Plate CMS vs website- or pagebuilder

We often get the comment that the Plate CMS looks a bit like DIVI or another page builder. The comparison with a website builder like Wix or Weebly is also made quickly. Although I understand the comparison, there are some important differences between Plate CMS and these website- and pagebuilders. Discover the differences in this blog.

Plate CMS is not a plugin

Have you ever used a page builder like DIVI or Visual Composer within WordPress to easily manage websites? These and other plugins are loaded into the source code and slow down the loading time of your websites. Look at the PageSpeed of the Visual Composer website, for example.

Using Plate CMS does not affect the page speed of your website at all, because we don't load any code, but put a smart layer over the website so it is manageable from the front-end. You have all the advantages of a fast pagebuilder, but not the adverse effects on the performance of your client's website.

Plate CMS is scalable

If you have ever used a website builder, you know that you have a lot of freedom to make changes within the framework of your template. The disadvantage is that you have to make do with the features and the template that you use. Moreover, such themes load so much code, without you really needing it if you want to make a simple website, for example.

At Plate, we always customise your CMS, depending on the features you need within your website. This ensures that you only use the necessary features and do not have any overkill. Do you want to expand? Plate CMS is super dynamic and we easily extend the CMS for your website with new parts, so you and your customers can continue to enjoy managing websites.
