I’ve been working on a WSS site for a friend of mine in my spare time lately, and it’s finally ready to launch!
Take a look if you’re interested: http://www.CambridgeAutogleam.com …
Main highlights of development…
3) Testimonials. Testimonials are driven from a list in the administration site. To add a new testimonial, he just has to add a new item to the list. Items are just ordered by date created, keeping things nice and simple. Data views are used to display them.
4) Twitter interaction. I initially used some of the standard twitter XML data to display updates in the footer of the site – but after deployment to 1and1 it seemed that these feeds were blocked. To work around the issue, I took the approach detailed here: http://blog.bullseyeconsulting.com/archive/2009/01/04/twitter-on-sharepoint.aspx , which meant the call to the twitter update runs from the client rather than server.
Hopefully this proves that interesting and dynamic websites can be built on a WSS platform! Let me know what you guys think…
