This article is many years old, and since then ExpressionEngine has gone through a ton of transition. While I currently prefer Craft CMS as my go-to for content management systems, EE is a staple in the industry and still has a lot of attractive qualities. This assessment is extremely outdated since it was based on a very early iteration of their new version "3" platform.
I’ve been using the latest and greatest version of ExpressionEngine to develop my personal site. I love the new UI, some of the new features, but lets just say it’s not ready for prime time.
I took a risk, and wanted to push through the issues that I’ve encountered. I’ve learned a lot, and I’m glad I’m running the latest version. It’s great to see the advancement of EE, but I’m still a little disappointed. I was hoping for a bigger change. I was hoping for some more native features. Yes, there has been a clean, fresh UI. Yes, the backend is updated. I just can’t shake the feeling of what’s the big deal in updating?
Again, I’m excited and happy to be developing on this latest platform, BUT it’s not without it’s issues.
