Concrete5

User-friendly and fully customisable

For an easy to use CMS that makes updating your website simple

Running a website can be quite complex and intimidating for someone who has little experience in managing a website and many website CMS solutions seem to be developed for a developer and not you.

With you in mind we chose the open source CMS Concrete5 which makes running your website easy. Go to any page in your site and a editing toolbar gives you all the control you need to update your website. No intimidating manuals, no complicated administration interfaces - just point and click.

We build Concrete5 themes from your design if our design services are not needed, or from any of the thousands of HTML CSS themes available.

Very importantly Conctete5 does not dictate layout and design and so there are no restrictions to the look and feel of your site.

  • Redactor WYSIWYG text editor (5.7+)
  • Make site changes with the in-context editing toolbar
  • Automatic navigation – add and move pages without breaking the link
  • Preview changes before publishing
  • Track page versions
  • Advanced permissions
  • Drag-n-Drop content in the page.
  • A Scrapbook lets you copy content from one part of your site to another
  • Vanity URL’s and flexible meta data for SEO (Search Engine Optimisation)
  • Google Analytics integration
  • Schedule content to have it go live automatically later

We have been developing websites since the early 2000's and initially developed our own CMS (Elite). Although it was actually quite advanced for the time and enabled any website or application to be developed, it required constant in-house development which was expensive.

As opens-source CMS’s became more available, we decided to take the plunge and tried a number of them such as Drupal, Joomla and Wordpress, however none of them felt right and in 2009 discovered Concrete5.

Although Concrete5 is a a relatively new CMS, its certainly one of the most customer friendly and flexible CMS’s available.

Mobile Friendly

Makes your web page look good on all devices using a Responsive web design

Bootstrap and Foundation front-end frameworks

A responsive layout is where design and layout responds to the user’s device, screen size, platform and orientation. This is achieved with a mix of flexible grids and layouts, images and an intelligent use of CSS media queries. As the user switches from their laptop to mobile device, the website layout automatically flows to meet the device. Its the same theme and the same content and eliminates the need for a different design and development phase for each new device.

Bootstrap and Foundation are the most popular frameworks using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript for developing mobile-first web sites.

  • Chris is our go-to website specialist. No one has come close to the professionalism and service we have received.
    The work he has completed has always had a seamless quality from 'concept to going live’ - and we don’t get surprises with budget.

    The real benefit has been using Original Image to host our client’s sites too - Chris makes any amends in lightning fast time and if it is a simple change - the back end CMS is easy to use.

  • Throughout the process of redesigning and rebuilding our website, Chris at Original Image has been a fantastic partner to work with.
    He’s responsive, creative with finding solutions to our design and functionality challenges, open and honest about what will and won’t work (and why), and he’s an all round nice guy.
    Chris took on not only a development role, but also a consultant role and provided valuable advice when it came to turning what we had on paper into a reality.
    The changes we made based on his input have meant visitors to our website will get a seamless and consistent experience, regardless of whether they view on a desktop or a mobile.
    We’ve really enjoyed working with Chris and we would certainly recommend Original Image to others.
