Article Management & Collaboration

\(^O^)/
From our article board to real-time editing, Jraft is built from the ground up to be collaborative.

(╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻
Collaboration in WordPress is poor, & has a heavy reliance on plugins or third party tools like Google Docs. Features like article board workflow management and calendar scheduling either aren't possible, or are facilitated by plugins which don't work as well.

Ease of Design

Jraft's component based approach is specifically designed for building publications. With over 100+ templates, you can customise everything visually.

Unless you're a coder, you'll need a visual design plugin or a template, both of which are more suited towards e-commerce sites.

Code Quality

Free SSL on all sites, backed by constant threat monitoring.

Also offers free SSL, but WP sites are known for their security vulnerabilities when not properly maintained.
