Thanks for the article evan. The proposition that sqsp is not COMPLETELY customisable is untrue. Whilst the bulk of users will no doubt use the built in templates sqsp has to offer, the design freedom (I’ve found anyway) to be greater than wordpress.

We’ve built over 30 sites for clients using sqsp and all have been created from an initial custom concept inside illustrator / photoshop and applied to sqsp no problems.

True the 3rd party plugins / addons aren’t there as in wp but more the most part they arent required as integration is easy with embedding other services / code into sqsp sites and will even easier in v6 of sqsp.

All the best ! … saul
