[CMS] WordPress alternative

  • # February 8, 2014 at 3:46 am

    hey Guys!

    As this is my first post here in css-tricks board i would like to say big hello ;) but to the main topic – I was developing my clients websites on wordpress for last several years. It was ok, but last time i’ve realized that this cms is going to a way which is let say.. not inlined with my needs. starting from 3.8 admin panel looks really confusing etc. so ive started looking into wp alternatives. What i am looking for:
    + high performance + stability,
    + easy to adapt with design (quite often i am developing single page layouts our on the other hand complicated sites with many templates)
    + good community support

    do you have any experiance with other stuff? would be cool if this cms will be opensource as well. I was looking into silverstripe, movabletools and concrete5 but still.. not sure which will be the best.

    thanks for any advices!

    Best,
    Pawel

    Craft (newer, but made by the awesome guys at Pixel & Tonic who also make tons of high-quality add-ons for ExpressionEngine)

    ExpressionEngine

    Kirby!

    Oh and it also comes with its own cheat sheet. Ha.

    Check out http://processwire.com/ – fast and easy to use :)

    With all custom fields, an easy-to-use jQuery-inspired API, and a powerful selector engine, ProcessWire will rise to any task.

    sorry for asking here but @chrisburton would you recommend Kirby for a restaurant website where updating/adding of new menu is done often.

    @taxicss Absolutely. There is a Panel (similar to WordPress admin) that allows the client to add content. You will also find custom post types and fields are much much easier to integrate than WordPress.

    If you need help, please don’t hesitate to post here in the forum.

    You should check out this list which includes Statamic, Concrete 5, Perch, Habari, and ExpressionEngine. http://www.wiredtree.com/blog/5-content-management-systems-you-should-know-about/ I would also consider taking a look at Ghost or Craft. Hope this helps.
