We are. The email signup box got taken off the homepage by a WordPress Update recently. I fixed it; you can subscribe now. Thanks for calling it out.
Hello! If you’re using a newer version of Sitefinity, the basic page templates should default to full-size. Creating custom page templates makes it easy to set full-size by default too.
Sitefinity’s newer versions incorporate a “Digital Marketing Platform” suitable for email marketing. It does incorporate security protections, and is usable for small business email. However, we usually recommend a dedicated email services provider (such as Campaign Monitor) if you communicate with customers frequently via email.
An excellent question. When we started this blog, we wanted to keep it separate from the main site. At the time our main site ran on Sitefinity 3.7, which did not have the multi-site capability needed to run multiple discrete websites. Since WordPress is a simple and quick-to-setup blogging platform, we opted to use it.
A year?! Wow, that seems way too long. I can only think of two reasons a Sitecore-to-Sitefinity migration would take so long:
- The site is *huge*. I’m talking huge even for an enterprise site, thousands of pages, high-functioning tools welded into Sitecore, etc.
- Sitecore itself is making the migration difficult.
I’d suspect the latter, frankly. Sitefinity can handle enterprise sites just fine. You might have to manually re-enter some content, but that doesn’t take a whole year.
If you’d like, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the details. Maybe we can shorten that timetable.
P.S. – Fair warning, we may ask if it’s okay to write a blog post regarding your question! You will receive first-name credit if so.
