Pros

I wanted to love WordPress. It has so many great features and integrations and its very affordable.
If you are a person who has many thoughts that you would like to publish or perhaps you like fashion and want to show that interest, then WorldPress is your best friend.
WordPress is really an amazing content management system, that allows you to build stunning and amazing websites within few hours.

Pros

Once I integrated contentful in my project, it was really easy to use and I think it's very useful and powerful.
Easy API Integration, good search and filter with customisable columns, comments from other users, different content models rollback and version ability.
Contentful is a very easy to use solution for managing your content without having to develop a custom backend. It has many moderns features and a nice access control for your data.

Cons

As a result, I'm forced to disapprove and delete spam comments individually, and when you get hundreds of these kind of spam comments each week, you can imagine that it can be frustrating.
Wordpress is really limited in its features and functionalities. More than that, the support for customers is bad.
We've found ourselves stalled out badly with problems at times because a theme or plugin had terrible support.

Cons

There are aspects that are difficult, and sometimes hard to keep tabs on what is active and hard to back track if something does go wrong.
Frustrating, being treated like an imbecile with over simplified explanations of content types which still don't answer the question.
The worst negative could be that there are some cross sale situations where you may feel obliged to purchase a plugin to work with your content.

Contentful

So long, WordPress! Welcome to the future of nimble web development!

Reviewed 3 years ago

The free developer plan is amazing, and overall Contentful has made my life SO MUCH BETTER. I no longer have to worry about updates, databases, or clients breaking their sites.

Pros

The UI of Contentful is superb in its own right, but especially when compared to other similar CMS interfaces. Everything is laid out neatly, and it's easy to sort and edit your content. When paired with a static site generator like Gatsby, Contentful is WAY more safe, dependable, and low-maintenance than WordPress (which I'm sad to say, after being a WP dev for years, is a complete mess).

Cons

Modeling content can be tricky at first, especially since you can't have differing fields within a content type. But once you understand the general concept of "referencing," it becomes quite easy and even enjoyable to structure nested and/or complex data.

Contentful

Very inflexible when it comes to styling changes, use only if you have plenty of engineers

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

It is impossible for users to create elements that are totally out of line with the corporate design. Contentful also loads faster than many other CMS.

Cons

There isn't much I like about Contentful. It is impossible to copy entire pages without a lot of effort, which makes it very time-consuming to create new pages. While you can re-use existing elements, the problem is that if you change them, they are changed everywhere, and there is no way to just copy an element in order to use it as a new element (i.e., changes you make to it don't affect the element...
