I will be working on a public facing SharePoint 2010 site and I just have a couple questions. I have looked through the forums which helped with the majority of my questions but I just need some more info on the following:
1) How does a person make changes to the SharePoint site? Such as modifying/adding pages? In a normal intranet environment a user will automatically be given the correct access levels based on their login. Would a user administrate the SharePoint site by logging into the public site through Forms Authentication?
2) Templates - When working on intranet sites, I normally re-use the existing SharePoint templates and make some small modifications. A public site will need to have a further custom/look and feel. What would be the best approach to making a new designed template? Something along the lines of: http://www.recovery.gov?
How much customisation is involved customising a site like this (front end)?
Thanks for any help.
