Concrete CMS started as a commercial offering in 2003, it has been through several revisions and updates, and version 5 brought it to open source. It’s a flexible system that has a nice backend, yet uses edit-in-place functionality.
Current Version: 5.5.1
Development: Commercial, Community
Source: Open Source
Hosting: Your Server, Their Server
License: MIT License
Programming: PHP, Python, XML
Concrete5 is best for non-programmers that want a static website. In other words, a finite set of Web pages like: About, Contact, Services, etc. The initial setup is extremely easy and creating custom templates (themes) is nearly as simple as creating the HTML files. Its real attraction may be inline editing of pages. All you need to do is click some content and a popup allows you to change its contents. It handles links, images, and all sorts of different “blocks” of content wonderfully.
Concrete5 was built from the ground up as a commercial CMS for actual clients. It was only recently that they released an open source version, so the community and custom module developers are still light.
