We use Sitefinity for our corporate intranet and the main feature of the home page is that users can add/remove/arrange widgets on their homepage (similar to iGoogle). The way it was implemented by the previous developer though, is that the "home" page is NOT a Sitefinity page. The home page in Sitefinity has no content and a redirecting page was created and configured to have multiple URLs, including ~/home. So, browsing to the intranet redirects to a page outside of Sitefinity.
I would like to implement a solution that allows for the same functionality but uses a standard Sitefinity page for the home page as I make the switch to using SSO via Ldap using a Security Token Service (as detailed here
). I'm wondering if anyone has either done this or has suggestions that would allow users to add custom widgets to the home page via the Front End.
