    Our company has an internal installation of MOSS 2007. We were considering using Ektron but I found SiteFinity and have started to build a case to go with it rather than Ektron.

    One issue we have is that we'd like to pull content from our internal installation of SharePoint for display on the website(s). Ektron has a feature to push out a 'copy' of the SharePoint data to Ektron. While this is nice it isn't Ideal for us as we'll eventually have several model websites (diff. domains) based on the same shared content and we'd like to have the data pulled directly from SharePoint rather than a copy pushed to each website CMS installation.

    So, if I could get some Ideas from here that would make this possible using SiteFinity I think I'll be able to make my case. I understand it'll probably be a custom module of some sort interfacing with the SharePoint API or web services.

    Any advice is appreciated!

    Hello Allen,

    Sitefinity doesn't support using content from Sharepoint out-of-the-box. We think it would be easy to create a user control that takes the content from Sharepoint. Once you have this data, you have two options:
    1) Display the information directly
    2) Store the information to the Sitefinity database for later use, using the Sitefinity API.

    Sitefinity supports sharing of information between several web sites out-of-the-box. If you choose the second option, then every piece of information that you take from Sharepoint could be shared between several sites, but stored in a single database.

    I hope you find this answer helpful. Let us know if we could assist you with anything else.

    Greetings,
