You guys have a bad learning curve

Permalink
I used concrete 5 when it just came out.. It was a breeze. Now you guys have gone and made so many changes its pretty hard to have the easiest things done without looking all around the web for tutorials.
I know its free but then again, if its free and 'useless' who values it..

Maybe it would be helpful for other people if you listed up some things that you think are hard to achieve. So this could potentially be improved in the future.

It may just be because I am a hardcore user of c5, but I still find things easier that most other systems that are capable of what c5 can do. (try and find something in joomla)

info on what you are having trouble with would be helpful.

I've only come to C5 recently, so I don't have anything to compare with your experience of previous versions.

I've developed in Wordpress, Joomla! and Concrete5. My reaction to them all is this. If you want to do a blog, use Wordpress. If you want to do a complete website, then any of the environments is going to take some time learning. My experience with WP & J! is that the one's time is spent largely learning workarounds. With C5, it's learning the underlying framework. If I have a choice, I'd rather do the latter.

But, I'd echo other responders and ask what you feel contributes to a steep learning curve -- no doubt that it exists.
