concrete5 is an open source content management and website builder application.
Building and running a website are two very different challenges. Certainly, one person may wear both hats, but the process of launching a great website is far different from running a great website over time. concrete5 lets you do both: build and run great websites. Most other content management systems are built for one side of the equation or the other.
Many CMS’s were designed by developers, for developers. Building and maintaining a site with them can be pretty complex and intimidating for someone who can’t program computers. The end editing experience works, but to make even basic content changes you’re typically working with long web forms in a “back-end.” Adding new functionality is something you’ll need some technical know-how to pull off. Imagine having to call a consultant every time you wanted to write a new Word document. How useful is that to your business?
Conversely, there’s a number of solutions that are geared for the DIY market. Typically starting as a blog, these sites get added to and added to over time until they fall apart. Imagine being told your document was always going to have a cover page, a table of contents, and an index – no matter how simple you wanted it to be. Sure it’s great you can get started quickly, but if you want to do much more than what these systems were designed for like using a hammer to drive screws.
With concrete5, you get the best of both worlds. Anyone can start making their own website in seconds, and the editing experience is easy; just click on what you want to change. Developers still get a flexible and robust framework for building sophisticated web applications. With concrete5, however, site owners will be able to make changes and additions on their own, for years to come.
- Intuitive Editing: Our Editor makes it easy to customize your site exactly the way you want it. No creative limits or coding needed.
- Powerful and Extendable: The real power is in the way you customize concrete5. A wide variety of add ons to extend your website and broaden your functionality.
- Create Forms and Collect Data: Create forms and surveys in a few easy steps without any design or code needed. With the form builder, you can easily create, edit forms in minutes.
- Great Discussions: Our completely integrated commenting system supports threaded comments, and all comments have individual like counts.
- SEO Enabled: Concrete5 is optimized for search without any additional code or add-ons required. Improve your search rankings from the start.

GetSimple is an open source content management application.
GetSimple is an XML based, stand-a-alone, fully independent and lite Content Management System.

GetSimple is truly the simplest way to manage a small-business website.
- XML Based: We don’t use mySQL to store our information, but instead depend the simplicity of XML. By utilizing XML, we are able stay away from introducing an extra layer of slowness and complexity associated with connecting to a mySQL database. Because GetSimple was built specifically for the small-site market, we feel this is the absolutely best option for data storage.
- You can “Undo” Almost Everything: This feature was based off an eye-opening AListApart article explaining how warning messages never work as planned. Because of this, we’ve included “undo” into almost every action you can take on the site, giving you peace-of-mind for when you make those inevitable stupid mistakes.
- Easy to Learn UI: The top priority when designing our user-interface was to make it the best in it’s class. We had the luxury of trying and testing all the competing management systems before designing ours, so we took the best out of each one – then refined it.
- Simple Installation: The total time in setting up a website took a total of 5 minutes, from starting the FTP to finishing the setup procedure.
- Simple Theme Customization: We have how to documents that show you how to create a custom theme. Our goal was not to bloat our software with hundreds of little-used theme functions, but to offer more than enough to allow for a fully customized theme.
- Designed For the Small-Site Market: This is one of the reasons GetSimple uses XML rather than a robust database such as mySQL. For most small businesses, their only real need is to be able to easily update their site without the need of a ton of extraneous rarely used features. GetSimple’s goal is to manage small websites efficiently and effectively
