Excellent Guide to Site Server P&M,
By A Customer
This review is from: Site Server 3.0 Personalization and Membership (Programmer to Programmer) (Paperback)
Basically, Site Server is a complex product and no book is going to make it much simpler. Having said that, Howard's book makes a good job of the material at hand.
Plus Points ----------- Most stuff you need to know about P&M is in this book.
Much easier to read than the supplied MS documentation.
Very thorough guide to configuring your server.
Focused on what most real large scale websites need - NO FrontPage, NO MS Access, NO Windows Authorization. Having said that, if you want to run a small Intranet with Site Server then this book is maybe not for you.
Negative Points --------------- No JScript examples.
Not much on the rest of Site Server, but then maybe the book would have been 3000 pages...
Even now going of date - no mention of Site Server SP2, NT SP4 and focus is on SQLServer6.5, not on version 7.
Robert's ugly face dominates the front and back covers and even the spine. Is the man an egomaniac?
