Statamic CMS

Want a website that is custom-built but easy to maintain? Then Statamic may just be the right platform for you. Our experienced developers can assist you in building a stunning website from the ground up – one that looks good on the outside and functions seamlessly from within.

What is Statamic?

Statamic is a type of content management system (CMS) that is easy to use and visually simple. It’s lightweight, efficient, and comes with a super user-friendly control panel for managing content and running your site. It’s great if you would like to get developers on board to build a unique site while being able to manage and control features yourself.

Basically, Statamic gives you the best of both worlds: a beautiful bespoke website that, once live, can be managed independently.

Why use Statamic

We’re not tied to any one CMS. But Statamic really ticks all the boxes. Once your site is live, you can use Statamic easily to load content or make changes on your site – no need to understand HTML or know how to code.

It’s flexible, user-friendly, and easy to navigate, giving you and your team the independence to crack on and get end results.

Top 3 Benefits of using Statamic

  • Flexibility. Statamic is super flexible and allows you to upload a range of content. You can structure content according to your needs without being tied to rigid database schemas.

  • Performance. Since Statamic generates static files, websites built with it typically have fast loading times and efficient performance.

  • User Experience. The user-friendly control panel of Statamic makes content management and site administration intuitive for both developers and content editors.

Disadvantages of using Statamic

  • Learning curve. If you are used to traditional CMS platforms, you may need a little bit of time to familiarise yourself with its flat-file structure and templating system.

  • Limited ecosystem. Compared to more popular CMS platforms, Statamic has a smaller ecosystem of plugins. This might make finding specific features or solutions challenging.

  • You need a developer. Statamic is fantastic for building bespoke websites, but you can’t do it alone. You’ll need a team of developers who can work with you to build your site.

Statamic vs WordPress

As we say, at morphsites we're not tied to any particular CMS, and we certainly aren't going to knock one over another. But as we often get asked about WordPress, here are 2 key differences:

  • Built-in features. Both CMS platforms offer extensive capabilities, but the key difference lies in how they handle add-ons. With Statamic, you won't really need additional plugins because most functionalities are already built into the core features. This eliminates the need to search for and worry about compatibility issues with third-party plugins.

  • Consistency. WordPress has undergone numerous iterations over the years, resulting in various approaches to website development, which can sometimes be confusing. In contrast, Statamic sites maintain a consistent structure, making it easy to navigate from one to another without getting lost.

Our team will be there to help you make a success of your online platform. Have a chat with us to find out more about our bespoke development team.

It's essential to evaluate your specific business needs, resources, and goals to determine if Statamic is the right choice for your website. Consider your long-term goals for your website. If scalability, performance, and ease of maintenance are priorities, Statamic's static file generation and efficient performance may align well with your objectives.

To sum it up, bespoke web development is a way of creating utterly unique programs, sites, and systems that fit your specific requirements. While using pre-made templates on WordPress or other management platforms like WIX and Squarespace can make it easier to design your website, they can limit creative freedom and prevent you from building a site that is tailored to your customers. But with bespoke web development, you get a completely personalised website unique to you. No limitations, no boundaries.
