There are a lot of articles out there that will talk up how awesome a particular CMS is and another article with an equal number of complaints.  A CMS is awesome, provided you‘ve chosen the right CMS for your end goals and have a professional helping you make the most of the software.  While it’s nice to think that you can easily use a site CMS bundle right out of the box, the fact is that your site will be far more valuable to you if a professional assists in building it.

Here are some of the top CMS complaints and how to avoid their pitfalls.

Recently, while building a page full of audio snippets for a client, we ran into a show-stopping bug.  The page was comprised of 12 blocks.  Each block highlighted a voice artist and included a pure HTML5 player to allow users to hear voice samples.  In the initial testing, we had just 3 of these voice artist blocks on the page.  We had successful playback in Internet Explorer 8 and 9 as well as Chrome, Sarfari and Firefox.
