There isn't some step by step instruction for building  a internet  facing site.  Could you be a little more specific about what exactly you are trying to do?

John,

      Thank you very much for taking time to answer my question.

Here is what I am trying to achieve.

I  have installed sharepoint  2010 on server and created default publishing  site. I have multiple asp classic public facing  websites.

I am looking for how to create these sites using  SP2010.

How do I create multiple pages?

How do I create site structor?

I do I configure these sites to share their content (like news), how can I have different urls for each site.

I understand some of these tasks are more involved, But at least I am looking for a document which shows me how to build a public facing website  with multiple pages step by step.

I have seen the video about contoso.com, but not found any documentation on how to build the same step by step.

Thanks for any help.

Hi Mario,

         Thank you very much for the information. It is kind of helpfull.

But I am suprised to see there is no such document showing step by step how to build a external facing  website. I see so much material on SP 2010 on the web but not yet found any material on which goes into building  public facing websites in detail.

I know sharepoint  is lot more than just CMS, but I think CMS is very important part of Sharepoint 2010. Hope I will see some one write a book are create article series showing how to build very generic website  step step.

 

Thanks

Hi VeeMat,

I think that you are asking too much for an article series - there are lots of moving parts. A lot of the process stuff hasn't changed from 2007, and the definitive book for 2007 WCM is Andrew Connell's Wrox book. I would recommend reading that to get to grips with the process and methodology.

In general, from a developer's point of view, you have the following key stages to developing a public facing  website:

Create an environment to do your development in. This should be as close a match as possible to the final production environment. Create the front end design (HTML, CSS, images) that you want your new site to use. Create a master page and page layouts. Exactly what you need to do here will depend on your requirements and your design. Create any custom user controls / server controls / web parts as required by your functional requirements.

So from a standalone developer's point of view that may be all they need to do. But in most cases there are a number of other considerations:

If you have a team of developers, how do you manage cross-team development and source control? Who is responsible for packaging and build - are you going for automated build servers, is there a build manager in your team? What is the best server topology and configuration to meet your requirements? What strategy are you going to use for testing? Test Driven Development, unit tests, automated UI tests? Or all manual?

All of these are going to depend on your situation - there is often no single correct answer to these questions.

Hi Vee, Bellow is the link the WCM Planning for SP 2010 ( if you look around this link there is planning guidance for each and every aspect Share Point solution ) - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee476993.aspx When it come to making it Internet  facing  site - Use a custom master page - optimised for bandwidth such that it should avoid all the unncessary css and javascript for internet  - Avoid showing lists ( or even any ootb web part) directly but develop user controls (visual web parts) as styling those would call for bigger effort - publishing  content in a publishing page would show without any problem. - Use FBA or anonymous similar to what your classic sites are doing - In 2010 you can have multiple auth methods on same web application without extending it so you might be able to avoid AAM (alternate access maps) and just continue with the ISA or whatever method you are currently using. There is much much more than this as Ben has metnioned, neverthless and it needs much larger effort to roll out public facing site on SP platform - analysis,design,dev,test,deploy,operations,governance - yes every bit is important and is only limited by you know what I mean Best Regards Yogesh Pawar

John,

      Thank you very much for taking time to answer my question.

Here is what I am trying to achieve.

I  have installed Sharepoint 2010 on server and created default publishing  site. I have multiple asp classic public facing  websites.

I am looking for how to create these sites using  SP2010.

How do I create multiple pages?

Publishing sites have a document library called the Pages library - you can navigate to http://yoursite/Pages and you'll see it and be able to add pages. Also for publishing sites the menu in the upper left will have a Create Page item which does the same thing. You can even create folders and have a nice little hierarchy inside the pages library.

How do I create site structor?

The really quick answer for this is to go to Site Actions -> Create Site, but you need to justify why you need subsites. Normally you create subsites because you want completely different look/feel/functionality, like having a meeting workspace site under a team site. Things like Security can be accomplished without any subsites.

I do I configure these sites to share their content (like news), how can I have different urls for each site.

So you'll obviously need a source for the content, lets say a list inside the root site. Other sites can subscribe to the contents of the list using RSS Feeds, its all out of the box SharePoint. SharePoint even has a news site template you can look at, which has it all set up already.

I understand some of these tasks are more involved, But at least I am looking for a document which shows me how to build a public facing website  with multiple pages step by step.

I have seen the video about contoso.com, but not found any documentation on how to build the same step by step.

Thanks for any help.

Hi Veemat,

First, thank you for the feedback.

I agree with Ben Robb that the best book about this topic is the one from Andrew Connell.

I would like to add two more links about sharepoint  2010 for Web Content Management.

The first one on Technet "Web Content Management in SharePoint Server 2010" http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/ff601874.aspx, you will find all the stuff to plan content deployment, caching and performance, ...

The second on MSDN "SharePoint 2010 Developer Resource Centers" http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/bb964529.aspx, under Entreprise Content Management, you will find information about web content management capabilities.

Finally, as the others said, there is much much more than this...

Bye, Mario
