Visual Studio .NET vs. Front Page 2003

  Asked By: Damien    Date: May 05    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 959

We are just starting to get a SharePoint installation going and
management wants to modify the "look and feel" of the installation. I
have Visual Studio .NET installed (but have never use it) and am
expected to use it to modify our SharePoint using it. I was told at a
recent Microsoft demonstration of SharePoint to NOT use Visual Studio
because it has a nasty habit of corruption the files. They recommended
using FrontPage 2003 instead.

Has anyone on the list using Visual Studio have any problems editing
SharPoint files? My thoughts are to ditch Visual Studio in favor of
FrontPage (at least for SharePoint).

I've used Visual Studio to edit some of the site templates, and the site
definition (individual) files with no noticeable problem, however to edit
the portal look and feel I pretty much always use FrontPage 2003, the only
drawback is it unghost the pages, so if your using templates then the page
you edit will no longer be directly tied to that template.
