    Hello Prasanna,

    Thank you for using our services.

    What I can suggest to start with is our Sitefinity overview article. Then you can also review the
    documentation articles on how to create a project in Sitefinity using the Project Manager:

    Create projects
    Create a project
    Create a new or select an existing project
    Configure and start a project
    Work with Sitefinity Project Manager

    After you create a project and run it in browser, you can refer to our documentation articles on how you can create pages and content in your new Sitefinity project:

    Pages Overview
    Content: Create and manage website content

    Then you have can use our built-in widgets on your pages to display the content you have created:

    Widgets: Add content and functionality to pages
    Add widgets on pages and templates

    I hope the above information helps.

    Regards,

    Hi Punitha,

    In order to view on the frontend the page you have created in Sitefinity, please click on the View link of the specified page. If you have not set any permissions for this page, users can request this page by its url and see its content.

    In Sitefinity you can set permissions to your pages and specify the roles who have permissions to view, edit, and delete one particular page or all the pages you have created. Please refer to the following documentation article for more details about granting permissions for pages.

    Hello Punitha,

    In order to make your website public and allow all the users to access it, you need to deploy and host your project. Please refer to the following documentation article for more details about deployment.

    You may also find useful the following articles on how you can configure IIS to host Sitefinity projects and run the project on IIS:

    Configure the IIS to host Sitefinity projects
    Run projects on IIS

    Hi Telerik Team, 

    is there any option to set permission to a column to allow only images or forms. like in my sitefinity page, im using three columns layout with width 33% + 34% + 34%
    here i need to set permission for column 1 to allow only image, in same way column 2 should allow only form and column 3 should allow only nav pane, and also if users try to drag and drop any other widgets except this three it should not allow to drop. Is it possible to do.?

    Thank you.
