I just downloaded the free version of Go CMS and tested it. Its simplicity is quite amazing. There are no admin pages and once you've logged in to your pages, you can begin to edit live. If you wish to edit via a mobile device (currently text only) just press and hold a Go container for two seconds and you will be requested to enter a password.
Go is a soft release, as Nick intends to add more features as time passes.
Go currently comprises four stacks and eight plugins that are accessible online. The four RapidWeaver stacks are the Base Stack, Blog Stack, Content Stack and Lock Stack. The online plugins are Single Image – Link and Alt Tag, Slideshow – Image Gallery, Lightbox – Image Gallery, Cartloom – eCommerce, Embed Video – YouTube & Vimeo, Google Maps and Soundcloud – Embed Audio. Not bad for starters.
Any content placed within a content stack is editable – ie, drop an image into the Go Container, and it will be editable; drop a Go Container into a stack and the the stack's content will be editable. And Go is compatible with a majority of themes, including Foundation and Foundry.
And did I mention that there is zero setup? None of the stacks contain any settings. If you drag a Base stack onto each of your pages and add some Content stacks, you can publish and begin editing already! And if you want to prevent people from viewing the page, add a Go Lock Stack.
If you prefer to add some basic content first, i.e. Text content, Headlines and Images, you can. However, your Headline formatting will need to be carried out online.
The bog stack is really cool. Click the + button once you are logged in, and add your new post. Before you begin, you might like to set the bog and blog type up by clicking the blog admin button.
And you'll be pleased to know that Go has backup and restore op[tions, so that if your client messes up, you can restore a previous version of the content.
Go CMS has a per-site price tag, but it is currently one of the cheapest options available for RapidWeaver – ideal for those on a tight budget. You can download Go free of charge and play with it. Once you are satisfied, you can click the purchase button on your new site to obtain a license. It's that simple.
