Pulse 6.0.1 : Early Beta release with easier to customize HTML templates (Free Pulse Core) ! 🏁

Hi everyone,

We've been working on an early beta to make it easier to customize an HTML template. We are first posting the free version as a preview.

Free users: Download Pulse 6.0.1 Core Beta

What's New:

The feature limitations of Pulse Core (free for most) are:

  • Limited to 1 user.
  • Automatic upgrade feature is not available.


I'm a paid user. Where can I find the full Pulse 6 and Pulse 6 Slim?

Both are available in the dashboard. Click the version history button to see Pulse 6.0.0 Slim Beta.

Does Pulse Core include support for RapidWeaver, Blocs and 2-factor authentication?

Yes, it includes the same support as the standard PulseCMS version.

Can I share the 1 login with multiple people?

Yes. While you cannot create more than one user/password, you are free to share the login information.

What if I or my clients generate over $400,000 per year?

You or your clients will need to buy a license to PulseCMS if their business generates more than that. If your income or revenue exceeds $400,000, you will need to purchase a license for production use. You can still use PulseCMS Core for development or evaluation until you're ready for production.

Why the $400,000 limit on Pulse Core?

We want to make PulseCMS sustainable. We're experimenting with this as a more careful initiative than making PulseCMS fully free.

Is Pulse Core open source?

Not quite. Because you cannot publicly share or redistribute your code modifications. Typical open source licenses such as GPL or MIT would allow this. However, the source code in Pulse Core is fully visible in the ZIP file, and individuals can modify it. It is a proprietary license with source code.

We hope you enjoy the latest version of PulseCMS, and we look forward to your feedback!


Blocsapp has just released v5. It has removed the ability to do any new sites in pulsecms. You can still publish sites that have cms blocs, but you cant add any new. Norm has posted that v6 of blocs will completely remove pulsecms. Since they are now supporting wordpress.

Good to know! I still have a few legacy sites with Blocs/Pulse, but I wonder if it really changes anything. I never used the "Blocs Pulse Bric" anyways, and just used the "Blocs Code Widget" instead and just put regular Pulse tags in those. Worked great.

Chances are I'm never going to build another Blocs site, as I'm almost entirely WordPress now, but if somebody has v5, it would be nice to know if it still works the way it is written up here - https://docs.pulsecms.com/1.0/common-problems/blocs-and-pulsecms-tips-and-errors

Re: Bloc support... We contacted the Blocs author and he confirmed that Pulse support will continue.
