A few years ago, if a web developer was asked to name some content management systems, then there would have been a few on their lips that were hardly known or had any strength in how the web worked. This was because of the inexperience of the user and complications of the CMS’s which led to it being very difficult to customise or modify the CMS. That was then.
These days, the hard working teams behind many of the popular open source CMS’ have led to it being very easy and simple to customise the packages to the pixel. This said, there are many good designers who still find it difficult to say you can customise anything other than WordPress in fine detail. I aim to show you that WordPress isn’t the only solution which offers good flexibility (I agree it’s the friendliest however, with a bit more work, you can easily become just as good on many other platforms).
I have chosen 5 popular content management systems and for each of these, have chosen 5 stunning designs to show you that you can just as well achieve similar results as if you were using WordPress:
- Expression Engine
To build a stunning site like any of the above, there are a few requirements:
- Design Skill
- Development Experience. (Just a little will do…)
