    We are graphic/website designers, used to building (and editing/updating) websites using HTML through the Dreamweaver app.

    A client has contacted us in regard to updating their website. The site is large and would need to be database driven. The client requires that they themselves are able to update the site via a CMS and Sitefinity has been suggested to be used.

    Now Sitefinity appears to be ASP.NET based and this is a system we have very limited knowledge of. Basically I'm trying to find some plain english answers as to whether the "look" of a Sitefinity managed website is easily customisable? Can we create HTML pages that we then import into Sitefinity? Or will there be technical ASP.NET coding going on within these page templates... which needs to be initially hand coded?

    Any information greatly received.

    Thanks in advance,

    Hi martin,

    You can create a html pages and set them as external for Sitefinity. Here is a link from where you can gather more information about the page types, how they can be modified and what the difference between html and Sitefinity pages is.

    We have also provided you with an answer in the other forum thread.

    Best wishes,
