Get ready for the new Plone: the features, stability, scalability, and best-in-class security of an enterprise CMS, combined with a modern, easy-to-use, and powerful front end based on state-of-the art web technologies
Easily Create Modern Web Layouts
The Plone 6 user experience has been redesigned from scratch to be awesome for power users and occasional users alike. It's easy to create adaptive layouts using a flexible and powerful blocks system built from the latest web technologies. There's no need for in-depth knowledge of how the web works or how the page will look on thousands of different devices - editors can split individual blocks into multi-column content that will automatically adapt to any device. Building complex, responsive pages with Plone 6 is effortless.
The blocks system is not limited to rich text. It will come with a faceted search block that allows editors to easily create sophisticated searches that make use of content metadata. Other blocks can present collections of content dynamically generated from a search. Plone has always included search, now the blocks system allows the search to be harnessed in new ways.
Form Builder, No-Code Content Types, Rich Ecosystem
Plone 6 also includes:
- A powerful form builder. Editors can create forms via drag and drop and define actions such as sending form data via email or storing it in CSV format for later use;
- No-code custom content types that can be created through the web, including metadata fields, behaviors and view templates;
- A rich ecosystem with more than 100 add-ons, even before it has been launched; an active and enthusiastic community of developers and companies is creating new add-ons every day.
Ready for Production
Hundreds of new features have been developed for Plone 6 during the past four years. Rest assured that far from compromising Plone's security, flexibility, maturity, and rich feature set, Plone 6 builds on top of those things.
Under the hood, Plone 6 is a battle-tested Plone 5.2 back-end working with the new front-end framework. Code-named Volto, this framework has been actively developed since 2017 and already powers high-profile government websites for Germany, Italy, and the European Union as well as websites for large universities and research institutions.
