Since there are a lot of WP gurus here – should I use WP instead of EE as a CMS? I don’t build blogs, so the “blogging part” of WP seems unnecessary. And the client should do the content updates.
For you who have experience of both – which is the main difference when developing a site? Truth to tell, I’m really like the EE way: create static pages, create the channels and then add some little code to show the channels content.
I use Kirby as a CMS. I don’t have to deal with databases. For updates, it’s as simple as replacing a folder without having to worry about plugins breaking. Although it does use PHP, I find it much simpler and easier to understand than WordPress, especially custom fields and pulling in content from other pages.
For clients, the Panel is really simple ( really really simple) to use and customize.
