Should I be able to navigate to blogs if all blog pages and posts are drafts? I get a 404 error once I click on any blog. It doesn’t show my post 23. June 2017

Sorry, but no. Blog drafts are content items, not pages. They need a page to ‘recognize’ them to display. There is a Preview button if you want to check your work before hitting Publish.

This is possible if you’re logged into Sitefinity.  Once you log in, click the “Live Site” link at the top of the backend.  You’ll return to the website, with one addition – a black pencil box on the right of the screen.  Click the box and you’ll see an “Edit Content” window like this:

Can’t seem to find the subscribe button, are you still emailing subscribers? 30. August 2016

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.

How can we make a full screen website with Sitefinity CMS? 21. September 2015

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.

You published a news feature “Why Sending Emails to 50 or More People from Outlook/Exchange is Bad News” where you recommended using 3rd party services such as Constant Contact or MailChimp to avoid blacklisting or security issues. Does the Sitefinity Email feature resolve any of this, or do you still recommend a “whitelisted” service? 21. September 2015

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.
