"[I] just wanted to say how much I love your Content Snippet tool... With our budget being very tight right now, we can't afford to spend a lot of resources on generating new, relevant content so this has allowed us to take what we already have and re-purpose it in new ways. We're also encouraging publishers to do the same on their sites and set up these pages as Sponsored Content opportunities. 

I have said so many times how screwed we would be right now if it wasn't for our move to Locable :)" - Rachael Oppy, Digital Content Director, Natural Awakenings

The Last "Website" You'll Ever Need

A portion of all membership fees go into maintenance and new features for the Community Content Engine so we're always getting better as the network grows but if you have a pet feature that isn't at the top of our road map you can have it prioritized for a fraction of the cost of building it yourself.

See what Steven Jack, former editor at, had to say about the Community Content Engine

Stability. The Locable Community Content Engine is incredibly stable. In the local news business where breaking news happens all the time, it’s essential to have a CMS you can trust. I’ve never worked on a more reliable system. Outages are virtually non-existent.

Simplicity/Ease of Use. With the Locable Community Content Engine, a publisher can have an article with photos posted in less than a minute. Five easy steps allow publishers with breaking news to be the first to get the story online.

Flexibility and Control: The Locable Community Content Engine allows individual publishers to organize their sites in countless different ways. I especially love being able to control the elements of my homepage order to make it the most relevant and usable for my readers.
