    Computer & Network Security

Can be customised easily.

  • March 18, 2020
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best about the product?
The ability and flexibility that it offers. You can basically customize concrete however you need. Also, the WYSIWYG editor is amazing. There are several plugins like the designer block that make the experience awesome.
What do you dislike about the product?
The community support. There is sufficient support but not as much as I would like
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Concrete 5 allowed me to give access of the client to the client. Now I don't need to make small changes. The client can do it themselves.


    Computer Software

A powerful CMS which provides scalable development and easier to understand

  • September 24, 2019
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best about the product?
The best thing I find in concrete5 is how easier and scalable this CMS is. It allows you to create custom blocks from existing blocks with proper structure. You can create packages, write automated jobs and much more.
What do you dislike about the product?
It takes lot of time during installation, and every new version adds more tables which makes sometimes installation failed in middle, like timeout issue. Most of the time we need to find work around. Need more work on stability of instance, versioning as well. Community needs to be more powerful and active to provide add ons.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
I create website for clients using singles pages and page type, page templates and most of all integration.

User Friendly for End Users, not so much for IT

  • April 03, 2019
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best about the product?
Training the end-users on this software was pretty easy. We made a guide and everything seems to be running smoothly for the most part. We will occasionally get a question or two on something, but for the most part, everything seems to work fine!
What do you dislike about the product?
Using Concrete5 as an IT user has been a pain. It isn't too much of a negative, but uploading files doesn't seem to be as straightforward as it could be. However, as long as it works well for the end users, the software is doing its job I think. IT should have the skills needed to overcome any design flaws that might come with catering to the end user.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Before Concrete5, all web changes had to go through the IT department which would overload the staff and make request take longer to complete. With Concrete5, users can update their own websites after they go through our Concrete5 training. This has helped to make the Helpdesk more efficient as well.

A beautifully simple CMS platform for dummies.

  • January 02, 2019
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best about the product?
Once installed the design and front-end functionality is perfect for any experience level. Templates and extensions are easy to install and use.
What do you dislike about the product?
Since the newest version, there have been fewer new extensions which is a shame. But most basics are there.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
The main problem is having a drag and drop CMS platform for clients that they can expand as needed without relying on a service like squarespace.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Consider using an external dev team for set up of the platform. At points, it was quite fiddly.

Quick review on Concrete5

  • December 19, 2018
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best about the product?
Concrete5 comes with a big jump. From the ground up developed as a blogging software. Concrete5 was originally created as a way to quickly and easily design and build a website. The platform has enough functionality out-of-the-box allowing to build any kinds of websites as well.
What do you dislike about the product?
While Concrete5 is considered to be very easy, some steps can be more detailed, and vary depending on the specific theme or plugin you are using.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Concrete5 provides its users with many add-ons as well. However, they are offered via the built-in Marketplace controlled by Concrete5, and thus tend to have less compatibility problems.

Pretty user friendly and fast, but not as diverse as more popular platforms

  • December 14, 2018
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best about the product?
The speed and simplicity of the platform is where it shines. It's also easy to implement.
What do you dislike about the product?
Looking at form inquiries is more challenging than it needs to be. Since it is not as widely used as, say, WordPress the support and plugins are limited.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
We've used it as the content management system for smaller websites. Easier to implement is a positive - saves time and money. Faster than bulky CMSs.

a better option for webdesign

  • September 20, 2018
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best about the product?
the fact that designers can enter the platform at their skill/comfort level. you can build in WYSIWYG, blocks, or code-edit methods, from a single interface. the instant on-server versioning is awesome. It is not as restrictive as other WYSIWYG platforms, and it is proprietary to a server space (you can use it as WYSIWYG on your own server/hosting). bootstrap brings uniformity to repetitive work.
What do you dislike about the product?
you have to install it for each website created, so there is an installation per domain in a hosting package. You have to log in/out per website, and multiple installations in design mode on a single server are consuming resources, vs if a single install could handle multiple sites within a hosting package.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
speed of production, faster disaster recovery (restoring after botched code), ability to achieve hand-coded capabilities that other WYSIWYG platforms do not allow for. xara didnt allow for drilled down settings, and weebly of course was only used on their server space. we were able to un-can and un-cork with concrete5.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
running on shared hosting will likely be too slow for daily use, but it will give you an idea of the abilities you would gain. a VPS server is best, but keep in mind, multiple sites require multiple installations of concrete5, they do not yet have a multi-site management feature.
