Magnolia V5+

Magnolia CMS is a great product to develop enterprise websites, extranets and intranets. At the moment, the community is growing day by day but so far not many extensions are available. Magnolia is an enterprise CMS, the initial learning curve takes time, to learn all its functionalities and how to customize it is necessary to know Java. When one wants to develop just a simple website without complexity which doesn’t need any specific features such as workflow, versioning, environment separation between staging and public, etc. it is preferable to choose another CMS.
