Was considering purchasing but!!

Hi,
We have a client website in the process of construction and need to be able to provide some CMS facility and due to already having a number of webassist packages immediately thought of powerCMS over our usual package provided by Interactive Tools which is more expensive and is licenced by site so you can see the immediate attraction of PowerCMS, but to be honest I am concerned over the number of issues people seem to be having with installation and configuration (lack of simple instruction) and the fact that although an issue was apparently found with images it would seem that the fix hasnt been implemented into the latest software but is simply a downloadable fix which to be honest concerns me, I would expect that a new purchase now would not have the acknowledged problem and that the fix would be implemented.

I have also taken a look at the online demo and the first thing I tried was inserting a table as the client is likely to place some content in tables to be able to control layout but found that there doesnt seem to be a way to merge cells that I could see and worse still when right clicking the table to bring up the editing menu the secondary menu providing functionality displays behind the first level menu meaning you cannot see the menu options to ascertain what they do. I am using IE8 but even viewing in compatibilty mode I get the same issue which isnt filling me with any confidence that the product is fully tested or reliable.

We do need a CMS solution for client sites but am not convinced that PowerCMS is yet robust enough to do the job, obviously we only see problems in the forum so I would appreciate any feedback from those who have implemented it and are happy with it from an installer point of view and whether it has been well received from clients.

Thanks in advance for any feedback.
