Prescriptive Guidance for SharePoint Server 2007 Web Content Management Sites
There's a great article that Andrew Connell recently published that's worth a read, if you touching SharePoint currently or will be in the near future. The article, Prescriptive Guidance for SharePoint Server 2007 Web Content Management Sites, addresses some common things you should keep in mind in planning, architecting, designing and implementing your Publishing sites.
Here's a summary on what the article is all about:
In Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007, Microsoft has taken the best concepts and capabilities from an earlier product, Microsoft Content Management Server 2002, and added them to the SharePoint platform. These new capabilities, known as Web content management (WCM), facilitate the creation of content-centric sites on the SharePoint platform. Although they are SharePoint sites at their core, these sites have additional functionality that is facilitated by publishing features. These SharePoint features add special libraries and lists to SharePoint sites. Sites on which the publishing features are activated are known as publishing sites.
Publishing sites adhere to most, if not all, of the prescriptive guidance and generally accepted best practices for SharePoint sites. However, because of the non-collaborative nature of publishing sites and their generally larger audience, they require additional considerations and planning to be implemented successfully. This article addresses many areas that are specific to deploying successful and scalable publishing sites in the enterprise.
