Overall Satisfaction with ExpressionEngine

We leverage Expression Engine to build customer friendly CMS websites to spec. Expression Engine offers a vast arsenal of plugins that work with each other, and allow a creative developer to build custom publish and edit forms that make sense to the end users who are often not so web-saavy.
  • Bends around website design instead of the other way around.
  • Good solution for large customers with different permission groups of users.
  • Excellent for managing multiple websites under the same 'hood'.
  • Be sure to discuss maintenance options with your customers - the update process is not difficult, but can take a bit of effort.
  • Users who actually use the CMS are loyal and come back for updates and other projects. Positive.
Wordpress - back end CMS coding in EE is much nicer than the Wordpress. It is not a system to build layouts - something like Drupal might work better. Define the editable regions beforehand - customers wanting to design their own site within the CMS might need to look elsewhere.
It's reliable and useful for almost all projects that come our way.
EE is well suited for managing multiple websites or for structuring a CMS over a standard or non-standard website design. We don't even look at other CMS options - when customers come knocking this is what we reach for.
