For the past few years our preferred Content Management System (CMS) has been Concrete 5 – amongst the most obvious benefits of this system are its customisability (which we love) and the simple but powerful in-page editing offered.
Concrete5 (C5) is an open source content management system (CMS) for publishing content on the World Wide Web and intranets. It was designed for ease of use, especially for users with a minimum of technical skills.
It enables users to edit site content directly from the page with absolute ease and also provides version management for every page, similar to wiki software.
Concrete5 features in-context editing (the ability to edit website content directly on the page, rather than in an administrative interface or using web editor software). Editable areas are defined in concrete5 templates which allow editors to insert blocks of content or edit a block's current content with an intuitive and simple user interface.
Editable areas are defined in our bespoke concrete5 templates which allow editors to insert blocks of content. These can contain simple content (text and images) or have more complex functionality, for example image slideshows, comments systems, social media feeds, video and a myriad of other powerful choices and functions.
Aurora are able to utilise the more advanced features of Concrete5 to build custom blocks to meet specific customer requirements. The performance charts on the Rare Whisky 101 website are a great example of how powerful and time saving this bespoke functionality can be.
