    Hi guys,

    I have been looking at CMS systems over the past couple of weeks, including SF. SF seems to do exactly what I want it to technically out of the box (much more so than any other), but, as a product, as far as themes go, it does seem aimed more at the "corporate" website/intranet - as do the RADControls.

    My site is about as far removed from the clean, sleek, corporate image as you can get - it is a marketing site for a theatrical production, and the look is VERY dirty/grungy/rock etc. There aren't many "square" blocks...!

    I do have to create a complete template for whatever CMS I choose from scratch, but would SiteFinity potentially be more difficult to wrangle into a non-standard layout than other CMSes, given its (very beautiful) in the box themes - Vista, XP, Office etc? Or is it as simple(!) as other systems to template?

    Many thanks,

    Martin

    Hi Martin,

    We use the standart ASP.NET website structure. We use ASP.NET Master Pages and ASP.NET Themes and Skins. You can integrate each ASP.NET control or use RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX. You can change the skin of each control and use your custom one instead of the embedded one.

    All the best,
