This should be possible using Sitefinity 4.0's Policies + Configurations. These exist today in the CTP. However, I'll confirm this with the team before I post an 'official' answer.
4.0 will not include an e-commerce module. However, this module is high priority on our list. E-commerce functionality is tentatively planned for Sitefinity 4.2. Specific features or an ETA is not yet available.
Planned for Sitefinity 4.0 or 4.1. This feature will not be delivered with the upcoming BETA. This feature will provide power users with the ability to update their CSS in the administration interface They will be able to preview the changes and apply them. Access to this feature can be restricted using permissions.
This feature is planned and will exist in the official release of 4.0. It will not, however, exist in the upcoming BETA release of 4.0. Concepts or wireframes for this feature have not yet been finalized. After the BETA release we will release information about this feature.
I didn't realize those deleted posts would show up when searching. Hmmmm... Here is the story, I originally made several suggestions when I was showing this internally. However, when we launched we didn't want the forum to be dominated by "Gabe's suggestions"...so I deleted my suggestions. I figured the community would eventually re-add these items...and now it has happened. ;)
Fascinating suggestion. I'm a big Dropbox user and fan.
One quick thought on this. Here is a quote from the Dropbox Terms of Service:
By placing Your Files in your public folder, you hereby grant all other Dropbox users and the public a non-exclusive, non-commercial, worldwide, royalty-free, sublicensable, perpetual and irrevocable right and license to use and exploit Your Files in your public folder. In other words, a file in your public folder can be used by anyone, for any purpose except commercial use.
I'm not sure if this impacts anyone's desire to use Dropbox to host web site files.
The API currently supports adding customizable meta fields for content and pages. We will offer the ability to do this via the interface after the BETA release.
How would custom meta fields for pages work? Would the meta fields be inherited from their parent? I would assume inheritance could also be broken. It seems like, for a big web site, that the custom meta fields could vary wildly based on the section.
