Pros: There is a registration for the users of the site. Installing the script takes an average of 5 minutes, well, setting for yourself 20 minutes, this is if you set everything absolutely. Many opportunities for optimization for search engines. The script itself creates sitemap files and, in my opinion, even robots.txt, this is a huge plus. You can create categories and subcategories. Make watermarks on all downloaded images.

Cons: Some modules are difficult to configure, sometimes bugs appear in some of them. But all these problems are solved quickly and clearly through technical support.

Everything works well

Pros: In the network you can find a huge number of sites where you can download free templates for DLE. Setting templates is just as simple. you just need to fill in the host through the file manager and just include it in the administrative panel, putting the default design.

Cons: I've known the system for a long time, from time to time I create and configure websites for customers for it, until I noticed any serious shortcomings.

A good solution for an article site

Pros: I created the first news portal for the third year is under the control of DLE, and I, and my customer, they are mostly satisfied with it. The engine copes with the tasks perfectly, thanks to the many settings. With enough traffic, the load on the server is minimal.

Cons: The engine modules are very small and they are installed for a long time. The site running this CMS is poorly protected from spam and has a huge amount of duplicate code. A little expensive licensed version.

Pros: For a quality news site, I personally would advise DLE. The advantages of its paid version is that those support the script is carried out year-round. Enjoy the use of the script!

Overall: One might say that paid versions of CMS are a disadvantage, but as you know, for convenience and good functionality you have to pay.

Pros: CMS DataLife Engine has an excellent modern design and functionality. There are a lot of useful modules for it. The system is characterized by simple control and easy mastering. When creating a site, you can use a huge number of free templates.

Cons: It takes a lot of time to install the modules. The paid version is quite expensive and in some versions there are bugs. For professionals it has poor functionality.

Pros: In DLE, there is such a function as "Update site map" and after we update it, there is an opportunity to click on the "tell search engines" button. The engine informs the search robots about the appearance of new content on the site in order that they necessarily visit our site in the near future and index the newly added news. Also there is the possibility of mass mailing to registered users. In order to inform them about the appearance of new items on the site.

Cons: When I first saw the DLE engine, it seemed to me that it was very complicated and it would take months to deal with it. In fact, it turned out that the system is intuitive and, most importantly, functional.

A lot of opportunities, but the price is high

Pros: Data Life Engine is a multi-user news engine for organizing your own media and portals on the Internet. Thanks to a well-designed system of publishing and editing news, the system is one step ahead of its nearest competitors and provides a huge number of opportunities.

Cons: Everything in this content management system is good apart from cost. But as soon as your site becomes profitable, this moment will become insignificant.

A wide variety of settings and power

Pros: Due to the precise configuration of the kernel of the system, it does not require a large server from the server and is suitable not only for small, but for large projects. The ability to install one of hundreds of thousands of different design options will make the process of working with the site a real fairy tale.

Cons: Some of my colleagues and friends complained about the complexity of setting this engine, but I did not notice anything: everything works clearly, without bugs.

A good product, I will advise friends.

Pros: Many years ago I opened the site using Dateliff Engine, the license was acquired by a good response from my colleagues. It took not so much time to deal with the engine. The design was ordered from third-party developers and the engine was modified to fit its needs in-house. After so much time (more than 10 years) I can say that working with the DataLife Enterprise is comfortable for both users and administrators. Thanks to the team Datelife.

Overall: Happy users.

Launched some successful websites on this CMS.

Pros: I use this engine on all my sites. The PHP code is not complex and will be understood by any beginner programmer if he wants to write his own supplement. I have a couple of sites where there is a lot of traffic, the PHP code and requests are well optimized and I do not have to rent expensive servers. Updates are released regularly, there is no vulnerability. In general, I recommend all this engine, not only to beginners but also professionals.

Overall: Ease of management, administration is very convenient. Low price, it is not necessary for large sites to rent expensive servers.

I use the product for more than 3 years and was satisfied.

Pros: I'm satisfied with the speed of the CMS and the minimum load on the server. Friendly website control panel and internal modules. I think that for me the ease of use is important and the DLE fulfills its functions 100%

Cons: There is no possibility to update from the control panel, every time you have to go to the site, download update archives and upload to the server, it's inconvenient.

Also an inconvenient module for working with advertising, I can not insert advertisements in the body of the article, only with my hands.

Overall: Speed of work, easy use, priority support

In my opinion this is one of the best site management system. I use it for about 10 years.

Pros: A huge number of different functions and ease of use. Priority direction of this system is to optimize the load on the server. It consumes a minimum amount of resources when a large visit is made. Still very much like the fact that the creators of this system pays great attention to search engine optimization.

Cons: I would like to be updated more often. Now they go out about 4 times a year. Security patches, when a vulnerability is detected, of course comes out right away. I want of course even more different built-in functions and capabilities.
