For years, hooox used WordPress as a Content Management System (CMS) for our clients’ websites. All went well until we were forced to acknowledge its limitations. After a number of experiments, we made the move to ProcessWire.
WordPress originated as a blogging system. That remains the core of the system. Which means that to create a good corporate or commercial site, you need to introduce a whole series of external plug-ins. And that causes problems. For every WordPress update (of which there are quite a few), we needed to test whether the new version was still compatible with the installed plug-ins. Result: enormous management overheads.
After a number of experiments with Drupal, Craft and other Content Management Systems, a web developer tipped us off about ProcessWire. We tried it out and were sold.
You rarely need extra plug-ins; most essential functionalities are already part and parcel of ProcessWire:
Finally, ProcessWire is an open-source system. This means that neither you nor we pay any licensing costs. It also means you avoid vendor lock-in: a treacherous system where a web agency builds your website on their exclusive CMS. With vendor lock-in, you’re effectively unable to leave—unless you have your website completely rebuilt from scratch by your new partner. But, when you use ProcessWire through hooox, you never need to contend with this risk.
