About Hero Framework

Heroic open source software

Hero Framework is a white label, open source PHP content management system (CMS). White label means it is not an original product: it has been resold by Electric Function. Open Source means users are free to modify the coding (and enact change on their website accordingly). PHP is a common language used in Open Source software. A content management system is one that organises the look and feel of your website.

The parent company, Electric Function, have positioned themselves in the market to cater for small to medium sized businesses. For non-tech savvy users, they have also developed a hosted option which requires less of you in terms of programming/coding. That said, to get maximum value from Hero Framework, it would make sense to either enlist the help of a developer in the initial setup of your site.

Reviews & Testimonials

“As I mentioned earlier, without the requirement to attach multiple images to entries, the entire process of installing Hero, learning enough about how it works to get the job done, and building the site would’ve only taken a couple of hours. The gallery module thing threw a bit of a spanner in that works. Because of that I probably wouldn’t use Hero again for projects that require adding multiple images to lots of entries. But for sites that only have a single gallery, or a single page of galleries, or for lots of other scenarios, I think Hero would be a good choice. Those other scenarios also include the ability to do ecommerce which I haven’t tested out, so it’d be good to hear from anyone who has used it for that purpose.”
