I’m thinking about trying this cms out on a new site and I’m wondering if anyone has had any experience with it and has any input on it. Here’s the link if you haven’t seen it before. [Concrete5.](http://www.concrete5.org “http://www.concrete5.org”)
Is it pretty easy to pick up? I have a small 6 to 8 page site and they want to be able to edit it themselves. I was going to just do wordpress since it’s what I know, but they definitely don’t need that type of power, just the ability to swap out images and have editable content areas. Do you think Concrete5 would be more suitable for this?
Concrete isn’t a “lightweight alternative” to WP, though. Just like WP, it’s as heavy as you make it (add-ons, custom code efficiency, etc.). I’m not a heavy WP user (not a heavy Concrete user, either, really), so I couldn’t compare the two performance-wise.
Having said that, however, I don’t think either would be “overkill.” Concrete feels more “basic” (in a comfortable way), has an active dev/support community, and is fairly intuitive to use.
