    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”)

    It’s decent. Adding “static pages” (one-off page controller scripts) is quite easy. Suitable for most common types of websites. Any specific questions?

    I thought so.

    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.
