    Designing websites for Sitecore

    A friend of mine has put me in touch with an organisation who want their website redesigned. I understand they are using Sitecore as their CMS.

    I have not come across Sitecore before so was wondering if anyone out there had any advice on what I as a designer need to be aware of and how I should approach this project.

    I am primarily a designer who is fairly proficient in XHTML and CSS but don't have any programming skills. Will I need to work alongside someone who does or is Sitecore easy for a non-programmer to use?

    Thanks in advance.

    If we are talking about this Sitescore (which is the only one I know of) then it is not a CMS, it is a tool for testing Accessibility, SEO, Quality, Content, Spelling, Compliance and over 30 other tests.

    So basically a website scanner for testing if it passes regulations etc. I couldn't find any results for sitescore cms.

    Just looking through client examples there are some sites that have been coded very well and others that are dire! That would suggest that the CMS has everything to hand - how difficult/complex it is to work with I've no idea but requesting a demo wouldn't hurt.
