The free, open-source, and widely used Drupal CMS bubbled to the surface over WordPress and many other platforms. Like Wordpress, Drupal is supported by thousands of developers. Unlike Wordpress, the plug-in modules are free and can be customized by the site developer. The database is fully accessible by rules-driven logic which satisfied our requirement to apply complex data analysis.
A category taxonomy was created enabling the editors to designate an article's placement. A search function, named Facility Finder, was developed that satisfied the visitor-access requirement of locating any actively-licensed assisted living facility in the state.
The site has been successfully active since 2009.
