In my first post in this series, we walked through the process of building a simple component. Let's go a bit further now and build something very useful in Sitecore: a custom form. While a module like Web Forms for Marketers can definitely help you build forms, it can be heavy handed and sometimes doesn't quite fit the bill. That's where form components come in. Luckily, BrainJocks SCORE has a few features and patterns that can help you out, and keep your content authors happy at the same time.
When building a new site using BrainJocks SCORE, are you paying attention to the styling of the Experience Editor view?
Some project team members may consider this a waste of time, especially for projects that are low on budget and/or need to be finished very quickly. But neglecting Experience Editor has meaningful consequences - and your Content Administrators will be the ones who suffer. A frustrating authoring and editing experience can make it impossible to leverage the full power of even the best website.
Our ultimate goal with BrainJocks' projects is to style Experience Editor to look as close to the front end of the site as possible, optimizing the admin experience. I'll explain two types of Experience Editor styling that we address when we build websites.
