We are currently completing a requirements analysis to see if Sitefinity will be a viable option to use as a content management tool on our internet site.
One of the requirements is to allow personalization of content, we had thought the .Net web parts framework would fulfil this requirement.
This has what we have found so far:
You can put your web part on as a control
You can't put web zones on as they have to be created before the page init event
You can put webzones into a master page
You can't put the page in edit mode when in "design" mode of the web part.
If you move stuff around from webzone to webzone it doesn't appear to save the settings either.
Are web parts supported? Or is there another way to acheive personlization?
