    Hello Will Strohl,

    Thank you for your interest in Sitefinity 4.0.

    Let me try to briefly answer your questions.

    • XHTML Compliant - We support XHTML compliant markup.
    • Canonical URLs - we support this. By default when you create pages urls are generated based on that where in the hierarchy the page is located and on the name of the page. You can however override this and specify different url while creating the page
    • SEO Friendly URLs - By default our urls are generated in a SEO friendly format. This goes both for pages, content items and taxonomies (classifications).
    • XML Site Map - We do have a built in sitemap provider, which stores all pages in a the site map based on ordinals and page hierarchy, however we do not have a control which produces an XML file with your site map.
    • Granular Site Map Priorities - We have granular permissions for all content types in the system. This includes pages - you can set different permissions for each page, or use permission inheritance to set the same permissions for a set of pages.
    • Semantic Menu - By default our menus are rendered as lists and each node is rendered as a list item containing the link to the page and text for the node. Then we apply styling rules to change their appearance. However to answer your question more precisely I will need some further clarification on this one.
    • Google Analytics Integration - Sitefintiy 4.0 is going to ship with an Analytics module which is an integration with GA. Right now you can add GA script to your pages from the Scripts and Styles page toolbox which contains a control for inserting GA script on your page.
    • Search Engine Submission - This has to be done manually.
    • XHTML Compatible Controls - Right now in the beta some controls do not render XHTML compliant markup, however we have those on our to do list for fixing. We will fix the non comliant html for our next releases.

    I hope the above will answer your questions. If you have any other points that need to be clarified, please feel free to contact us.

    Thank you so much for answering those questions.  I have one final one.  Do you support HTTP 301 Redirects for pages that either moved, URL changed, or no longer exist?

    Hi Will Strohl,

    In Sitefinity 3.x you can achieve this by using our Advanced URL Rewriter - you can create rules for pages and make the rewrtier respond with 301 and redirect to the correct resource. This feature is not yet implemented in Sitefinity 4.0, however this feature is a must and will be implemented on a later stage.

    In regards to Semantic Menus - I have verified that currently all of our navigation controls comply with standards for semantic markup.

    Kind regards,
