Let me say that so far I have not yet encountered an issue that I do not like.
To know that Contentful is the best for all CMS.
Management of web contents.
I use Contentful to post contents on the web that enables me to promote company brand..
Pros: Once you get the building blocks and templates in place then anyone can make a landing page.
Cons: I don't have any complaints, they have met all our needs.
Contentful is GREAT at modeling content. It's awesome to be able to model your content to represent your actual content and deliver it via simple SDK's and leave the rendering of that content to your web application, mobile app, etc... It also makes re-using content really simple.
I'd like to see more built-in field types. The new rich text editor is pretty good, but is missing things that are required for it to be truly useful in a web app setting.
Also, with lots of content, the content editor can be a little overwhelming. You can save custom views which is basically just a single content type filter. Would be great to be able to create views that combine several related types of content, filter by a property, etc...
Right now we're utilizing Contentful for our non-profit's web site. The big benefits have been independence from developers and ease of content entry. It's also extremely fast!
User Interface: The UI is a breeze to use; it took 10 minutes to really navigate the platform.
Training: It was easy for me as the project lead to train our staff, interns and our volunteer who is a mature adult (>50 years old).
Localization: Adding additional languages is also very easy!
I haven't come across any dislikes yet, to be very honest!
This is the first platform we've used to organize content for our mobile app; before Contentful we had an ancient custom portal which was clunky and frankly, outdated. The benefits are endless!
Getting started was very quick. We don’t have to worry about security updates, fixing issues that cause downtime, or managing the global network that serves the CDA. We don’t have to worry about developing/supporting the core features of the CMS UI, and a lot of what we need exists in Contentful as standard fields or UI patterns. Over the lifespan of our project, we have constantly noticed improvements in functionality and admin/editing UI. The continuous development of Contentful is evident with daily use. The CMA is also quite nice, offering clear verification steps during migrations that make for good record keeping.
Some developer-facing tools/docs are lacking, but that has improved over time. Still, it can be difficult to find the docs you need unless you know the terminology you’re searching for (e.g. UI Extension SDK). Building more relational queries in a single request (i.e. using GraphQL) would be very nice, but that function only comes at very high price tiers. Multilingual data entry UI really needs improvement. For a site that supports many languages the UI becomes unmanageable with duplicated fields everywhere. Although Contentful is often marketed as a “backend-free” solution, any amount of customization to the existing CMS patterns involves some backend work, either within the consumer app or with the CMA doing migrations and so forth.
We built a content publishing system. We have rapidly evolved a legacy system of PDF downloads to a modern, mobile-friendly CMS.
Model creation with the available wide variety of field types is great.
The basic Markdown text field editor covers lots of use cases.
Resizing images by just adding optional query parameters to the URL is magic.
The content model is very flexible.
The Contentful content model is flexible, I'd even say too flexible for a simple paged website. It takes a while to grasp the Contentful-way of thinking about content. Not being able to categorize Models hurts in discoverability and creates a mess that can only be salvaged by namespacing them (e.g. "Page - Home ", "Page - About ") and then filtering ("Save as view" helps a lot here).
It doesn't seem as easy to edit for laypeople as say WordPress, but I can't back that up.
Multilanguage editing view could be improved I feel, displaying all languages at once can be overwhelming.
Take a while to read the documentation regarding content modelling and think through your content architecture carefully.
Built a non-profit flyer-type website.
Pros: The layout is clean. It helps us managing content in many different languages in one place.
Cons: It took me quite some time to figure out how Contentful works with all kind of layers in translations, products, pages and attributes. Sometimes you lose track of where you are in all those layers.
Another thing is that it sometimes takes a long time for updates to go through the publishing queue. Especially when more people are working on it at the same time.
Overall: We use Contentful to manage content on more than 10 websites in multiple languages.
Pros: I like how easy and quick it is to use. There are some things that are bit difficult, but for the most part its very simple and a great way to run a website.
Cons: There are aspects that are difficult, and sometimes hard to keep tabs on what is active and hard to back track if something does go wrong
Overall: Overall my experience has been good. Once I got a rough tutorial I had a pretty good handle of how to use it. There are still aspects I don't know how to use, but of what I do know its pretty fun website creator
Pros: The user interface of Contentful is great in comparison to the other sites.
The user interface is easy to use.
It is very easy to locate content.
Best API capabilities.
Cons: I'm really satisfied with Contentful, but the interface can be improved to the best.
Overall: I like to recommend you to use Contentful, because it is user friendly, and more professional in developing your projects.
