I just can’t see my typical clients wanting to pay $28 a month for a CMS and your experience hunting around the internet for somebody still involved with the project effectively makes it a non starter. Perhaps there are some Blocs users actively using Cushy, otherwise I would be inclined to remove it as an option in project settings.
There was a post yesterday on the forum from somebody having issues with October, just as I found myself, but leaving that aside (which you cannot ) it just didn’t seem like a viable option for clients when you have all that code in plain view for editing. Features are important, but so is the appearance and it’s hard to convince clients they should pay for a CMS unless it is clearly better than Wordpress.
SurrealCMS apparently has blog functionality coming before long, however it is untested with Blocs 3 as far as I know and I don’t think I’ve heard it mentioned more than once or twice on the forum in a couple years.
@DerekDigital I think it would be useful if you could detail some of the features you would like to see based on your experience with different client jobs. I know of one or two possibilities in the pipeline but developers need to know what is expected. If anybody else has any thoughts it would be great to hear.
One observation I would make is that there have been several posts lately about CMS issues and options, but this is actually a good sign. It means Blocs is being taken more seriously by designers, who are excited by the potential, but need a solid CMS to meet client demands. Once that capability is available it will be like one of those Steve Jobs “Boom” moments.
