There are a lot of decisions to make when developing a website — from hosting, performance, search engine visibility, accessibility, to how easy it is for your team to manage the website. However, experience has taught us that if the tool used to manage the website is not intuitive to use or flexible enough to meet the specific needs of the client team, then care for the website tends to dwindle and it becomes less effective. This is where Craft CMS shines.
Trusted by top global brands
Craft was awarded the best Wordpress alternative and it’s used by some of the top companies and digital agencies in the industry today.
We take accessibility (a11y) seriously and we are not alone. Craft CMS is also making great efforts to ensure its software conforms to WCAG 2.1 AA guidelines.
In 2020, the W3C spent time researching the accessibility of Content Management Systems and after several rounds of elimination they selected Craft CMS — for its current accessibility conformance and its commitment to accessibility on an ongoing basis.
W3C re-platformed from WordPress to Craft CMS in 2023.
The commitment to make the authoring tools accessible clearly aligns with our own values to make inclusivity a key driver for success.
Craft is blessed with a number of great features that come as standard with no plugins required.
With data security being a crucial consideration for any website, you can take comfort in Craft’s security credentials. As it is professionally maintained, it has high levels of security with an established release cycle and regular maintenance releases.
Craft’s Live Preview mode is a standout feature. It allows a content author to preview content changes in real-time before they even press the save button. In fact, there is no reason to save as Craft auto-saves does it for you.
Craft’s publishing workflow allows you to save pages as drafts so you or a colleague can review the changes before publishing. Sending a special link to external partners means you can share drafts and gain approval without granting access to the CMS.
Inline content creation
Craft streamlines the content authoring process by providing content authors shortcuts for creating content on the fly. For example, when creating a new article you may want to assign it to a new category or relate it to a page that does not yet exist. This can all be achieved directly on the entry page being created — saving time.
Organise assets in different folders or subfolders and safely move assets between them without the fear of it breaking on the front-end templates. Craft tracks all files added to an Assets field or embedded in a Rich Text field.
Natively, you can edit (resize/crop/rotate) images, but, more importantly, you can add a focal point to them. This allows you to upload a single image, assign a focal point and then use that same image on different templates at different sizes.
Matrix fields allow you to create repeating and mixed content types using a single field, which we call the Page builder. With this powerful feature at your fingertips you have full control over your content.
Create User Groups to help organise your site’s user accounts, as well as batch-set permissions to make user management easier.
Granular permissions can be set for individual users, such as the ability to access the control panel, edit content within certain sections.
Feed Me is a first-party Craft plugin for importing of content — either once-off or at regular intervals. With support for XML, RSS, ATOM, CSV or JSON feeds it is possible to import content as Entries, Categories, Craft Commerce Products and more.
Where Feedme gets data into Craft, GraphQL API — extending the possibilities of how Craft can be used in unique ways.
Without doubt, Craft is the best CMS for managing content that targets different locales. Simply switch between languages on the publish form page and add the relevant content.
A single installation of Craft can be used to manage different websites even if they have different domains. Better still, content can be shared amongst these websites — great for a suite of company websites.
We have created an interactive Page builder gallery where you can see examples of the type of content you can add to your pages. Everything from image galleries to testimonials.
We exclusively develop in Craft and have been using it since its inception. Clearly we are fans and so are our many clients.
We have shared some of its key features, but we also want to highlight some of the other benefits of choosing to have a website created by Scaramanaga.
