After being in beta since November 2014, MotoCMS 3.0 has finally arrived.
Powering over 140,000 websites across the world, MotoCMS is a website builder with a range of excellently designed templates, and a user interface renowned for its simplicity.
MotoCMS 3.0 brings in a new and “revolutionary approach” to color palette tweaking, easier media files management and, of course, responsive design. Here's an overview of what's new.
A Look at MotoCMS 3.0
MotoCMS 3.0 templates are have been available via TemplateMonster for a while, but now they're formally up for grabs on the MotoCMS website, witht eh company making sure everything was ship-shape before an official release.
With each one of the cool MotoCMS 3.0 templates you get:
- 100% responsive design;
- Improved WYSIWYG editor with drag-and-drop functionality;
- 2-minute step-by-step installation for hosting;
- New plugins and widgets (with more to come);
- Multi-language admin panel;
- 24/7 free support;
- Free automatic updates within a product etc.
Being totally responsive was something that MotoCMS was struggling with for a while. With Google's latest update making responsive design more important than ever for SEO purposes, MotoCMS have managed to bring their platform into the responsive safety zone with this update.
Perhaps the most notable new feature though, is the Color Picker, one of MotoCMS' newest innovations.
According to MotoCMS, “this small widget [Color Picker] has great powers for website tweaking. [it] should become a handy tool for color aficionados and for color theory newcomers.”
Color Picker shows main five colors of a template color palette with five additional sub-tones for each one (thus, you have 25 hues to work with).
When one colour is changed, all related elements across the entire website will be changed instantly. It's a great way to define a website's colour-set with consistency, from headers to buttons.
MotoCMS has come a long way with this update, making their already sleek interface a force to be reckoned with by getting faster and more Search engine friendly. It will certainly be interesting to see how they progress from here on out.
There are already over 70 MotoCMS 3.0 templates for users to experiment with, all of which can be purchased right here.
