    Hi
    I've been using the community edition for a few months now, and now that I'm a Sitefinity evangalist(!) I've been recommending it to a number of associates, including my current employer (local government). One question though - does the commercial version support the ability to use one server for authoring the content, and a separate production server where the content gets "promoted" to when approved? I've seen no mention of support for this configuration in the workflow documentation.

     

    Thanks in advance

    Andy

     

    PS. When is 3.6 SP3 due out?

    Hi Andrew,

    Community edition does not support workflow. The SP3 will be released withing two weeks.

    All the best,

    Hi, thanks for the quick response but it was the commercial edition I was asking about, not the community ed. Does it support separate authoring and production servers?

    Thanks again
    Andy

    Hello Andrew,

    I would like to thank you about your interest in our CMS and about the recommendations you do. We highly appreciate this!!

    As for your question,
    You will have two instances of the CMS, pointing to one database. Everything that gets promoted to go live on the authoring server, will be visible on the production as well, since the database is the same. You could disable the Admin access on the production if you want, and if everything will happen on the authoring server. The only thing that you should keep in mind though is that the two instances should be the same version of Sitefinity.

    Let me know if I could be of further help!

    Sincerely yours,
    Georgi
