Simple, at its core.

October CMS was engineered to be easy — for both developers and users. At its core, we’ve used long-standing programming principles to create a brilliantly simple CMS that makes web development easier.

Laravel: The Best PHP Framework

October CMS was built on Laravel, the best PHP framework. It includes all of the tools and classes necessary to build amazing websites, and we’ve made it even more powerful with a set of simple and flexible features.

Simple for Developers

What You Code is What You Get

October CMS doesn't impose restrictions on page structure, HTML, or CSS markup. It won’t generate or convert code, and you don’t need any new framework knowledge.

One Page, One File

October CMS creates individual files for each page and other templates. Themes are completely manageable with Content Version Systems like Git. You can edit pages in the built-in Editor or your favorite code editor.

Building Pages Quicker

Build pages quicker and easier using CMS page Components. Just add a Component to your page and configure it with Inspector, the visual tool for managing components.

Fast, Flexible Template Engine

October CMS uses Twig, a simple template language for web designers. It won't slow you down, and it automatically takes care of tedious tasks like escaping.

A Built-In Code Editor

Works With Your Workflow

October CMS is fully compatible with PHP Composer package manager, and that compatibility includes plugins and themes from the Marketplace, complex dependencies, and private repositories.

Built-In Asset Combiner

CSS and JavaScript assets can be combined and minified with just a single tag in your CMS templates. Combined assets reduce page load times and server traffic.

Build Multilingual Sites with Ease

October CMS includes a Multisite feature that allows you to manage and display content in multiple languages and tailor your website appearance for specific audiences.

Save Your Time with Tailor

With Tailor, you can create solutions like a custom blog, a product catalogue, customizable landing pages and lot more in minutes rather than hours or days.

Onboarding new team members to October CMS takes less time than other CMS platforms, because it’s built on Laravel — the simplest, most common PHP framework.
