Earlier this month, Adrian Speyer wrote a great blog post about why he prefers concrete5 to WordPress. Adrian still likes WordPress, but he thinks "if non-technical user content manipulation is a major concern, Concrete5 is the best option."
Some of the features of concrete5 that he loves:
- It's super easy to build with, once you get the hang of things.
- It has fine granular control for user permissions.
- Upgrading is smooth.
- It's extremely user friendly for the non-techincal user once it's set up.
- The Marketplace. There are tons of things free for use with the core Concrete5, including themes and add-ons galore. The prices are more than fair and reasonable. If you are a coder yourself you can sell or offer for free your own upgrades as well.
