Newspaper Open Source CMS


Open Source Websites for Newspapers

Save up to 70% vs. proprietary and get a better website.

Open Source CMS is a considerably better website value for community newspapers than what 1up, TownNews or other proprietary vendors offer.

When you compare the values – included features, hosting and tech support – Open Source wins hands down.  Drupal open source solution through SurfNewMedia.com is the best total value in the newspaper industry.

Just read the first two paragraphs of www.drupal.org, you will get the feel of the energy
of millions of users and 1000s of developers constantly making it better.  Proprietary vendors cannot match this pace of development.

“Open source meant that we not only had the developers we hired working for us, but thousands of Drupal coders creating modules that we could use…. Drupal to us was the most flexible, cost efficient answer without having to sacrifice quality.”

We have taken the Drupal modules and put them together to create over 250 community newspaper websites, including dailies and groups.

The modules in Drupal work well together; they’re designed that way.  If you want to add a free e-edition or photo gallery module, it’s free with an already available module to add to your website.  It’s that easy, proprietary vendors would charge you extra every month.

Get a better newspaper website, plus you can save about 70% vs. the proprietary vendors.  Don’t get trapped into what the expensive vendors offer when you can get a much better solution available with a great future at a cost much lower cost.   Get a free quote on your website, it’s worth the comparing
