concrete5 – A very promising open source CMS I found!

There are a lot of open source and commercial CMS available, but concrete5 is a the most easy and intuitive one I found recently, it’s as easy and intuitive as google creator, but it’s far more powerful, the unique feature it provides is that you can edit your whole site in the WYSIWYG mode.

Note, I am saying you can?edit the whole site visually! Oppositely,??in WordPress you can edit the posts/pages with its WYSIWYG editor, but all the other elements such as header/sidebars/footer you have to setup/edit/configure them in other none-visual ways.

The down side is that is pretty new and there is not too much themes available, but I think it’s very promising!

  1. thanks!

    We just relauched our community to include a marketplace of add-ons and themes. while it still needs to grow, there’s already a lot of themes being submitted that we’re reviewing..

    there’s also a really cool new feature in 5.2 that lets you customize the css in themes on the fly, check it out:

  2. I am a professional photographer (specializing in fashion, headshot, lifestyle, corporate, etc.) and my requirements for my website is quite unique. There are some packaged CMS customized for photographers, but because I cover some unique combination of fields in photography, they don’t really work well for me. So, I had some quite convoluted website that wasn’t easy to navigate, until I came across concrete5. Now you can see my site is easy to use and working great.

    If I were to re-do my other websites, including personal ones, I’d probably use concrete5.
