Contao Comments

Deserves to be loved

Positive Comment by alexanderschwirjow
about Contao Dec 2016

A really reliable, proper CMS. If you do have enough content and some knowledge in CSS, you could fall in love with it.

PROS: Flexible, fast, good comunity support.
CONS: Almost no free themes, bit hard to get used to

Highly flexible

Positive Comment by DanMan
about Contao and Drupal Aug 2012

This is one of the most flexible, customizable yet manageable CMS I've ever used. You can implement even intricate designs right out of the box, without having to install a plethora of plug-ins first, that you may not even know exist, let alone configure. I usually get away with 3 plug-ins tops. Hows that, Drupal?

The documentation is integrated into the administration area, so you don't have to consult a dedicated manual unless you want to.
