Why ExpressionEngine is one of the best CMS

Why ExpressionEngine rocks?

  • Add-on Features

    Expression Engine offers many great applications that are built into the core files. You can increase the capabilities of your site by installing one of the many modules available for download, such as an RSS feed, photo gallery and wiki. The wiki capabilities are quite spectacular and full of possibilities, depending on your site’s needs and community.

    Additionally, you can install plugins that make your site even more suited to the diverse needs of your audience. We found plugins for removing HTML formatting from text, viewing inbound links for your URL through Technorati, and displaying the top authors on a page.

  • Management

    The software’s administrative features include admin logs, site membership, searchable (and search-and-replace) content forums, data export, a blacklist/whitelist module, SQL and extension manager, which are all tools that come standard with this content management system. In fact, ExpressionEngine is equipped with the full complement of management elements we looked for in CMS software. This stands as a testament to how successful open source software can be. A site is only as strong as its ability to manage content, data and users, which ExpressionEngine accomplishes with flying colors.

  • Security

    ExpressionEngine allows you to create a truly secure site where you can trust that the data you handle will be safe. The built-in framework of Expression Engine’s CMS offers you an audit trail, Captcha verifications (a plugin to determine if a comment or response is not generated by a computer), content approval and email verification. Login history is also included, and the system is SSL compatible.

    ExpressionEngine already boasts a secure and stable system, one which has not been victim to a major security breach in the 10 years it has existed. Spam blockers are already in place, which means you can avoid unwanted attention from the malicious forces of the web. The security features offered here are quite comprehensive and include the most advanced of protective features offered among the CMS products we reviewed.

  • Ease of Use

    ExpressionEngine has gained a significant following through its high level of customization and ease of use. The interface is straightforward and offers easy access to both front-end and back-end editing. Because this CMS software is open source, you get the best of both worlds. You can add to your website’s functionality through the use of PHP, which means the functionality you desire from a website is easily within reach. For the non-technical user, you can simply work on your site from a simple front-end interface with a simple navigation.
