WordPress is probably the most popular, and commonly used CMS in the industry, however, Concrete5 is our preferred CMS to develop our websites on. One of the main reasons we prefer this platform over some of the other popular ones is because of its usability; it’s incredibly easy for our clients to use due to the handy drag and drop builder, which means once we’ve done our work, the client can then update and maintain their website themselves, with no trouble.
But it’s not just because it’s simple to use. Concrete5 has a whole host of great features and benefits that allows it to go head to head with the likes of WordPress and other CMS platforms. No matter what topic you look at, whether it’s security, administration or the update mechanism, the differences between WordPress and Concrete5 aren’t so distinct and it’s very difficult to declare WordPress the Superior platform.
Let’s look at some of the features that makes us love Concrete5 so much.
The Editing feature allows for easy customisation without the need for coding. The sky is the limit when it comes to creativity, meaning you can get the site looking exactly as you want it. The vast array of add ons makes it so simple to extend and expand your website whilst also allowing for increased functionality.
Many users struggle with creating forms and surveys because with a lot of platforms, you need to incorporate intricate coding. With Concrete5, there is an integrated form builder which allows you to create, edit and update forms and surveys in the blink of an eye. No coding necessary!
Managing users of your site is also really straightforward with Concrete5 Permissions and you can allow different access to different users and groups.
Have we convinced you of our love for Concrete5 yet? The above features, coupled with its extremely straight forward usability, makes it our preferred choice of CMS.
