  • How to associate Image Gallery with content item (e.g. news item) - finishing touches

    by
    I've wrote a blog post few days ago on subject of associating ImageGallery with content item (such as news item). Apparently, I was in such a hurry that I didn't notice that single images could not be opened once the gallery displays. Now, this comes from the fact that both ...
  • Working with ContentView designers (part 3): ContentSetting control

    by
    Sitefinity in its current version comes with two built-in settings: TextSetting and ContentSetting.

  • How to associate Image Gallery with content item (e.g. news item)

    by
    Reading through the support tickets I’ve come across an interesting request. One of our clients wanted to know how to associate an image gallery with a content item.

    In case you’ve missed the forum announcement, we have released Sitefinity 3.5 last week. I’ve been out of office on a vacation  - carefully scheduled to avoid prerelease madness – so I couldn’t blog about it sooner. Anyhow, long story short – it is out. The release notes, together with ...
  • Sitefinity controls - new topics in Developer Manual

    by

  • New developer manual published

    by
    We have published new developer manual and we are not happy with it. But, that’s the good news. Namely, we weren’t able to explain everything we wanted, but we also didn’t want to make you wait six months until we are “happy”, so we decided we will release the new ...

  • ArchiveControl workaround - per popular demand

    by
