The site is built to be self-helping, and it works really well. You get "paid" with karma credits, that you can cash in. Payment for helping to find bugs, fix bugs and support others. This means that when you have an issue, there is a rush to help you! The one to helps gets the recognition, and there are many wanting to help.

I think my previous answer can be applied to this one. The forums are well organized and people genuinely seem to want to help other users. Users, 3rd party developers and core developers all work together to make a solid support structure for the product. The only thing I have ever found to be an issue is that the development community is world-wide so sometimes time-zone plays a part in response time.

Concrete5 is open-source and has an incredibly strong, polite, and supportive community. You can get an answer to nearly anything you want to do with Concrete5 by googling for it, searching the Concrete5 discussion forums or stack overflow, or posting your question to the forum. Members are very courteous and do not look down on those with less knowledge. And answers are always quick, informative, and supportive.

About Concrete5

concrete5 is a free and open source PHP built content management system for content on the web and also for intranets. Its emphasis is on management and editing with minimal technical skills and with an embedded editor allows most editing to be done directly from a page, rather than through an entirely separate interface or editor. It features integrated server caching, supports OpenID, version control, and SEO. As with most open source content management systems, its content management functionality can be augmented with many possible addons or via the developer API.

Online magazines and newspapers are the ideal target of concrete5's capabilities though many other sites can be made and managed as well. concrete5 is touted as being both developer and DIY friendly. Marketplace content to extend features are both free and not free, so cost of implementation will vary.
