WordPress is a necessary evil for many websites (ours included), but dealing with its clunky interface no longer has to be. PageLines is introducing Platform 5 for web developers, a set of plugins that offer drag-and-drop ease to compliment WordPress’ power.
Platform 5 also offers real-time editing, so you can see what your site will look like ahead of publication. It also works with current WordPress themes; it’s just making the editing easier.
New York, meet the world’s tech scene
5,000 Tech leaders are coming to NYC this November to learn and do business. This is your chance to join them.
PageLines also says you can add a “limitless” amount of plugins for your site with Platform 5. There are plenty of them, too; to start, Platform 5 offers everything from parallax scrolling to user profiles, so you’re bound to find what you need.
Platform 5 is free to use. PageLines is monetizing by offering a library of ‘pro’ extensions.
Though it may not be quite as simple as Weebly, Wix or Squarespace, Platform 5 is offering a robust set of tools that is highly customizable and scalable. For those that feel they’re punching a bit above Wix’s weight class, Platform 5 is worth a look.
