The provided API is quite fast and reliable. When it comes to uploading media, Contentful makes this process easier and faster than other similar CMS tools. Besides, it is a secured platform, counting with a very reliable system of verification and control of input entries and it has a high level of flexibility, so you can structure your data in any way you want and. The company also provides help to integrate with a different application based on language Java, C# and many more . Contentful makes very easy to sort and edit your content.
The best tool for managing content without being worriend about HTML stuff. I recommend Contentful for those who are not good with development, but still want to build a nice landing page and with content.
This is a great tool to manage content. In my previous company, we worked with PatriotSystem and it was good, but Contentful is a better CMS in so many ways . Content API is quite fast and so reliable, all our Marketing actions can be completely done in a couple of minutes. Contenful CMS provide space a nice content management solution which is quite handy in working with the different project.
The interface is modern and very clean. It remains me of WordPress and how I’m a regular user for this platform, I could learn how to use it quickly. This familiarity made me felt like I already knew the software even before I started using it. The image usage is very simple to learn and modify. What I like the most is the ability to manage fields, being able to add, cut, move or remove them.
Contentful lacks of some spelling tools to check grammar. You have to add a plug-in in order to review the grammar of your content. Also, It does not integrate with Grammarly, what I consider to be the best tool for checking grammar, so you have to use another one. And, if you want to get the best out of Contentful, it requires some hard dev resources.
In comparison with other CMS applications, Contentful is the most intuitive, easy and effective. If you have to regularly work editing content, specially images for digital marketing, I would recommend Contentful for you.
Contentful is a very used tool in the Marketing department of my company. It performs as our selected platform for loading content into apps, rather if it is on iOS or Android, and to pull down cloud content. It is a great tool to make your content reach international audiences with specific topics or content type (video, image, audio, etc).
The ability to easily add new content models and create interdependencies between them, the GraphQL endpoint is a HUGE plus, the content creation interfaces are pretty intuitive and easy for beginners to use. Friendly support staff, and overall just gets the job done and gets it done well.
I would like the ability to preview linked media in the list view, as well as bulk uploading/editing. I'm finding that scripting is needed for some features that I'd expect to be available in the list view.
Map out your data model early, and try to stick to it. The more content you add, the harder it will be to migrate previous data without scripting.
Contentful is helping the San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus digitize and tag our 40-year media archive, opening our history and our story up to chorus members and the public at large. We'll be able to store, view, and enrich our history using advanced tagging, cross-referencing, and community input.
One of the key features of contentful is the flexibility to create and combine content through its template. What is make it really powerful is the graphQL API
With so many nested template is hard to preview for non technical person the final content, which sometimes require double effort
Dinamic content on any website, as well as, complex configuration settings
Contentful sites gracefully in the space between developers and content creators. As a solo dev, I've been able to give a team of 10 writers and 2 editors the ability to run with content and control it in a way with out static site builder that looks great and out-performs competitors on SEO.
It's getting better, but migrating content to new models is a bit tough. However as a solo designer/dev for Upsolve, it's also a matter of being constrained by time with other business needs.
Programmatically handling content is critical if we want to make more compelling web experiences and serve better SEO information to search engine crawlers. We're already dominating competitors with rich snippets.
A lot to love about Contentful. Very easy to use for the end user, slick and simple user interface and support for GraphQL. Awesom support and super-fast CDN. Easy to extend via Plugins and a very clean API.
Contentful has a notion of "Links" which can be many objects or one. However, would be great if we can model the reverse relationship without doubling the work (i.e. specify the children AND parent of each object).
Consolidating various CMS platform under one 'Content Platform', the benefits are speed, agility and one source of truth.
Contentful provides a lot of freedom in its actions. For example, I can build any front-end I want without having to change my CMS. This headless front-end is one of the best things from this platform. It provides several tools for content management, constantly offering linked content types, and it always keeps history of changes made to the content, so you’re able to undo every time.
Contentful is lacking of documentation, especially for entry level coders. The little documentation offered is too superficial, leaving behind some of the most important aspects of the platform. Also, it doesn’t have a way to organize fields within an entry, making entries with many fields hard to scroll through. Adding this would be a great asset.
Contentful is a great solution for small businesses and startups that has a large amount of content. Contentful will indeed store and categorize all of this content in the most effective way possible. It will also be very helpful if you want to speed up your time for page creation. A good recommendation would be to have some dev help to get everything before you decide to go full steam.
Contentful is by far our headless CMS in the Marketing department. It is especially good to build static websites, by integrating it with GatsbyJS and ReactJS. It is set in our company's primary website. Contentful definitely represents a modern, high-quality, low-maintenance solution.
We were looking for secure and fast backend for our mobile app and web page. Contentful is content oriented solution with very intuitive interface. There is no need to contact support, but when needed, solved problem instantly. API and its documentation are easy to use.
Nothing found to dislike so far. I hope this will not change in future.
Every time you need to handle large amount of data on multiple platforms, regardless of the presentation layer - you should consider Contentful as your main choice.
We are using Contentful for managing content in our mobile app and web page. The biggest benefit is time saving during managing content. Implementing multi localisation with Contentful went smoothly.
