Thunder - Drupal for Publishers
Online publishing made easy with Drupal and Thunder - the Drupal-based CMS by publishers for publishers.
Thunder is a Drupal based online publishing solution that has been developed by the publishing industry for the publishing industry. It builds upon the current Drupal CMS functionality and incorporates many useful modules from publishers and industry partners, with the possibility to easily develop and add new functionality.
