Cargo2 Is Amazing.

// Front End Developer at phenomenon

What do you like about Cargo Collective?

It’s a brand new approach to web design (like just came out a few months ago) and it’s generating a nice amount of (deserved) hype in the digital creative landscape. Not only does it offer blog authoring just like it’s main competitor wordpress, it takes the cake where wordpress does not: speed.

Cargo2 has a ridiculously smooth back end experience. They’ve managed to create the ease of use that any developer or designer could feel at home with.

It offers the basics of design for every element, while offering easy access to custom code if needed. Gone are the days of 10 second page loads, adding multiple plugins and slowing down your Wordpress site with each new piece of content you add.

Cargo gives you the power of real-time visual and editorial modification, something that has been attempted by Wordpress template developers many times, only to be hindered by a criminally slow PHP backend.

In terms of stability - Cargo shines. Templates, add-ons, and anything in your CMS is produced by the Cargo team, so there’s no need to worry about third party compatibility or bugs.

Cargo is based out of Los Angeles, and their support team is extremely responsive to any requests or questions, something you usually have to pay for when it comes to wordpress.

What do you dislike about Cargo Collective?

It's still new, so it's not so much of a dislike, but I wish there were more animated background options.

What have you been using it for and what problems did Cargo Collective solve?

I use it for a webshop, it led me to build a stripe checkout system and it was so easy to integrate into my website

Outdated website

// Content Director at Fotoref

What do you like about Cargo Collective?

It used to be a good platform for graphic designers but it's no longer standing in a competition for any other website building platform.

What do you dislike about Cargo Collective?

It is outdated, not mobile ready. It's really a dinosaur of website building. There are much better alternatives available now.

What have you been using it for and what problems did Cargo Collective solve?

I used to build my website but it's really inconvenient bug-riddled tool today with very weak customer support.
