How TidyCMS works?

Make your html-pages editable by adding CSS classes. You decide what users can edit in your design.

Make content areas editable by CSS class: editable

Click me! I'm editable!

This is how your client uses Tidy. Just click what you want to edit and start typing.

Change images and background images in layout with class: imgup

Tree in a field

Click label to change image

Elements and blocks can be moved, copied and removed with class: repeatable

I am a repetable region

Click move > Clone
to copy me

Forms, menus, news lists, product lists and so much more...

Try them out by in our demo or downloading our example:

Freedom at last!

Ever outperformed or hacked static HTML?

TidyCMS is a Finnish startup with one product (TidyCMS!) and one goal:

"To provide a faster and more usable alternative to WordPress and similar CMSs"

We think it's overkill to install a massive system for every site,
when 90 % of all sites could do with much less.


If you have questions about using Tidy, normally the fastest channel is support@tidycms.com.

However, as we're currently focusing on building Tidy2, we're taking a break from support. More about this in our blog post


If you want to drop by, you can find us at: Tykistökatu 4 D, 20520 Turku, Finland

It's like a mailing list but a lot cooler

Please be patient!

This feature is not implemented yet, but we're working on it!
