What They’re Saying About EE

This is a on-going series of entries where I highlight EE experiences.

ExpressionEngine is the most finicky CMS I’ve ever used. I’m not sure how they get people to pay for it.

It’s a conspiracy!

I think he’s talking about the license levels. Commercial, Freelancer, non-commercial, MSM with 3 sites or 9. Upgrade or new. Non-transferable.

Here’s an idea. Split the difference, make one license, and who cares what people do with it.

I’m mostly kidding.

The only reason EllisLab even tries to make these different “levels” of license available is to make lower-cost levels available to users. I’m okay with that.

As for me, I’d rather not see EE as a $499 base product.
