A Closer Look at Ektron’s Features

Ektron's extensive functionality makes it ideal for large-scale content management.

  • Make Edits on the Page
  • Ektron’s editing tool lets users make changes within a page, rather than navigating them to a separate editing page. During this process, which Ektron calls “in-context editing” or “WYSIWYG editing,” users can see exactly how their content will appear on the page within different design elements or modules. The intuitive editing interface looks similar to Microsoft Office, so users can benefit from using tools that feel familiar to them. An off-page editing tool is also available if needed.


  • Customize With Widgets
  • PageBuilder allows designers and developers to create custom pages through wireframing and the creation of widgets for commonly-used page elements. Users can then easily add content, lists, images, videos, forms, RSS feeds, and more by simply dragging and dropping widgets.


  • Responsive Design
  • Through definition and media queries, Ektron adapts your website based on browser screen size, resizing full pages and content for a truly responsive experience. Compression settings are also available so that developers can enable faster loading for mobile.


  • Enterprise Search
  • Ektron lets you choose the best option for powering your enterprise-level search. With SOLR, Microsoft Search Server, or FAST, your customers and team will be directed to the right results. Ektron also allows for integration with document management systems such as Microsoft Sharepoint.
