Q. What is standard values in Sitecore?

Standard values were first acquainted in Sitecore 5.3 to overcome


some of the issues experienced with the predecessors of standard
values – “Masters”. In Sitecore 6 masters was totally evacuated and
the idea of standard values assumed control.

Standard values is a method of having default or fallback values for


fields in Sitecore, implying that when items are created, you can
specify a field value that should be used by default. This does
represent custom fields you work, as well as standard fields in
Sitecore such as presentations and insert options. This means that
you can specify a value on the standard values, and when you create
a new item which inherits from this template, it will by default use
the values specified on the standard values.

Every time the content is changed, Sitecore adds it to the publishing
queue. When we select the incremental publish Sitecore will publish only
these items which are added to publishing queue.
The contents added/edited programmatically as well as in content
editor is will be added to publishing queue.

Incremental publish are fastest compared to Republish and Smart


publish as only the edited contents gets published.

Q. How do we implement Sitecore?

Sitecore CMS uses the .NET technology, so if our company is a Microsoft


shop, Sitecore will fit great. Sitecore is better than many other platforms
based on .NET like Sharepoint or Opentext.

Pre-implementation

Before we choose Sitecore or any CMS we have to consider our processes


and workflows. We must to see where will we put our content and how will
we publish it, what strategy and what architecture do we have, what needs
to be changed etc. After we get answers to these questions (which was not
really easy) we can employ a consultant if we have the required money to
help us further. Implementation

After pre-implementation we have to implement our Sitecore CMS


platform. The first phase is gather our staff and make some training to
become certified. Being more than a simple paper, the certification helps
our team to be more in the know of the Sitecore terminology. If this phase
is skipped we will have to do it anyway later ata higher cost so it’s better to
save money now.
