    Guys,

    So far far from a User Perspective, Sitefinity 3 is a VAST improvement over 2.x.  Kudos to you for that.

    Do you plan on having the built in modules open source?  That would really help with learning how to build modules as well as customizing them.

    Thanks,
    Craig

    I think they said a Jobs module would come with source code and have additional documentation. Christmas Beta?

    You can use Reflector to look at the Blog, News, and Poll code, but this is a waste of time because after looking at the nolics developer guide (at www.nolics.com home page) it says that nolics writes much of the code when your project is compiled.

    I am also very eagerly awaiting some more info on creating modules.

    Sincerely,

    Ben

    Hello guys,

    Indeed, the new release will ship an open source module - the Jobs module which will be also documented and should clarify the creation of the modules process. We rely very much on your opinion about the modules architecture and usability, so your feedback will be more than welcome.

    Kind regards,

    Are you going to have all three modules open source, or just the news?  I think having all three would be most beneficial to us as well as your product.  It would enable the most flexibility for customizing them, and also the most potential for learning how to build a module properly.

    Hello Fregas,

    There is going to be one open source module and it will not be the news module. We are going to ship the sample "Jobs" module shortly and it  should serve as a case study on how to create your own custom modules.

    Hope this clarifies the situation.

    Is the "jobs" module to be found?  I'd like to take a look at it.
    Thanks

    Late reply, but I wanted to relay some exchanges I had about this sample module with Doug Butscher (http://blog.dougbutscher.com/):

    From Doug:

    I get errors from the CommandPanel.ascx, talking about RadMenu.Net2 and RadTreeView.Net2, as well as the missing server tags.

    From Gabe:

    RadControls were previously spread among separate assemblies and files stored in ~/RadControls.  Now all of those assemblies and files have been combined into  Telerik.Web.UI.dll.  The sample module created above probably references those old separate assemblies.  You can remove the references to RedMenu.Net2 (etc, etc) and replace with a single reference to Telerik.Web.UI.

    From Doug:

    It was a bit more than you mentioned, but I appreciate you pointing me in the right direction.

    The RadTreeView.Net2 and RadMenu.Net2 was all over the sample code, so I had to change it to the Telerik.Web.UI. In addition, there were a bunch of server controls referencing Telerik.WebControls, which also had to be changed to Telerik.Web.UI. Because the menu and tree controls were consolidated, so did their tags in the markup. I'm actually glad all this had to be done because it forced me to actually look at the controls, instead of just dropping, configuring, and binding.
     
    It seemed like the event wiring for the sample page controls was weirded out, so I rebuilt the CommandPanel with the new versions of the controls, wired up the handlers, and it seems to work.

    Now I'm looking at a functional Contact management system. Now that I can actually see the code, and know exactly where it will hit the SQL tables, I can extend and cannibalize as necessary.
     
    After that's done, I'll need to hook into the Membership/Security APIs so I can get the user context to see who can CRUD what.

    -------------

    As you can see Doug did all the heavy lifting on this.  I really appreciate the feedback and I wanted to preserve it for anyone else who is looking at this sample module.
