Progress Sitefinity

Sitefinity is a great fit for medium to enterprise level websites that require a robust WCM solution that can integrate with other systems, be customized to meet business requirements and can scale as needed. Implementation will require a partner or individual that is well-versed in Sitefinity. If implemented correctly, managing content for non-technical and business users is very simple and straightforward.

Cons

Progress Sitefinity

  • It doesn't work well in Chrome. When we first implemented it, our vendor told us to only use Chrome, but there are so many things that don't work in Chrome that we no longer can use it.
  • I wish Sitefinity had an in-text editor. When I'm making a really small update, it'd be nice to click an edit button on a page and either fix it right there, or at least use that button to open that page in Sitefinity (old Ektron had that!).
  • Our department hates when we're editing a page, finish, and go back into the Pages menu and the menu we were working in is closed, or a different one is open. It'd be really nice if our place was saved.
  • I wish there was a way to keep the WYSIWYG editor open to full size all the time.

It is very easy to administer for non-technical folks. The editor and backend interface is among the best I've seen.

Alternatives Considered

Progress Sitefinity

All continent management systems are built to do basically, the same thing...manage content. When Trellist makes a CMS recommendation to a client, it is primarily based on the project requirements, how easy it is to customize the CMS, how intuitive it is for the content owners, and cost. Sitefinity isn't always the right answer, but it often satisfies all the requirements and we are very comfortable knowing that we made a sound recommendation
