Concrete5 CMS is getting more popular yet not as popular as other big players like WordPress or Joomla! Possibly due to not as large advertising as the other big CMS softwares that are available. It’s close to a drag and drop style builder where you can edit content directly on the page and not through a back end interface like other programs.
Concrete5 is open source and is a content management system (CMS) that is loved around the world. Unlike other CMS programs it was not designed as a blogging platform first but a fully fledged website design, build and maintenance program for anyone with no technical knowledge. Included for free on most hosting companies control panels or it should be as it is open source. There are many hosting companies to choose from that offer Concrete5, most commonly as a 1-click-install.
This simply means the application is in the control panel and it is simply a case of clicking install for it to be installed directly to your domain name. It started life in 2003 and has grown ever since, in 2010 it had the most growth of any other program of 517%! Again in 2011 it lagged behind other programs like WordPress and Drupal for overall market share but had the most growth of any of the big CMS names.
Just like Joomla! and WordPress there is hundreds of free templates or themes as all CMS programs like to call them that you can change in almost anyway you would like, it is hard to find a website that looks the same on Concrete5. It would be worth spending a little time searching for a few themes you like the look of and downloading them ready to upload easily when you have bought your hosting.
All of the changes to the website pages is done on page. Add your images, change the text and add the pages you need and before you know it you will have a great looking website. There are plenty of guides online that will help you do exactly what you need to do and step by step. Concrete5 has a great website to access all information you would need to find out how to do anything you want, they also have a large community for help from other developers and novices from around the world. With all this help you will be able to build a number of websites from a small business website, an E-Commerce site all the way up to a community website with ease.
