"Complexity become simplicity!"

What do you like best?

Your content manager will love you, especially with the user friendly page editing tool.

You need a custom placeholder, CMS plugin make your developer happy.

You want to inject a custom Django application to the page tree, just hook it.

The flexibility offered by Django framework permit to easily add new custom feature to your CMS.

The community provide a good choice of Django-CMS applications, like blog, news, poll, etc., and you always find good support from the enthusiasts community of developer.

What do you dislike?

By default, not made for complexe content workflow, like moderation queue.

Reverting page content changes is not always perfect, but work on most use cases.

Not always easy to deal with placeholder caching mechanism.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Never tested with more than 10'000 pages, also be careful if you use it with lot of simultaneous content editor, all depends of your architecture capacity and editor workflow. For big website need considering frontend caching solution, like Vanish to guarantee fast page loading time. With a suitable architectured the CMS be able to support anyway heavy load!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use this CMS to create valued website with high traffic since more than 5 years.

The powerful capacity of Django framework permit to create a custom experience over the top of the CMS itself. Like a custom search-engine, a custom authentication mechanism or set up complexe plugins.

You always be able to respond *yes* when the business come with a crazy idea :-)

"Powerful CMS for mid-sized, mid-complex websites"

What do you like best?

Flexibility and scalability of the product.

Easy to understand user interface: newbies get to understand the CMS quickly.

What do you dislike?

Can be somewhat tricky to manage dynamic multilanguage content, i.e. blogs.

Editing of multi-language content is not exactly user friendly. E.g. there is no option to view content in different languages side by side.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Django is quite powerful and flexible. Keep in mind, that it might be too powerful – and thus too complex – for small to mid scale web projects.

If you are coming from platforms like Wordpress you might miss the ease of trying out gazillions of plugins; my supplier had to develop apps for certain features we had expected to be readily available.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

django CMS helps us explain our products and services, raise awareness for our brand, and showcase the success stories of our clients.

What Enterprise Content Management (ECM) solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"django CMS - a powerful platform that gives a lot of possibilities "

What do you like best?

The user interface for frontend editing is very easy to handle and intuitive. Most of our content editors don't need a long time to understand the cms and this helps us to save some budget. Furthermore django CMS's flexibility allows us to add more and more plugins and keep our websites updated and on top of latest trends.

What do you dislike?

There is no option available at the moment for the content administrator to publish a page in different languages at the same time, all different languages must be published independently.

Recommendations to others considering the product

django CMS is a powerful platform that gives a lot of possibilities and where nothing is impossible. Of course there are other CMSes like Typo3, Wordpress etc. All of them have their own strengths and weaknesses, but django CMS lacks nothing compared to others and it's actually written in Django which is way more flexible and secure than PHP.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We developed many Django applications that we could easily integrate with django CMS. We are also using it because of it's multisite feature, and the many languages supported, which bring our business and products closer to our customers and partners.

"Very versatile"

What do you like best?

DjangoCMS is based on Python/Django, one of the cleanest, most solid and powerful web frameworks out there. The best thing about DjangoCMS is how it plugs into Django - whole apps can be made available within the DjangoCMS administration very easily and writing plugins also is a breeze as plugins are also based on Django apps.

I also like the ability to quickly launch a DjangoCMS project on Aldryn, an all-inclusive hosting / deployment solution by Divio, where many of DjangoCMS' contributors work.

What do you dislike?

The interface design could be a bit smoother, especially the frontend editing part, however the latest version has brought significant improvements.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Combining content pages with custom-made application logic! DjangoCMS is very powerful and versatile when it comes to building websites that require custom functionality and business logic.
