« IKEA North America
It soon became apparent that whenever the client required updates in the site chrome, each site would have to be manually fixed and pushed live. The solution was a master page templating container, set up as a separate site. It wraps around content (using virtual directories) in several microsites.
We can now maintain page chrome (which mirrors client's corporate site) separately from content, and update across subdomains effortlessly. Eliminating all that code that used to be duplicated across sites has dramatically decreased the maintenance burden. Before I set this up, each site we built that was supposed to resemble an IKEA site had to be updated separately.
