I have created 2 modules using the module builder
Curriculum Categories contains a list of curriculum categories a document can belong to. Each Curriculum Document item contains information about a downloadable document such as its curiculum category, title, description, page count, etc.
I used SF Thunder to create a custom field control and selector using the "Sitefinity Dynamic Items Field Control Selector" template to create the one-to-many relationship between the 2 modules. First, I've gotta say that this is VERY cool. I had been struggling doing this manually for hours using info from the the various blogs, videos, and docs on the SF site but had no success getting it to work. Using Thunder, it literally took less than 15 minutes from start to finish.
So now I have a slick custom selector that allows me to pick which category a document belongs to. All is working fine except that in the back end, the Curriculum Documents content list shows the category Guid rather than the category name which isn't particularly useful (see attached image).
Is there any way to get around this?
