It’s been a decade since we first posted about our favourite CMS - Silverstripe, and all these years later we still consider it a great CMS.

Here are a few of the features we continue to love.

  • Flexible Content Management: Silverstripe provides a flexible content management system that allows you to create and manage various types of content, including pages, articles, images, videos, and more. It offers a user-friendly interface that makes content creation and editing intuitive.
  • Customisation: One of the standout features of Silverstripe is its flexibility in terms of customization. It uses a modular system that enables developers to build tailored solutions for specific projects. This can be particularly useful for creating unique and complex websites that require specific functionality.
  • Open Source: Silverstripe is an open-source CMS, which means it's freely available for anyone to use, modify, and distribute. This fosters a strong community of developers, designers, and users who contribute to its growth, development, and support.
  • Strong Framework: Silverstripe isn't just a CMS but also a PHP framework that can be used to build web applications. This means that if you're comfortable with its framework, you can use it to create more than just websites.
  • Version Control: Silverstripe includes a version control system that allows you to track changes to your content. This can be useful for managing collaborative content creation, reviewing changes, and reverting to previous versions if needed.
  • SEO-Friendly: The CMS has features that support search engine optimization (SEO), such as customizable URL structures, meta tags, and XML sitemaps, helping your website rank better in search engine results.
  • Active Community: Silverstripe has an active and engaged community of developers and users. This means you can find plenty of resources, tutorials, and support online if you encounter any issues or have questions.
  • Responsive Design: Silverstripe supports responsive web design, making it easier to create websites that work well on various devices and screen sizes.
  • Security: The open-source nature of Silverstripe allows security vulnerabilities to be identified and patched by the community, leading to ongoing improvements in security.
