What is Concrete5 CMS?
Concrete5 is a "Content Management System" (CMS). CMS's allow you to make updates to your website yourself, without needing to delve into the HTML to make changes.
We believe that Concrete5 is the best CMS in the market, because it has been designed to be really easy and intuitive to use. "In-context" editing means you edit your websites' pages on the "front-end", as you look at them.
Concrete5 also has an intelligent search built in so that you don't need to go hunting all around the system to find what you are looking for.
Please check the Concrete5 Features page for more information about what Concrete5 has to offer.
When you edit your website, nearly everything you do will be done on the "front-end", as you view the site. This is called "in-context editing" and is one of Concrete5's main USP's. The drag n drop content, WYSIWYG editing and point and click layout options, this is why our clients love Concrete5!
Concrete5 is cutting edge technology, using PHP7 and supporting mobile, responsive images etc. With modular components called "blocks" you can easily add content to various places in your pages. Concrete5 pagetypes are flexible and allow you to quickly and easily add the right content to your site. Concrete5 is futureproof, fully supported by the most common technologies - PHP, MySQL, Apache, Nginx, Litespeed.
Concrete5 is an Open Source technology, which means there are no per-licence charges and anyone can use it and modify it to their hearts content. The Concrete5 community has hundreds of thousands of members globally and there are many Concrete5 developers in the UK, like us!
