Making Pretty Sites based on SharePoint

While most of my experience is, by design, focusing on using Microsoft SharePoint in a way which does not try to do much more than “out of the box” capability and design, I recognize that there is a place for making a web site based on SharePoint to not look so “techy”. I ran across the web site http://www.wssdemo.com/Pages/topwebsites.aspx which provides links to sites based on Microsoft SharePoint which are indeed not “techy”.

    Rob,Perfect timing for the WSS link. I’m the designated admin for our WSS intranet, which has a really boring home page. Thsi will motivate me to make it better in 2009.Glen Alleman

    Glen,While “possible” … I’m not sure I would spend my money doing “pretty” sites in SharePoint if “pretty” is a main objective. I’m VERY impressed that it can be done; but gosh, given the skills that are required adn I can’t help but think it was a herculean effort which probably was achieved at great cost. That being said, exploiting the underlying capability surely saved money. A dilema.
