Hands down the best CMS in the marketplace. What other CMS can be picked up by novice site owners in literally less than an hour and also gives developers the flexibility to develop robust websites in a minimal amount of time?
Pixo Web Design & Strategy
Concrete is one of the best CMS's I have ever used. It has the ability to be any type of website you could think of; a blog, a small brochure site, or even a massive administration system. It can be any and all of these things without betraying it's core values.
It is the perfect mix of being a website users best friend, with little to no learning curve as you literally edit the page you're on, and see how things look in real time. It still allows a developer ease of use to create any number of packages. Its extensibility is almost limitless. You can build anything you want to within its ecosystem - without having to hack it.
- Adam Race Chapman
Head of Development
Concrete has been a blessing for our company. We love it for it's modern framework, security, and that clients just get it. Since we replaced Joomla with Concrete, client support calls have decreased significantly, no sites have shown signs of being hacked, and development tools have only gotten better!
It's the utopia of CMS systems, secure, easy for users to manage yet well architected and designed for developers.
Intuitive enough to install and set up your own website with no coding skills but powerful and flexible enough to evolve as your website needs grow.
- Paul Howie
Head of Digital at Bluegreen Design
While Concrete has an enormous amount of functionality out-of-the box, its ability to be customised and extended makes it one of the most, if not the most, powerful content management systems available. We always have a solution with Concrete CMS.

After having worked in Joomla!, Drupal, WordPress, Orchard, Ektron and Sitefinity, Concrete is BY FAR my favorite, go-to CMS system. It's the most intuitive and easiest to work with out of them all.

Concrete is hands down the most powerful and user-friendly CMS available today. Whether you're building your 1st website ever or your 400th, Concrete is endlessly extendable while providing a robust core of features that meet a vast majority of website needs without having to touch a line of code (unless you want to!). All of my clients love the interface and how easy it is to edit their own site, saving them money and allowing me to develop instead of manage their content. Performance is great, powerful SEO management is built in, and the marketplace offers plenty of tools and themes to customize your site. 10/10.

Concrete plays a role in keeping support requests down compared to other dashboard-based CMSes.
CMS's (like WordPress) have a lot of good about them. But they have a decent of a learning curve to navigate (even if you've edited a site in that CMS before). With those, every developer approaches things differently and it's not always intuitive where you need to go to edit a thing (a field on the page, a widget, a random nested menu in the sidebar, etc.)
I have used Concrete for the past 10 years as my go to CMS. It's amazing, simple to hand over to clients and is always improving. It's so easy to use, I have only ever shown about 6 clients out of about 70 how to use it as most just understand it and get it once they login.
- Tim Macknelly

Concrete is at the moment the best PHP CMS. It's very easy to learn and use for clients but it's also very developer friendly. Many PHP CMS have a lot of friction when a developer tries to work out of the box, this is not the case with Concrete. Even advanced use cases feel natural.

Concrete is the most usable CMS out there for content editors - we've looked at other options over the years and nothing else matches the block editor for ease of use. You can be confident when you're editing a page that it'll look exactly how you want, because you're editing in the page itself. Custom block types are great for letting designers enforce specific layouts.

The best CMS system for building and running nice websites easily.
- Vasilis Fotopoulos
My elevator pitch goes like this: "We recommend a CMS called Concrete. You've likely not heard of it, but it similar to other PHP CMS platforms like Drupal or WordPress, but much more flexible and technically superior. The big reason we like to use it is when clients come back to us and ask if we can implement new functionality at the last minute, we generally always say 'yes' - where it's not so easy with the other platforms."
- Alex Aalto
Concrete has been quick to install, simple to edit, maintain and is a pleasure to work with. Once clients/users get used to the basics of editing and publishing it's not long before they start looking at the many other features available to them, especially the ease of adding additional themes and/or add-ons for that extra functionality from the marketplace with a few clicks. I have clients who have never come to me with Concrete issues, some have had a Concrete sites running for over nine years. Plus security is great, never had a site hacked.
- Steev Beech
Concrete is THE CMS giving you a very easy way to create and maintain websites and offers a vast marketplace with themes a very useful add-ons!

- G Eastwood
Head of Digital Engineering
Imagine WordPress, and Concrete are both cars. They will both do the basic thing which is get you from A to B. The difference is that when you want to change part of the car be it aesthetically or mechanically WordPress will have a world of interlocking problems. These would be the equivalent of updating plugins and taking the risk they don’t play well with the rest of your site. With Concrete modifications are a lot cleaner and MODULAR so when you want to make changes you know exactly where everything should fit.
A really easy to use modern CMS!

Simple to use, simple to build, yet crazy powerful.
- Adrian Koeppel
Concrete is an easy CMS both for editors and developers.
It has been designed and built around the user experience and that the WYSIWYG is not just an added piece. Many features have been thought of in an intelligent, simple and flexible way. You only need 3 lines of code to transform a simple HTML template into a CMS page. Concrete is quite powerful and complete out of the box and can be easily extended. The basic blocks are quite flexible so most of the time we don't need to add a lot of specific blocks, a simple block template is enough. If a specific development is necessary, in general it is easy to plan what to do, even for a developer new to Concrete.
- Cedric Matton
Digital Project Manager and developer
Concrete is the CMS I've chosen with my clients in mind. We used to spend time developing sites in a CMS for clients, but then were called again afterwards to make simple content changes. I wanted a user-friendly system that my clients would actually use, and Concrete has been it. Although I chose Concrete mainly for this reason, I love developing in it now also. Concrete is the all-around best system.
- Mike Wilbur
I am exceedingly pleased with the functionality, adaptability and security of Concrete. My particular sites are highly modified and it was easy to incorporate all the little tweaks, concepts and end objectives that I set out to built.
Everything and anything that I have envisioned for my web sites has been easily accomplished and I am not some kind of ninja super-coder, I am just a normal Joe. This speaks volumes to the adaptability of Concrete to be adapted and modified to create one of a kind web sites that are not simply another cookie cutter type clone web site like certain other brands of CMS.
One thing that brings me particular pride is the level of security that Concrete has brought to their product and in the library of third party vendors that build add ons. Concrete is an island of security in a world of CMS's that are constantly falling prey to script kiddies and their exploit attacks. Security is the ultimate priority of my web site and Concrete has NEVER let me down or failed my end users in their safe traversing of my sites.

The core-team and the whole community is very enthusiastic, friendly, and helpful, even for newcomers with no experiences (like me). Concrete is very stable. My first installation is a 5.6 from 2012 and it is still running.
The addons are rather inexpensive or even free and nevertheless supported by the developers.
