A Quick Perch CMS Review

By Mike Johnston June 24, 2009 (Updated: June 10, 2013) Reviews

We came across a very interesting little CMS that we thought we'd share with you via a quick Perch CMS Review. When it says it's a really simple CMS it's not kidding.

If you've ever played with the likes of CushyCMS or other similar products that allow you to add tags to existing pages which in turn enables them to be editable by the interface, then you'll feel right at home with Perch.

The difference, however, is that Perch is available for download and can be hosted on your own network as opposed to being hosted on someone elses.

Perch is not free but is available for £35 and there are no other fees after this.

Here is a video that showcases the product.

It's quite easy to use and doesn't take much to set up. You can create your own demo install to try it out if you like. Here are some screenshots from a demo we created to help introduce you to the product.

Here is the default interface once you log in that allows you to manage your content.

You can filter your content by type using some handy menus on the left:

It's a nice small product for a reasonable price and if you are looking for something simple and effective to allow you clients to have an easy way to manage their sites, this might be a good option to consider.
