Thanks to the way it’s designed, Platform 5 can do a ton and it’s getting better every day.

Platform 5 is engine based, meaning the core system handles key “engines” which then each get utilized by individual extensions that add things like a slider, carousel, SEO plugin, etc..

Therefore, each extension adds to the power of the entire platform and you can choose exactly which extensions make the most sense for you.

Here are it’s core features:

  • Real time content editing engine.
  • Drag and drop template design engine
  • Shortcodes and content editing engine
  • One click extension engine
  • Theme, profile, and meta settings engines

And these get extended. As of today there are over 35 extensions already live, and more will be added rapidly.

These add functionality like:

  • Sliders and Carousels
  • Various components like buttons, images, testimonials, heroes, mastheads and more…
  • Pre designed page templates
  • Complex post type oriented sections (for example a showcase)
  • New formats for popular plugins like WooCommerce
  • Admin customization
  • And this is just the beginning…

Here’s what the extension engine looks like:
