Living in a Multi-World - Sites, Queries, Standard Values, and Personalization
As a Sitecore developer, we always want to keep personalization in mind. Which means, we also want to keep the idea of "datasources" in mind.
On a standard website, headers and footers with datasources seem easy enough. Just set the datasources for header and footer on every page's standard values, and call it done. Publish to live. If personalization is needed, we can just go to the standard values again and set the personalization there. It would, of course, carry over to the other pages that the template is based off of.
But, imagine a world were a client wants something more than one website. They want a "multi"-site application.
