What good is a site product?

to develop Plone sites on the FS

to quickly create new Plone sites

to inherit from existing Plone sites

to inherit skins from existing Plone sites

to keep a separation from content and structure

to save time

Some of the features I will cover

  1. each site has a Home folder, so
    1. the base Plone folder stays clean
  2. workflow is modified to work
  3. content can be created from site product
  4. keeps skins folders simple, but orginized
  5. can re-run each section on existing site
  6. can duplicate sites for testing or replicating
  7. Site Class include many useful development methods
  8. sites can inherit functions or skins from other sites

    2. modify all aspects of workflow
    3. modify any action
    4. set any content type to use factory
