Stay Tuned: Platform 5 Launches Next Week!

After 18 months of development, PageLines Platform 5, the fifth generation of PageLines, is ready for public launch next week.

Backstory: Who Platform 5 will be for…

With PL5 we’ve gone back to our roots of focusing on web professionals. Web professionals are people that make websites for a living.

In this, we started by asking web designers what their frustrations were when working with WordPress. We found that there was primarily two frustrations we could address. Web professionals want to:

  • Create awesome websites, only faster.  Less reinventing the wheel and less debugging frustration.
  • Give clients something that the client can then edit without coding.

Platform 5 aims at solving both these problems and doing so elegantly.

Other stuff we’ve announced…

We’ve already announced many aspects of how PL5 is architected:

  • Javascript Driven – Meaning its super fast, real time and uses less server resources.
  • Extension Based – The power of PL5 comes from its core simplicity and the power and extensions.
The new PL5 interface uses the WP admin bar and sidebar style layout.
