Hey DevBest, I have recently been working on a CMS for a project of mine and would love your guys' feedback about the way it looks.

I plan on making a custom backend for this but I'm just too lazy.

It looks okay but to me it just looks like other retro edits have been put together, not a bad thing but maybe expand on the design a little, looking forward to seeing it finished 🙂

I wouldn't go as far as calling this a Heavy RevCMS edit, it looks pretty basic to me, like Dec said, just work that has been put together from all around other retro edits. Good luck on your project nonetheless.

Well, I appreciate all of the feedback, i plan on making a different sort of login box and what not to make it more unique but; the me page is different compared to the rest is no where near completed yet.

I think it looks alright, a bit of an old style imo?
If I were you, I'd probably move your boxes align perfectly eg. how the red square represents Just like you've done on the me page, everything aligns smoothly

And if plan on making your own design, I surely hope that you have mobile first in your thoughts - especially now when nitro's arround

I don’t know why you’ve renamed this considering all you’ve done is effectively build a RevCMS skin. Which is fine, but, it’s not the same thing as making your own CMS; so it’s fundamentally wrong to rename it.

The style is aesthetically disastrous and looks like every hotel ever. It’s very bland and contrasty so it feels like being stabbed in the eyes to look at. I’d like to see more colour and creative use of images rather than just a black and white box with a blue header.

I agree with @Maatt. You renamed the entire CMS and like you said, there's no backend to it besides RevCMS meaning it's just a skin although you've also mentioned creating a custom backend for it. Try coding out functions that RevCMS/BrainCMS doesn't have and you can call it your very own CMS.

Thats the plan to do, I wanna do something with react as the backend of the CMS.

Imo you're better of making your own cms (or atleast use something newer) if u decide to go that route. Atleast for me it doesn't make sense to implement react into something as outdated as rev?

I mean by all mans feel free to do so, but to me, it doesn't seem appealing to use rev by any means

oop- I'm slow at replying but; What I meant was making a custom backend to this theme instead of suing revCMS because revCMS is clearly outdated and old; You're right, I am most certainly better off making a my own CMS rather than revCMS. But I believe you had a misunderstanding or i had a misleading comment, i mean't a custom cms with the backend in node, like react.

React is a frontend library, you're getting things mixed up. You need to figure out what you actually want to achieve with this - if you're in it for the sake of just doing the frontend, learning React (which is my my preferred with TypeScript) or another JS frontend library would be a very good start, as it's a good skill to master these, and the retro community lacks projects adheering to up-to-date technology (across the whole stack actually) instead of using raw and bloated html/css on a php framework from 2010 or what do I know.

Don't take up constructing a whole CMS from scratch if you're only doing it for the sake of other people, but if you're serious about it you can either use an existing CMS such as Heroic (JS/TypeScript as far as I remember) or ARES (PHP) - don't take me up on either of those, they are just the one's that came to mind, haven't used them myself.

If you want to make your own backend from scratch (and it sounds like you would prefer Node), you would have to look at something like Express or NestJS. You don't do backend with React, that's meant for making the user client.

Of course I don't know at what skill level you are, so take this with a grain of salt and do your own thing.

Good luck :)
