Plone 5 demo logoSince Plone 5 was pre-released, we decided to provide internet users with the ability to test its capabilities. Plone 5 comes with a lot of enhancements, greater flexibility and control.

You can “touch and feel” new features by going to http://plone5demo.quintagroup.com/.

Demo website has account that gives users rights and permissions of site administrator. This user role provides access to all Plone features, such as adding content, publishing content, managing site users and groups, configuring site settings, etc.

Plone 5 Demo site contains several illustrative presentations of popular add-ons, including themes, custom forms (collective.easyform package allows creation of forms through the web), and embed service (collective.embedly package allows to embed video, images and other rich media files to Plone simply by providing their URL).

Plone 5 features

Plone 5 became faster. Now it uses Chameleon template rendering engine that reduces rendering time by 30%. New features and functionality you can experience with Plone 5 and on our demo website are listed below.

Theming

The new default theme is called Barceloneta. It is responsive out of the box and compiled with LESS. Diazo theming is enabled by default, so this theme can be edited through the web. Plone 5 uses HTML5 and allows choosing front-end framework, like Bootstrap.

The content management toolbar was redesigned and now users can manage content using pull-out panel. It can be expanded from one icon to full toolbar and repositioned. It is separated from content for easier styling, so users can always see a correct view of the pages.

Content Management

TinyMCE became more accessible and mobile friendly. Drag&drop uploads and content reordering are now also available.

Dexterity content types are now used in Plone out of the box. Products.Archetypes, Products.ATContentTypes, archetypes.schemaextender are available as add-ons, mainly for older content. For instance, content migrations can be customized with a help of schema extender.

Multilingual functionality is now shipped with Plone by default, so you can always translate your content and keep translations in order.

Security

Plone was always known as the open source CMS with the strongest security available. Plone 5 can boast automated Cross Site Request Forgery (CSRF) and click-jacking protection. Security levels can be customized based on the needs of particular website.
