Craft CMS. Build without boundaries

Craft CMS is our choice of content management system (CMS), that puts you in control of your content & layout.

We don’t like putting restrictions on what you can do with your own website, this is why we chose Craft CMS to put you in full control. Allowing you to update your website quicker than most other commercial CMS platforms. Meaning you can spend more time focussing on other parts of your business.

Let's point out some geeky bits that we like about Craft CMS
Custom Fields
Set up custom fields based on your content’s specific needs. Choose from a huge variety of built-in and plugin-supplied field types.
Section Types
Not all content is created equal. Craft comes with three types of sections that let you manage your entries differently depending on your use case.
Relations
Relate your entries, categories, tags, assets, users, and even plugin-supplied element types, using Craft’s powerful relationship system.
Categories & Tags
Keeping things organized in Craft is easy with its built-in category and tag support.
Multi-site
Manage the content for multiple related websites from a single Craft installation.
Localization
All of your site’s content can be localized to target specific languages and territories – from the URLs down to your custom field values.
Manage your site.
Live Preview
See how your content will look right as you type with Live Preview, and share in-progress drafts with others using private preview URLs.
Asset Management
Craft comes with desktop-class asset management built-in. Define volumes and subfolders, and view your files in list or thumbnail views.
Image Editor
Crop, rotate, flip, and straighten your photos right from within the Control Panel.
User Management
Define user groups, set permissions on groups or individual users, and optionally allow public user registration.
Dashboard
Each of your users get their own fully customizable dashboard, tailored to their needs.
Quicker Updating
Shape will keep Craft and your plugins up-to-date with the latest bug fixes and security enhancements if on a support plan.
