  • Encouraging consistency in the design of content across pages and ensuring content updating by emailing editors when pages haven't been updated after set amount of time.
  • Flexible navigational structures and design elements such as clam-shell for FAQ sections.
  • Supports responsive design to handle screen sizes from multiple types of devices.
  • Good management of versions for both pages and files/images and good publishing workflow.
  • Good quick image editing capabilities to get the image on the page.
  • Titan requires some training and users should have fairly good technology skills. Our organization has moved toward more central editing of web content because distributed staff using Titan struggled too much and so it was easier to have more centralized editing than distributed editing. The problem is that administrative staff didn't have enough technology skills. Titan could improve by having two level of editors... full editors using Titian as it is now and then basic editors that would interact with a page similar to interacting with a Facebook page.
  • Can be slow at times when you want to quickly move between screens in Titan. This may be the result of our specific hardware that Titan is implemented on.
  • Sometimes need to edit HTML directly to fix font/formatting problems.
  • Wish CMS integrated Google Web Analytics to allow viewing of page analytics while editing.
  • Wish CMS provided help during a responsive design migration by inspecting HTML and highlighting elements (such as tables) that require modification.

  • Utilizing a Filter to determine what shows on a page saves countless hours of configuring content that should be displayed on a page - it's been a lifesaver how easy it is to set up too.
  • Smart Search takes the search box and makes it magical. Common misspellings and alternate names can still send a user to the proper page!
  • Data nodes and filters can also be configured to Find a Dealer, Doctor, Location etc. It puts the power into a users hands and makes is easy to use.
  • Adding link analytics to find broken links would be helpful.
  • Overwriting an existing file in a file pile, during initial upload could be made easier. Time spent tracking down an original on your network (outside of Titan) to do it properly is painful.
  • A Training Video Library would be very helpful. Sometimes, just knowing it can be done and a brief visual of the concept is all you need.

  • Layout/structure of information - Fairly intuitive, it is easy to search for content (within the CMS) if your website is large. However, a CMS truly can only be as organized as the user is.
  • WYSIWYG editor - Creating and publishing pages is extremely easy, the WYSIWYG editor standard, but gets the job done. Applying styles, linking content, adding tables, videos, etc is all very simple.
  • Customizable - There is no limit of possibilities of page layouts, styles, data organization, etc. If you have HTML experience, you can really create anything you'd ever need in the Titan Administration area (where you have access to page layouts and styling).
  • I would love to see a "View this Page" button after a page has been updated/published. Every time I publish a new page, I have to open a new browser window, navigate to a different tab, copy the page url "example/example/example" and paste it after "www.mywebsite.com" in order to preview the new page/content.
  • If Titan and WordPress were in a beauty competition, there is no way that Titan would win. Titan's dashboard, buttons, etc are dated and bland, and is in dire need of a refresh.
  • A drag and drop to upload feature would be very helpful.
  • Creating forms is very cumbersome and the pop-up window in which the form is created needs to be revamped. The font-size is much too small and it is not as customizable as it could be.

  • It gets easier, after taking a couple starter courses and really digging into detail with what Titan could do, it became super user-friendly and I actually enjoyed learning new things about the product.
  • The support group for Titan was extremely helpful. Whenever I had a question or needed some assistance they were always ready and willing to go the extra mile to make sure everything was accounted for.
  • Titan made it super easy to be able to preview and save recent work before making it live on the website. This really helped in getting an idea of how to improve simple texts and pictures.
  • Without taking any kind of beginners course through Titan, I found there was a lot of navigation that was very confusing.
  • Sometimes you really have to dig to find what you are looking for. For example, when there is a table of contents and you have multiple pages under that parent page, it can be very confusing as to which page has the actual information on it and which page you have to tweak in order to get it on the one you are aiming for.
  • Although Titan made it easy to preview your work before going live, sometimes items did not show up or were in different positions then what they would be in when it goes live. This made it very frustrating to tweak to get that perfect spot.
