    Hi,

    I have downloaded and successfully installed the demo version of Sitefinity version 3.0.  I am impressed with many of the features, however am surprised that I cannot upload documents and embed links to them in your system.  I understand that this is not a document management system, however, I need this feature in the CMS I select for my organization.  Any thoughts on this, or did I overlook something?

    Hi Charles,

    Thank you very much for your interest in Sitefinity and contacting us.
    Creating a document library module is in our ToDo list, but we still cannot commit to a strict timeframe as to when it will be available. Currently, there are 3 ways to achieve something similar. However, none of them allows dynamic management of documents.

    First, you can use the Document manager of the Generic Content control to attach documents. To see how it works, do the following:
    1. Select a page in the Site Map.
    2. Click Edit this page.
    3. Drag a Generic Control control and click Edit in the control header.
    4. Click on the Document manager icon. (DocumentManager1. jpg)
    6. Click Upload Documents. See DocumentManager2. jpg.
    By default, the UploadDocumentsPaths property is set to ~/Files and an empty folder Files is automatically created.

    Second, you can use the Sitefinity File Manager to upload documents. This is how to do it:
    1. Go to Files.
    2. Select a folder where to upload the file(s).
    3.Click Upload files.
    4. Browse to select  the file(s) to upload.
    5. Click Upload.

    Third, you can use the HyperLink control to insert a link to a document:
    1. Select a page in the Site Map.
    2. Click Edit this page.
    3. Drag a Generic HyperLink control and click Edit in the control header.
    4. Expand the Navigation section.
    5. Click Select > Select a file to set the NavigateURL property.


    Please tell us if these help you or if you meant something different.

    Best wishes,
    Rebecca

    Hi there. Has there been any update on this front since last year? I am looking for a CMS that has some DMS functionality. Sitefinity looks good but I need a DMS module to integrate with it. Joanna

    Hello Joanna,

    This feature is implemented since Sitefinity 3.2. There is a special module named Images and Documents which helps in the management.
    You can login to our Demo Site and see the module in action.

    Let us know if you need any help.

    Sincerely yours,
    Georgi

    Thanks for your reply. Do you recommend any Ecommerce software to integrate with Sitefinity? Also, are there any msn style chat modules that you would recommend?

    Thanks again,

    Hello Joanna,

    Unfortunately I couldn't recommend you any of these so far. I could refer you to some discussions though:
    You may take a look at them and make some notes, or experiment with the software provided. As for the chat systems, we do not have information about any made for Sitefinity so far.
    Kind regards,
    Georgi

    Hello

    I am using SF 3.7 - I have a problem when I try to insert a pdf link or any file link into a generic content. When I browse trough the files I can see all files and navigate folders, but I cannot select a file.

    Well actually I can select a file, but the "I'm done" button does not get enabled again after selecting a file.

    Regards,

    Dennis
