Craft is catching up though, and has some key advantages over WordPress. Designing websites in Craft is intuitive and flexible. WordPress was designed initially as a blogging platform, and leaves plenty to be desired when building a fully customized experience. Craft allows for a flexible and customized design, making your website to stand out and be unique from your competitors.

Adding and manipulating content is fast and easy to do, with few barriers in the way to stay connected to your content. Craft is also still a fairly small CMS, meaning it’s not bloated with thousands of plugins to sort through. The plugin catalog is easy to manage, and only filled with useful and powerful tools.

Is Craft CMS Secure?

Craft is very secure, with plenty of the latest and best safeguards in place to ensure your website stays safe. As well, Craft CMS websites are targeted less frequently than some of the more popular CMS’ like WordPress, meaning random security attacks will be much less frequent.

Is Craft CMS headless?

Craft is a hybrid CMS so you can use it as either a monolithic CMS (controlling the presentation of your website through the standard, built-in templating system) or you can use it as a headless CMS (allowing you to custom code all of the front end presentation using the GraphQL API).  You can also combine the two if you’d like, allowing you to use templates to control website display while building a headless presentation for your apps!
