Simple websites need simple CMS

This is just an early stage idea. If the concept will prove useful, we in creator5 will release it as an open source to help everyone, not just us.

Currently most used and beloved CMS solutions, such as WordPress, Drupal and Joomla are great, if you’re building a big website for a tech-savvy customer, that is not afraid of using complex administration systems. But if you want to make just a simple few-page website, those systems are huge overkill.

I don’t know, if it’s just our experience, but currently used content management systems are really hard to use for a basic user. Too many options doesn’t make users just confused, it enables them to screw things up and that makes them afraid to use system at all.

We believe, that we can do better.

Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away - Antoine de Saint-Exupery

What if…

We believe it’s possible. And if nothing else, we need it.

Little technical specs

I’m not saying, that there is no micro CMS out there. There certainly are, but I wasn’t able to find any, that meets the requirements above (if you know about some, please let me know).

Another thing, I’m not saying is, that we want to compete with Wordpress or Drupal. Not at all. They are great in what they do. Our niche is simple websites. Because simple websites need simple CMS.
