Great Website Building Tool

Our website designer used this program and it's been a lifesaver for our organization. There is a learning curve, but it's easy to learn.

Pros

Functionality is great and ease of using once you learn can save a business a lot of time and frustration.

Cons

There's a learning curve, but it's a small one

A great and flexible CMS

I was in love with ExpressionEngine and used it for almost all my project (big and small) for 4 years or so. If you have a big project it can handle it like a charm!

Pros

ExpressionEngine was one of the first CMS to support extensively custom fields. Via its plugin architecture it was possible to shape content to fit your needs. Moreover its template system was great and HTML free (meaning that you were in full control of the code). ExpressionEngine was a pricy CMS since two years ago when it eventually turned OpenSource, which is a great news.

Cons

The great template engine was not supported in the forum and member section of the site, so code this sections was a real pain...

Good Foundation for Heavily Content Managed Apps, A Bit Dated

It was good for a period of time, but now we are transitioning to Craft.

Pros

The platform was robust and allowed us to create a complex event management platform layered on top of Expression Engine. We were able to do most of the things we wanted and it served its purpose.

Cons

Popularity seems to be waning as more companies are shifting to Craft, which has a simpler interface and we find is easier to use.

A useful CMS whose best days are behind it

I have used ExpressionEngine for several sites, from basic four pagers to full ecommerce solutions. For a few years, ExpressionEngine was my "go to" CMS. However, over the years support has dried up, and it is no longer the first CMS I choose for a new project.

Pros

When I started using ExpressionEngine I liked the variety and quality of add-ons and extensions that were available. It produced clean code, and was highly extensible. Built on CodeIgniter, it was relatively easy to customise with a little knowledge.

Cons

Over time, many of the add-ons and extensions have lost developer support. Many key development teams have left the platform. As such, it is harder to create sites that fulfil the requirements of clients.

Reasons for choosing ExpressionEngine

Quality of code.

Very flexible and dynamic CMS

It's a great CMS and I wouldn't hesitate to build any site or process on top of it.

Pros

It's feature complete and extendable, UI isn't just an afterthought

Cons

Wordpress gets more plugins and more attention in general, so EE has smaller dev base
