We have been evaluating Sitefinity for a few of our clients. One of these clients had a few questions today that I wasn't able to answer.
1) Can they add banner ads to the home page.
This one seemed pretty straightforward - lots of ways to accomplish this. It sounds like several people have built custom modules to accomplish ad rotation / ad management. They could implement ad management service like OpenX. Or they could just upload an image and put a link on it.
So I fired up a test site that we've been working on, uploaded an image using the generic content control and tried to create a link for that image. I wasn't able to get the WYSIWYG editor to create a link with an image without going in the html.
Has anyone else had problems with this?
2) How would we handle a page for executive bios?
How does everyone handle functionality like this in Sitefinity? Obviously, you could have the client create a page for every person and just create a link to that page. That seems pretty inefficient to me. Do you mostly create a custom module for this type of thing? The client we're working with doesn't have a huge budget to work with, so I'm trying to determine the best way to build this functionality - keeping in mind their budget.
3) Can we create content that we will be able to contract and expand with a mouse click?
Sorry for all the newbie questions - I have done some research and we have a sandbox installed with the asp 2.0 version of Sitefinity. I really was hoping to tap into the experiences that people here have had to see if we're missing some obvious solutions.
Thanks for your time.
