MCMS tip of the day - staging an ASP.NET based MCMS site

  • Comments 5

The Site Stager component shipped with MCMS only allows staging of a ASP based MCMS site - not of an ASP.NET based site.

Although it often would not make sense to get a static snapshot of a dynamic MCMS website, there can be reasons that require to get a static snapshot - e.g. if MCMS is used for help file creation (CHM help files).

As a workaround for this limitation you can use Site Stager .NET which is able to create a static snapshot also from ASP.NET based MCMS sites.

  • Can the stager be used to create a static version of a MS CMS site that can be deployed to a production web server. This way you could not need CMS installed on the web server.

  • Yes, that is possible - but it is only a static version. No dynamic content included.

  • Can you provide some examples on what you consider dynamic content? From what I know, dynamic web site functionality (asp/ pages) are not managed within MSCMS. So, what would dynamic content consist of - that would not work with the stager?

  • The stager will create html pages. No ASP. No ASP.NET.

  • Now that gotdotnet is no longer with us, is there any where else I can get this?
