I'm new to sitefinity and currently evaluating this CMS to replace our current one (drupal), I really disklike drupal and like the fact that Sitefinity is based on .net. Although I am not a developer, I am a systems admin I have limited knowledge in developing .net applications.
One of our major requirements is the ability for our end user's to edit pages themselves. I work for a univeristy where professors have a "profile" page that lists various information. I've been reading and I know its possible to extend the built-in profile elements, and I plan to do this and populate it with information from Active Directory. But beyond the simple, name, picture, address, email etc, they have more detailed information that they like to maintain themselves. I know I could give them access to the backend page, but I don't want to do that and I think it would confuse the users.
Is it possible, like in drupal, DNN, and joomla, to have once a user logs in, be able to edit a certain page with Radedit?
In our current cms, once a user logs in, and go to a page they have permission to edit, they get a little icon that says edit page, which loads the web editor.
I should clarify i know that its possible, but is it possible without some heavy custom devoping? Are there kb articles/documentation on how you can do this?
Thanks in advance for your help.
