If you’re a frontend developer new to Sitecore you may not know that Sitecore has a series of page modes which provide different functionality to the content editor. These page modes are Design, Preview and most importantly Experience Editor (previously known as Page Editor).
A few months ago I blogged about “Sitecore Frontend Approach – Quick Start Guide”which got some awesome feedback on Twitter.

When it comes to building websites using a CMS, Sitecore is definitely the way to go! I have been building the frontend of websites in Sitecore for over five years and have not found any other platform yet that gives the flexibility to a frontend developer that Sitecore provides.
Over the past few months I’ve been part of a team developing solutions of real benefit to every digital focused business using Sitecore. For example, how to rapidly create websites with minimal effort which allow cross site shared components with a predefined information architecture, user experience and the option of changing the theme without extra cost.
