This blog post is a continuation of my talk at the Sitecore user group hosted in Kagool’s Manchester office.
Recently I spoke at the Sitecore User Group at Kagool’s Manchester Office. The topic I covered was based on my experience as a Sitecore front-end developer.
Building custom themes for Sitecore Webforms for Marketers (WFFM) can be a painful and messy exercise. Your stylesheets get bloated, your selectors are too specific and you need to use overriding styles or !important properties. All of this just makes the whole process feel really messy and code quickly becomes unwieldy.
To help solve this problem I decided to create a Webforms for Marketers boilerplate. This blog gives a quick overview of what the boilerplate includes and how it helped me build custom themes for WFFM quickly and consistently.
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.
