Processwire is incredibly flexible and have not found better software to build a website on.

  • July 10, 2020

What do you like best?
I love the flexibility of Processwire. You can make a site look like you want and then bring in Processwire for the functionality and CMS capabilities. Front end and back end are independent with makes it so easy to design any site you want.
What do you dislike?
I really have not found anything to dislike. If I ever have an issue it's because I need to learn more PHP or Javascript. Processwire is never the issue because it is designed to just work no matter what codebase you are laying on top of it. I even use it for Native iOS apps!
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
I have used Processwire as a custom CRM for dozens of sites over the years. Everything from event sites, e-commerce sites and Native apps. It just makes it easy to create a site that looks like you want it to look without the need for all kinds of third party plugins.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
If you know some PHP and are thinking about Wordpress, consider Processwire instead. Great community. It's open source and the founder Ryan is still involved, still updating and after using it for years I have not even scratched the surface of what it can do. This should be the backend of every small to medium sized site in my opinion.

An easy to learn, very flexible CMS / CMF

  • April 07, 2019

What do you like best?
ProcessWire has an extremely easy to learn API and is very flexible. It’s the single best CMS / CMF I found. Each ProcessWire website is tailor made and only contains exactly what you need. It’s not an of the shelf use just install a template CMS but a great starting point for developers looking to build custom sites.
What do you dislike?
There are no automated tests. I wish it would have a more solid approach to handling data models (like getters and setters) as well as better staging mechanism.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We use it for multiple custom platforms, ranging from one off event websites to larger sites that are the backbone of our world-wide operation.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Go read what poeple who are actually use the system write about it – most praise it very much.

Streamlined and Completely Custom CMS for the Beginner Developer

  • March 01, 2019
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
The use of custom fields to build your own CMS from the ground up is unparalleled. Coming from Wordpress, all I knew was how to navigate the restrictions of very limited fieldtypes and try to force those to work for my e-commerce, blogs, non-profit webpages, and other web design projects. Also, I enjoy how seamlessly Processwire's API can be used to turn all of your custom fields into content on the front-end with just a single line of code. Awesome documentation and tech support from the founder himself.
What do you dislike?
There is not much to dislike, as most of the problems I come across are user errors or because of my lack of programming knowledge. Because it's open-source, there is always a new solution to your problem. My biggest dislike is the lack of pre-built modules for some basic functions, although this is always growing. Payment processing, emailing, and pricing tables are a few that are just working their way onto the PW scene.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
There wasn't a solid alternative to Wordpress for totally remodeling our non-profit websites so this is the #1 solution. Benefits would be customization and flexibility.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
If you know just a little bit of PHP, you'll be flying through web dev with ProcessWire. Veteran developers will find this as a great framework for websites, large and small.

Great for developers (I assume), pretty bad for everyone else

  • January 17, 2019

What do you like best?
It seems like a very flexible platform for web development, from the perspective of a development team. It has endlessly configurable modules that can act on a per-page basis or globally, or a selected set of pages. What it lacks in polish and usability from a consumer standpoint, it almost makes up in its configurability and flexibility.
What do you dislike?
Editing a site on ProcessWire from the perspective of a regular business user is near-impossible. Despite a development team's best efforts to properly label modules, and document how pages are set up, it's still a confusing mess when you compare it to some of the modern web development platforms like Squarespace or WordPress, both of which still offer the level of flexibility that most business users need, without the hopeless labyrinth that ProcessWire calls navigation.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
I assume the business problem one would attempt to solve with ProcessWire is to create a completely custom website, with flexible modules that can be used across the site. In terms of handing this off to a business team, though, there are little benefits. There's no balance of flexibility of the platform for developers and usability of the editors for clients. It places the responsibility of maintenance and content updates squarely on more technically savvy users, and that's a big problem.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Consider something like WordPress, Demandware, Shopify, Squarespace. Heck, built a static HTML and CSS site and edit the HTML files directly, it would probably be easier than navigating ProcessWire. Honestly it's needlessly confusing and doesn't offer any appreciable benefits over other modern platforms.
