    Hi Guys,

    Can you tell me if there is a best practice method of working on a client's Small Business site in a development environment? We have 4 people working on a single project for a client and of course, we are only allowed to make one connection to the CMS at a time.

    Should we in future, develop using our own Professional license, then carry the Master Pages and Themes over? The only problem with this method is that we will be writing to a Professional license implementation and I don't know if after we have completed the project, it is easy enough to convert/extract the content we would have implemented for the client into a Small Business database.

    If there is a better method of doing this, especially in development environments, we'd appreciate it.

    Thanks

    Hello James
    As a Sitefinity Gold partner, you should be using your NFR license (sitefinity.lic file) for all development.  The different versions of Sitefinity are all the same meaning same DB and code.  We are just limiting the functionality of Sitefinity in the different versions. You do need to understand the limitations of things like number of logins, ecommerce and email campaign management that are features that are different in each version.  Once you go live, then replace the existing NFR Sitefinity license with a valid license for domain name, meaning replace the file sitefinity.lic with a real license.

    All the best,
    Steve

    Hi Steve,

    We have 4 employees trying to develop various templates in a single machine locally(development environment), but we are unable to access the URL or the admin control panel concurrently  though we have purchased 5 user license. Can you shed some light on this?

    Thanks,
    Johnson
