Build sites the way you like to code (or drag 'n' drop).

Pulse gives lots of flexibility in design. It fits the CMS around your design, rather than vice versa. Whether you like to hand code your sites or work with a popular site design tool, create fast and robust sites the way you like to roll.

Design the way you want to Start your 5 day FREE trial

I think for clients on simple sites this is the perfect CMS. Easy to template. Simple to use. The WYSIWYG is great.

Pulse is a cool CMS especially for designers afraid of coding. U can divide whole site into blocks and update it.
