One of my clients at A&G, Bright Horizons, has a school in San Fransisco that just opened its doors this past fall. The headmaster wanted a site that himself and his staff could go in and make daily updates – to keep parents informed of the school work and events. We created this site for them in the Content Management System (CMS) of Sitefinity which worked out beautifully.
Sitefinity is a CMS tool that is built in ASP.net. Connecting to a SQL database Sitefinity stores all its information in tables in the database. I utilitzed Sitefinity’s built in capabilities to create the pages and dropdown menu. However, I created my own Mater Templates (for the layout) as well as my own templates for the contact form.
The school’s staff can now login through a web based interface and make easy updates through a word-like editor without affecting any of the code. They can also add new photos and pages!
