Webflow CMS barebones WordPress

Webflow CMS is a barebones WordPress installation jammed into a Photoshop-like interface writes Cassandra Khaw, on Ars Technica UK.

“The Webflow CMS allows users to create or use pre-existing “Collections”—templates for dynamic content types. From there, you can then determine the kind of fields associated with the Collection, such as whether they’re mandatory to be completed, if they’re to be linked to another Collection, and what kind of minimum word counts are to be expected. These criteria are universal for any instance of the Collection. All Blog Posts, for example, will draw from the parent Blog Posts Collection.

Additionally, the Webflow CMS also introduces Dynamic Lists, which permit users to arrange their Collections in a modular format, and the option to have content editors fiddle with your website on-the-fly. In the future, the platform will be expanded to include e-commerce integration and the ability to control access with a custom set of API keys. While rudimentary-sounding, what makes the Webflow CMS work is how effortlessly it puts it all together. The tutorial video (embedded above) shows how quickly a Dynamic List can be modified through its UI, as opposed to adjusting a CSS stylesheet.”
