First of all let me say that I am fairly new to sitefinity and my first opinion is that I am very impressed about the easy of use and extensibility of the system.
The company I am currently working for is considering the use of Sitefinity as one of the building blocks of their web applications, and I am trying to find out whether the functionality the current CMS offers is portable to Sitefinity.
The company creates websites for customers that in most cases want to present the web application to more then one of their own customers, so some customization is required.
Basicly what we want is create a site for brand A, and create a "subsite" for brand B, with as little configuration as possible, so some "inheritance" would be nice here. Customization should be done for:
- Style issues (themes)
- Menus (Brand B might require one or more additional pages or might not want all pages required by A)
- Pages / UserControls: disclaimers will have another text, and some other columns might by required in the usercontrols, so the "same page" might be showing another usercontrol.
The "B" site will be on the same server as the "A" site, and will use the same backoffice application, and there can be up to 8 different brands for an application.
What would you recommend us in order to keep this maintainable (subsites, site templates, ...?)
Thank you very much in advance for your advice.
