With a strong focus on usability, Craft CMS has redefined the editing experience, making it intuitive and efficient.

Clean and Intuitive Interface

Gone are the days of cluttered dashboards that make you feel like you're searching for the hidden treasure in a jungle of icons. Craft CMS welcomes you with a clean and organised interface that caters to both novice and experienced editors. The dashboard presents a clutter-free workspace with a well-organised menu and clearly labelled sections.

This minimalistic design not only enhances the visual appeal but also reduces the learning curve for users transitioning from other platforms. The dashboard's responsive design ensures seamless usability across various devices, enabling editors to work on content from desktops, laptops, or even tablets with ease.

Live Preview and Real-time Editing

One of the standout features of Craft CMS is its real-time editing capabilities. Content creators can preview changes in real-time as they make them, allowing for instant feedback on how the content will appear to site visitors. No more switching back and forth between editing and preview modes; Craft CMS keeps you in the moment, saving you time and effort.

Less time on admin means more focus on creation.

Customisable Content Modelling

Craft CMS empowers content editors by offering a highly customisable content modelling system. Unlike rigid templates in some other CMS platforms, Craft CMS enables editors to structure content according to their unique needs. With the Matrix field, for instance, editors can create dynamic content blocks that can be easily rearranged, helping them to experiment with different layouts without developer intervention. This LEGO-style flexibility encourages creativity and empowers editors to maintain a consistent brand image without sacrificing individuality.

There is no limit to the type of content to be created, be it text, imagery, links, buttons, quotes or bullets. A variety of content and media options allows for a website that is interesting and engaging to viewers, keeping them on your site and interacting with your team.

User-Friendly Editor

Creating content in Craft CMS is a breeze, thanks to its user-friendly authoring experience. The text editor provides a familiar environment for content editors (it works very similarly to Google Docs or Microsoft Word) to craft their content without needing to possess advanced technical skills, and adding images, videos, links, and formatting text can be done effortlessly, ensuring that the focus remains on content creation rather than struggling with the tool itself.

Editors can focus on their content, and let Craft CMS handle the rest.

Content Organisation and Versioning

Effective content management requires robust organisation and versioning capabilities, so you don’t have to hunt for it. Craft CMS excels in this aspect with its elegant organisation of entries, categories, and tags. Editors can easily categorise content, making it simple to locate and manage articles, pages, or other resources.

Additionally, the platform's built-in versioning system ensures that editors can track changes, revert to previous versions, and collaborate seamlessly with team members, making content management a smooth and collaborative process.

Seamless Media Management

Craft CMS understands that images and videos are the crown jewels of content in today's digital landscape. The platform delivers an intuitive media management system that allows editors to upload, organise, and utilise images, videos, and other assets with ease. Thumbnails are automatically generated and the platform supports a wide range of file types, ensuring that editors can focus on the visual appeal of their content without the hassle of manual image processing.

It’s like having a personal assistant for your visual content.
