In this tutorial we will review the Sitecore environments, what Sitecore is, and publishing process. This includes what happens when you save, preview your changes, and publish your changes.
- There are two domain names wsb.wisc.edu (prospective students, external audiences), bus.wisc.edu (current students, staff and internal resources)
- Both domain names have an integrated navigation, so a user can go back and forth between the domain names and not know it,
- All edits on wsb.wisc.edu should be submitted as a web team request
- In Sitecore if you save you can preview your changes on preview.domainname
- Published changes go live
