There is no doubt about it, Concrete5 is our absolute, number one favorite CMS.
There are hundreds of free and paid CMS and we've probably tried half of them. The thing we love about Concrete5 is that it ticks all the boxes for web developers and front-end users.
Concrete5 is an extremely user-friendly CMS that supports a wide variety of uses.
- Company Website
- Membership Forum
It was developed to make it easy for site owners to add pages, change the layout, and edit content by themselves right on the page.
There is no guesswork or coding skills required.
Need to edit content? Put the page into edit mode, click on the content and make your changes right on the page so you can see how they will look on the live website.
Want to add a video, graphics, or Google map? Drag the block from the sidebar and drop it where you want it on the page.
Concrete5 may not have as many plugins as WordPress, but it doesn't need to.
Almost every task the average user needs to do is either built-in or part of the existing add-on library.
More importantly, Concrete5 oversights all plugins in the repository so you never run into broken or incompatible apps. And if a third-party plugin isn't maintained it is removed from the add-on library.
