If you are like me you use 3/4 CMS's. From eCommerce, to landing pages, to sites every platform has a vision, a philosophy or a WAY to do things. Each one thinks is better than the other one. So, exclusively thinking about CMS's, what is that one thing that you hate the most?
page load times
I feel the same way, also the fact that sometimes it takes +5 steps to do a simple thing.
Wordpress, it's a nice CMS but it got some epic stigma. Also it's slow.
it is slow. (if I start measuring its performance with RAIL, it fails so hard.
I wouldn't say it is slow; if implemented improperly, it can be slow, but that's the same with anything else, really.
This is my website implemented via Craft:
It's not slow:
I've been using Craft CMS a lot recently, and if I had to complain about one thing it'd be the way they handle their license keys.
Their pricing tiers are great, nothing to complain about there, but I cannot for the life of me understand why keys need to be in a physical config file instead of on the settings page.
Given how we migrate between development/staging/production servers without fail we get an alert for invalid license key, even after we have a pro license. Super frustrating.
Hows Craft CMS load time? Is it like web-starter-kit by Google?
What I do is I keep the license.key in my git repo, and when I push dev -> staging or dev -> production it gets propagated automatically.
In general, I would say speed. Most CMS solutions I've tried are a drag in terms of updating content from start to finish. Many try to do too much in my opinion so as a result there are a lot of background requests that fire many people don't really need.
On the opposite end of that spectrum, many CMS solutions don't do enough. Users who aren't used to the command line, for example, will have a hell of a time writing a new markdown file and committing it
That it's not Craft.
I love using Kirby CMS, however, I wish customizing the sidebar was a bit easier( by this I mean managing widgets and the like, not styles) .
Agreed. I love Kirby but the Panel is a bit inflexible for those of us who are more on the design side than development. I picked Kirby because the PHP syntax made so much more sense to me than standard PHP but it's hard to make sense of the Panel, especially with little to no documentation.
Exactly! I almost feel embarrassed showing clients the admin area they have to login to. I have to do some heavy custom CSS on it to make it look halfway decent.
