Hi, I’d like to ask the author community from theme forest about their opinion on the potential of concrete5.
Having seen the “most wanted” competition I was curious if you guys think that concrete5 is going to get a bit bigger than it is now. I really see a great potential for simpler websites – portfolios, simple blogs, CVs and so on – with concrete5.
I’m considering joining the author community soon and my first pick would be concrete5. What do you guys think?
PS : I hope I posted in the right section, if not, let me know the right section for this.
As CMS Concrete5 is simply awesome! It’s gaining user base and market share rapidly. But, alas, I do not see great demand on themes for it at this particular moment. IMO, developing themes for it is kinda long-term investing; and a bit risky one.
Entirely agree with Dream-Theme. I think we should wait a little bit.
Thanks you for your feedback. The reason I’m considering something else but wordpress is because… well, it feels so crowded there, in the wordpress sections. I feel like giving concrete5 a try and maybe even do some plugins for it, for free, just to encourage more people to use it for simple websites, and therefore increase interest in all things concrete5 – premium themes included -.
I don’t like Concrete5. It has a very ugly UI and it is not so intuitive. There are better cms out there (IMHO).
I know Concrete5 and doesn’t bring much to the table, if it weren’t for that build in caching system it will be slower than naked WP but I think it can scale cheaper since is build on a relative modern architecture, they have their own marketplace which is promoted through the CMS itself.
