DNN [Platform] is great for organizations of any size who wish to have a robust CMS to manage their site. DNN is not ideal for a small site that is better suited to a super easy to user interface such as Wix. DNN [Platform] is plenty strong enough for enterprises and large entities.

The WYSIWYG web builder marketspace is saturated, but there
are not many solutions out there that eschew table-based design in favor of letting creators build sites where anything goes wherever you want. You’ll likely want to skip this product if you need a plug-and-play solution where everything is automatically responsively. However, if you have an eye for design, love creative control, and like to sweat the details until you have made the perfect website, WebWave is a must buy. Read full review Pros Very easy to use CMS - Ease of use is paramount with CMS products to minimise on support calls. Also the template structure of pages ensures that content editors cannot inadvertently corrupt the layout of the page. Powerful application framework - The existence of APIs for all functionality within the CMS provides limitless scope in terms of developing bespoke applications which sit within the CMS. Commercially supported option available - For larger clients, the comfort factor of having a direct line to the developers of the application is a big selling point. Read full review WebWave's site builder is the platform's truly innovative feature. I've never come across another service that deploys a layer-based approach in web design, as most of them usually deploy a grid-based system. This is an incredible alteration that ensures WebWave behaves much like a traditional graphic design tool, thereby resulting in an experience that is a lot more intuitive and instinctive. I believe this has the potential to radically change the way people approach no-code web design. WebWave provides automatic, daily backups and a free SSL certificate for every website. This results in excellent security. WebWave's support team is first-class! I had some teething-issues in the beginning, but the support team quickly got me back on track. WebWave's community/forum is an excellent place to vote and request new features. This proves the development team is committed to making WebWave better by listening to their users. Read full review Cons Out of the box, it has some modules, but not enough unless you do a paid version. The support is a bit slow. The menuing can be confusing and terms used a bit strange. which makes training difficult. Read full review Some scope for improvement in UX (colors are not very appealing). It is simple to use but design is a little dated. Especially in the builder section, I'd like to see modern design for buttons and maybe gradients also: as this is where visual motivation is also important Some edits take effect only after pressing OK. That should be eliminated as it's an unnecessary addition. It's also kind of annoying to do that again and again, which can add up to a lot as we do so many small tweaks while building the website. Few things (maybe glitches) in design. The rectangle below the footer was uneditable for me. I spent quite some time trying to figure it out so I'm convinced it's a glitch. Website speed should be increased. Read full review Usability
Very easy to use, intuitive, has many options and plug-ins, and is cheap.

1. The support person does not seem to understand the issues, and seems like they go off to talk to somebody and revert back every 5 to 10 minutes. It takes up a lot of time. 2. There is a lack of reading material to address simple issues like changing the website name in the dashboard, pasting a code, etc.

My experience with
! was over six years ago so a lot could have changed. However, I prefer DNN over
because DNN offers more modules and a better administration user interface.

is a more flexible and adaptive content management system than Webwave. In addition to the functionalities that are already built-in, I am unable to add any customizable plugins or add-ons. However, in the majority of cases, the inherent features of Webwave are sufficient for developing a website that serves its intended purpose. Webwave also makes it possible for you to add animations and the appearance of each of your design elements, whereas
builders require additional plugins in order for users to access most of such capabilities. Webwave has several essential design features available internally, thus saving money and time.
Read full review Return on Investment DNN helps us win bids on projects through the improvements the community has done over the past few years; we were ready to scrap it all together but it has made great strides DNN's community has come back and is actively working to improve and expand the capabilities of the cms on a negative note, the confusion between evoq and dnn has caused us headaches Read full review saved 30 hours per year per site (previously I had to manually run updates and check if everything is fine) earns money for me without a touch (thanks to automatic billing of my customers for hosting and support) - additional (ca.) 120 USD per year per site no negatives so far Read full review ScreenShots
