Overall Satisfaction with Jahia

Jahia is being used across the whole organization. We use Jahia to build various types of landing pages—from a shopping cart, marketing's campaign pages to regular travel information type content. Jahia software helps us display and manage our content the way we want. Personally I'm able to build virtually any type of page I desire based on layout preferences.
  • It's flexible and accommodating from a page layout perspective
  • It works with other content production platforms like Bootstrap
  • It simultaneously supports multiple users
  • User interface not exactly informative at first glance
  • Lack of basic features such as multiple photo upload selection
  • It always reloads any page's updates to the top
  • Removes some pieces of html after "edit" refresh, like Bootstrap's icons
  • Edit's mode window size doesn't reflect actual size of a content column's width
  • It's secure
  • Helps to deliver a message or explains a product
  • It doesn't have direct impact on overall business objectives—it only supports those objectives
Jahia is flexible and customizable so it allows its users to develop different of pages. However, such work requires additional resources and expertise of third party professionals. Other products I used have been more self sufficient by providing a high range of tools, tutorials, forums and support. In Jahia it seems not to be very easy to move between this or that look or layout.
In my opinion, Jahia does good job supporting any static and landing pages, where content lives and is not updated on regular basis. However, blog type content or a multimedia would be harder to manage. I couldn't find Jahia's offered widgets to be working the way I would like them to. It seems like that side of the software is not very much supported.
