Craft CMS is a content management system favoured by many developers and content creators for its flexibility and customisability. At Welford, we have a wealth of experience as a Craft CMS agency, and we think it's one of the best options out there.
Craft CMS has an easy to use and responsive admin area, making it a breeze to navigate, make changes and add new content. The admin area is even available on mobile devices as well, so you can edit your website on the go (even if you're away from your laptop).
Have you ever felt the sinking feeling of setting something new live on your website, only to discover that everything is shifted out of place and nothing looks right? You'll never have to face that again, thanks to Craft CMS' live preview function.
Adaptive and bespoke
Thanks to its extensive library of plugins and close work with open source software, your Craft CMS website can be changed, expanded & customised to your exact needs & specifications. As Craft CMS developers, we're very familiar with this range and can help guide you to the right features for your business.

Craft CMS vs WordPress
Another giant in the CMS industry, WordPress, has a higher user count than Craft CMS, but numbers don't mean they're the best.
One area where Craft CMS really outdoes WordPress is in website security – while Craft CMS' annual plugin fee and constant updates keep it secure, WordPress plugins have been subject to attack before. For example, in 2020, 200,000 WordPress sites became vulnerable when a plugin was found to allow hackers to reset the website's entire database.
Additionally, Craft CMS is designed to be bespoke. WordPress template themes can seem appealing to those who don't have huge budgets since they're ready to go right away, but the best-looking themes get snapped up by multiple websites, and eventually, you end up with stacks of very similar websites.
While Craft CMS will take more effort to code and design at the start, this will pay for itself in terms of functionality and originality, allowing your website to be custom to your preferences. Using a Craft CMS agency like ours will set your website up for success from the get-go.
Craft CMS Plugins
What plugins are available with Craft CMS? Of course, the better question is what plugins aren't available – check out the Craft plugin store to see just how varied the selection is. Everything from accessibility and SEO to payment options, widgets, gadgets and all manner of things are available to make your website your own.
The page will show you what features the plugin has when the latest updates were and what version of Craft it's compatible with.
