos uploaded on you tube for example
It will also consist of news updated daily,
human compiled and updated directory for all CSOs in the country
Social Networking community for users
Blogging service for users
Each CSO should have their area where they can post info about themselves
Should be able to form discussion groups around different themes
Create and share documents, spreadsheets and presentations.
Arrange meetings, set schedules, and publish event information.
Instant message with co-workers and make PC-to-PC voice calls for free.
Preview calendar and docs, add gadgets and search the web from one place (integrate with Google APPS probably)
customizable user roles and permissions
tools members can use to self-organize
Very attractive and functional interface.
Intuitive navigation since some users are green in IT.
The ability to evolve as the community evolves
A light system since some users will have a slow connection and use dial up with very little width
there should be only one log in for all services
Notice I have pick some features which i know exists in one or both CMS.
Let me have you views
Feels stupid that my first question on this forum is so egocentric
