I'm looking to create a top-level site for a site collection (an intranet) in SharePoint 2010. The top-level site is initially (first version) supposed to contain an intranet news feed as well as some links (to external sites and whatnot). Later on
(later version), it is desired to add personalization to this site - i.e. user-centered content and the ability for the user to customize the "Home" page to some extent (the News feed should always appear), etc.
I am a bit confused, or rather unsure, of what site template to use?
I have experience of developing Web Parts (primarily what I've been working with in the SharePoint 2010 platform), but very little experience of setting up sites using as much out of the box functionality as possible. Based on what I've read there
was a suitable site template available in SharePoint 2007, but I'm yet to find one for SharePoint 2010. At the moment I'm considering to set up the News feed using the Content Query Web Part. Thankful for any suggestions, tips or hints.
