If you are considering SiteFinity hosting, you should first learn a few things about it. If you are trying to decide between it and DotNetNuke, you should read this article. SiteFinity is a very flexible Content Management System (CMS) platform. Developers use it to build and maintain everything from intranets and community portals to huge commercial websites. SiteFinity’s architecture complies to.NET standards and it includes CSS, templates, standard user controls, Master pages, and themes. Developers have a lot of freedom because this CMS is built with flexibility and extensibility in mind. They can integrate different applications or use 3rd party modules and controls both fast and easy.
One of SiteFinity’s best features for developers is the extensible “Page Type” and is vital to most of them. Other powerful features include extensible “Page Properties”, advanced query developer interface, “Dynamic, In-Line” links, and “On The Fly, In-Line” photo insertion. These features are aimed at easing the developers’ job and SiteFinity really manages to make the life of web developers a lot easier. This CMS is a direct competitor to the DonNetNuke (DNN) content management system. There are scores of developers using one or the other and the opinions are split. Some say DNN is better and faster, while others strongly stand by SiteFinity.
There are some features people might find interesting when it comes to the SiteFinity content management system. First of all, SiteFinity allows developers to use both Visual Studio themes and master pages when they are building templates. To create a template in this CMS, you need to combine a theme and a master page and then upload it to the CMS. Developers really like the easy with which they can create modules and plug them into the content management system. You can find everything you need to know about creating modules directly on the online help page. Both DNN and SiteFinity focused their user interface on the user. However, we consider that the latter has a better UI.
One major edge over DNN is SiteFinity’s architecture, which uses RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX. You are able to use any tool in the platform project with ease. Further more, this content management system was built following the ASP.NET concept, so.NET developers will find it very easy to understand and work with. Although this makes no difference, the SiteFinity team and technical support are very active with helping developers and answering their questions. The DotNetNuke team didn’t see to be so active, although their community is constantly developing and updating the platform.
