I have no choice but to use v13 as a production server now. There are too many things wrong with v12 that prevented me from switching. The user interface in v13 is a huge improvement and allows me to now get away from v10 and v11.
The problem I have is how to setup Customer Portals now. Since v13 takes away webforms, I will need to find a 3rd party solution to accomplish this.
I cannot afford to use the standard desk because there is a danger of me missing some minor permission and allowing customers access to my core system. Updates also frequently have unexpected consequences, so this is not an option.
Most importantly, being forced to use the “desk” interface takes away all of the custom html, css,etc. that was available to customize the portal to the business needs. I, for one, am a fan of customer portals and am looking for alternatives.
I would prefer a solution that does not come with a monthly subscription, but will consider all possibilities.
Any suggestions? What is everyone else using?
