Publish template question

  Asked By: Hannah    Date: Mar 27    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 729

This is a pretty basic question on developing a internet facing web site. I am developing a web site that has an "Intranet" face and "Internet" face. I am going to use the "Publishing Template" for the "internet" site. Now the question is

a) Should the UI designer do the changes to the design of the page ONLY in the internet portal and submit for workflow - What else are the options ?

b) In some blogs I read that you can publish content in the "Intranet" site and then move them to "Internet" site. I presume they are talking about word documents / excel sheets as contents. How do we do that... Is this feature already available or should we write code to move files from my intranet portal to internet portal

c) Convert word document to web page which would eventually show in internet site ... Can the word document be edited and approved at the intranet site and somehow moved to the "Internet" site ? How can i achieve this.

Thanks for reading. Any help as links / articles / blogs / anything would be much appreciated.

In my opinion, I think there is no such “disadvantage” with the first method. The first method provides a convenient way to manage the sites, while the second method provides a more secure and feasible way to manage the sites. Which method to be adopted is dependent on your requirement.

There are some scenarios when we need to use a dedicated application pool:
l To separate authenticated content  from anonymous content.
l To isolate applications that store passwords for and interact with external business applications (for example, Business Data Catalog connections).
l To isolate applications where users have great liberty to create and administer sites and to collaborate on content.

There are some references to help  you plan the infrastructure of the SharePoint,
Hope this helps.

The disadvantage of option A is that you haven't got a separate authoring environment.
* So say you've got a custom component that you want to deploy and you want to see what that would look like with live content  on it on your authoring farm. In the case of just one web  application it would be visible to your anonymous users right away as there is nog approval on custom development that's either deployed to the server or it isn't.
* Also, as soon as your content is approved  it's live data. You can't setup a content deployment schedule as there is nothing to deploy your content to. It's already there. As soon as the content is approved it's available to anonymous users. And content will be approved per page. So if you were making a lot changes to your site  and you want to launch the new content say July 1st that would be difficult. If you would be using 2 farms you could easily achieve that using a content deployment job that would deploy all approved changes to all pages at the same time.
